Tickets on general sale now for Consett’s first home league game of the season v Newcastle Benfield

Tickets have today gone on general sale for Consett’s next home game, the Northern League Division One fixture against Newcastle Benfield on Saturday, 19 September.

The 3pm kick-off is our first home league match of 2020-21, and season ticket holders need do nothing, as it’s the first game covered by their pass.

Supporters who don’t have a season ticket are encouraged to buy a virtual ticket in advance, as our capacity for the game remains set at 300, and we can’t guarantee admission on the day.

Track and trace details must be supplied by anyone attending the game, and temperature checks will be carried out at the turnstiles as part of the club’s Covid-19 risk assessment.

Tickets are £7 for adults, £5 for concessions, and £2 for under-16s. They are available in person at the club, or by calling 01207 588886, between 10am-10pm.

The game will see Consett’s Dale Pearson, pictured top, Luke Carr and Jake Orrell facing their old club, while Benfield include ex-Steelman Richie Slaughter in their ranks.

Ticket details for the FA Cup 1st Qualifying Round game versus Stockton Town on Tuesday 22 September will be announced tomorrow.
