Dear Season Ticket Holders & Supporters,

As you know, the new North Stand will be opening on Boxing Day for the fixture against our local rivals Chorley. We have worked day and night over the past month to make this happen, and I am delighted that this afternoon we have been issued with the all-important Safety Certificate to allow us to open.

The North Stand will be your new ‘Home End’ as one of our supporters and somewhere really special to congregate on Match Day.

Within the concourse, we have built a complex which is truly unique in football, and I’m delighted to invite you to the opening event for Season Ticket Holders this coming Friday at 2.00pm. The bar will be open, and your first pint will be free.

On match days, starting with the Chorley game, the concourse will open exclusively to Season Ticket Holders at 12.00pm, where Carling will be £2.00 a pint until 1.00pm, when match day ticket holders will be allowed in. Every match day there will be entertainment building up to KO with a selection of Hot & Cold snacks also available.

I hope you are able to make it and personally look forward to welcoming you on Friday

David Haythornthwaite
