    Anyone know any coaches running from any pub and you don't have to be a member leaving about 12 Saturday.

    Gary Stubbs on Twitter @gstubbs1987 has been saying he’s got spaces, tweeted earlier about a final call so you might still have a chance

    If you are going by Bus or car you need to leave Cov no later than 12.30 pm or else you get caught in horrendous traffic -

    Really?

    I have left at 1.30 and got there for 2.15 with enough time for a pint before the game.

    Can be done obviously if you have done - but have had it mentioned to me on several occasions that some fans are going to stop going on some coaches as it takes to long as the drivers are leaving to late after 1.30pm -

    I guess a coach is a bit different to a car if they have to wait around for people.

    Bedworth & Nuneaton SC run 2 coaches. One from the Liberal Club in Bedrock and another from The White Lion in Stockingford.

    There is also a coach that runs from The Crows Nest, Nuneaton.

    Absolutely agree. We started to go on the CCFC bus, picking up from Arena Park and the pick up times do vary. Couldn't find anywhere to park the car so have to walk down and back from where we live, at our age it absolutely kills us. Told us on the bus it is just a free for all on where you sit so it is just a mad dash back on at the end of the game.. Last time we went, only one seat left downstairs, I can't get up stairs so we had to split up. For us in our seventies, it is so much hassle that we haven't been to the last few games (only because of the travel), which as supporters and ST holders for over 50 years, I can't believe has happened.

    Not being picky, we are just old codgers, but if we could find a coach (single decker preferably) that just goes straight to the SA and back again afterwards (not really interested in going for a drink etc) and there is somewhere close to park the car (we live in Ash Green) we could do it that way, instead of the CCFC coach. I know, I know, we don't want much, we would just like to make it as simple as possible for to still be able to go the (home) matches.

    Yes we would definitely like to take you up on that offer, so if you could book 2 seats for us for tomorrow that would be great. How do we do about paying for them?

    The bar is open from 11am. Just come into the brewery and you will find the bar. Just pay behind the bar. If you do want a drink, they do some great ales but also have lager on draught. Ask for me when you arrive too I'll be sitting on the seats at the bar to the left. If you can send me a message with your name that would be great. No obligation to buy a beer if you don't want to

    Rail passengers can use Ricoh Arena car parks A & B when using Coventry Arena Station.

    Rail parking costs £2.50 per day. If you are paying on the day you need to pay on foot at a pay machine and enter the discount code - 6459.

    Hi Gary I really like the idea of using your coaches in future being a disabled supporter would this cause you any problems able to walk ok, maybe need to come down the brewery and talk with you face to face if thats ok..

    We are giving Gary (Dhillons) a try for today's match, and he has been really helpful so far. We are in our seventies and although not officially disabled we can't walk too far and I can't get upstairs on the double decker buses, and racing away from the game to get a seat on the bus in a No-No. Can let you know how we get on.
