If you, or anyone you associate with, have any COVID symptoms, don’t attend, don’t chance it. Follow the guidance and stay at home and get tested.

This weekend we welcome Poole Town FC to the Ray Mac.

This match is now SOLD OUT. There will be no tickets available on the gate.

Below is the update from that last match. It all still applies so no need for a fresh update. If you’ve not read it before, please do so.

We’re doing all we can to keep staff, players and spectators safe and stick to the rules.

We ask that anyone attending adheres to the guidance as we want to keep the gates open and our attendance limit of 600. Any breaches could see us playing with a reduced capacity or playing behind closed doors again!


We have hit our limit of 600 so we will be forced to turn anyone without a ticket away.


The turnstiles will be back in use for this weekend. Since the introduction of eTickets, entry to the ground has been fairly quick. We hope that a return to the turnstiles doesn’t change this. Please be patient and keep your distance while waiting. We’re still finalising plans but we think turnstiles A & B will be open at the home end and either E or F at the away end (not just for away fans). Tickets on the gate will only be available at turnstiles A or B (we will put a sign up).


In line with the latest guidance, we’re asking that masks be worn as you enter and move around the stadium. Once you’re in your place or seat you can remove it if you want.

Tea Huts

The tea hut at the home end is now able to accept card payments.

Test and Trace

Please have your NHS Test and Trace app ready to scan the QR code posters. They will be available as soon as you enter the stadium and also dotted around the ground. If there is someone using the posters as you come in, don’t linger, please find one of the other posters as soon as you can.

The Blue Bee Bar

You’ve probably seen that the rules around hospitality have been tightened a bit. We are now required to have table service. Drinks can still be taken into the stadium to be consumed on the terrace or in the seating area. When you enter the bar you can either find a vacant table and sit down or go to one of our take away tables.

Whichever option you choose, you must keep your distance and stick within your own bubble with a maximum of 6 people. Furniture in the bar must not be moved. If someone is sat at a table on their own, that is their bubble and you can’t join. Once at your table, your order will be taken and your drinks brought to you where you can also pay by card.

Credit/debit card is the preferred payment option in the bar now. Please try and use a card if possible.

Please be patient with our staff. You will be served as quickly as possible but this is another new system for them to deal with.

Other Info

You might be subject to a temperature check as you enter the stadium. It will only take a couple of seconds so please be understanding.

The home end of the main stand seating area is full with season ticket holders. There are no spare seats so no stand transfer is available in that area. There are plenty of seats on the far side of the pitch or in the other end of the main stand.

If you, or anyone you associate with, have any COVID symptoms, don’t attend, don’t chance it. Follow the guidance and stay at home and get tested.
