Ticket prices reduced again for FA Cup tie
County will face Woking in the FA Cup first round at Edgeley Park on Saturday 5th November and once again the club have continued their recent tradition of slashing ticket prices for the FA Cup games by offering a reduction in admission prices for the tie against The Cardinals.
County have played three FA Cup ties so far this season and all have been played at Edgeley Park, and fans will be able to benefit from reduced ticket prices for the first round game against Woking following the board’s decision to once again slash prices by a third for the game. Adults (aged 18 – 64) will be charged £10, concessions will be charged £7 and children aged 6 – 17 years will be charged £4 for the game as County look to reach the FA second round for the first time since the 2009/10 season.
The first round draw on Monday evening saw County drawn at home against either Torquay United or Woking, although Tuesday’s replay at the Laithwaite Community Stadium saw Woking progress to face the Hatters following a 2-1 win. Woking currently sit in 20th place in the Vanarama National League and despite our opponents being in the League above the players and fans will be hopeful of causing an FA Cup shock, especially as we are at home and enjoying a decent run of form at the moment.
Jim Gannon’s side have won five of their last six matches with that solitary defeat coming against current League leaders AFC Fylde at Edgeley Park when we should have taken at least a point. If we get good results in our two games before the Woking game (Chorley away and Kidderminster Harriers at home) then there is no reason why we shouldn’t be confident of causing an upset against Garry Hill’s side.
The FA Cup tie in November will be only the third time the two sides have met in their history, as we first played them in the Blue Square Premier League during the 2012/13 season where we lost both games 1-0 under Jim Gannon.
The club are hoping that the reduced admission prices for the tie will mean that a bumper crowd will be inside Edgeley Park to cheer the players on. County have averaged just under 2,500 fans in the three FA Cup games played so far this season, with the highest attendance (3,181) watching County secure their passage into the fourth qualifying round following a 2-0 victory over Salford City.
