Alfreton to reduce prices for two festive games

Alfreton Town have two Christmas crackers lined up for football fans over the festive period.

The club is repeating the reduced admission prices trialed against Braintree Town recently, which brought a vastly-improved gate of 904. The attendance for the same fixture last season drew just 496.

Admission prices for both home games, against Dartford on December 21 and Southport on December 28, will be at the same low prices as the Braintree game.

Admission for adults (aged between 22 and 64) is £12 for each game, with concessions (65 and over) down to £10, a young adult (aged 17 to 21) is £5 and children under 16 can once again get in free provided, that they are accompanied by a paying adult.

Reds director John Glasby explained: “Obviously the first one was reasonably successful from our point of view. We are particularly interested in the under 16s section of the support as that was greatly increased for the Braintree fixture.

“We are not expecting a massive gate for the Dartford fixture but we would hope that the prices will attract both neutrals and non-regulars to the Impact Arena. However, we will be really disappointed if the Southport game is not a cracking gate,” ended Glasby.

Both the Dartford and Southport games have 3pm kick-offs.
