Latest ticket & match-day news for Jersey v Doncaster12/04/2013
Tickets for the Jersey v Doncaster game will remain on sale today (Saturday = match-day). Sales have been buoyant, well ahead of any other game so far this season, but there remains plentiful availability.
Ticket sales on Saturday will be at JRFC only, from 12noon - no
tickets will be sold during Saturday morning. There will still be a
good number available on Saturday, but we are encouraging people to
turn up in good time.
Please allow plenty of time to get to St Peter. Anyone with a 'normal' match-day routine should be aware that this isn't a normal match, so JRFC suggests you adapt accordingly! The following points may help plan your day:
* Gates open from 12noon - the club won't be open before this time
* Car parking: there will be plentiful car parking on pitches two and three, accessed from Jersey Bowl. Please allow extra time for your journey, and follow the instructions from stewards. The pitches could be muddy if the weather is wet
* Buses: no hassle with parking, no worries about being tempted to drive after having a couple of pints - why not come by bus? There will be duplicate services on the number 9 Greve de Lecq route which runs to JRFC, and regular services on route 15 to the airport (get off at the penultimate 'Mermaid' stop). Coming from the east of the Island? There's a £2 'through-fare' covering two journeys, saving £1.40 on the normal price. For details see THIS LINK
* Food & drink. Bars and other outlets will open from 12noon. There will be an additional marquee bar in the club car-park. Additional beer stocks have been ordered and real ale will be available in the clubhouse and the Sin-Bin bar at the west end of the ground, as well as in the Pavilion
* The Club Shop will be open from 12noon to 5.45pm - there is a 10% discount on all stock, with replica shirts slashed by 15%, and many other special offers
* Jersey Colts will be playing their counterparts from Consett, County Durham, after the 1st XV game on pitch 1 (kick-off approx 5.30pm)
* There will be a bucket collection for Jersey Women's Refuge, who will also be selling the 'Real Man' t-shirts as promoted by Jersey players
See you tomorrow!
