FANS will be allowed to watch a football match in Northwich again for the first time since March.

Amended Government guidance relating to spectators at football matches at North West Counties Football League level allows for the gradual return of spectators at matches and Wincham Park is deemed ready to meet all protocols and provide a stage for fans to watch Northwich Victoria host Prestwich Heys in a pre-season friendly tomorrow night, Wednesday, kick-off 7.45pm.

The game has been switched from tonight due to the persistent wet weather.

Vics chairman Brian Turner says in a club statement: "Under the National League System guidance we will be limited to a capacity of 150 spectators for this match and it is also very important that fans play their part by ensuring that they follow the social distancing measures that will be in place and in assisting supporting the NHS Test and Trace measures for spectators."

Fans will need to sign in and provide contact details while also making use of the hand sanitiser provided at Wincham Park, Witton Albion's ground that Vics share as tenants.

Supporters should enter the ground at the car-park end and admission is set at £5 for adults and £2 for under 16s.

Turner added: "We are hoping to have a card payment system in use, but this is yet to be confirmed, so please have the correct money available otherwise.

"The social club will not be open before or during this match, however, our snack bar will be open for hot and cold drinks along with hot food.

"We are looking forward to meeting both new and familiar faces."

Vics go into the game on the back of a 3-0 victory over higher-league Witton Albion at the weekend.

Goals came from Ash Woods (15mins), Dom Marie (76) and Oscar Durnin (89).
