I understand that for this match only the North Stand will be open. What is the capacity of this stand and will entry be limited to just this number?

I think the capacity for the seating is around 900 to 1,000. Can't see a big crowd for a friendly so think the stand will be enough. Worth noting admission is only 10 in, 7 oap and free for under 16s. Roll on the season propper, that's all I say! :)

I hope to be there, just to see if Donny can give us a game! This is assuming GM sticks with the same team as last week.

If you're right DTID that would be a pleasant surprise. I always had the impression that the capacity was no greater than 600, particularly when all of the freebies are taken into account.

Fair enough - many of us did the same at your place in April '94.

Personally can't see a gate of no more than 5-600 anyway considering its a friendly, hence only 1 stand opening . The league match with donny, although was played on a Thursday night only got a crowd just short of 800 and can't see it topping that. Don't realy enjoy sitting personally, but I can see why the club have done this. I thought the club should of done this for the challenge cup 3 rd round match against the amatuers last season as the crowd was always going to be the lowest of the year.

We would like to officially confirm that Sunday's game with Doncaster has been postponed. While the pitch is currently playable it is very soft indeed and with further rain forecast over the next two days it is likely to be waterlogged. Both clubs therefore agreed to make the early decision to call the game off. Because it is a warm up fixture it will not be re-arranged.

 

We are trying to set up a new fixture for next weekend and further details will be announced in due course.

I've heard Hull Ladies are free that weekend and willing to give Dewsbury 10 start to make it competitive :spruceup:

Harder lads than Dewsbury's current crop wouldn't want to take on Hull ladies - nearly as fearsome as Wilton women's circle.
