Trinity and North Ferriby agree ticket reduction

Gainsborough Trinity and North Ferriby United have agreed a reduced price for entry to their replayed derby game next week.

The Blues petitioned the Football Conference in order to make the game free for supporters, after the original fixture was called off in the second half due to a floodlight failure.

But the authorities have deemed the game a ‘cup fixture’ in financial terms, which means money must be taken on the gate and split between the rivals.

The two clubs have reached an agreement that adults should only pay £5 however, with children and concessions paying £2.

Before Tuesday’s derby, Trinity are at home to Colwyn Bay on Saturday.
