A road well travelled

Looking ahead to tomorrow night and the things we might highlight to the wider club, I've been thinking about travel - and how much you do. There are some quite amazing figures...

Assuming all your journeys start from the club (so we are ignoring the fact that some of you have to travel bit just to get to Letchworth) if you have played in every game by the end of this season...
  • Under 14s will have travelled 774 miles (or 1,346 miles if you include the tour)
  • Under 17s will have travelled 1,336 miles (or 1,908 miles if you include the tour)
  • Hertfordshire County players will have travelled an additional 476 miles
  • East Region players will have travelled an additional 906 miles

So - in total - our East Region players (Nim and Hayley) have done an amazing 3,290 miles this season (Fern may have even done slightly more than that as her regional away game was in Manchester, and her "home" county fixture was at Newark - though she does "gain" a bit by starting at Ampthill).

Anyway this is around about Letchworth to New York in one direction, Letchworth to Sudan in another, or Letchworth to somewhere in the Urals about 1,000 miles east of Moscow in a third.

Also - assuming an average 60 miles an hour or so - that means over two and a quarter days travelling. And that doesn't include toilet stops, or visits to McDonalds and Burger King!
