A day return from Belfast to Gatwick on 10th Dec for a 1.00pm kick off is only £42.

What time does it arrive into Gatwick?

It takes 30 minutes to get out of domestic arrivals and onto a thameslink train

40 minutes then to clapham junction
20 minutes to twickenham (if trains meet up)

15 minute to get out of station and to ground

On way back add an extra 30 minutes to get back into statiom

Might be better to go to Heathrow and get bus.

The trains will cost as much as the flight !

Flight arrives in Gatwick at 08.25 so shouldn't be a problem getting to match. Return flight is 21.40. Match should be over about 15.00 - no guarantees but again timings should be fine.

All done on the one oyster transaction. That train will cost about £8 but you might get lucky depending on pink readers and be charged £3.50

Trains will be on strike. Just get a few mates and go on a road trip. You can drink drive in France.
I have my own tv channel, what have you got?

Bishop's Stortford are at home on the Saturday in Nat League 1 - we're right next to Stansted Airport.

My firm sponsor the first team - I met Dan Leo, our new designated player last night, who's a top bloke.

Come and watch. We may even have room for a few on the Saturday night, failing which it's an easy return journey to London.

A couple of other club members are proper NI-er Ulster fans,not Lionels like me Baggy.

..except for all the major track and station refurb projects that are always organised in December (between Christmas and New Year admittedly)
