Fleet aim to turn Sutton red

Ebbsfleet United’s vital Vanarama National League South clash at Sutton United next week will be backed by several hundred travelling Fleet fans as the club offers free coach travel as a thank-you for the away support this season.

And even though the coaches are filling fast, vice chairman Peter Varney wants to pull out all the stops and take as many coaches and supporters to Surrey as possible. He is urging all supporters to book on the coach or make the effort under their own steam if preferred and to don as much red as possible as Fleet bid to take three points from their closest rivals this season.

Varney told FleetOnline, “The Sutton United match next Saturday is probably one of the most important matches this club has played for some years and the support of our fans will be vital. They were brilliant at Hayes & Yeading and at home to Chelmsford City on Saturday and we need them to turn out in large numbers again this Saturday.

“I want us to turn Gander Green Lane into a sea of red and white. We are making coach travel free and I understand that we are already on our sixth coach. With our crowds growing week by week I don’t think it is unrealistic to take 10 coaches and I urge everyone who can to make the journey by coach, rail or car to do so and cheer the team on. Don’t leave it to others… your club needs you to make that all-important difference!”

The Fleet Trust is organising the coach travel and to book a seat for free (or multiple seats for family and friends!), please ring John Burgess on 07951 610878. Ebbsfleet International Car Park will be open from 11.45am for fans to leave their cars at the usual cost of £3.

Furthermore, the club shop will open before coach departure if any supporters wish to purchase any last red EUFC merchandise at discounted prices (see below).

The match is not all ticket and will not be segregated. Drums are not permitted at Sutton so please do not travel to the game with one and fans are politely requested not to kick or bang the panels at the back of the terracing or any advertising hoardings.
