Witton Albion vs South Shields: Segregation at Emirates FA Cup fixture

Segregation will be in force at the Emirates FA Cup first qualifying round tie between Witton Albion and South Shields on Saturday.

Mariners supporters are advised to enter Wincham Park via the Lostock End, which is where the ground’s main car park is situated. Home supporters will be entering through the turnstiles at the Wincham End.

The social club, accessed from outside the ground, will be open to both sets of supporters before and after the match, but no alcohol will be permitted to be brought outside of it. Once inside the turnstiles, though, the social club will be inaccessible.

Both tea bars in the stadium will be open, to cater for both sets of supporters.

Admission is to be paid at the turnstiles at a cost of £10 for adults, £7 for OAPS, disabled supporters and students, and £3 for Under-18s.

Below is a map of the ground which has been provided by Witton Albion to demonstrate where supporters should enter.
