    Has anyone seen an U21 game at the Elite Performance Centre?

    I'm looking to go, just interested to hear what people thought of it. Were you able to wander about, or restricted at all in time or access?

      My brother in Law plays for the Under 18's so been half a dozen or so times. Of course your pretty restricted to the reception area and the walk to the pitches - didn't get the feeling you could just wander about.

      I was going to go but it seems like it's quite a way from Lancing Station
      We learned more from a three minute record baby than we ever learned in school

      Probably only 15-20 min walk.

      Very much ushered towards the pitch, certainly not an opportunity to wander as far as I can see.

      So no chance to sneak a look at the 1st team in training?

      Meet in reception, shown to the pitch where the game is played, wander out.

      The first team tend to train in the morning, whereas I thought most of the Under 21 matches were in the afternoon.

      You are directed to parking spaces when you drive up, you have to show your tickets as you enter reception, they have team sheets, you are then you are told the route you can walk - toilet available in reception, pitch has a wooden rail with fence behind it, just on one side and you are restricted to standing alongside this, great views around the facilities to the south and over the downs and across to Brighton. Players have to walk along with you to and from changing rooms.

      Defiantly worth a visit as you see loads of training going on at all levels around you on lots of pitches and see what an unbelievable facility it is, also get to see our great development players.

      But you cannot just wander freely, security is like at the Amex and will stop you.

      Seen quite a few walk it, but obviously easier by car (or taxi from the station) its pretty flat though.

      It's probably good that security is tight! Well it all sounds like a great experience, and I'm interested to see the DS in action.
