Ticket info for Jersey v Doncaster09/04/2013
Jersey RFC is gearing up for one of the biggest matches in the club's history.
Saturday's encounter with Doncaster Knights sees the bottom two sides in the RFU Championship play against each other. A win for 11th-placed Jersey is likely to consign the Knights to relegation, but the visitors from Yorkshire know that they can take the issue into a nerve-jangling final week should they achieve victory at St Peter.
It goes without saying, but we'll say it anyway, that Jersey are looking for a huge crowd to get behind the Island side at St Peter. The team's first season in the Championship, among the top 24 clubs in the English rugby pyramid, has been a tough one, but Jersey's competitiveness has increased as the season has progressed. There is genuine optimism about becoming established in the Championship in 2013/14 - if Jersey's current league status can be maintained.
Tickets for the big game are now available, priced £15. A concession rate of £3 is available for juniors aged 13-16 inclusive, or for full-time students on production of appropriate ID. Tickets can be purchased from the club every week-day this week between 9am and 2pm, and on additionally on Friday evening between 5pm and 7.30pm. Tickets are also available from the JEP offices at Five Oaks between 8.30am and 5pm Monday-Friday, and in St Helier from Red Properties on the Esplanade (opposite Liberation Bus Station) between 9am and 5pm Monday-Friday.
Tickets will continue to be sold on the day of the game, from 12noon, subject to availability, however the club is encouraging spectators to buy in advance to avoid likely queues on match-day.
Extra measures are being taken at St Peter to accommodate a bumper crowd. This includes extra bus services to the ground, additional car parking, and a temporary marquee bar in the club car park. Further details will be published later in the week.
