NEWS | Pie and a pint for Town faithful at Carlisle

Club to reward fans making long trip

25 October 2018


Yeovil supporters making the longest trip in the EFL this weekend to Carlisle United will be rewarded with a pie and a pint at Brunton Park.

A gesture first introduced during the 2016/17 season the club will once again thank the travelling faithful with refreshments in Cumbria.

With Town fans facing a 660-mile round trip on Saturday, Carlisle have permitted for 50 pie and a pint* vouchers to be purchased in advance by YTFC. 

Each supporter on the Green and White Supporters Club coach - the official travel method for Yeovil fans - will be given a voucher with those remaining put behind the Away Bar from 1.30pm to be given out on a first come, first served basis.

Now something of a tradition after being started by manager Darren Way and his players in 2016, the Town boss commented: "It's a small gesture from the whole club to show that we really do appreciate supporters travelling virtually the length of the country to follow us.

"For fans to give up such a large part of their weekend at the end of a working week is unbelievable. 

"We know the biggest reward would be a win which we'll be striving for, but hopefully this gesture will go some way to showing our thanks."
