Away Travel 2018/19 Season
The Supporters Trust is provisionally planning to run coaches to away games on Saturdays where the journey time is more than 70 minutes or so driving. That would mean coaches to:-
Eccleshill (Bradford) – 18th August
Knaresborough – 6th October
Hall Road – 20th October
Yorkshire Ams (Leeds) - 8th December
Harrogate Rail – 15th December
Bridlington - 22nd December
Barton Town – 5th January
Albion Sports – 13th April.
The above list would be subject to change to take account of fixture changes, postponements and possible additions to include away cup games that might come our way.
There would need to be a minimum of 25 paying passengersto make coach hire viable with a fare of £15 per seat (assuming under 12s travel free). However, it may be possible to book a mini-bus for smaller numbers if we can find volunteer drivers (who would benefit by earning a free journey) so please let member of the Trust committee know if you would be willing to drive a mini-bus.
We understand that the club is making separate arrangements for team travel and that is part of the reason for the increase in cost but there are a couple of advantages.
Firstly, we do not have to await team decisions about their travel arrangements so can be more definite it our planning. Second, we can leave later for the outward, and earlier on the return, journeys through not having to accommodate team preparations or post-match meals.
If you would like to book seats, please send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org or speak to Dave Shephard or another member of the Trust committee.
