SUFFOLK will have the support of at least 300 spectators at Monday's Minor Counties Knock-out Trophy final at Lord's.
Two 102-seat coaches - one departing from Ipswich and the other from Stowmarket and Bury St Edmunds - will be making their way to Lord's for the match against Cheshire.
Suffolk official David Armes, who is co-ordinating transport arrangements on behalf of the county, said yesterday: “At least half as many spectators as the 200 travelling by coach will be making their way to Lord's by car and train, so I am expecting at least 300 of our supporters at Lord's.” Armes, the county's administration officer, said that he was surprised that Brettenham Cricket Club - who have booked 28 spaces - are the only club in Suffolk to book to travel via the coaches.
The coach from Ipswich will be leaving at 7.30am from the coach park outside Crown House in Crown Street while the other coach will leave Tesco's car park in Stowmarket at 7am and pick up from the Ram Meadow car park in Bury St Edmunds at 7.30am.

It is anticipated the coaches will arrive at Lord's at around 10am, which is when the gates open. The 50-overs-a-side match starts at 11am. Entrance to the ground is £10 per person, which is payable at the gate.
There is no restriction on what food spectators can take into Lord's but they are only allowed to take either four cans of beer or lager or one 75cl bottle of wine or champagne.
