A major operation mounted by Beverley, East Yorkshire-based Acklams Coaches saw it arrange a total of 112 coaches to carry Hull City FC fans to Wembley for the club’s FA Cup semi-final against Sheffield United on Sunday 13 April â€“ and thanks to the Tigers’ victory, will repeat it next month for the final. .
Operators from as far apart as Durham, Leicester and Rochdale all provided coaches to complement Acklams’ own fleet of 10, which was assisted by two service vehicles and a ‘spare’ coach.
â€œIt came together well,â€ says Alan Acklam. â€œAll the operators we used were very helpful and they understand that things might change with regards to ticket sales.â€
