Consett to produce special ‘lockout edition’ programme for FA Vase game v Maltby Main – here’s how to get yours

Consett might not be allowed any supporters at our FA Vase game against Maltby Main this weekend – but that won’t stop us producing a matchday programme!

The North East and South Yorkshire will both be subject to Tier Three Covid-19 restrictions once the current national lockdown ends at midnight on Tuesday 2 December.

This means our FA Vase 2nd Round game on Saturday 5 December must be played behind closed doors, with neither club allowed to have spectators present.

We know that many fans enjoy reading our matchday programme, with some keen to get a full set for the season, so we will be producing a special ‘lockout edition’ for the game.

However, in a departure from the norm, we will be taking pre-orders only, and only printing as many as we need.

The full-size 32pp programme will cost £3 including postage and packing, and anyone who wants one should pre-order a copy before 8.30pm on Thursday 3 December.

Payments should be made via PayPal, and sent to consettafc@live.co.uk.
