    Chippenham Supporters' Coach - Cancelled

    Unfortunately, due to a lack of demand, the Supporters' Trust have had to cancel the planned coach to Chippenham Town on Saturday 28th September. We have individually contacted the small number of fans who had already booked this service.

    As previously stated, we are unable to run coaches at less than 50% capacity. Whilst we are passionate about helping fans to attend Away matches, we have to balance the financial cost of this with our other responsibilities to our members. Every £ spent subsidising coach travel is a £ we can't invest in the Club or other community projects. Even at 50% capacity, the Trust pays a large subsidy to ensure the running of a coach.

    Please Note: National Express runs a direct service from Victoria Coach Station to Chippenham with adult returns currently on sale at £14. There is a coach at 11.30am (due to arrive in Chippenham at 14.00). For the return journey, there is an 18.35 departure from Chippenham to Victoria".

    If you would like to support the team at Away fixtures, please do consider using the DHST coach in future!

    The next planned coach is on Saturday, 26 October to Chelmsford City. Adults: £16 Conc: £11

    Online booking for the Chelmsford coach will open soon. The last date for booking will be Sunday 20 October. We’ll confirm that the coach is running as soon as half the seats are booked.

    Amazing that we’re averaging 1600 but can’t get 25 people on a coach. In my opinion saying the coach won’t run unless there’s 50% capacity is the wrong approach.

    Many people like myself simply don't like coach/motorway travel, or being tied to the schedule of a coach, and prefer to travel by train even if it costs a bit more. However there's a disincentive to commit to the coach when it might get cancelled at 5 days notice and the cheapest advance train fares have already sold out.
