WORCESTERSHIRE’S cricket fans will be able to take advantage of subsidised travel for some away matches this summer.

Managing director Jon Graham confirmed the County will be operating a coach from New Road for at least one day of their opening Specsavers County Championship Division Two match at Glamorgan which gets under way on Friday, April 14.

Details and the price will be announced shortly but the package will include admission to the stadium as part of an agreement with Glamorgan which will be reciprocal for the Championship game between the two counties at New Road from June 9 to 12.

It is part of Worcestershire's initiative to give members greater value for money this summer.

Graham said: "Our membership has always been very strong and the loyalty of our membership is staggering really and something we don't take for granted.

"That is why we are going to be investing in the membership this year rather than just taking the money, sending out the cards and seeing everyone in the summer.

"We are working very hard on the away day initiative.

"There will definitely be a trip to Glamorgan for members for at least one day of the first game of the season - and we are going to do more of the same.

"It is another incentive to buy a membership and we will be running coaches from New Road on selected games.”

Graham continued: "Because of our later start for cricket at New Road this summer (April 21), we wanted to try and get a deal done for the first County Championship game.

"It is a package arranged between ourselves and Glamorgan and will be reciprocal for the match at New Road.”
