WEMBLEY-BOUND: Regulars from the Royal Mail pub in Newport

First published in County go to Wembley

MORE than 10,500 tickets have been sold and the flags and banners are at the ready for the Black and Ambers history-making Wembley debut today.

One centre pub is to descend on London with an army of fans. The Royal Mail, on Mill Street, is taking 550 people in 11 coaches to the game this morning.

Landlord Mike Jones said the pub usually organised a coach to take people to County games.

"When we realised they got to Wembley friends of mine were saying they would bring their daughter and son," said Mr Jones.

"Before long we realised that we weren't going to take one or two coaches, we were going to take a lot more."

Each coach is being run by a pub regular, bringing family and friends along, as well as others such as the Gaer Inn and the County Choir.
