In view of the stated segregation has anybody raised the question of seating?

A number of our fans prefer to sit to watch the game and in some cases are unable to stand.

Thanks

Jane

The two sides first met in the FA Cup Second Qualifying Round in September 2010 at Gigg Lane, when Glynn Hurst scored twice in a 2-1 win against the Conference North side watched by 1037.
Gainsborough were members of Football League Division Two between 1896 and 1912. They were founder members of Conference North in 2004. In 2011-12 Trinity lost the Conference North play-off Final 0-1 at home to Nuneaton Town.
Gainsborough escaped relegation on the final day of 2016-17 despite losing 1-5 in Moston thanks to AFC Fylde beating Worcester City 4-2.
The Holy Blues are one of 5 clubs who have not drawn at home in the League this season, the others being Salford City, Blyth Spartans, Tamworth and FCUM.
FCUM have now come back from 0-2 8 times to win. They have never lost from being 2-0 up.
