Shrewsbury away 13/5 k/o 17.15

This trip's cheapest option by train is a £60 off peak return, returning back within one calender month.

The 20.23 changes at Birmingham International, arriving in Euston at 00.25 with the 21.31 changing at Wolverhampton arriving in Euston at 1.03

You can get up to Shrewsbury for about £20 single if you go with Chiltern trains then change in Birmingham but you are getting clobbered between £60-£75 for the single on the way back.

There is no need to book in advance, the £60 will apply by purchasing your ticket on the day.

    Return to Brum is £18 on Virgin, surely it's not £60 return from Brum to Shrewsbury?
  • Might be a stupid question... but how would you get back from London Euston at 00:35am Monday morning?
  • Apologies if it’s been clearly published and discussed elsewhere but how many tickets will charlton be allocated ? Is it a case of charlton will give them 3,300 tickets for the match at the Valley and they give charlton just 500 to 1,000 for the match at their place ?

    Uber for us.

    I'm on the 21:30 in case of extra time. It's a near half hour walk between stadium and station.

    SE9, breaking up the trip with separate tickets can save money. Shrews to London was going to be £59 single but I've got Wolves-London trains for £8 each. I'll buy a local train ticket on the day for the other leg.

    I think the ticket details will be issued this afternoon.

    Their ground only holds just under 10000, so our allocation will be a lot lower than the 3300 they'll get here

    If it’s 1,500 or less then the sensible thing would be to just give them the same and sell the other half of the jimmy seed stand to charlton fans, whether we sell out the whole ground or not
  • The allocation for the away leg is 1,500 and they go on sale on Tuesday 9am.

    London to Shrewsbury was what I posted.

    I did not look up the details unlike Iaitch. Slapped wrist.

    You can do it cheaper by splitting your journey.

    Outward

    11.40 from London Marylebone to Birmingham Moor Street arrives at 13.29 using Chiltern Railways, £9 single fare.

    10 minute walk to Birmingham New Street.

    14.24 from New Street to Shrewsbury arrives at 15.19, £14.60 return.

    Return

    20.23 Shrewsbury to New Street arrives 21.29, return ticket above covers this journey.

    22.30 New Street to Euston arrives 00.25 £8 single on Virgin.

    Total £31.60.

    The 20.23 will be EXTREMELY tight as it is an out of town ground. When I went last season the gaff was not overflowing with taxis.

    If the game goes to ET & then pens, it won't finish until 8pm ish. You won't be able to get the 20.23.

    Against the rules and also pointless. We have to give them 2,000 (minimum).

    The game kicks off at 5.15 so should finish around 7.00, there's a train about 7.30 but I've heard that the ground is quite a way from the station so didn't give that one..

    I mentioned the 20.23 to hopefully cover extra time and penalties. The next train after that is about an hour later so has a knock on effect in getting back to Birmingham and London.

    I'm not going but just looked up the options that may be of benefit some of you, mainly a cheaper option if splitting up the tickets.

  • I think we'll sell out 1500. I wasn't so sure if we'd got nearer 2,000.
  • Yet again they plan for one coach.
  • Free coach travel to midweek games at Preston, we were virtually relegated.

  • Yet again they plan for one coach.

    1500 tickets for an evening game with a difficult journey home. One coach. Bizarre.

    They might stretch to two for the final.
    While it's clearly convenient for "Valley Express" fans, the final at Wembley (3pm kickoff) for most people is easy to get to anyway on normal transport. There's even a direct tube from North Greenwich!
  • I thought the away end at Shrewsbury held almost 1,800?

    "Away fans are housed in the North Stand with 1,796 available seats".

    Larkfield: 9.30am - should be 10.20am

    Gravesend: 9.55am - should be 10.45am

    Dartford: 10.10am - should be 11am

    Bexleyheath: 10.25am - should be 11.15am

    Bromley: 10.55am

    Eltham: 11.15am

    Charlton: 11.30am

    That is literally all they need to do. It is inconceivable there isn’t demand for four or five coaches minimum at, say, £20 and they would make far more money.

    I believe we had about 50 coaches go in '98.

    Where does it say there will only be one coach ?
    It says services, which would suggest there may be more than one coach.
    Presumably, you've been told there is only one, or more likely you are saying that because of the crazy schedule, it's set up as if there would only be one ?

    (I agree with the timings).
