27 September 2019

Next week’s Under-23s Premier League Cup encounter against West Bromwich Albion will now be played at the Sands Venue Stadium on Friday, October 4th (7.00pm kick-off).

This is because the venue that was being used next week is now in use by Hednesford Town for their FA Cup third qualifying round fixture.

Admission for the encounter against the Baggies will be £3 for adults and £1 for over-65s and under-18s in the Lincs Lifts Stand only (Turnstiles 8A and 8B), while 12th Man holders for the 2019-20 season can gain entry free of charge providing they produce their season ticket card on the turnstile.

Refreshments will now be on sale from the club restaurant, and the facility will be open for all. Meanwhile, a catering point will be open in the corner of the Lincs Lifts Stand nearest the Britcon Stand.

The previously advised home game on 21st January 2020 will now be away at West Bromwich Albion.

The revised list of fixtures is as follows:

Friday, October 4th, 2019 Iron v West Bromwich Albion 7pm Sands Venue Stadium, DN15 8TD

The Iron overcame two qualifying rounds to make it into the competition proper, which now adopts a Champions League format, with six group stage games to take place, facing each team both home and away. The tournament comprises of eight groups of four clubs, with the top two teams advance to the knockout stage.
