Fans Back For Local Matches

Non-League football fans will be welcomed back in Nottinghamshire this weekend as the government and FA have okayed a small restricted number to be in attendance at each game across various levels of the pyramid dependent on tier.

With Notts in tier 3 due to covid restriction currently, the proposal is that step 3 teams (including Basford United) will be allowed 300 supporters, step four teams (Carlton Town & Worksop Town) will be allowed 200 and those at step five or below can hold up to 150 in attendance.

Ollerton Town, currently in step six, will allow a maximum 150 supporters through their turnstiles for the visit of Graham St Prims in the East Midlands Counties League with take away hot drinks and food available at the Fast Frame Stadium, although unfortunately they’ll be no matchday programme on offer.

The club have asked fans to follow social distancing and sign in well before the 3pm kick off using track and trace on arrival.

Also in the step six EMCL, Kimberley Miners Welfare host Belper United at the Stag Ground on Saturday with tickets £5 adults and £3 concessions. The only other Notts team in EMCL over the weekend action is Sherwood Colliery who travel the short trip across the border to Shirebrook Town.

In the FA Vase tomorrow, Rainworth Miners Welfare travel to Anstey Nomads in the search of making round three where the winners will visit Coventry Sphinx and also in cup contest, Basford United are in FA Trophy action following their return on Tuesday with a thumping 5-0 win against Rushall Olympic. Tomorrow the club take on Felixstowe & Walton United at Greenwich Avenue in the Buildbase sponsored cups second round with the winner playing either Hitchin or Peterborough Sports in round three.

With a 300 capacity in place for the match tomorrow, the club have asked fans to purchase tickets online with adult prices £9 and concessions from £7 with under 16’s just £3 entrance.

Finally want to take in some free football? Head down to a NSL match as the Notts Senior League see’s league leaders Bingham Town visit Bilborough Town at Harvey Hadden Stadium whilst amongst others, two famous old names locally face off, as Keyworth United plays Southwell City at Platt Lane.
