AWAY TRAVEL OFFER TO ALL SUPPORTERS
Over the past few weeks we have been in discussion with Paul Hayward regarding supporters away travel to games and how we could work together to reduce costs for fans in the hope that more would travel to away games supporting the team. With thanks to Paul we have been able to half the cost of away travel to £10.00 per person which is a fantastic offer which also includes your buffet lunch on route to the match.
If you have never travelled with us then please give us a try – Our coaches are provided by Premier Transport based in Crawley, so a local company. The coaches are very comfortable, with decent leg room and very new, some less than a few months old. They have toilet facilities, UBS charging ports at each seat, DVD/Radio for entertainment – usually a bad choice of music CD’s are played – but don’t let that put you off.
We mostly prefer to stop at country pubs, located just off the motorway to have our main stop, for a drink with a buffet lunch provided. However, if you prefer not to drink alcohol and we already have regular travellers that don’t then there is always tea, coffee and soft drinks available at all our stops. With Paul’s agreement we have decided to try it for the two up and coming away matches against Macclesfield on the 7th September and Northampton Town on the 21st September. If this trial is successful it could be offered on future away matches.
Details for Macclesfield are:- 31 already booked on
Saturday 7th September 2019 – 3.00pm kick off
We depart from the stadium at 8.00am and travel up to the Cross Keys in Castle Donington for the buffet lunch which is included in the fare. We will stop at the Watford Gap services for a short comfort/coffee break if time and traffic conditions allow at about 10.00am. We aim to be at the Cross Keys for 11.30am and then depart at 1.00pm arriving at Macclesfield for about 2.15pm. After the game it will be straight back to Crawley with another short comfort stop somewhere on route to- suit the drivers. We would expect to be back in Crawley for about 9.45pm
Details for Northampton Town are:- 33 already booked on
Saturday 21st September 2019 – 3.00pm kick off
We depart from the stadium at 9.30am (we have decided to bring this earlier than previously advertise so that we can get round the M25 a bit earlier). We have buffet stop options should we need to take two coaches – this will be confirmed once we know what the coach situation is. For this match we will allow 15/16 year olds to travel unaccompanied provided we have parent’s permission for them to travel and be dropped off and pick up from the stadium. The return trip to Crawley would be non-stop and we would expect to be back in Crawley for 7.30pm.
Whichever coach you travelled on, please let us know how you felt the day went – travel wise, as we always appreciate feedback and comments.
