Basildon Refs go into Europe

Here are further details of this year’s European trip:

Outward Flight
Stansted Depart 22/10/13 6.30am
Arrive Porto                      8.55am
Porto Depart    23/10/13  6.10pm
Arrive Stansted              8.30pm

Ticket details are not available yet but looking at their attendances the highest for a Champions League Group game in the last three years is around 35000 so there shouldn't be any problem getting tickets even if we have to pick them up out there. Ground Capacity is 50000

If Martin books the flights, accommodation, transport in Porto and airport parking it will be about £100. There will then just be the ticket cost which is expected to be no more than £40 but that is just a guess though.

What is needed now is for people to confirm whether they want to come or not and that they are ok with the ticket situation. If you do want to come Martin will be looking for a deposit of £100 to cover flights, hotel, etc.

Please contact Martin Berry on 07828 119562 or email ASAP to secure a place,


The FA/ECFA have been appointing officials to various games but there is a severe lack of notification to us so we can blow your trumpet and place the information on the website. Don't be shy, please let our secretary know

Jim Hawkins

Our Hon. Life Vice President Jim Hawkins has not been well of late and will be entering Southend Hospital tomorrow Monday 9th September to undergo an emergency procedure and hopefully it will not be cancelled yet again. We wish him all the best and hope he will be able to make a quick recovery.
