GLOUCESTER Rugby are now in a position to offer limited seats on coaches travelling to Ashton Gate for the final Guinness Premiership match of the season against Bristol.
Places have now become available due to a number of season ticket holders who have changed their travel plans for the game on Saturday, April 28. Gloucester have already booked out 43 coaches.
Coach travel will be charged at £11 for non season ticket holders and is free of charge for season ticket holders providing they can exchange either voucher 55 in the season ticket booklet or an £8.00 voucher.
The coaches will be departing from British Energy car park in Barnwood at 11am on the morning of the match. A shuttle service will be in operation to ferry supporters from the Kingsholm bus stop (outside Arjo's) to British Energy site because there is no parking available there on the day.
The service will start at 9.45 am and run every 15 minutes with the last shuttle leaving at 10.45am.
There will be a return service commencing at approximately 7pm, and will run for one hour after the first coach returns. The shuttle services will be free of charge to both non season ticket holders and season ticket holders.
Supporters are not required to book this service as buses running will be double deckers.
The coaches will drop supporters in the large car park at Ashton Gate and will also collect from this point after the match and will depart for the return journey at 6pm sharp.
Please be prompt for all departure times to avoid delaying other supporters.
For further coach information or to book please contact the ticket office on 0871 871 8781 option 2 or visit the Kingsholm office.
Tickets for the west county derby can still be purchased either online at www.gloucesterrugby.co.uk or by calling the ticket hotline on 0871 871 8781 option 2.
It's the first Gloucester-Bristol derby at Kingsholm in over eight years this Saturday (kick off 4:30pm) and, previewing the game with the local media this week, Defence Coach Jonny Bell stressed that, with both teams in the bottom half of the table, they both need the points.
Speaking to the local media this week, Gloucester front rower John Afoa knows the challenge ahead this week against Bristol, and calls on the Cherry and Whites to make the most of home advantage as a determined squad look to bounce back from a narrow loss to Saracens.
Tom Savage speaks to GRTV and the local media as Gloucester went down by 24-20 at Saracens on Sunday afternoon. The second row was disappointed with the result, despite a strong showing from the hosts.
Speaking immediately after the game, skipper Willi Heinz thought that Gloucester had executed their game plan reasonably well and competed hard against Saracens. However, it wasn't enough but the squad will have plenty to work on this week ahead of the derby match against Bristol.
Gloucester may be coming off their best win of the season, the 38-16 victory over Wasps last weekend, but Director of Rugby David Humphreys admits that Sunday's trip to Saracens is an even tougher test.
After a series of contract announcements last week, hooker Richard Hibbard is the latest Gloucester Rugby player to commit to a new contract at the club and told GRTV how much he enjoys playing in the Cherry and White of Gloucester.
A try scorer in the 36-18 Aviva Premiership win over Wasps at Kingsholm on Saturday, Charlie Sharples admitted that Gloucester would enjoy the moment but can't get too carried away. The team got what they deserved but the winger wants these performances to be more frequent.
England Head Coach Eddie Jones has made two changes to his side to play Australia in Saturday's final match of the Old Mutual Wealth Series at Twickenham Stadium (kick-off 2.30pm, live on Sky Sports 2). Jonny May lines up on the left wing.
