Following a series of meetings with all the authorities the Club can now announce the arrangements for our forthcoming 1st Rd FA Cup tie with Colchester Utd which will be played on Sat 7 Nov kick-off 3.00pm at The FREEBETS .CO.UK Stadium, Grosvenor Vale, HA4 6JQ.
There will be no ground segregation in operation for this tie but fans will be directed to designated turnstile by stewards on arrival. It is hoped that this decision is respected by all who attend. There will be a good number of stewards on duty in the ground at all times and fans from both clubs are asked to comply with any instructions given to ensure safety and security for all.
Match day admission charges have been agreed at:
Adults – £15
Concessions (over 65?s and students -? id needed please) – £10
Under 16?s – £2
It will be pay on the day (cash) with turnstiles opening at 13:00.
WFC fans will be able to purchase tickets in advance from the Ruislip Social Club in person from Mon 2 Nov and the Supporters Club via http://www.wfcmegastore.co.uk/ will be setting-up on-line ticket sales for those who wish to purchase in advance by early next week (no tickets will be posted, details on collection arrangements at the ground will be advised at the time of purchase).
Colchester Utd fans will be able to purchase tickets from their club from early next week if they so wish and on match day from designated Turnstiles which are located behind the Social Club.
The RSC will be open from 11:00 where you will be able to enjoy drinks, filled rolls, snacks etc whilst watching the lunch-time football on the big screen. All bars will close at 14:30 to allow fans time to finish their drink and get into the ground in time for kick-off. A polite reminder, no alcohol is allowed in the ground, if you get caught you can expect to be removed by one of the stewards and won’?t get to see the game!. The Social Club will remain closed until after the game. The Main hall will be off limits from 19:00.
WFC Youth will be operating a BBQ (incl. soft drinks ) adjacent to the Beer garden from 11:30 to 14:40 plus the @RollinKitchin situated behind the Club House will also be in operation from 13:00 and throughout the afternoon turning out hot grub (burgers, chicken, hot dogs triple fried chips, tea/coffee & cold drinks). In the ground the Tea Bar behind the dug-outs will be open serving hot & cold drinks and the usual selection of snacks.
It is planned that the normal arrangements for match-day parking will apply, i.e. on the grass/pitch area adjacent to the stadium. However if it has been tipping down with rain and the ground is waterlogged alternate parking arrangements in the side streets to the ground will operate. Please be aware that the Local Hillingdon traffic enforcement department will be out and about and if you happen to park your vehicle inappropriately in the one of the side streets you are likely to get a ticket. You have been warned!
The club recently ran a special promotion inviting FREE entry to a game in the excellent My Ruislip Magazine. Regrettably the competition rules administered by the Football Association mean that this offer has to be rescinded on this occasion. The Club are therefore prepared to offer individuals an alternate voucher for our next home Vanarama National League South game at the FREEBETS.CO.UK stadium on Sat 21st November when we take on Bath City kick-off 3.00pm.
You may recall versus Rotherham Utd 6 years ago we had 11 mascots accompanying the players out onto the pitch, which proved to be very successful and the club have decided to do the same thing for the Colchester Utd game and with the added benefit of MOTD cameras being present, it is not to be missed by your child.
Jay Hogg, chairman of Wealdstone youth FC is providing the mascot service with Darrell West at £60 per child to include a signed photo memento of the occasion [this has not changed since 6 years ago so is great value].
Please contact Jay on 07788 713887 or email him on firstname.lastname@example.org , do hurry as spaces are at a premium!
