To mark our first ever home Emirates FA Cup tie, against Arundel FC at 15:00 on Saturday 20 August, the Club are delighted to formally announce that...
AN IDENTICAL REPLICA OF THE FA CUP WILL BE COMING TO PLAISTOW ROAD
Yes, with thanks to the co-operation of The Football Association, and due to the understandably tight security around the actual trophy, an identical replica of that awarded to the winners of the world's oldest football cup competition will be at the ground.
Those in attendance will have the extraordinary opportunity to arrange to have their photo taken with the cup from 13:30, before the main event kicks off at 15:00 when The Magpies and The Martlets will be battling it out in what is sure to be a keenly contested match from which the victors will advance to the main qualifying stages of the competition.
You will have the chance to take your own pictures, so make sure you bring your camera!!
This momentous occasion will also serve to mark the formal launch of the new look Loxwood Youth FC, now incorporating nine new teams for the 2016/17 season previously playing under the banner of Kirdford Junior Football Club. These teams cover 7 age groups from U7s through to U13s.
The Youth Section will provide 22 mascots from our U8, U9 and U10 teams to accompany the Senior players from both teams onto the pitch before the start of the match adding even more pomp and circumstance to the occasion.
FREE ADMISSION FOR U16s
Admission to the ground for this historic event will be £6 for adults, £5 for seniors and anyone U16 will get in for free. These prices include the photo opportunity and with demand expected to be high the Club advise arriving early to ensure that you don't miss out.
We look forward to welcoming you to Plaistow Road.
