Sunderland's home third round Carling Cup tie v West Ham has been arranged for Tuesday September 21st (7.45) and - providing enough people want to go - there will be a branch coach, departing Stockport at 3.15 and Prestwich at 3.45.
Tickets for the match go on sale tomorrow (September 2nd) and are priced at just £10 for adults and £5 for under 16s and over 65s. However if you are a ST holder, you just need to pay the money and your ST card will be upgraded to allow you admission. ST holders have until Sept 13th to reserve their own seat.
However, we need at least 20 on the coach to make it remotely viable so if you definitely want to go email manchesterbranch@hotmail. co.uk
without delay and, if it all stacks up, a message will be posted on here to confirm that a bus will be running.
If enough people sign up quickly, there should be plenty of time to buy tickets at the reduced rate, even if you need them posting out from SAFC. To book match tickets go to www.safc.com/tickets
or call 0871 911 1973, but remember that the bus isn't guaranteed until you see it posted here.
