Marine v Stratford Town Saturday

Covid-19 Step by Step Guidance

Football returns to the Webbswood Stadium for another Saturday with spectators in attendance for the second time. With last week’s game against Chippenham Town going to plan we now entertain Stratford Town this Saturday and the same Covid-19 measures will be in place.

The ground will have a reduced capacity of 600 for the game against Stratford Town as per FA guidelines under Stage 2 of allowing spectators to return to the Webbswood, of course we will not get anywhere near this figure so there will be plenty of room for the spectators to social distance.

Admission for this match will be £8 for Adults, £5 for Concessions and Children U12 accompanied by an adult are FREE. Once again, for this game we will be taking cash payments at the turnstile but this may change for future matches.

The turnstile will open from 1:30pm for access to the ground for spectators along with the bar and kitchen at the same time.

Entrance to the clubhouse bar will once again be via the Community Room and then exit from the Clubhouse door with the route clearly signposted.

Both home and away spectators are asked to complete their contact details ahead of the game if they attending this Saturday 5th September.

You can do this by clicking HERE to download the form. Then you can print the form, complete and bring along with you to help reduce a queue and potential congestion at the turnstile.

The completed form should then be handed to the steward on duty outside the turnstile entrance. The steward will also have a form for you to complete if you can’t do this ahead of the match but we strongly recommend spectators to print and complete this ahead of matchday, and don’t forget to bring it with you!

The club has completed a Covid-19 risk assessment and action plan and there will be measures in place for spectators, players, and official’s safety, which includes:

One-way system for the clubhouseKitchen open for a small selection of food & beverages
Track and trace measures
Spot temperature checks (agreeing to this is a condition of entry)
Social distancing measures with sign posting, including walkways
Sanitising stations
Wall mounted sanitisers
Reduced seating in the stands

Many thanks and your understanding ahead of the game Saturday and with your help and patience we believe we have the foundation of another successful day before the friendly with Bath City the following week on Saturday September 12th and then onto our opening League fixture in the 2020/21 season at the Webbswood Stadium against Tiverton Town on Saturday 26th September.
