On Saturday we welcome Chippenham Town to Arbour Park in National League South - and we have pulled together some useful information for supporters in advance.
We will remember the life of ‘Super Kev’ McGoldrick, our physiotherapist of 32 years who passed away one year ago last Thursday. We will be honouring Kevin’s memory on Saturday, and many of his family will be present as guests of the club. We invite supporters to participate in a minute’s applause in the 32nd minute of the match to mark his long service and total dedication, commitment and love for our club, even through the hardest of times.
We will also welcome representatives from Thames Valley Police (TVP), who will be setting up a 'Have Your Say' stall at Arbour Park. This initiative gives members of the public the opportunity to speak to TVP about whatever they like, and to see if they can help. They also provide crime prevention advice and opportunities to sign up to their TVP alert, which is a text message service informing of current crime trends and advice to prevent people becoming victims.
And after the game, the bar will be open and we’ll be screening Arsenal v Chelsea (KO 17:30) - spread the word!
The turnstiles and bar facilities will be open from around 13:30 and the car park at St Joseph's School (for Slough Town supporters with permits only) will be open from around 13:30 to 14:45 and then after the game for cars to leave.
Turnstiles 1 (Lynch Hill Enterprise Academy end) and 4 (St Joseph’s School end) will be open. Credit and debit cards may be used at Turnstile 4.
All tickets will be available at the turnstiles and will not be sold in advance. Admission prices are as below:
Adult (18-64) - £13
Concession (65+) - £9
Student (16-17, Student) - £5
