Coach Travel This Season


Whilst we do not yet know if fans will be allowed to travel to away games in the National League this season, it is hoped that this will be the case & that we can resume offering this service for Alty supporters.

Throughout most of this millennium, away travel was organised superbly by Mark Eckersall, who very sadly passed away in August 2020 & we are looking for at least one supporter to come forward to provide this service for the 2021/22 season.

The role involves the following:-

  • Sourcing a coach supplier & booking coaches for each away game that fans can not get to easily by public transport or car.
  • Liaising with the football club to communicate away travel booking details for each game.
  • Liaising with the coach company & organising the collection of money on the day of travel.
  • Organising the banking of the money collected.

Whilst it is helpful to be travelling on the coach, it is not a requirement of the role. Mark travelled on most coaches but there were many games that he did not travel to, particularly whilst he was ill, however he always took responsibility for ensuring that everything was organised properly.

To enable the new person(s) to get up & running independently, Brian Flynn will facilitate organising coaches for away games in August & September.
