Published on 19th March 2013 by Tom Tainton

Information for supporters travelling to St Peter

 

For supporters making the trip to Jersey on Saturday, please see the information listed below, kindly submitted by Jersey RFC.

FRIDAY, 22 MARCH

The Barclays Pavilion will be open between 5.30pm and 7.30pm. The weekend’s supply of Liberation Ale will be tapped, and the Club will be providing free nibbles.

SATURDAY, 23 MARCH – PRE-MATCH

Jersey RFC will host a pre-match lunch for members, sponsors and corporate guests in the Clubhouse and a neighbouring marquee. The Clubhouse lunch is sold out, but limited corporate tables are available in the marquee, contact jerseyrugby.club@jerseymail.co.uk or call 01534 49929 if you are interested.

The Pavilion Bar, adjacent to the Clubhouse, will be open to all supporters from 12pm, offering a full bar, including locally-brewed Liberation Ale on handpump, plus food such as ‘special of the day’, ‘posh dogs’, pasties and burgers etc.

There are various ‘off-site’ options - the first of which is the neighbouring Jersey Bowl which backs onto the club and does a good trade in pre-match rugby lunches and tables can be booked there.

THE MATCH

Ground Admission is £15 and £3 for juniors aged 13-16 (or full-time students with suitable ID). Our small stand is fully subscribed, with the exception of seats for the invited officials as above.

Please call the club on 01534 499929 between 10am and 1pm Thursday or Friday if you need to arrange a seat. Tickets can be obtained on Friday at the club, but will also be readily available on match-day.

There’s not a great deal of space under cover (standing or seating) at St Peter, so it’s wise to have warm/ waterproof gear in case of inclement weather, and some sensible footwear.

TRANSPORT

For those flying in/out on the day, the ground is less than 10 minutes walk from the airport. A taxi to/from the ground to town (St Helier) will be around £15.

Or there’s the No 9 bus to/from St Helier (£1.70) which stops outside the ground or the number 15 to the Airport (also £1.70; get off at the penultimate stop, The Mermaid, and it’s a 5-minute walk).

Return bus times will be posted at the main gate on the day of the match or you can visit www.libertybus.je

MOBILE PHONES

Some visiting supporters have received large phone bills on their return from the Island because the small-print on their tariffs didn’t include Jersey, leading to higher call/ roaming/ data charges. If you’re in doubt about this, it might be a good idea to check out your phone contract in advance.
