Last chance to be at historic tie!

1 year ago By David Watters

EVO-STIK League Shaw Lane are warning fans to take their last chance on Friday to get tickets for their televised Emirates FA Cup clash with Mansfield Town or miss out on seeing the Ducks making history in person.

Saturday lunchtime's first round proper clash with the Stags at Sheerien Park is all ticket and the EVO-STIK League Premier's Ducks say they will be sale from 10am until 7pm on Friday evening.

Tickets are priced at £10 for adults and £6 for concessions and as new turnstile facilities were being installed by Stadium Solutions on Thursday to cope with the bumper crowd expected, the Ducks used their official Twitter account to remind supporters to forget about turning up without tickets, @SLAquaFC tweeting: "No pay on the gate under any circumstances".

Like Hyde United who are hosting MK Dons live on BBC 2 on Friday night to kick off a weekend of cup football with Nantwich Town also flying the EVO-STIK League's flag at Stevenage, the Barnsley club will bank a £67,500 TV fee from the Football association after BT Sport chose to cover their tie live and the kick-off was brought forward to 12.30pm.

Shaw Lane chairman Craig Wood used @SLAquaFC on Thursday to urge everybody connected with the Ducks to enjoy the occasion whatever the result for manager Craig Elliott and his side on their latest giant-killing mission, tweeting: "This is the highlight of our history. We must cherish it, embrace it & enjoy it." - @SLAquaFC chairman Craig Wood. #FACup"
