POLICE in Cheshire have repeated Northwich Victoria’s warning that supporters should buy tickets for Saturday’s crunch FA Cup clash against FC United of Manchester before match day.

They say they expect the fourth qualifying round fixture to be a sell out.

“We advise fans to buy their tickets for Saturday’s match in advance as a large crowd is expected,” read a statement issued today, Thursday.

“The match is all-ticket and a capacity crowd is expected.

“Supporters are being asked to arrive in plenty of time to avoid unnecessary delays at the gate.”

Vics owner Jim Rushe has told the Guardian that all the turnstiles at the Victoria Stadium will be open, while extra staff will be working in the ticket office.

It opens on Saturday at 10am.

The club has also advised that extra parking spaces will be available at the New Cheshire Salt Works business park off Wincham Avenue.

The record crowd at the Victoria Stadium is the 3,154 that watched the hosts beat Stafford Rangers to win the Conference North title in April 2006.
