There's Boxing Day football at Arbour Park - and it's 2nd vs 1st as we host top-of-the-table Wealdstone!
After the disappointment of two postponements and a blank weekend, we're back at Arbour Park with a huge three points up for grabs.
A much larger than average crowd is expected, and as usual we have pulled together some useful information for supporters in advance.
Kick off is at 13:00, and the turnstiles will be open from around 11:30.
A limited amount of free parking will be available at Lynch Hill Enterprise Academy. Please note that the car park at St Joseph’s School is open to Parking permit holders only. It will be open from around 11:30 to 12:45 and then after the game for cars to leave.
As public transport services will be reduced and car parking at or around Arbour Park is limited, we strongly advise supporters to take advantage of the many public car parks which are a 10-15 minute walk away. More details around parking arrangements can be found further below.
