October 2014 Newsletter

News:

  • The Tudors only have one home game scheduled for October, against Ebbsfleet on Saturday 18th October. If we win our FA Cup tie at Chippenham on Saturday 11th October then the next round will be on Saturday 25th (which will mean our league game away to Bath will be postponed).
  • Hemel have had a few midweek friendlies arranged at very short notice, keep an eye on the club website for details.
  • DIE DEUTSCHEN KOMMEN! The German members of the Tudors Supporters Club, Marcel, Alex and Stefan, have arranged to come and visit us again. They’ve booked flights for Friday 17th October and are planning to spend the weekend in Hemel in order to catch our home game against Ebbsfleet United on Saturday 18th.
  • We will have a supporters club meeting in November, details will be confirmed in the next Newsletter, in order to us to discuss how the club has been run so far and to reflect on the trips and travel arrangements etc. This will be an opportunity for fans to contribute with ideas as well as help identify improvements with constructive feedback.

Travel:

  • Despite the best efforts of our supporters club secretary, Chris, we were unfortunately unable to book a coach for the Gosport game – either the size or the cost of the only available coaches have been unsuitable.
  • Enquiries are underway to see if there is an available coach to take supporters club members to our FA Cup tie at Chippenham on Saturday 11th October. We’re pushing our luck a bit at short notice but we’ll see what we can do. Please email membership@hemelfans.co.uk to register interest in this trip, so we know what size coach to try to book. We’ll keep you updated about availability. So far 18 people have expressed an interest, which may not make a coach cost effective however we’ve still yet to find an available coach.
  • Our next confirmed coach is to Bath on Saturday 25th October, this coach will not be cancelled. This is a 33 seater and it does not have a toilet, however we will make scheduled stops at services. Tickets have already gone on general sale to existing supporters club members and we’ve less than ten seats left.
  • As previously stated, this trip to Bath clashes with the 4th Qualifying Round of the FA Cup, should be beat Chippenham, so it may be postponed. If we’re drawn away, we’ll retain the coach for the trip.
  • We have identified two away trips in November that we’ll attempt to run coaches to, Bishops Stortford and Sutton, enquiries are already underway to secure coach bookings.
  • Please note, if you intend to travel on a supporters club coach, you MUST either purchase a ticket in advance OR email membership@hemelfans.co.uk to register your interest and not just expect to be able to turn up on the day of the trip. For Eastbourne, numerous people got in touch expecting to travel after the coach had been cancelled, some even turned up at Vauxhall Road on the day, we may have been able to run the coach after all if enough interest was expressed during earlier stages of organising it.
