Lucy Matthews, Sport and Student Development Officer, said:  “I am delighted to be able to deliver on a bus to and from Coombe Dingle for both players and spectators of the Wednesday Games. It has been an aim for different Sport and Student Development Officers for a long time but now we can ensure that our students are getting to and from fixtures for free ensuring that ultimately their safety is prioritised.”
