Young and elderly supporters of a town football club are being offered free transport to all home games following a successful trial of a supporters bus.

Earlier this season, AFC Sudbury Supporters Club launched a subsidised bus service running to the club from stops around Sudbury, Great Cornard and Long Melford to take supporters to and from all home games.

Due to the success of initiative the club has decided to run the service again next season. Local opticians Wardale Williams has also agreed to finance the running of the bus which is allowing the club to offer free travel to pensioners and those aged under 14.

The sponsorship deal for the bus is part of an ongoing partnership between the club and the opticians, which has seen the Ryman North League club’s home named the Wardale Williams Stadium.

Richard Instance, AFC Sudbury director, said: “The bus service has proved to be very popular and has helped bring more local people to the games so we have taken the decision to run the service into next season. Thanks to the support from Wardale Williams we are now able to offer free transport to pensioners and our younger supporters, which we hope makes the club even more accessible to more local people.”


The bus runs from Sudbury to Cornard via McDonalds and Tesco to Long Melford and back through town to the bus station and to AFC Sudbury’s Wardale Williams Stadium.

The bus will next run on Saturday 7 February for the 3pm kick-off against Harlow Town.

Amanda Skinner, Practice Manager at Wardale Williams, said: “We are happy to sponsor this fantastic initiative, which offers both free and affordable transport to allow more people to share the success of AFC Sudbury. We are delighted to be working with the club once again to benefit the wider community.”
