I did think about it but then thought better of it.

New years day travel = chaos!
Disruptions and changes to train times because everyone is too hungover to care!

And I doubt very much that the 63 bus between Stroud & FG will be running.

Sorry. :(

Wait and see what happens next Saturday Pete.
There won't be any trains on new years day.

There's no through trains again next Saturday from London to stroud coz of the electrification. is anyone from London driving down for the FA Cup game? I'd be happy to contribute to petrol money?

A win for us will be a great birthday present!

We're hoping to arrange a group visit to NL the following weekend 6th January to watch us play Port Vale.

There are more details on our Facebook page: Forest Green Rovers London

Is any one in the London area coming down by car next Saturday?

I'd be happy to pay a fuel share.

For all those from London and surrounding areas travelling to the Cambridge game on Jan 20th, we plan to meet at New Lawn in the Green Man from 1pm onwards. There are currently 4 of us travelling on the 10.15am train from Paddington and hopefully more will join us.


London supporters group meeting:

This has been postponed. It will go ahead but time and place is going to be rearranged.

Watch this space.

:)

Great that you have 4 travelling from London for the Cambridge fixture and a pub meeting arranged for February. We mentioned your formation at tonight's SC Board Meeting and hope you flourish as a FGR branch

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
