Anyone travel from West Scotland?

Post by NeilT » Mon Nov 22, 2021 3:43 pm

Hi,

Just joined the forum at the weekend there. Is there anyone from West Scotland particularly Ayrshire who regularly travels to home games?

Since Fat Cashley has left the building I'm going to most games at home, maybe could go turn about travelling.

Or alternatively, are there any supporters sites for NUFC fans in Scotland who put regular busses on? I noticed x3 buses with Glasgow phone numbers on them on Leazes road Saturday but forgot to take a note of the number <erk>

Cheers.
Neil T...

Seaside Nipper is from Scotland but not sure if they travel to games.

I live in the West Midlands and did look for a supporters group once (pre Covid) and Twitter was the most useful place to look I found <ok>

Mate I travel fairly regularly to home games from WoS
Unfortunately when it comes to car sharing it usually involves Mrs Nipper face as she chaperones
some of the football trips by getting some shopping in whilst myself and my lad get game time.

We usually stay over from Friday till Sunday around a standard Saturday fixture so I’m afraid car share isn’t really an option. I would never do up and down now at this time of year….two and a half hours x 2 in a
day is too much just now , plus too many beer options to pursue to anaesthetise the results 🤣

I don’t have any direct knowledge of supporters buses from Scotland but it’s amazing the number of Scots that’s travel for the games. I’m sure you’ll get hooked up.

Cheers, I get your point...

I've been up here for 29 year now, living in Irvine but I work in Clydebank... Originally a Benwell lad.

We stayed at the Station Hotel for the Chelsea game and at my Mams in Alnwick for the Brentford one, Mrs T did a days shopping while I was at the match.

I bought a Clydebank shirt a couple of months ago for no particular reason other than I liked the design and would rather give money to a small club than buy a PL shirt where the clubs don't need the money <laugh>

Yeah been 15 years now, most of my good friends etc are now round here so don’t imagine going anywhere else any time soon.

When I split up from my ex a couple of years ago I did briefly think about moving back to Devon where my family are, but all my other mates etc from when I was younger living there have long since moved away.
