With a much larger than usual attendance expected for the Boxing Day clash against AFC Telford United, an equally much larger preparation of Keys Park has been required. After discussions with stadium safety personnel, the following details can be announced:
Hednesford Town supporters will occupy the Main Stand, adjacent side terracing at the “Heath Hayes” side end of the stand and the Heath Hayes End terrace as has been done before for high profile matches.
Entry for home supporters will be via turnstiles 3A, 3B, 4A, 4B & 4C. The Main Stand can be accessed through 3A, Season Ticket Holders and Passes through 3B, Adults & Concessions through 4A & 4B whilst the Family Gate will be through 4C.
AFC Telford supporters will occupy the Hednesford End terrace and stand, adjacent side terrace in front of the Club Shop.
Entry for away supporters will be via turnstiles 1A, 1B, 2A & 2B. There will also be a Family Gate in operation for away supporters and this can be accessed through turnstile 2B.
With there being a larger than average attendance we are asking supporters of both sides to arrive early with turnstiles opening from 1.00pm. Please also be aware that we are trailing a new entrance plan which sees Adults and Concessions being able to enter through either turnstile, please be patient as we hope that this will mean quicker access to Keys Park.

It is planned to accommodate an AFC Telford supporters coach at the rear of the Hednesford End terrace. This will enable the shortest travel distance for them to enter the ground from coach to turnstile. This area can also take a number of supporters’ cars, however we again ask those who are driving to arrive early. Cost will as usual be £1.
As the game is segregated, so are the bar facilities with home supporters occupying the Chase Suite and AFC Telford United followers having access to the Strikers Bar. No crossover between bars will be allowed and both bars will be stewarded.
All alcohol will be served in plastic glasses (including bottled drinks and soft drinks). No alcohol or drinks are allowed to be taken from the bars onto the stands or terracing and no alcohol is allowed to be brought into the ground via the turnstile access.
