Here’s our welcome return to Scotland – on Brexit Day of all days! – and this year what a line-up we have for you! With the expansion of the East of Scotland League to include many new teams from the Juniors, this Hop is looking fantastic not only for 2019 but for several years to come! As usual we have a coach running from London, our favourite hotel and a huge weekend north of the border. No “Beast from the East” this year though, please!

The fixtures we have planned will feature six matches from the East of Scotland League, and we begin on Friday evening with a visit to Dunipace as they start the proceedings at 8pm. On Saturday we visit Camelon Juniors at 11am, before crossing into Fife to visit the new club in the League that has just gained Senior status, Inverkeithing Hillfield Swifts (2.15pm). We then journey back across the Forth for two games West of Edinburgh starting with Blackburn United (5.15pm) before we round off the day at the fabulous home of Linlithgow Rose for an 8pm kick off. A stunning day! Sunday sees a very welcome early rescheduling of a trip to the Borders as we drop in to Peebles Rovers for a 12.30 kick off before we head back South.

We have reverted to a four-game Saturday, with the Friday and Sunday matches on the way up and way back. Back to our favoured format, and hopefully two more games than last year! As always we add the proviso that games are subject to amendment or cancellation.

Transport

As with all the previous Hops, there will be coach transport with several easy pick up points. The coach leaves London Hillingdon Station and then heads up the M40. There is a pick up point at Beaconsfield Services before heading up to Birmingham International Station. From here, we journey around the M42 and M6 to Norton Canes and on to Holmes Chapel Station, with further pick ups at Knutsford and Forton Services. We are open to suggestions of anywhere convenient on the way. This is a great way of doing this Hop – transport in comfort and style, and going exactly where we need to go, and all the way back. It’s also being offered at a very reasonable price! We hope people will support this venture, and remember that includes all three days, and transport to and from London. Please note that transport is always subject to factors outside our control (such as traffic, late finishes etc.) and although we believe there should be no problems, nothing is ever 100% guaranteed and bookings are made with this in mind. Bookings will not be accepted for coach transport without a Hop ticket.

Accommodation

Cost and value for money is a big factor, and although people liked the Edinburgh hotel, they understand that a better deal can be had elsewhere. We also have to be closer than Edinburgh for our Friday stop due to travel hours so once again it’s the very popular hotel in East Kilbride! We’ve got another good deal there and that’s helped to cut the cost of the weekend. Accommodation is inclusive of (very, very good) full Scottish breakfast on both days.

Programmes and badges

As usual, all clubs will be made aware of the number of programmes that will be needed on the day. The number will be based on the bookings we receive, so reserve your copies by booking tickets! Packs will be made up in advance for the weekend, and remember that programmes are included in the price of the ticket. Badges can also be ordered in advance, a set of six badges can be collected with your advance programme pack. We do like to make your lives as simple as possible!

 

Trading

 

Several traders will be at the hop, and we already know Terry’s Badges will be there! I hope to see all the unofficial trading of a Hop that is both welcomed and encouraged! Just one proviso – you must have an advance ticket for the Hop to trade.

Match Tickets

Tickets are available in advance, and these of course guarantee you a programme at each game. You can also buy tickets for individual games, so please support the Hop by buying in advance! It helps the clubs greatly with planning for advance numbers.
