Margate Supporters Club Statement Regarding Away Travel

MSC are pleased that they have been able to reintroduce coach travel to away matches for supporters after many seasons without. The response has been heartening which in turn has led to favourable seat prices (see earlier posts).

However the hiring of coaches comes with conditions. At a meeting between the owner of Bayliss Executive Travel and MSC it was spelled out clearly what the implications of alcohol being consumed on a coach would be not least that the service being provided would be jeopardized when in its infancy.

The ‘no alcohol’ rule is not one laid down by the coach company nor MSC but a directive from the police. The departure times to matches are designed to ensure fans are at the opponents’ grounds in good time to enjoy the hospitality on offer.

MSC implore supporters to abide by this rule to ensure it is a fun day out for all concerned. If anyone has any thoughts on this issue please contact MSC secretary Keith Lewis via email (
