Forthcoming Matches


In case you haven’t heard… we’re in the playoffs!

Although our opponents aren’t confirmed yet, we hope that isn’t too much of a factor and that you will want to be there to support the Bucks’ promotion bid, which starts with a home semi-final.

Below is what we can tell you about the game as things stand. There is a lot of information here, so please read the following to ensure you are aware of anything relevant to you; it will assist in giving everyone the best spectator experience possible.

(TicketCo – Events AFC Telford United

Tickets are also available in person from the club office inside the Learning Centre during regular opening hours, which are:

9 am to 2 pm Monday to Friday

Please note that the office will not be open on Wednesday 1st May, so your final opportunity to purchase tickets in person and in advance from the club office will be Tuesday 30th April.

There is also a hospitality offer for the game; details are on the poster on this page.

IMPORTANT: Segregation will be in place for this fixture

Details of stand allocations for away fans, which entrances to use etc will be published closer to the time, to allow the flexibility to set arrangements based on the number of tickets sold.

Fans will NOT be permitted to move between stands on the night, so please ensure you buy a ticket for the area of the ground from which you wish to watch the game.

The East (Jack Bentley) Terrace will have an additional temporary entrance through one of the fire exit doors, to assist with egress to the stadium.

The bar on the East Terrace (inside the Learning Centre) will be open.

The consumption of alcohol in the Hamer Leisure Stand (the Hutch) will NOT be permitted during the game.

There are no reserved seats in the main stand but we are currently exploring how season ticket holders who have purchased a ticket might reserve their usual seat.

OK, that’s inside the ground dealt with, but you may also wish to be aware of the following:


Please note that the A5223 Whitchurch Drive between the Princess Royal Hospital traffic island and the Furrows traffic island is scheduled for overnight closure in the week commencing 29th April 2024 and will be closed on the evening of the semi-final. This will take effect from 7 pm so please factor this into your travel plans if necessary.


Parking at the New Buck’s Head is available on a first-come, first-served basis.

For the benefit of those who have not visited the NBH before or haven’t done so in a while, there is NO available parking at Telford College.

It is likely that the number of persons wishing to park their vehicles at the ground will exceed our car parking capacity.

With this in mind, visitors are requested to show consideration for our residential neighbours.

If you cannot park at the ground, we ask you not to block side streets, etc and to consider parking in Wellington and walking to the ground where this is possible.

Details of car parks operated by Telford and Wrekin Council can be found below, by following the link to the TWC website:

Car parks – Telford & Wrekin Council

Club Shop

Our club shop, located next to the restricted access gate beneath the control tower, will open at 6 pm on the evening of the game, so there will be an opportunity to pick up a bargain in our sale of Bucks training kit.

Goalzone and Rise Gym

Goalzone will not open on the evening of 1st May 2024 and Rise Gym will close at 5 pm.


With all of the above to consider, we reckon your best course of action is to get yourself down to the New Buck’s Head at the earliest opportunity on the day and to create a real buzz for Kevin and the team to feed off.

Injury Updates

We have no obvious concerns over the fitness of any Bucks squad members.


Things We Learnt This Week

Everyone loves Orrin Pendley

Yes, there can be little doubt about this following our Season Awards evening.

Orrin collected three awards on the night:

  • Players’ Player of the Season
  • Manager’s and Directors Player of the Season
  • Supporters’ Player of the Season

Orrin also collected an award from the Bucks’ travelling support, collecting more player-of-the-match votes after each away game than his teammates.

Remi Walker was a landslide winner of the Young Player of the Season award, whilst Jordan Piggott was the club sponsors’ Player of the Season.


Stay Alert!

As next week’s semi-final moves closer, there will be further updates, most notably on who our opponents will be.

We’ll aim to share any pertinent information as it becomes available, so look for updates on our website and our social media channels.


Thank You

Finally, we’d like to say a big thank you to all of our supporters.

Your renewed passion for the Bucks is hugely gratifying for everybody at the club.

Kevin and his team deserve huge credit, but you have played and will continue to play a huge part in our drive to #RiseAgain.

Please continue to share your excitement and spread the word about the club to as many people as possible, and let’s #MoveTogether.
