AFC Bournemouth supporters can travel to Carlisle for the FA Cup second round fixture for free with the AFCB Vital sponsored supporters coaches.

Just over a month after the Cherries faced Carlisle in League One, the Cherries reward for beating Dagenham & Redbridge 4-0 in the first round was an away tie with Carlisle.

The 714 mile round trip is a daunting one and the best way to do it without taking to the skies of course is by travelling with the AFCB Vital sponsored supporters coaches and AFC Bournemouth chairman Eddie Mitchell has announced that travel via the coach for this game will be free.

Mitchell told the Daily Echo

“I thought the supporters gave the team tremendous backing at Doncaster. Our fans were very vocal and it made a difference. I am sure it helped the players and helped us win.

“As a thank you and to show our appreciation, we would like to offer free coach travel to Carlisle in the FA Cup. We have got three long away trips one after another and I hope it will help.”
