Norwich Airport

Recommended Posts

The club coach would have taken all of the kit, the players boots, shower gels, toothpaste, training bibs, first aid bucket and magic sponge, and the half-time oranges.

Maybe even dropped off a cardboard box of tat from Mr Moxley''s office to the black country on the way over.

was the team coach which was parked at the ground just to take them 8 miles to the Cardiff airport ?

Yes happens at majority of games means they get home and straight into resting / recovery and not wasting time travelling, day with families tomorrow and fly to Manchester after training on Monday morning.

I assumed that was the case , sounds like a good idea.

I doubt the players would let the boots travel separately, bus breakdown etc. they can play in any old kit ,but not any old boots, Correct procedure is essential skeleton equipment travels with team, peripherals travel cheapest way.

Can''t forget that away game where the shin pads went missing so they had to go to JJB Sports before the game and buy a load. Wes celebrate his goal by running around with his shin pads aloft!

is a case of sherry deemed an essential ?

otherwise I would assume that ''others'' would have travelled down on the coach given that these planes are usually only 20 seaters

With a band name like that Tilly I had to Google them. Get the feeling that they might have split up due to musical differences, the gig guide on their website is for 2014, perhaps LDC can give us some local input, please tell us that Cliff Rescue and the Helicopters have not split up!!......

Thanks for the explanation Mr. Tilson. When I first saw the picture I feared The Butler was back.
