Trophy Timetable – Larks v Stockport County at Edgeley Park, 15th Jan 2022

It’s here already and the first coach with players and supporters heads off for Stockport on this afternoon at 1pm. The departure point is Bath Rugby Training ground at Lambridge. Come and wish the team Bon Voyage and good luck for the Saturday afternoon match.

With a fair wind the party hopes to make Edgeley Park late afternoon and enjoy a visit to the ground to acclimatise.

On Saturday morning the balance of supporters will need to set their alarm clocks well before 7 if they are to be on board coach 2 which leaves at 8.00 a.m. The departure point is once again Lambridge. 

The match will kick off at 3.00pm and will be decided on the day. For those not making the trip to Stockport a commentary of the game will be broadcast over the internet by Strawberry Radio  starting at 2.50p.m. Search for strawberryradio.co.uk. We will also be doing live updates before, during and after the game on Radio Bath (DAB and online). Do tune in!

The gate is expected to be around 3,000 and all of the away fans – and some 200 are expected – will be housed on the “popular” side in the “Together Stand”. Listen out for the travelling Larks singing!  

After the game, for those not immediately heading south, supporters and players will meet in the Hardcastle Suite in the Edgeley Park Events Venue on the opposite side of the stadium to enjoy a short celebration of our FA Trophy adventure. Please keep hold of your away ticket to gain entry to the suite.

Coach 2 will leave for the return trip to Bath at 6.00pm.

17 players will be available for selection and the starting line-up will be posted on social media. Owen Humphries is sadly cup-tied but the rest of the squad have shaken off various knocks and will be hoping to be in that starting 11.
