Lucketts Travel has confirmed that the first coach for Portsmouth FC away game matches will be wheelchair accessible. The Fareham based operator is the official away fans’ travel provider, having provided transport for Pompey supporters for many seasons and is also a sponsor.
MD of Lucketts Travel, Tony Lawman, said: “Portsmouth fans are a passionate bunch and it’s an absolute pleasure to help them get to away games in comfort and style. We’re looking forward to an exciting season ahead, with even more accessible travel now available.”
Chairman of the club’s Disabled Supporters Association, Basher Benfield, said: “Having this coach has been an absolute godsend to disabled people, it’s a brilliant idea. Before people had to go by car and often had to pick and choose which matches they could attend. It’s all changed now and it’s proving really popular.”
