Easter Greetings!

Firstly, if you haven’t donated an Easter Egg for Chestnut Tree House Children’s Hospice yet, there’s still time! You’ve got until the club office closes on Maundy Thursday to drop off some chocolate.

Right, back to the football. On Easter Monday we’re off to Nottingham, where we play Notts County. Coach leaves at 10 AM, with fares at £20 members, £25 non members and £20 for accompanied under 16′s. Then the following Saturday, 26th, we head oop north again where we visit Bradford City. Coaches leave at 7.30 AM at a cost of £25 members, £30 non members and £20 for under 16′s.

The only way to guarantee your seat on the coach is to pay in advance. There are two ways to do this. The best is to visit the CTSA Cabin on a home matchday. The next best is to visit the club during office hours and book there. You can also now book online at http://www.ctsa.ticketsource.co.uk/.

If you make a last minute decision that you wish to travel, or you cannot get to the club due to holidays etc, email travel@ctfcsa.co.uk or text 07843124845 and our travel team will, of course, do their best to help- but if you book and then do not turn up we will expect you to pay for the seat you should have occupied. Last season we had to regularly run a standby list, and the last thing we want to do is disappoint those who want to travel when there could have been seats available for them. Early booking also enables us to arrange extra coaches if necessary.

Here’s why we think we’re the best choice for following the Reds away:

1. We’re- so far as our research shows- the cheapest official coach provider in the Football League.

2. We use coaches provided by the UK’s premier coach operator and as such offer unparalleled comfort and reliability, as well as complimentary refreshments and the opportunity to watch CTFC matchday DVD’s which are normally only seen in JG’s Office!

3. All of our officials are volunteers- those who steward the coaches pay the same fare as those travelling on them.

4. As a supporters trust, our finances are open and transparent- you can both see them and influence the way we use them. We hire each coach at a cost which we agreed prior to the season starting and price accordingly. We can’t, for example, run a half empty coach and pay half price! Most importantly, however, we serve only you. Accordingly, we make all of our decisions with you in mind. Pricing, comfort and reliability are uppermost in our minds. Safety is an issue we take particularly seriously. If, for example, we were using an operator who turned out to have an appalling safety record, we’d be looking for another operator. Luckily, however, we’re with Clarkes of London- ONCE AGAIN THE UK COACH OPERATOR OF THE YEAR- so that’s a decision we should never have to make.

Come on you Reds!
