Rossendale Update and message to members

The Presidents Cup 3rd Round game against Rossendale will be played at Gigg Lane this Saturday 26 January 2008, kick off 3pm. As this game has to be played at Gigg Lane it is likely to result in the club suffering a loss in staging this game.

The gate receipts for cup games are shared between the two competing clubs, but apart from a small allowance for expenses we have to pay the entire cost of the ground hire and associated costs from our share. Further details of costs, confidential to our members, who are the owners of the club are available within the “members docs” area of the website at http://www.fcapps.co.uk. An email will be sent shortly to members with a reminder of their login details

We’d like to remind supporters that to keep costs down, only the Main Stand will be open for this game. There will be no segregation within the stand and no access to the lounge areas. Although the Manchester Road End won’t be open for the game, there will be normal access to Course You Can Malcolm from 12 noon. Please arrive early for CYCM as it is likely to fill to capacity very quickly. Unfortunately we will be unable to open CYCM at half time.

We thank our supporters for showing such patience with the initial uncertainty surrounding the date and venue of this game and this late confirmation of the restrictions we’re putting on the ground. We need to get as large a crowd as possible for this game and we urge all supporters to attend and roar our team on to the next round, which would put us into another Quarter Final.

Normal league admission prices will apply:

£7.50 Adults
£5.00 Concessions and Unwaged
£2.00 Under 18s

The Curzon Ashton game originally scheduled for this date has been rearranged to Wednesday 5 March, kick off 19.45.
