We will be running three coaches to Wembley for the play off final. Coach seats will ONLY be allocated to those who hold tickets for the game and payment for coach travel MUST BE PAID IN ADVANCE. You will be able to pay by calling in to Grantham Railway Club between the hours of 7pm and 9pm on Tuesday and Wednesday the 24th and 25th May. Payment will be by CASH ONLY. Once you have paid you will be allocated a receipt and a Bus number. You MUST bring your bus number with you on the day. All coaches will depart from Grantham Bus Station at 9:30 am on the day. We will NOT wait for those not there at the departure time.
You are reminded that NO ALCOHOL WILL BE ALLOWED TO BE CARRIED ON THE COACH.
This is a legal requirement for football coaches and could result in a fine of £1000 to yourself and the coach company. If we find anyone on the journey who has brought some on, then they will be ejected from the bus, wherever we are at the time, and will have to find there own way there. There will be no refund of the fare.
If the police stop the coach and find alcohol, the coach could be turned back, and that my friends would not make you very popular with your fellow travelers, particularly on a day such as this!!!
The coach for HULL CITY will depart from Grantham Bus Station at 9am on Saturday. Please remember NO ALCOHOL IS ALLOWED ON FOOTBALL COACHES, and if stopped by the police and alcohol is discovered, a £1000 fine will be imposed and the coach will be turned back.
Following the game, we will return to Grantham Railway Club for an end of season buffet and social. Everyone is welcome whether you are members or not. Raffle prizes will be welcomed but please note, if you donate alcohol as a prize PLEASSE DO NOT BRING IT ON THE HULL CITY COACH, instead please take it to Mark at MARRON TILES or give it to any committee member prior to Saturday. Families, friends and other associates will also be welcome at the social event but we would ask for a small donation for the buffet from non members.
Details of coach travel and times for the play off semi final AWAY leg will appear on here when we know who we face and whether we finish 3rd or 4th.
