Final day kick offs moved

18 January 2017

Mansfield match to start at 5.30pm

Our home game with Mansfield Town on the final day of the season - Saturday May 6 - will now kick off at 5.30pm along with all the other games in Sky Bet EFL 2.

This is to allow Sky Sports to televise one of the final-day fixtures and ensure all clubs kick off at the same time.
John Nixon, League Two’s representative on the EFL Board, said: “The final day of the regular season is always a tense and dramatic day for all supporters whether you are sitting in the stands or watching on TV.
“The change means more and more football fans up and down the country will now be able to see the season finale and witness first-hand the contribution League Two clubs have made to another fantastic campaign in the EFL.”
He added: “It is also important that we are able to notify supporters of this change well in advance to allow plenty of time for any alterations to travel plans that may be required.”
