As a reward for the tremendous support shown to the club so far this season, ALL paying supporters will be offered a free drink at the game against Stalybridge Celtic on Saturday.

This will be the Mariners’ final home match before Christmas and we want to spread a bit of festive cheer during the period of celebration.

A voucher will be handed out at the turnstiles to all season ticket holders, sponsors pass holders, those who have pre-bought tickets for the match and supporters who pay at the turnstile on the day of the game.

Adults will be handed a voucher entitling them to a pint of Foster’s, John Smith’s, Strongbow, the draught soft drink of their choice or a hot drink.

Under-18s will receive a voucher entitling them to a draught soft drink or a hot drink.

The vouchers must be redeemed on Saturday.

The turnstiles will open at 12pm and our usual Happy Hours will be in operation between 12.30pm and 1.30pm, and between 5pm and 6pm. During those times, pints of Foster’s, John Smith’s and Strongbow will be £2, and Birra Moretti will be £2.50.

We will be showing the Manchester City vs Everton game on the TVs at 12.30pm, with Fulham against West Ham United to be shown at 5.30pm.

In addition, we are encouraging supporters to dress in their best Christmas wear at the game.

We will judge the best outfit and the winner will receive two free carveries at Mariners Park.
