To be fair, as has been mentioned there are a lot of people who travel by car and it may be a case of trying to encourage those who travel in their car to jump on the coach.
JK did ask to see me regarding the supporters assoc. before Christmas but due to location and me working away the last couple of trust meetings we've not had chance to meet.
I’ve got a couple of quotes which we’ll discuss at the next trust meeting. Members are invited down on the 14th to discuss(those who are allowed out on Valentine's Day!). If we were to go ahead it would make sense to start for league season.
It's not something we want to make a loss on, we did on the Trust bus to Moor Lane and SP but at least those people were putting money through Swinton's turnstiles.
Who on here would be interested in taking the coach, I expect it’ll be arriving for the match and leaving pretty much straight after, it’ll be cheaper that way and we would expect more bums on seats.
For example the cost in a car I estimate for York :-
140 miles - 9 miles to the litre = 15 litres at 1.30 = 20 + 50% running costs = 30 quid

I am not suggesting that we would fill a 52 seater as in the old Fieldsends Coach that used to run from Station Rd but would think some suitably sized vehicle from a local firm could be found to cater for our needs.
Fieldsend's? That got me thinking, here we go again, down Memory Lane.
In my teens, I recall the main coach company was Rigby's (was their HQ in Patricroft?) who ran coaches from both the "Top Road" and the "Bottom Road". Not too many fans had cars in those long gone days, days when the Lions really were kings.
