    Default Coaches for the final question

    Have booked seats on a coach from Winchester as the nearest pick up point to where I live, and the tickets have arrived, but they don't say where in Winchester.

    Haven't been on an official saints coach since the semi final at Villa Park, but then they picked up on the Broadway , near the King Alfred statue. Does anyone know if that is the standard place in Winchester nowadays please, to save me trying to get through to the club on the phone? Got a vague feeling they used to pick up from the Tesco car park once upon a time?

    It's by the statue. Did it for Man U this season.

    Will be interesting to see how many coaches make the trip.

    I think there were 105 for the JPT final

    We went up on the Greyhound service that day.

    No longer running

    90 for the club? I know that "Southampton Away Travel" are now upto 24 coaches and i've also seen other adverts from companies such as Colosseum who are also running trips up.

    Appreciate any info on car parking at SMG for away games?

    I guess there will be a lot of demand and wonder if it is possible to book.

    Is it £5.00 for the day?

    I had emails from the club today saying that the pickup will be at St. Catherine's Park and ride of Guarnier Road with free parking all day.

    "With over 100 coaches making their way to Wembley on Sunday, we have arranged an alternative, safer and more convenient pick up point for your coach.

    The new pick up point will be at St Catherine’s Park and Ride on Garnier Road in Winchester.

    You'll be able to use the on-site car park free of charge for the whole day.

    The pick up time will remain unchanged with coaches leaving Winchester at 11am.

    Confusing title. Question the final for coaches you do.

    Useful information, I'm sure, but we still don't know what the final question is.

    If they booked early enough should be in the yellow parking zone. Engineers Way, just 200 yds north east of the stadium

    The Eastleigh coach is from the bus station near Sainsbury's?
