Supporters are encouraged to arrive in good time, to enter the ground as easily as possible, and arrive ahead of kick-off at 7.45pm. There will be a presentation to celebrate the career of Club captain and long-standing player Adam Davies, so we advise fans to get in there early.

Before kick-off on Friday, you can purchase a range of drinks from both of the club’s bar. Both Romans Bar and Webley's will be open from 5:45pm.

Holveys will be open from 7pm serving hot food, including the famous cob and chips. Please note this will be CASH ONLY.
