The supporters club are running a fans coach to the Featherstone away match. This is a 49 seater coach with a toilet and will depart from Cherry Street at 1pm.

The prices are 12 (10 members) for adults and 7 (5 members) for Children.

You can pay on the day, if you need to cancel please let us know in advance of the day, if a large number of people no-show on the day it will make things awkward for everyone else.

To book please email
sheffieldeaglessupportersclub@gmail.com
or contact the club office on 0114 2610326 and leave your details and they will forward them to us.

Many Thanks
Mark Webster
Supporters Club Secretary & Vice-Chairman

Its the only 1 we've got, not like C@s and Wakey who have half a dozen to choose from (well, drawings anyway laugh.gif )

Post Office Road / Bigfella's stadium is the venue. All welcome, come and have a beer and debate all things rugby in the Blue Lagoon before the game happy.gif

Those prices seem steep. We only paid 13 yesterday to go up to Whitehaven.

We are charging the minimum possible to cover costs, the supporters club are making no profit from this coach.

It will now depart from Pond Street at 1pm prompt due to United holding their open day at Bramall Lane the same day.

Also I suspect you took more people than us and thus can charge that.

Pity with the free entry offer for women you couldn't fill the coach, never mind.
For those who haven't been before here's a run down of a few things

Car Park 3 or street parking is available near the ground.

Prices
Adults 14
OAP 9
Children 3

LADIES FREE!!

SEATING FREE!! either stand

Golden Gamble 1 per ticket, 3 for 2 with half the takings as the prize up to 500, drawn at half time.
Most games this season we have paid between 400 and 500 so it might be worth a go.

Food, cafe bar behind the main stand serving the usual stuff, one at the post office road end near the community stand

Drink, bar behind the main stand adjacent to the cafe bar, Blue Lagoon under the community stand which is run by supporters and has memorabilia on the walls. You are invited to partake in a drink and discuss the game, open before the match and at half time.You are also welcome in the clubhouse before, during and after the match.

Enjoy the game and may the best team win and if it happens to be you lets hope we get the bonus point we need for the party to begin

Cheers

Phil - you can't sell lottery tickets at 1 or 3 for 2. It's illegal. All the chances have to be the same price. You can sell them at 1 or 3 for 2 but not both.

No - I'll just complain to the council if I don't win.

While I'm at it, I'm not convinced that free entry for ladies is legal either. dry.gif

I'm a punter with no official connection with the club so you would have to take it up with them, I'm just giving some info to visiting fans. I don't know the ins and outs but assume that they have checked the legality of what they are doing.

I suppose you could add a couple of hundred MP'S onto the list too wink.gif
It's no secret that is what the offer is so anyone who wants to check the legality is free to do so by contacting the club or checking with other sources though it might be an idea to find out what the golden gamble is classed as, there are no doubt different types of prize draws which will have different rules but as i said i personally have no idea what the ins and outs are. I just wish I could win the damn thing.

Schedule 11 of the Gambling Act 2005 is the place to visit.

Penalties include a Big Fine or imprisonment which seems a bit over the top to me. huh.gif
