  3. Anyone know if you can pay on the gate or buy tickets on the day etc?
  4. So second half the Yorkies get louder and louder. Stewards tried telling a few to stop banging the pitch boardings to no avail. To be fair they were actually laughing along with them.Thought it was a great game from both sides and was great that both teams got plenty of applause at the end. Had chat with JF and a couple of the players afterwards then a lift to a bar near Toulouse station. We say Oh!Rayvwah to our new French amis and once again have a brill train journey back to Carcassonne. Saturday night was a bit of a blur but we all got some kip before our walk around the medieval city and walls that reminds us of Winterfell ala Game of Thrones. The rest of Carcassonne goes to sleep on a sunday so we have a marathon sesh in The Celt. Monday bite to eat in the town square and bus to airport about 2.30pm. Back in York about 8.30pm. Overall an excellent trip. Proud of our players, fans and club as a whole. Just want to do it again now.
  5. Set off Friday York to Manchester to Carcassonne. Got to our digs about 6pm had my first pint about 7. Didnt know what to drink so settled for a large Judas. Turns out its 8.3% !! Only had one! Went on the Kilkenny after that. We couldnt be bothered to walk far so we only went in the 2 so called Irish bars...twice. Prefered The Celt to O'Sheridans. Good fish n chips.Bed. Up for brekky in Chez Felix, omelette being the order of the day. Train to Toulouse about 10.30am. Blagged 1st class on double decker train by accident honest. Really put our rail system to shame.Public bus outside station to Blagnac,meeting some French friends of a friend. To said friends house for pre-match food and drinks. Great welcome by these people who then gave us a lift to the stadium passing by The Toucan where gave all our fellow Yorkies a beep. Got to the stadium where we were given free tickets and hospitality bands for champagne and snacks, this was unreal. Watched the first half opposite where most York fans were but went accross to the other side at half time. 2nd part of this trip to follow later.
  6. Bit late in posting this for personal reasons but never mind . Met up in Acorn and watched 2nd half of Hull derby then 12 of us set off in the club minibus to Fev. We had paid for hospitality this time as one of the 12 is a Fev supporter and promised us a good day. Sat in the club bar hoping to watch Wigan v Saints but apparantly they wont show Superleague games so we had to put up with LUFC streamed game. Anyway we had a very good feed before the game and could have watched the match from the dining room but decided we would watch it in the sunshine sat below the Fev fans. Got to give it to the home fans, they are noisy and constant though a lot of their songs contain a lot of effin and jeffin and going nurnurnurnurnur! Anyway swapped ends at arftime , a pleasant throwback. Game over, got beat, best team won by far and we know we are better than that. Thought the staff at the stadium were excellent and i can recomend the hospitality package. Got picked up about 9pm and as always ended up at BT for a few.
  7. Watch out for the 'Gilets Jaunes' protests or should I say watch out for the french coppers coz they dont give a toss who they belt. Toulouse has had protests most saturdays since this started and The Melting Pot is near to where the yellow vests gather.They wont be putting the Bootham Tavern crew off anyway. Looking forward to this weekend after a very sad month just gone. Allez York Allez.
  8. We usually go to the Featherstone WMC.
  9. Cheapest parking is Sainsburys Fossbank. £4 for 4 hours.
  10. Headaches just worn off. Return bus ticket to York station £4.40. Onto 13.17 direct train to Bradford £19 return. Stopped at every little station eventually arriving at 14.29. £7 taxi to Odsal.£25 into ground. Never had a pint before or during the game. Good banter .Every York pass was forward! Our defence was great especially when we picked up a Bulls forward and took him over our dead ball line giving us the restart. Ash Robson was involved in everything until he had to come off.Harry Carter was non stop.Every York pass was forward. The lead cheerleader had a bad looking accident I hope shes ok. At least 50 York fans there. Went into Q Gardens bar afterwards and caught up with an old mate who gave me lift back to York dropped me off at Bootham Tavern 19.30. Enjoyed rest of the night with some tightwad mates who never went but listened to the game hunched over the wireless. Another good day out. Worth every penny. Every York pass was forward!!
  11. Will be staying in Carcassonne at the end of April while also visiting Toulouse to support York v TOXIII. We need to know of any decent bars/clubs we could visit, or indeed anything RL related. See voo play!
  12. Anyone going by train on Sunday?
  13. Had a good day at Heavy Woollen. Started out Sunday a.m. direct train to Dewsbury. Couple of John Smiths in Wetherspoons £1.89 a pint. Good banter with some sheeplovers who kindly ordered us taxis to Hanging Heaton WMC where they were heading. More beer and banter then 400m walk to the stadium. £16 entry. More beer which was far too cold to enjoy but needs must. First half we were awful and didnt look like scoring but when Horney was introduced we were a different side. Great win and just had to laugh at a couple of Ramsupporters playing hell about the Ref but have to say we had a good laugh with most we met. Back to the WMC then taxi for 6oclock train back to York. In the Tavern for 7. Great day out. Hope to give an awayday report as much as poss this season.
  14. At least 20 Yorkies now doing Manchester - Carcassone
  15. Carcassone flights now £54 return.
