MARINE have today laid down plans on how they will minimise the threat of crowd trouble in their match with FC United of Manchester on Saturday, March 28.

The major steps taken by the Mariners, after consultation with Merseyside Police, are to make the game all-ticket and segregate the two sets of supporters.

The Arriva Stadium outfit have confirmed there will be a police presence inside and outside the ground.

Marine have been allocated 750 tickets whilst FC United have been handed 1,000 for the game which falls on an international weekend - no tickets will be on sale the day of the game.
