Help at Bury on Saturday
It seems certain that I will not be able to get to Bury on Saturday (cannot afford the train fare, don’t drive, can’t get to a coach if there is one).
In this case, and my apologies for the short notice, can someone please write a match report for the website and local papers. If you would rather just take notes and give me the information, I will send reports to the local papers.
If anyone is able to do this – Paul B you did an excellent job earlier this season – please let me know through the messageboard and I will make personal contact thereafter.
Thanks in advance

Would have been up for this but I am in the same boat re train fare, was going to make a day of it on the groupsave deal but couldn't even get four of us together to sort that out, and I'm not paying 40 odd quid for the train, so I'll be giving this one a miss.
National Express coach from Victoria only £18 return. Departs 9am and gets back about 10pm so a long day but a chance to spend some time in Bury before and after the game (don't know whether that's a good thing or not).
Re: Bury Travel
I didn't go to the Bury v Dulwich game on tuesday, but I understand from fellow Hamlet fans that it works out a lot cheaper if you split your tickets by buying seperately for each leg of the journey. It's around £16 return from King's X to Cambridge and about a tenner return from Cambridge to Bury, as opposed to around £38 if you buy one through ticket. Don't know why, but worth knowing, and if you check it out on National Rail Enquiries Journey Planner you'll see for yourself. (And if you have a Network Card or Gold Travelcard you can get one third off the London-Cambridge leg, bringing the total cost down to not much more than £20, plus whatever it costs you to get from Hendon to King's X.)
