Alvechurch: We need your support

Redditch Editorial 12th Jan, 2016 Updated: 18th Oct, 2016

ALVECHURCH have issued a rallying call to as many supporters as possible to follow them for the biggest game of the season so far next weekend.

The Churchmen head to Hereford on Saturday, January 23 for a top of the table Midland League Premier Division contest.

Hereford, who have won 26 games in a row, are expecting a huge turnout for the game at Edgar Street and Alvechurch want to galvanise their own support in what is expected to be a 4,000-plus partisan crowd.

The Churchmen are arranging coaches to run from Lye Meadow to Hereford to help supporters get to the game. Coaches will be leaving Lye Meadow at 12.30pm.

Coach travel costs £10 for adults and £5 for youth members. Match admission is £8 for adults and £5 for youth members.

This Saturday, Alvechurch entertain Stourport Swifts at Lye Meadow, weather permitting.

With Hereford in FA Vase action, Ian Long’s men will be determined to take advantage and close the gap on the leaders.
