As a few of you know I don't do the supporters bus at all after what happend back in July 2002 when we waited at Odsal from 5pm till gone just after 6:30pm waiting for the buses to take us to the Hull FC away game.

As a result of this we didn't make the game the game till just gone half time with the score at Hull 10-16 Bradford.

Anyhow enough of that, here are the train times for Friday if anyone else is thinking of going by rail.

OUT

Depart: Bradford Interchange (3) 15:32-16:32-17:32
Arrive: Manchester Victoria (2) 16:32-17:32-18:32
Depart: Manchester Victoria (3) 16:39-17:39-18:39
Arrive: St Helens Junction (2) 17:08-18:08-19:08

RETURN

Depart: St Helens Junction (1) 22:40
Arrive: Manchester Victoria (4) 23:10
Depart: Manchester Victoria (1) 23:20
Arrive: Bradford Interchange (1) 00:34

*platform numbers in brackets

Adult return is 16.90

There used to be a Saints supporters bus that ran from the stations to the ground - always got on with my Bulls stuff on though no bother. That still going Saints fans? Not been for a couple of seasons.

Are you going Friday mate?

I hope to get there early and have a good walk around all four stands, I'm still waiting on the club to email me back with regards to this request.

Not sure on this one, although a bus service for supporters does exist from town.

Probably not actually - although due to work rather than trying to avoid watching us us getting paggered.

Shame - would love to watch us play at KR one last time.

Yes it runs from Lea Green next station from Junction so Mick stay on 1 more stop & catch the supprters bus direct to KR (unless you are coming ridiculously early)

I'll be coming ridiculously early biggrin.gif

I was too young at the time to appreciate my last ever visit to Central Park back in 1999 (Wigan 14-0 Bradford) so I want to spend some good time inside Knowsley Road on Friday evening because we'll be losing a classic Rugby League ground.

get off at the next station (lea green) and the supporters bus goes from there.

I'll be over too early to catch that mate as I'm going for a stadium tour before the game as it'll be last ever visit to Knowsley Road.

Plus the young Bulls kick-off at 5:45pm and after watching them win away at Hull KR last time out, I'll be wanting to watch that before the main game.

Cheers for the info though. .

Why would someone get the train to St Helens then use a skateboard to travel to the ground? He would be better getting a taxi or a bus.

Be cheaper than a cab




A lot of Yorkshiremen believe that when God created the world, he made it with perfect balance.
He balanced the hot areas with the cold areas. the dry areas with the wet areas.
And, in creating Yorkshire, he created the most glorious place on earth - full of majestic beauty and sporting giants.........and for balance he created....... Lancashire.

No, surely it is cheaper to get a cab than buy a skateboard? Even a basic one would be more expensive than a short cab ride surely? terrywebb simply hasn't thought this one through and is giving silly advice to would be attendees....got to be bad for any floating voters thinking of attending the match but would clearly be put off by the thought of travelling on skateboards.

We've had it long enough, surprisingly by posters on this thread, what comes around........
