Normal league prices will apply at the New Manor Ground this Saturday (22nd) when Ilkeston FC launch their FA Trophy campaign against Evo-Stik Southern League Division One Central high-flyers Biggleswade Town.
Admission will be £7 for adults, £4 concessions and £1 for under-16s when they are accompanied by an adult.
FA regulations mean the game will be “all-pay” - with no discounts available for the various Supporters Group schemes or the free admission for Ilkeston FC Juniors.
Club secretary Andrew Raisin said: “Gate receipts from FA Trophy matches are shared between the two clubs and the FA, so everyone must pay on the gate.”
Bedfordshire side Biggleswade are undefeated in the league since the opening day of the season and have taken 23 points from the last available 27, and with table-topping Ilkeston FC currently boasting a record of 18 points from the last 24, it really does promise to be a match to remember.
Should a replay be required it will take place at Biggleswade on Tuesday, October 25 and admission prices will be £8 for adults, £5 concessions and free admission for children when accompanied by an adult.
