Cherries: Mitchell offers free cup coach travel

GENEROUS chairman Eddie Mitchell is offering supporters free coach travel to Cherries’ FA Cup second round clash at Carlisle next month.

Mitchell has made the gesture as a “thank you” to fans following the “tremendous backing” given to Eddie Howe’s team at Doncaster on Saturday.

Cherries will make a return trip to Brunton Park on Saturday, December 1 having won 4-2 at the venue at the end of last month in a league game.

Non-season ticket holders shelled out £35 to make the 680-mile round trip to Cumbria 18 days ago, while season tickets holders paid £28. The away attendance was 156.

Subject to demand, Mitchell also said the club may offer a light breakfast to supporters before the coaches depart Goldsands Stadium at the crack of dawn.

Mitchell told the Daily Echo: “I thought the supporters gave the team tremendous backing at Doncaster. Our fans were very vocal and it made a difference. I am sure it helped the players and helped us win.

“As a thank you and to show our appreciation, we would like to offer free coach travel to Carlisle in the FA Cup. We have got three long away trips one after another and I hope it will help.”

Cherries’ trip to Brunton Park is sandwiched between long-haul journeys to Bury on November 24 and Scunthorpe on December 8.

Meanwhile, the club today announced plans to hold a series of discussion groups as part of its commitment to supporter liaison, with the first topic being the matchday experience.

General manager and supporter liaison officer Liz Finney told the club website: “This is a fairly meaty topic to start off with as it encompasses many important touch points such as ticketing, catering and value.

“But we genuinely want to provide the best possible matchday to our existing supporters and give ourselves every opportunity to attract new supporters to the club.

“Our supporters are the best source of information to help us do this effectively.

“The key throughout will be to be informal but focused, realistic on what we can achieve now, but ambitious for what we want from the future.

“We are also planning to hold a discussion group on communication and one on our commercial operation so, if these pique your interest, you might want to hold out to be part of those meetings as the same supporters will not repeat across groups. This is an opportunity to be involved so please join us.”

Great gesture by the club, but the journey to Carlisle is too long for me to be sat on a coach, even if it is for free......

Regardless whether you like Eddie or not, it's still a great gesture for such a long trip. If it was coach travel that was offered for a match a lot closer, it would not be appreciated by the fans so much I guess. They could easily sort something themselves for such a close match. The fact it does not appeal to some is purely their own preference.

brilliant gesture by Eddie and Maxim. Hope a few more than 28 travel on the coach this time. Must admit i couldn't sit on the coach for 7-8 hours. Believe the coach left DC at 06.00 and got to Carlisle well after 2pm and got back near on midnight. Hope those that take up the offer enjoy Eddies hospitality. Well done AFCB

He's not the best thing since sliced bread but he trying to make an effort. Shame some of you can't reciprocate.
No, I'm not married to any of his family, in love with him or work for him. I'm just grateful that I still have a club to follow.

As one of Mitchell,s biggest critics, i have to admit that this is a smashing offer which should be warmly welcomed, not thrown back in his face.It is a very long trip by coach so i fully understand that some of our less abled supporters would struggle to make the trip.Hope the club gets a good take-up on this offer as we will need all the support that we can get, and there may just be a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow if we can win and progress to next round when the big boys enter the fray.GOOD STUFF MITCHELL, if these offers are the only articles that we have to read involving you, then i for one will be very happy, just leave it out with all the other rediculous comments.

Free coach travel to Carlisle is a nice touch, but EM knows not many people will take up the offer because very few people will sit on a coach for 16+ hours to go and watch a football match! Three coaches tops I reckon! Fair play to those who do make the journey though!
Have the club ever thought of looking into chartering a "supporters plane" for some of these long distance away games? I'm sure there would be many fans who would pay reasonable money to fly to away games like Carlisle and Hartlepool for the novelty value if nothing else. I would definitely be interested.

A big thank you to Mr Mitchell and everyone at Dean Court for the free travel and communication initiatives, they are very much appreciated. Its always a pleasure to visit the ground for the matches (especially in recent months), the shop and other excellent facilities. The staff are pleasant and keen to help. AFCB is a class act on and off the pitch.

I would love to take up the offer but the journey by road is just too long for me even though my son is telling me that he is willing to do it.
I have looked into flying up to Newcastle or Glasgow but neither are anywhere near Carlisle. Carlisle has an airport but nothing flys into it.
Now if the club was to charter a plane from Bournemouth to Carlisle airport and road transport to the ground I would be interested.
Why not have the team fly up and sit at the front while all the empty seats at the back could be sold to supporters?
Not sure if Eddie would like us chanting his name all the way up

This is a great gesture again by the club, much appreciated. I will be travelling over to Bournemouth from Plymouth (60 quid both ways) in itself then doing the Bournemouth Carlisle coach trip. It's a hell of a trek but worth it to see the team which is playing in a manner to be proud of nowadays. The coaches are kept in superb condition, air conditioned with well-kept toilet, and flying us all up there would simply cost a bomb, so this is the best thing the club could do and a fantastic thing at that. So well done Mitchell AND demin, and to some of the people above, you really do take every opportunity to have a go at Mitchell based on no evidence...

Ha ha - I agree. Went on coach to Hartlepool and was too much for me. But then we conceded 2 goals in last 5 mins to draw from 2 up. My guess is the journey back would have been more fun if we had held on.
But for this one my son and I will stay in Premier Inn on Saturday night and drive back leisurely on Sunday morning.
But surely everyone can agree that this is a great gesture from the club. We had 6 coaches that day I think - 6 again would be nice!

Fair play to the Chairman. He gets enough stick, mostly deserved, so is surely due credit, when it is due.

There seems to be a (relatively small) band of supporters who will travel to any away game on a coach, so it's great for them and a reward for their loyalty.

Interesting point (above somewhere) about a plane. Mates of mine did fly to watch AFCB at Carlisle once, many years ago, on a plane organised by the club.

Last Sunday, my mate flew from Southampton to Manchester (to watch the Yid Army) for under £70. So cheap airfares are out there.
