Walsall on Saturday- Book NOW!

Walsall_FC_svgHi all,

Well we might just get some football this week. Hopefully a home game with Tranmere Rovers on Tuesday followed by an away trip to Walsall on Saturday- and we’re sure you’d like to be at both!

If you’d like to go to Walsall on Saturday (22nd), please book quickly- as if we need to book a second coach we need to find out very quickly.  Fares for this match are £20 for members and £25 for non members (£15 for under 16s accompanied by a fairly responsible adult). Coaches leave the stadium at 10AM.

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 Tuesday night- fingers crossed. 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!
