Charter flights for Reds' away games07/07/2018
After successful trips for away games in recent season, the Reds are once again looking at charter flights for the players, coaches and supporters to travel to away matches in 2018/19.
The intention is to repeat the popular 36-hour tour to Cornwall for the game against Cornish Pirates in March, and we are also looking at an early season trip to cheer on the boys in their first league game, away to newly-promoted Coventry.
It will be our first trip to Butts Park Arena in 'Cov' since April 2012 when we clinched promotion to the Championship. It's a well-appointed ground with one of the best stands in the division, and the game should be a great test for two new squads looking to make an early mark in the league.
Due to the range of locations and prices across the many options for accommodation, we don't intend to offer a full package including a designated hotel. Those coming on the trip will need to arrange their own hotel. There will be coach transport arranged after the games for the journey from the ground to Airport, and depending on numbers and demand, we'll also look at arranging transport from the airport to selected destinations on arrival. There'll be a modest charge to cover these transfers.
Full details of the proposed trips are as follows:
