Throughout the 2022/23 season, as the Crawley Town Supporters Alliance, we will be providing you, the fans, a number of ways that you can get to the away games.
The boys in red will be making the trip up to Doncaster on the 24th September. The Eco-power Stadium, formerly the Keepmoat Stadium, hasn’t been visited by CTFC since August 2016. This match finished 1-1 in front of a 4,327 crowd. James Collins scoring for the reds. Will we be able to one up this result and bring back the whole 3 points?
GH Coches, the official CTFC travel providers, will be running a day coach to the match for only £30. For this match, they will be leaving the Broadfield Stadium at 7:30am to get to the ground. On route, they will be stopping for a buffet lunch at the Red Hart in Blyth along with a stop at the A1M Peterborough services. Without a doubt the cheapest way to get to the match.

Before you even look into getting a train, the first place to go to get the cheapest tickets possible is to look into getting a Railcard. Now these aren’t available for everyone but it may be worth looking to see if you qualify for any of them. There is a cost to this Railcard but it will give you one third off all train travel! You can look here to see what railcards are available: www.railcard.co.uk/about-railcards
If you are travelling from Crawley, we would suggest that you get a train from Three Bridges. From Three Bridges, a short trip to London Kings Cross, via St Pancras, before then heading on a direct train to Doncaster. In total, this journey will take a fairly easy 3 hours.
Cost wise. The easiest place to get your train ticket from will be www.thetrainline.com. At the time of writing it will cost around £78 return (£50 with a travel card). The other place you can go to is book.splitticketing.com. This is a great and cheaper way to get your tickets. All it does is split your ticket up into smaller journeys which makes your journey cheaper. 9 times out of 10 you can stay on the same train. Looking at the split ticketing website at the time of writing it will cost around £72 return (£45 with a travel card).
The 209 mile journey will take you around 4 hour, if you were to leave from the Football Stadium. This journey will take you round the M25 (again!), followed by a journey up the M1 passing to the right of Coventry and left of Nottingham. From here you will then be joining on the M18 just before reaching Doncaster.
COME ON YOU REDDSSSSSSSS!!
