Venue Change for Pre-Season

19 June 2014

Change of Venue for pre-season game v Sheffield Wednesday

In order to allow the pitch the maximum time to be prepared for the new season, the pre-season friendly game with Sheffield Wednesday will be played at the AJ Bell Stadium, Salford on Friday 18 July, 7:45pm Kick Off

Redevelopment work on the pitch was delayed by weather and although the redevelopment work is now complete, the club would like to see the surface have another ten days to grow.  With that in mind, the club have secured a deal with Salford City Reds to play the game with the Owls at the AJ Bell Stadium.

Ticket prices for this game are as follows:-

Adults:  £10
All concessions (Senior Citizen, Unemployed, Disabled, Under 16):  £5.00

Disabled supporters who are attending the game and require car parking – places must be booked before the day of the game with the Club to secure a place (0871 221 1885)
