We have, unfortunately, had to cancel a few of our planned coach trips to away games this season due to a lack of interest – the most recent being our upcoming game at Oxford City on Saturday, 19th December 2015. Whilst the teams inconsistent form does play a part in the popularity of our away trips, the Oxford game was always going to be difficult to fill a coach for bearing in mind how close it is to Christmas. We are very grateful to TSC member Dilesh Patel who is running a minibus to Oxford for the few fans that did express in interest in the trip.
We are hoping to start 2016 with a better record of running coaches for fans to watch The Tudors away from home – this is after all why the Supporters Club was formed and we have available funds to continue subsidising the trips. Aside from providing fans with an opportunity to following their club on the road, it will also provided our team with much appreciated pitch side support during one of the most difficult stages of the season.
On Saturday 2nd January 2016 Hemel are away to Wealdstone. Thanks to a recent fund raising initiative offered to the Supporters Club by Hemel FC Chairman Dave Boggins and facilitated by Hemel FC Secretary Dean Chance, we have raised a sufficient amount of money to run a fans coach to Wealdstone which will be FREE OF CHARGE to members of the Tudors Supporters Club. We are very grateful for Hemel FC for providing us with the fund raising opportunity and we hope that the coach will not only be full, it will kickstart a more regular away following for the second half of this season. The coach for Wealdstone will leave Vauxhall Road at 1.30pm and has 32 seats (no toilet facility), therefore the limited opportunity to travel on this coach will be offered on a first come first served basis to fans who email@example.com to reserve at seat. (If you reserve a seat and at a later date find yourself unable to attend, please notify us ASAP so we can offer the seat to someone else).
On Saturday 16th January 2016 Hemel are away to Basingstoke. Thanks to a generous donation to the club funds by one of our Supporters Club members, for which we are again obviously very grateful, we are able to run a vastly subsidised coach to this game for members of our Supporters Club which will cost £5 for adults and £1 for Under 18’s/Students (£10 for guests). By offering a very cheap trip to Basingstoke hot on the heels of a free trip to Wealdstone, we’re again aiming to fill the coach and generate more consistent interest in travelling with our club to get behind our team away from home. This is a 38 seat coach and will have a toilet facility; it will leave Vauxhall Road at 12.45pm. Again, seats on this coach will be offered on a first come first served basis to fans who email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tudors Supporters Club badges and polo-shirts are available for fans to purchase – see the new merchandise section of the Supporters Club website for details: www.hemelfans.co.uk/merchandise. This merchandise will also be on sale on our coaches to away games.
