FA CUP PREVIEW | Fleetwood Town

Tonight the Magpies host Fleetwood Town in the Emirates FA Cup First Round Proper live on BT Sport. The fixture is completely SOLD OUT and to ensure you have the best possible experience please take a look at the following information.


We’d like to welcome our old friends The Chorley Building Society to the match this evening. They’ve supported the club for a number of years, and we hope that continues in the future. Whilst the world may have changed beyond recognition, the Society has remained true to its traditional, mutual values with its focus on providing an individual service to all its members. They deliver simple, flexible and attractive products that are of benefit to members and intermediaries, both on a regional and national basis. For many, Chorley Building Society is the building society of choice; the trusted brand. For more information ring: 01257 235000. 


PLEASE NOTE THIS GAME IS ALL TICKET. IF YOU HAVEN’T A TICKET, YOU WON’T BE ALLOWED INTO THE GROUND. Gates open at 6pm and entry into the social club before the game is also ALL TICKET although at full time the bar will be open as normal to supporters. We’d like to thank our fans for their understanding as we host the draw in front of an estimated combined BBC and BT Sport audience of over two million people. 


We’ll have a special commemorative issue on sale with a host of features dedicated to our biggest game in recent years. The 68-page, A4 publication includes a whole host of memories and recollections from players, managers and supporters. There’s also many other features including facts and stats from Phil Annets (@FACupFactfile) and exclusive interview with legend Gordon Griffith. It also includes exclusive columns from Ken Wright, Matt Jansen, Andy Teague, Dave Riche, Josh McLoughlin and Dan Jewell. The programme costs £5 and is on sale from the club office throughout the day. Look out for a seller near you around the ground and pick up the ultimate souvenir. 


Why not have a gamble on the match day 50/50 from one of our sellers. For just £1 it’s well worth a flutter! The prize will be the biggest of the season so why not try your luck?


Please note our car park is now full - although we’ll have a park and ride scheme from Asda and Morrisons between 6pm and 10.30pm. Our coach providers Avacab will provide a free shuttle bus service which will collect from both car parks and drop off at regular intervals to Ashby Street and Duke Street. Those parking at Morrisons must remove vehicles by 10.30pm when the gates close. 


As usual, our Twitter Man of the Match will be available for supporters to choose from a shortlist of four that are nominated 20 minutes before full time. All you need to do is visit @chorleyfc and pick a player. The presentation will take place in the main room after the final whistle. Our sponsors Man of the Match will also be taking place afterwards in the 1883 Lounge with The Chorley Building Society. 


Our recently refurbished club shop will be open from 12 noon to collect admission and hospitality tickets. New stock is now on sale including programmes, bobble hats, scarves, mugs, badges and key rings along with replica shirts, caps. t-shirts, polo shirts and fleeces available so come and see our range. 


At half time we’d like to welcome boxer champion Jack Catterall, who became the third man from Chorley to win a British boxing title after defeating super-lightweight champion Tyrone Nurse. The 24-year-old will parade his belt at half time after admitting his ‘dreams came true’ at the Leeds Arena. Victory for Catterall, means he becomes Chorley’s third Lord Lonsdale title holder, the first at super-lightweight, with welterweight Michael Jennings and lightweight Carl Crook being the other two champions.
