Due to popular demand, after the first boat sold out within 48 hours we have booked a second vessel for our top of the table clash away to Leyton Orient on Saturday 15th March.
The second vessel will join the Golden Salamander to take us down river from Putney, departing at 11:00 and arriving at North Greenwich (by the O2 Arena) around 13:00.
From North Greenwich it is a short tube journey to Leyton (Jubilee Line to Stratford, Central Line to Leyton) and a short (10 minute) walk from there to the ground. This could be a vital match in Brentford’s push for promotion so make sure you’re there.
If you are going, there’s no better way to go than a boat trip down the Thames and a chance to see all the famous landmarks – Houses of Parliament, London Eye, HMS Belfast, Tower of London, Tower Bridge, etc. There will be a pay bar on board and there should be sausage and bacon butties available.
Please note that the boat is one way and you will have to make your own arrangements for the return journey. Prices are £10 adults and £5 kids. (Any profits will go back in some form to benefit Brentford Football Club). If you are interested please email the travel co-ordinator Jim Walsh on JamesW@bias.org.uk
It is anticipated that this second boat will sell out just as fast, so if you want to go by boat please book soon as there is no guarantee that we will be in a position to run a third boat.
It is also worth considering that this game will be All Ticket and Club Membership is therefore strongly advised.
