Bridgwater At Hereford On Saturday

Bridgwater are the visitors to Hereford on Saturday and appear to be looking forward to the game.

This from Bridgwater FC:

As most of you know, we are poised to play one of our biggest away fixtures of the season on Saturday - at newly promoted Hereford. They have historically been one of the best-supported teams in the lower leagues and to have an outfit of their pedigree competing in our division (they were still in League 2 until 2012) should be considered something of a mouthwatering bonus!

Therefore, as it's such a big game for us, plus the fact that many of you have expressed an interest in going to the match, the club has laid on a 53-seater coach. This means that you can travel there in comfort, enjoy a few beers (or wines) in the sunshine which has been forecast for Saturday, and then, after a resounding win for the Robins, travel back home in comfort along with our victorious team!

As I'm sure you'll have probably guessed by now, we will have to charge those of you travelling on the coach, and although, unlike previous seasons where the generosity of our benefactors meant that transport costs were subsidised, we aren't yet in the same position this season to be able to do so. 

However, as we realise that you are coming to support the lads and paying for that much-appreciated gesture with your own hard-earned pennies, we do not intend to make money from the coach hire and have therefore been able to keep the cost of the transport down to a very reasonable £20.00 per head.

As you'll be travelling with Craig and the team, at the moment the intention is to leave the clubhouse at 10:00am, with a half hour comfort break en-route and an estimated arrival time in Hereford of 1.15pm. We will, of course, confirm the final details as soon as possible.

This will undoubtedly be a great day out, especially at this early stage in the season when we can still enjoy watching the match on a warm, sunny summer afternoon, with a pint (or glass of wine!) in our hands and enjoying the company of our friends. Jamie has reported that the Hereford fans are a really nice bunch too and apparently they may even make Andrew Freeman crack a smile with their good-natured banter!
