Welcome to the Crawley Town Supporters Travel Group – to be known as GHCoaches
As you can see we now have an official name, we have associate membership of the FSF with our own coach insurance, a bank account and our own travel web site, Facebook and Twitter pages. It’s been a very emotional few weeks since we decided to run coaches to the away games – We would thank everyone who has helped getting everything set up for our first trip to Cheltenham on Saturday 27th August 2011. We are disappointed at the comments being made by others and contrary to what they are indicating, Kevin and I are not taking or will not take any money out, everyone who travels on our coach will pay the appropriate fare – we can confirm that any profits made will be solely used to help subsidise our future coaches and at the end of the season any surplus will be carried over. If, in the future our venture folds, then any profit made we will donated to the Chestnut Tree Charity. Bill Doidge & Tara Greenway will be overseeing the accounts and acting as signatories on the cheques, which we would thank them for their involvement. We would also than those supporters who have made donations to the setting up of the Travel Group.
CRAWLEY LUXURY COACHES – Our Coach provider
We would like to thank Dave, Gavin and Darren Brown for their help and assistance in setting this venture up, without that we wouldn’t be in the situation today where we can offer our supporters an alternative travel to away games.
Over the past 20 years our partnership as the Crawley Town Supporters Club has been able to offer supporters a cheap way of getting to games, and we intend to keep this going this season and beyond under our new identity. We know that we are working with a terrific coach company who have great respect in the industry – and whose contingency plans when we went to Manchester for the FA Cup match were very impressive – the work that went on behind the scenes for the big day were immense. David, Kevin and I learnt a lot from the experience, something we all will hopefully use again.
THE HALF MOON - updated January 14 – our Base is now once again at the Half moon - Multi TV screens , SKY & BT sports shown, Pool Tables, Pre-match Food and Drinks - 400 yards - 3 minute walk from the Broadfield Stadium on the Old Brighton Road towards Crawley town centre. Away coach parking available if required. It is an "Away fan's" pub, so why not come in for a pre-match drink with us. If you want food then they have a matchday menu available - also the usual "real ales, ciders and lagers" are on tap.
We have now returned to the Half Moon as our base from January 2014 after a few months away, we will b selling tickets and the "Time of the last Crawley goal" will return – we will be sitting at the Half Moon on Saturday home match days – from 12.15pm until 2.15pm, and possible for a short time after the game. If you come into the pub we are situated immediately to your right, by the door. On the evening home games we will be at there from 6.00pm until 7.15pm. We would like to thank Nick, Binny and Chris for use of their facilities. If you can’t get to the Half Moon, then please ring Alain (07771-792346 or E mail Alain.email@example.com).
On our away matches (departing after 8.30am) the Half Moon will be opening ¾ hr before we depart. They will be serving Tea, Coffee, and Bacon/Sausage Rolls, and if anyone wants a cooked breakfast this will also be provided. For the breakfast you must pre-order when you book your seat on the coach. There is some car parking available at the Half Moon and in the local area. Also when we return, the Half Moon will be open, so if you want a drink before going home you will be welcome.
On the return journey, we will still do our drop off’s via Northgate and the Town Centre.
Now its up to you, the supporters now have a choice - you can either use us, or the CTSA for your method of getting to away games.
