Charlton Away - £5 A Ticket

Recommended Posts

Charlton have announced our game with them will be one of their £5 a ticket deals.

Probably won't be quite the same demand as the League One season but still an absolute bargain in this day and age.  Always a good day out too.

Great effort from them it means a good day out regardless of the frustrating square pegs in round holes crap that keeps getting served up.

Just hoping this trip to the Valley will see TM selecting our best eleven!

I have a feeling that weekend there will be chaos on the railways .....

Work at Kings Cross and on the East Lancs line...

Confirmed that Charlton have given us the full end of 3100 tickets. Wouldn't surprise me if we return a few and they sell to Charlton fans.

Saturday 3pm game, no strings, no bundles, no memberships, no surcharges, just 5 quid for all anywhere in the ground.

That's how you do a ticket offer.

Fair play to Charlton. Very good uncomplicated deal. Something that would be totally lost on our hierarchy.

Unfortunately with the weekly crap Tonebola is serving up I suspect we’ll get nowhere near selling out that allocation.

We always have decent followings in London due to our sizeable contingent of south east based fans. Just depends on how many trek down from up here to boost it.

Even at £5 not too many, I’d wager, with little to play for and trains shooting up in price...

No think he’s about right. Trains aren’t cheap this close to the game.

It was 45 quid return on Friday from preston

That's going Preston via crewe then to Euston

You can still get tickets from Preston for £66 return on 17th Feb or £44 with a railcard.

I would normally be going to this with my son and daughter-in-law living close but I'll be in New Zealand (and missing 5 home games as well).

Give or take 100 and I'll bet you a quid 😉

My mate uses an app think it’s called train pal its quite good for cheap tickets. If going from Preston to London it’ll automatically work out the cheapest route. Sometimes it’s just normal price and other times it’ll suggest a stop. But, for eg, if it's cheaper to book from Preston to Milton Keynes as one ticket then Milton Keynes to London as another without getting off the train end up with a cheaper ticket on the direct train.

Be very careful with that example. For split ticketing like that to work you must be on a train that stops at the station where you are splitting your ticket. In that example the fast trains don't stop at Milton Keynes so it won't work. You can do it on the trains that go via Birmingham which also stop at Milton Keynes, but they take an hour longer. It might work taking the via Birmingham train and changing at Crewe as long as the second train stops at Milton Keynes.
