The third round of the FA CUP pitted us against Burton Albion, the first time since we won promotion in 2010. A 400-mile round trip that saw no football, we feel for them. As a goodwill gesture a site has been set up to pay for a coach for the replay on Tuesday 14th Jan 2014. If you want to contribute head to the gofundme site. They need £800 and over £250 has already been raised. Add your donation now.
Here’s what the site has to say:
“On 24th April 2010 AFC Bournemouth secured promotion to League 1 with a 2-0 victory over Burton Albion. The way our fans were treated that day from the pubs, to the stewards to their fans was just brilliant and has left great memories in many of our fans minds.
We were due to meet them for the first time since that joyous day in the FA cup but the game was postponed just over an hour before kick off, with most away fans in the Bournemouth area having to face a frustrating day of travelling.
As a sign of good will, David Whitehead came up with the idea of Cherries fans chipping in to help fund a coach for our friends at Burton Albion so they can experience free travel and enjoy the re-arranged fixture which is on Tuesday 14th January.
Thank you to all those who will support.”
