"Turn left at the lights, follow the path, 4th bridge down!" , a phrase commonly given to direct away fans to the South Stand.
Having been an Abbey Helper since 2020 (two games before lockdown) last season was my first full season and found the experience very enjoyable.. Apart from directing fans off the bus to the away end , the main role is be the first contact fans (home and away) have upon arrival at the Abbey Stadium, so is good to make a first impression. So a smile and a welcome always goes down well. And other than asking for directions to the South Stand (away fans) or the main stand (home fans, normally first timers) the most common question is where's the pub! However as the main point is to get the fans in the ground, "it's the old turn left..."
I feel the best bit of the job is meeting the fans, both home and away. As in someway you are representing the club. Most are friendly and approachable, some more than others.
So an enjoyable experience and worth recommending, if you don't mind missing the first few minutes of the match! (Think Lincoln were already 2 up by the time I got to my place in the Habbin!)
