AFC Bournemouth fans to Fund Burton Albion fan’s Coach

The 3rd round FA Cup tie on Saturday between AFC Bournemouth and Burton Albion was postponed just an hour before kick-off. That meant that the Burton Albion fans had already made the long trip south and were in burton_fanstown. The re-arranged tie will now take place on the evening of Tuesday 14th January. Cherries fans have therefore decided to fund a coach for the fans to enable Burton Albion fans to attend the game. Why? …

Well, back in April 2010 Bournemouth travelled to Burton knowing that a win would secure them promotion to League 1. The Bournemouth fans were impressed by the friendly welcome from the Brewers, fans and stewards burton_fans_thumband the pubs inĀ  town. Bournemouth got their win (2-0) and were able to celebrate their promotion in proper style.

The fund has already raised more than enough for one coach, with generous Bournemouth fans willingly dipping into their pockets.
