Away Travel 2017/18
« on: July 18, 2017, 07:50:55 AM »



The Dartford FC Supporters’ Association have taken the decision to amend slightly the coach travel for the coming season. As a result of higher coach costs, prices will need to increase slightly on the counterpart journeys from last season. However, the Association have decided to minimise the increase as best possible by charging a slightly lower price for Association members with a £2 discount per journey.


You can join the Association for just as little as £10 per season which will pay for itself with just five coach journeys, along with the other benefits of becoming an Association member. There are also family memberships and five year memberships available. We would  strongly recommend joining the Association, especially if you are a regular away traveller on the coach.


The coach times for this season have been decided and along with the first few prices are, as follows:


08/08/17 – Braintree Town – 16:30 – cost £15 members, £17 non-members
12/08/17 – Havant and Waterlooville – 10:30 – cost £20 members, £22 non-members
26/08/17 – Hemel Hempstead Town – 11:30 – cost £15 members, £17 non-members
02/09/17 – Hampton and Richmond Borough – 11:30
05/09/17 – Whitehawk – 16:00
23/09/17 – Weston-super-Mare – 09:15
14/10/17 – Bath City – 09:30
21/10/17 – Chelmsford City – 12:00
11/11/17 – Truro City – 06:30 – more details to follow on this one
02/12/17 – Poole Town – 09:30
09/12/17 – Hungerford Town – 10:15
26/12/17 – Welling United – NO COACH
06/01/18 – Concord Rangers – 12:00
20/01/18 – Chippenham Town – 09:30
03/02/18 – St Albans City – 11:30
17/02/18 – Wealdstone – 11:30
03/03/18 – Gloucester City – 09:30
24/03/18 – Oxford City – 10:15
02/04/18 – East Thurrock United – 12:00
14/04/18 – Eastbourne Borough – 11:30
28/04/18 – Bognor Regis Town – 10:30


These times are subject to change, as are the fixtures in the case of postponement and/or cup football taking precedence. Changes in times will be publicised where possible at Princes Park, over the Public Address system, on the official club website and in the match day programme. Please arrive 15 minutes before departure, as the coaches will be leaving at the time stated sharp.  We aim to have coach prices for September by mid to late August.
To make your booking, please speak to Mick Austin either in the club bar on match days or by calling/texting on 07969 181796. Alternatively, where possible, you can book online at www.dartfordfc.com

We also have the long trip to Truro upcoming in November. This coach will cost £35 members, £37 non-members and we will require 25 people to make the coach viable. Mick Austin will be collecting names and cash from now onwards. We only ever ask for cash up front under special circumstances, and due to the high cost of running this coach, we will require this on this occasion. If there are not enough names paid for, we will unfortunately have to cancel this coach and not be able to offer a means of travel to this match.

To make your booking, please speak to Mick Austin either in the club bar on match days or by calling/texting on 07969 181796. Alternatively, where possible, you can book online at www.dartfordfc.com
