This service would appear to be a replacement for Hamiltons & Buckbys service 302 which ran for the last time last Saturday.

H & B's service 304, which ran on Wednesdays and Saturdays between Desborough and Northampton, was also withdrawn at the same time.

Well, we will be in the Premier League next season...  ;) 8)

....although as Regent Road (Stand 1) is a fair walk from the ground, you'd need to miss the last 5-10 mins of the match to have any chance of catching it!!

I see that  from Saturday 12th April Diamond Coaches are running route 232 from Rushden to Leicester, and subsequent second Saturdays in the month, details are on the Northamptonshire website

I had a ride on it last Saturday, I'd be surprised if it lasts 3 months with abosulute no publicity, I was the only one on it.

Service being withdrawn as of 23/2/2014, such a shame it lasted less than a year...

I believe the 232 has been far more successful!

Diamond Coaches have changed their route to avoid Kettering because the journey time was too long.
