Coaches to away games
« on: January 10, 2023, 08:51:35 PM »
As a new supporter having recently moved to Lynn I am interested in going to away games. I went on the club organised coach to Boston over the festive season which was full. I presume that coaches are not regularly organised due to lack of interest. For example I would love to go to the Brackley game next Tuesday. What is the situation regarding this topic?

Coaches laid on by the club in the past, have always been very difficult to fill.
I don't know if it's down to cost,or something else, but has been tried a few times with very little uptake.  The Boston trip could probably have filled a second one, but the club was reluctant to put another on.
They've tried in the past and people said they would use it, and then didn't.  The club won't book coaches that probably won't be full,as they would lose money.

So what about the supporters club in the 2000s+ at least 1 official minibus, normally 2 or a full size coach and on occassions 2 coaches. On top of that you had the Barmy army minibus.
It should not be a money making scheme getting supporters behind the team at away games

2 minibuses, maybe? Wouldn't fill a coach though.
And I didn't suggest the club should make money from it,but they're not going to book coaches if they can't fill them. Surely you can see that would make no sense?

Now that our fans have started to return in good numbers, why not arrange supporter coaches independently from the club itself. We will be needed in the remaining games to push us over the line, on our push for promotion.
A small profit could be made to cover any costs, and a liaison with SC to advertise should not be that difficult. After all, it is within the clubs interests. :bus: :scarf:
