The Supporters' Club Away Game Coach Trips
|Stoke City||8.00 am||£40|
|Manchester City **||7.30 am||£40|
|Crystal Palace||11.30 am||£20|
* The Everton coaches will feature our annual fund-raising trip - a raffle on one, an auction on the other. If you have booked or are planning to book, please try to bring a few extra coins with you to boost the coffers of whichever charity recipient we select.
** The Manchester City game has already been moved to the Sunday for TV purposes, but of course it is scheduled to be Quarter Final day for the F A Cup and it is probably safe to assume that Man City at least, and possibly ourselves will feature. Therefore, until we know what is occurring we cannot day when there could be a replay but again, it is most likely to be during April (international break and European games for them to be taken into account).
Firstly, in the unlikely event that we draw our home game against Coventry City in the F A Cup, a coach has been reserved for whichever day the replay would be scheduled. The departure time will be 2.30pm and cost £30 p.p.
I would like to thank everyone who has travelled or is planning to travel with us this season. It has been an adventure and whatever the outcome on 13th May for our future, we can hold our heads up as proud supporters. The excessive actions by some of the P.L. stewards demonstrate that they really do not understand the psyche of the Brighton fans - so long have we waited for the 'privilege' of gracing their huge, impersonal and often very unfriendly stadia that we are not going to ruin our long-held reputation for being the 'best behaved fans in the football league' are we! Over policing / stewarding has often made me feel totally intimidated and wanting to go back to a wet Tuesday night in Stockport!!
Anyway, looking forward to seeing regulars and welcoming new supporters on our coaches that are run by but not exclusively for Supporters' Club members. We've just been doing it a lot longer than all the other away coach operators at the Albion; indeed we are proud that we are still carrying fans who travelled with us when we were at the Goldstone Ground so we can't be doing a bad job, can we!! In fact, one of the 'other' operators actually learned how to do it, before setting up on their own, from travelling with us for a few years!
Bon voyage, one and all
We depart from Hove Conway Street (Builder Centre) and call at Withdean (outside main
top car-park), Patcham Black Lion, Hickstead Castle Inn and Pease Pottage Services.
To book, call me on (01273) 885658. Leave an answerphone message if necessary.
Please state clearly the match, the number of seats required, the names of all passengers in your group, your preferred pick-up point, and a contact phone number.
You can also book by email on email@example.com
NO alcohol is permitted on the coach and you will be asked as you board if you are carrying 'contraband' - it is against the law and we do not want to take ANY risks that our trip is jeopardised because of the selfishness of one or two who are apparently unaware of the rules.
