Hi I currently run a pub in Accrington so i'm contacting to offer our pub as a meeting point for your fans. Our pub is situated within walking distance of the train station and if you did wish to have our pub as a meeting point I could arrange a taxi from here to the ground and the fare would only be £2 per taxi. If you would like to take this opportunity then please could you contact me asap so I can accommodate everyone. Many thanks

It might just be due to the Stone Island brigade causing trouble at the last two( at least) matches there...

That's correct. All due to the advent of indoor toilets, apparently!

Never realised how long it takes to get there. Never been (usually a Tuesday night ) 4hrs on train..?
Regret not going to Burton thought next year I will go and they got promoted.
Coventry is a must I think. Might not see them again if it goes tts up
