AFC Telford United have been working alongside Hereford FC and West Mercia Police ahead of Saturday’s game at the New Bucks Head.
It is always the aim is to create a safe environment for fans of all ages to attend games at the New Bucks Head and enjoy a game of football.
To mitigate against any poor behaviour, we are introducing increased safety and security measures including enhanced search procedures at the turnstiles.
At the game on Saturday, you are likely to see a significant stewarding/policing presence, more than usually seen at matches at the New Bucks Head. This is due to the derby nature of the fixture and the main aim of promoting public safety.
Before and after the fixture, measures will be put in place to ensure both sets of supporters arrive and leave the stadium in a structured manner via allocated pre-determined routes. To achieve this, we are looking for your support and understanding.
Home supporters will be asked to leave the stadium via specified routes, while Hereford supporters will be directed via an alternative direction.
Fans are encouraged to arrive early, therefore the turnstiles will open 15 minutes early on Saturday.
Win’s Bar will be open for home supporters only. Hereford supporters will be able to purchase an alcoholic drink in the away concourse.
We will be opening a cash turnstile for Hereford supporters on the Frank Nagington Stand. No card payments will be accepted.
We would like to express in advance our thanks for your anticipated co-operation.
