Bay handed maximum of 300 tickets for Poole tie

THE first leg of the Whitley Bay FC FA Vase semi-final at Poole Town on Saturday, March 26, is an all ticket game.

The home club have decided that with a capacity of 2,000 at their Tatnam ground, demand for tickets will be such that Whitley will be allocated just 300 tickets.

These will be on sale from Hillheads Park this week and will be available at Saturday’s game against Consett.

The Dorset club have also decided that due to the size of their ground, crowd segregation will be in place, with Whitley fans restricted to one section of the ground.

Coach transport to Poole has been arranged and will depart from Hillheads Park at 5am, with seats priced £35, although a reduction may apply if there is sufficient demand.

Fans requiring seats should contact Tommy Moody as soon as possible on 07905 301266.

Seats may also be booked at the Consett game this weekend.

The return leg at Hillheads on Saturday, April 2, will not be all ticket, but fans are urged to buy tickets in advance to reduce congestion at the turnstiles.

These tickets, £10 for adults and £5 for concessions – the same price as for the last two FA Vase sem-finals at Hillheads – will be on sale from the club on Saturday at the Consett game and from the clubhouse at other times.

Further details of ticket sales will be provided on the club website,
