BARS AND FOOD

The Club has a licence to serve alcohol throughout the match and fans will now be allowed to drink alcohol on the terraces. As a result all drinks will now be served in plastic glasses.

There will be 3 bars open for this match.

The Main Stand Function Room Bar will serve hot food together with alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks before, during and after the match. We ask that fans purchasing alcohol in the Main Stand Bar during the game do not congregate at the back of the Main Stand, but instead find a position in the seats or on the terraces.

Before the turnstiles open, access to the Main Stand Function Room Bar is via main reception on production of a match day ticket or by payment of the match admission price. After the turnstiles open, entry to the function room will be via all turnstiles and then through the seated area of the Main Stand.

Our Cask Ale Bar situated under the Main Stand, behind the Paddock, will sell a selection of real ales. Opposite the Cask Ale Bar the Food Bar will also serve hot food and non-alcoholic drinks.

In view of the pitch we have a Bar between the Main Stand and SMRE which serves draught bitter and lager.

The bar under the SMRE is closed for renovations.

BOARD SURGERY

Board Member Paul Haworth will be available to answer questions from fans on Tuesday at the Board Surgery taking place in the Main Stand Function Room between 6.15pm and 7.15pm

MATCH PROGRAMME

The match day programme, with some new features, is priced at £2 and is available from our hardy band of volunteer sellers both inside and outside the ground.

POUND FOR THE GROUND TICKETS

We are still raising money for the club’s Development Fund as we wish to carry out small ground developments and improvements to make the match day experience more enjoyable. Pound for the Ground tickets at £1 each help do this, and with a cash prize of £250 on offer you are not only helping the club but, if successful in the draw, being rewarded for doing so!! See any of our trusty band of sellers inside or outside the ground.
