Team Solent vs South Shields: Westoe Travel options for Vase trip

South Shields face the long trip to Southampton in the fifth round of the Buildbase FA Vase after being drawn against Team Solent.

The match at Test Park is taking place on Saturday, January 28, with kick-off at 3pm.

Following discussions with club sponsor Westoe Travel, the following supporters’ travel to the game can be offered.


A 49-seater coach will be put on for supporters, leaving South Shields at 5.30am, with pick-up and drop-off points to be decided once the locations of supporters are known.

The coach will be operated by two drivers over the course of the day, and a toilet will be on board. It will return to South Tyneside after the match.

A place on the coach costs £36 for adults and £34 for children aged 16 and under.


Westoe Travel can also offer supporters the chance to travel to the game by rail and then stay overnight in Southampton afterwards.

The train will depart Newcastle’s Central Station at 6.55am on Saturday, January 28 and arrive in Southampton at 12.30pm.

The offer includes a stay at Hotel Ibis, in Southampton, and the return train will depart Southampton at 1pm on Sunday, January 29.

The train and one night stay in the hotel is available from £144 per person.
