Hey Shrimpers!


Disappointing recent results does not mean the club stands still with regards to progressive plans. In vew of this, there is a need for early research relating to matchday travel.

Please can you participate in the first following poll:

Travel in from Billericay, occasionally use the train but pick up my mum and two friends in Hockey by car and have a Blue Badge space at the club
 
I travel in from the Wickford area by car and park in the main football car park
 
Saturdays is a mixture of getting dropped off and picked up, or sometimes going by train, having lunch in town and walking to the ground.

Midweek games on the other hand, I have to park in local streets so I can get away quickly to get to my night shift on time.
 
Blue badge space has been added so votes can be changed to gauge accuracy.
 
I travel from Colchester and park in the Club Car Park and have been doing so for 25 years or more. However that may change as the Club has decided to enforce where i park in the Car Park, which way I can face , to increase the time it takes to leave). I used to park by the furthest gate in the Car Park (nearest to the Club Shop) this allowed me to be on Victoria Avenue within 15 minutes of the game being over and I am usually home by 6.30pm. Now!!! it takes me over 30 minutes to get out of the Car Park (last 3 games) and yet is I arrive at 5 minutes to kick off I would be allowed to park against the wall and dont see any stewards around! Thinking of cancelling everything!!! I will not be bullied by a Steward who hasnt a clue of parking cars in the right way too.
 
Coming from St Ives, Cornwall: it's a progression of trains, Tube and train.
That said, I flew to the vital Sunderland lifesaver in 2019!
Sadly, the service from Newquay to S'end Airport is no longer.

Do Ryanair still do Newquay to Stanstead?.... Then it would be just £2 on the bus that goes past the ground.

I do know the frequency @Colchester John - and sadly not a single Saturday from now until the end of the season.
However, it will make me look again because they do fly on Tuesdays, albeit early morning.
That leaves me all day to get the bus! Thanks both.

Totally agree
