Gresley Rovers’ home leg of their FA Vase semi-final against Littlehampton Town has been made all-ticket with a Moat Ground capacity of 2,100.
Rovers hope to have tickets for the biggest game in their history on sale for the first time at next Wednesday’s Derbyshire Senior Cup semi-final against Matlock Town.

And the good news for the fans is that the admission charge has been pegged to the competition minimum of £2.

Chairman Peter Hall said today: “We wanted to keep the price down as an act of faith towards our supporters who have been marvellous during this Vase run.”

Littlehampton have claimed their full allocation of 400 tickets, which includes 66 seats.

Rovers have another meeting tonight at which they hope to finalise plans for a souvenir programme and match sponsorship.

Gresley officials have also to meet Swadlincote police to discuss arrangements for the game.

Rovers stage the opening leg on March 16th with the return in Sussex on March 23rd.
