The first team don’t have a competitive game on Saturday (14 October) as opponents Curzon Ashton are in action in the FA Cup – but the club has announced an exciting exhibition game instead.

This will be between our first team, who have won two of their last three league games, and our exciting Emerging Talent Squad, who are making excellent progress in this year’s FA Youth Cup.

Who will win the Citadel bragging rights?!

Kick-off is 3pm KO and entry is free. The kitchen will be serving food and drinks, and The Nest Bar will also be open.

And that’s not all!

Also on Saturday volunteers from the supporters’ club will be trimming overgrown trees on the ginnel that runs alongside the ground, behind the dugouts.

You are welcome to join them at the club from around 12pm. Please wear suitable clothing!

And if you’re around in the evening…

To complete a busy day at the Citadel we will be holding a live rock and pop music night at The Nest Bar, with the excellent Neon Dice performing hits throughout the decade.

It’s free entry for an amazing night, lovely atmosphere, great drinks and fabulous company. First set is at 9pm. Second is at 10.30pm.

Please come and support your local club. See you there!
