Reduced FA Cup Admission for Town Fans at Walsham
Tuesday, 13th Aug 2013 10:14
Thurlow Nunn Premier Division Walsham-le-Willows are offering Town season ticket holders £1 off admission to their FA Cup extra preliminary round tie against Essex Senior League side Tower Hamlets at Summer Road on Saturday (KO 3pm).
The Willows’ assistant manager, former Cambridge United striker John Taylor, is a man with FA Cup pedigree having reached the quarter-finals on two occasions.
He said: “Having been a losing quarter-finalist twice, the expression on players' faces when you lose really tells you what it means to them.
“The prize money, if you are fortunate to win a couple of matches, can make a real difference to the season as football clubs at this level always struggle to make ends meet.
“We look forward to hosting Tower Hamlets FC and it is an opportunity to make new friends in the football community.”
Former Blue Gavin Johnson, scorer of a famous Town FA Cup goal at Anfield in the 1991/92 season, is still playing for the Willows, now aged 42.
In addition to watching the first step on the long road to Wembley, pre-match entertainment will be provided by Walsham’s U11s taking on their Elmswell counterparts and the introduction of Rhode Island Red, the club’s new chicken mascot, as well as a bouncy castle for children.
Admission prices for Saturday’s game are £6 for adults and £4 concessions, reduced by £1 on presentation of your Town season ticket. Under-16s get in for free with a paying adult.

Politics and Ipswich Town by ElephantintheRoom
You might just have noticed that the TWTD Forum is awash with political comment. Annoying for some perhaps, who only want to discuss Norwood’s fitness – but surely no bad thing, given the stark choices facing us at a critical time in the country’s history?
The Story Behind the Billy Kee Banner by ThatMuhrenCross
Sunday's defeat to Accrington Stanley was the first real low point of what has been a fantastic season following Ipswich Town. The performance on the field was nowhere near the standards we'd expect of a team that was flying high at the top of the table.
History Boys and Renaissance Men by Stowmarket
How many of us who were fortunate enough to have followed ITFC back in 1980 realised at the time that we were indeed blessed to be around to witness the greatest ever Ipswich Town side?
Round Three: Eagle by Kropotkin123
Par was set at five points from one win and two draws. We managed to get a haul of seven points, which means we were two under par. Google promises me that this is an eagle.
