Meet the Branch: Thames Valley Whites

Meet the Branch: Thames Valley Whites

In a new feature that will appear here on Vital Leeds, I have started to get in touch with Supporters clubs just to find a little bit about them and also details of just what they have to offer.

In a time when the country is in recession, members of supporters clubs from all over the country still find the cash to dedicate themselves to the club they love.

The first branch to appear is probably one of the newest in the Official Members club.

I caught up with Steve Griffin, secretary of the Thames Valley Whites.

Steve is an exiled Leeds United fan now living in Oxfordshire, still dedicates himself to the club by organising and driving the mini buses up and down the country in all weathers to all home games.

Steve gave me the following details about the branch.

Thames Valley Whites Regional Members Club was formed early March 2009 and became an Official Members Club during the last home game of the 2009 season against Northampton Town.

Thames Valley currently has over 80 members and is growing fast. All are welcome to join whether you travel or not.

The branch organises travel from around the region for all home matches.

Price is a reasonable £20 per person.

Pick-ups are Reading Train Station, Wallingford, Didcot, Abingdon, Oxford,
Kidlington, Bicester and Brackley. Other pick-ups will be considered.

Travel is by a large mini-bus (ungoverned), and when demand meets then by a 49-seater coach.

Arrival at Elland Rd is generally by 1pm. Return travel is straight after the game with last drop offs usually by 8.30pm.

There is usually one stop at Leicester Forest Services on the M1 motorway.

Membership is currently free on completing an application form.

Club Chairman is Paul Keeffe
Secretary is Steve Griffin(Griff)
Treasury is Dale Norman

Contact the Branch by email. s.g@virgin.net


Thanks for your response Steve, £20 looks great value for money for a round trip in the region of 400 miles.

If any other Chairman or secretary`s would like to tell me a bit about their Leeds supporters branch then please feel free to e mail me with your details.
