Rams in town to help cut ribbon

Championship giants Derby County are taking on Coalville Town to mark the official opening of the EVO-STIK League club's brand new changing rooms and hospitality suite.

Representatives from the Football Foundation, the Leicestershire County FA and the EVO-STIK League Premier Division club's local council and sponsors will be guests of honour at Owen Street on Wednesday 8 November for the friendly after local MP Andrew Bridgen officially opens the new £320,000 facilities.

The Ravens announced the friendly and pre-match ceremony at The Mander Cruickshank Solicitors Stadium in a statement on Wednesday as Tommy Brookbanks prepared his side for the visit of Ashton United in the EVO-STIK League's top flight on Saturday.

The event kicks off from 6.15pm and the Ravens said: "We hope to see as many of you down as possible and it's also a great chance for Derby County fans to see their heroes up close and personal on the night. As it's the international break, we expect to see some first team members included in the squad."

Entry to the match is £5 across the board. For more information visit the club's official website or follow the Ravens on Twitter @CoalvilleTownFC.
