Club issues rallying call to Thunder Army

Newcastle Thunder are mobilising the Thunder Army ahead of Sunday’s crunch Kingstone Press League 1 Super 8s against York City Knights, with an official supporters coach set to run to the game.

Jason Payne’s side are part of a three way battle to seal the fifth and final play-off spot and need to take the win from Bootham Crescent to be in with a chance of being part of the push for promotion to the Kingstone Press Championship, making the support of the club’s fans crucial.

Leaving Kingston Park Stadium at 11:00, the coach will also make a stop to pick up supporters at Wasington Services, before travelling direct to the Knight’s stadium to arrive ahead of the 3pm kick off.

Places on the coach are available on a first come first served basis and are priced at £10 per person, with a minimum number of 30 supporters required to make the coach run.

Tickets for the game can be booked here, or bought on the day at the ground, priced at £15 for adults, £10 for concessions and free for Under 16s.

To book a place on the supporters coach, email Thunder general manager Jordan Robinson –
