I see that last night in the Conference Barrow played Dover at Barrow. Only 381 miles each way on a Tuesday night in February for Dover fans. and they lost 1-0. Wonderful planning.

Wow, that is amazing. It must be the longest distance any team has had to travel midweek this season, maybe any season. It was a critical game too. I feel sorry for Dover and wonder if they took any fans. Well done if they did!

Two weeks ago on Tuesday 4th February they did the reverse fixture with Barrow winning 2-1.

I think the fixtures may have been rearranged from Saturdays due to weather and FA Trophy games?... lady m.. Dover actually won 2-1 two weeks ago

Perhaps you are right but it still seems a bit extreme. A Sunday would have been better apart from the fact that there would be no trains, roads closed for maintenance and having to leave on Saturday evening!!

And they would have already played on Saturday.. Sunday not really a option. Midweek the only answer really!!

dover my 'third' team so follow it quite closely.

yes-they were both re-arranged fixtures ..
just for interest ,in the game at dover two weeks ago, the barrow team bus broke down ,and they went back on the 30 strong barrow supporters coach and got back at 7am (but don't forget whilst not great for supporters-for players its simply a job and its what they are paid for doing )

i think 10 hardened dover supporters went last night

dover go by train from London (very occasionally fly ) to a lot of long distance games which seems a lot more sensible to me than coaches
