Limited spectator entry for Grays Athletic v Enfield Town friendly – Saturday 22nd August (3pm)

We have been informed by Grays Athletic that there will be 30 first-come-first served tickets for away supporters available for the friendly match at Parkside, Aveley tomorrow (Saturday 22nd).

The tickets will cost £5 for adults and £1 for children aged 16 and under.

In order to register for an away ticket, Town supporters should email as soon as possible, with ‘GRAYS TICKET APPLICATION’ in the message subject field.  It may not be possible to accommodate all applications, which will be strictly monitored and limited to one ticket per personal application only.  Please make sure you include your name and which price band you are applying for.

If you are successful in terms of being one of the first thirty applications, you will be notified and you will then be asked to report to Match Secretary John Dolan outside the main turnstiles on the day to collect your ticket and pay for it in cash (only) at the turnstile.

Please note that there is an earlier match on at the stadium which is due to finish by 2.15pm and entrance to the ground will not be permitted before this. John will be available from 2.15 onwards. We have been told that the tea bar will be open for refreshments, and supporters attending have been asked to be patient, and take directions from stewards.

Town supporters who attend the match will do so at their own risk.

Following this announcement, please note there will be a separate, wider announcement about the way Enfield Town FC proposes to run a trial match as part of an incremental way of allowing spectators back into matches at the QEII Stadium.

Further background information on tomorrow’s friendly at Parkside from the Grays Athletic website:

“As most supporters are aware following the government announcement on Tuesday night and the FA guidance issued yesterday, the gradual return of spectators to non-league football at step 3 and below has commenced. This means that our supporters will have their first opportunity to watch The Blues since March.

“The maximum attendance that we are allowed to have at this stage of the return is 200 and the club has to hold a successful fixture under these rules to enable us to move to stage 2 for our friendlies, league and cup games in September.

“Therefore, we have to monitor spectator numbers very closely at these two friendlies to ensure that the club do not breach any rules and just as importantly we need to adhere to all aspects of the risk assessment plan that has been put together by ourselves in consultation with Aveley FC”.
