Bognor’s home FA Trophy tussle with Grimsby will be all-ticket – but the second leg at Blundell Park will not be.

The Rocks have released all the details for the hotly-anticipated semi-final games.

The club issued the following information...

First leg - Saturday, March 12, at Nyewood Lane:

This match will be all ticket and with crowd segregation on police advice. Visiting supporters will be accommodated in the Sports Club end of the ground and therefore the turnstiles in the far corner of the ground will not be available to Bognor supporters.

All home supporters should enter the ground via the main entrance in Nyewood Lane.

The Sports Club car park will be reserved for visiting supporters’ parking and coach parking. Home supporters who normally park in this area are asked to make alternative arrangements for this particular match.

In view of an anticipated large attendance, supporters are asked to arrive early at the ground to avoid any delay in entry. We are extremely grateful that fans heeded this advice for the Torquay match and as a result there were no delays at the turnstiles.

Admission prices have been agreed at: Terracing - Adults £12; Under-18s £5; Stand - Adults £14.

These prices do represent a slight increase over our normal admission prices, which the club were initially reluctant to do.

However, this match is a semi-final of a national competition, one step away from the final at Wembley Stadium. The club also face considerable increased costs in staging the match.

Tickets will be available from the club office as soon as they have been received from the printers. Opening times will be published on this page. Payment can be made by cash or credit card.

They can also be purchased from either Maurice Warner or Simon Cook at the away matches at VCD on Saturday and at Burgess Hill Town next Wednesday (cash only).

Second leg - Saturday, March 19, at Blundell Park:

This match will not be all ticket and prices will be: Adults - £15; Concessions (OAPs and Juniors) - £5; Juniors accompanied by an adult - £1.

Blundell Park is an all-seated stadium. Bognor Regis Town supporters will be allocated the away section.

Tickets can be purchased in advance if required online at http://www.grimsby-townfc.co.uk/tickets/
