BARS AND FOOD

There are a total of 5 bars at Broadhurst Park. All supporters will have access to all bars and food provision.

The club has been granted a licence to serve alcohol throughout the match and fans will now be allowed to drink alcohol on the terraces in view of the pitch. As a result all drinks will now be served in plastic glasses.

The Main Stand Function Room Bar will serve hot food together with alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks before, during and after the match. We ask that fans purchasing alcohol in the Main Stand Bar during the game do not congregate at the back of the Main Stand, but instead find a position in the seats or terraces.

Before the turnstiles open, access to the Main Stand Function Room Bar is via the main reception on production of a season ticket or match ticket or by payment of the match admission price. After the turnstiles open, entry to the function room will be via turnstiles 1-6 or 9-12 and then through the seated area of the Main Stand.

The SMRE bar situated under the large St. Mary’s Road End terrace will serve draught beer and bottles before and during the match.

Our Cask Ale Bar situated under the Main Stand, behind the Main Stand Paddock, will sell a selection of real ales before and during the match. Opposite the Cask Bar, the Food Bar will serve hot food prepared by our chef, pies from HM Pasties and non-alcoholic drinks.

In view of the pitch we have a Bar between the Main Stand and SMRE which serves draught lager and bitter before and during the match. The Bar situated in the North Stand (opposite the Main Stand) will not be open for this match but the Burger Van situated there will be.

Please note the Main Stand and SMRE bars are No Smoking Areas. Supporters wishing to smoke at half-time can do so in the designated areas in the corners of the ground.

POUND FOR THE GROUND TICKETS

We are still raising money for the club’s Development Fund as there are parts of the ground we need to complete. Pound for the Ground tickets at £1 each on a match day offer another opportunity to do this with cash prizes on offer. See any of our dedicated band of ticket sellers around the ground.

You can also donate by dropping your loose change and foreign currency into the DF barrels that are strategically placed around the ground.

CLUB SHOP

The Club Shop is accessible at the front of the ground to the right of the Main Entrance.

The ‘End of line merchandise sale’ continues with a wide range of items on sale. Some new items are always being added to the merchandise range so why not pop in and see what is in stock.

The shop will be open before the game and for 15 minutes after the final whistle.

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. Trinity have lost all of their last 6 away fixtures scoring none and conceding eighteen.
This is a match between the two bottom clubs in the form table, Gainsborough in 21st and FCUM in 22nd.
Trinity manager Lee Sinnott played for Watford against Everton in the 1984 FA Cup Final aged 18, and led Altrincham to National League North play-off success against Guiseley in 2013-14.
