On Saturday the Lambs travel up what we hope will be a trouble free M6 motorway to play AFC Fylde who until recently have been sitting in top place but after a couple of shock results they now ently lie in second place. With Brendon Daniels starting the first of a two match ban there will at least one change to the sixteen players selected for the game. With injuries still ruling out Paul Green, Dan Preston and Rob Purdie the call will no doubt be for Manager Andy Morrell to name himself on the bench or can he surprise us all and lead from the front.
Looking at the information sent for the game it would appear that arriving early would be a good idea as it would seem parking could be an issue locally. Please read the travel details carefully and plenty of time to park
At the turnstiles which open at 1.00pm the prices will be £10 Adults, £7 Concessions (Over 60's, Disabled and Full time students with ID) Under 16's and Armed Forces Personnel with valid ID are able to gain free admission. The prices are for terraces and the main stand. The programme is a 48 page full colour edition for £2.
If any supporter wants to take a match day hospitality package they can contact Dave Riche on 07525 323775. There is a bar inside the ground where supporters can watch the TV game before kick off.
AFC Fylde has a car park for up to 150 cars at the ground. Supporters who arrive late and find the car park is full are advised Not to park on Bryning Lane immediately outside of the Birley Arms but to park either in Hillock Lane (turn left after Birley Arms car park) or further down Church Lane (which is a continuation of Bryning Road) in the direction of Warton
