That we have such a committed and well run Supporters Club.

I went on the Grays website, and was shocked to see that they are charging £35 to got to Hereford!!! On top of this, if their are insufficient numbers the coach may be cancelled!

What a shambles, next time people moan about paying £15 to go to Gravesend remember that you'll pay more or less the same to go anywhere in the country with CIFC Supporters Coach.

Agree, the amount we pay to travel over the country to see our team play is the best around. We are very lucky. I rememeber away at Kidderminster they had to pay £25 to travel to tamworth which is only down the road.

<img src="/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> Great Stuff. Coach companies obviously charge them more coz there frightened of the damage that there supporters are capable of. Just look at the area in which they live lol.

Just over 800 there for the Burton game and they take the p*ss out of our crowds?

All the fair weather fans that were along for the ride when they were winning gradually starting to disappear it seems. Easy to support a winning team, it is when things start going wrong that is the acid test of true support.

Having said that, if we were top of the league, I don't think we'd get more than 1K a week.

Yes Dave it's already booked. And guess what, it's £15...........so is Scarborough 4/3, Altrincham 11/3, Morecambe 25/3, Tamworth 8/4, Daggers 17/4(Easter Monday), and Halifax 29/4.

There are hundreds of ways of raising funds for the club and we have tried most of them and with sufficient help from the supporters, will continue to do so, however, a supporters run coach should be made available as cheaply as possible for as many as possible, that is why it has remained successful now for 14 years and long may it continue.
If 20 or so regular away supporters wish to travel one week they should have that convinience because next week there maybe 50 or more wish to travel and by sticking to a fixed price it has survived the successful and not so successful times.

Hope so. Barca are playing Real Betis on the Sunday I'm out there so we'll turn up on the mornng of the game and try and get tickets.

Will be missing the Hereford game unfortunately which ironically was the last league game I missed last year.
