In fact..The Village Inn at Nailsworth is opening at 10.30am for visiting fans.
For those travelling to FGR:
Anyone fancying breakfast the Egypt Mill is serving that until 10.00am.
I have been talking to the landlord of the The Village Inn and the pub has managed to get staff in to open at 10.30am. See you there for a pint. On arrival ask for "Old Tina" and thank her personally for going the extra mile for our benefit. The least we can do is to make her till ring. As she is opening the pub early for us and forcing staff to work early, she hopes that we will be able to pop spare change into their current charities (pots available on bar) for the Air Ambulance and Longfield Hospice (local to Nailsworth). Lets leave good memories of what a great bunch we are (goes without saying really) and wear our shirts with pride.
Alternatively, for food, there is a great Chippy next door to the pub, this opens at 11.30am and Tina will let you eat your takeaway in the pub, you will have to get it down your neck quickly, I will accept no blame for indigestion.
The match? Oh yeah, there is the 63 bus service from Nailsworth Bus Station leaving at 11.56 that 'might' get you to the ground for kick-off to avoid having to waddle up "that" hill full of breakfast, cider and chips. So the matchday hospitality at FGR is far from the best, but I won't be whining about it, now the early kick off time, well don't get me started!
