Scarborough Athletic are hoping for a bumper Bank Holiday crowd this Easter Monday for the crucial North Yorkshire derby clash with Tadcaster Albion (3pm KO) as they aim to continue their strong challenge to secure a play-off berth.
The game will have added historical significance as it is the last regular home league game at their temporary Bridlington base before the eagerly anticipated return to Scarborough next season.
As part of the special occasion, a limited number of fans will be able to own their own little piece of history with a special souvenir ticket being printed for the fixture.
A number of important figures from Boro’s recent past will also be attending the game as guests of the club to meet with fans and friends as it celebrates and potentially bids farewell to what has been a critical part of its history.
Looking to the future, the game will also be another chance for Scarborough Athletic supporters to secure tickets for the first ever match at the new Leisure Village to witness the start of a new chapter in Scarborough football history.
Chairman Trevor Bull commented: “Ticket sales for the first game are surpassing all expectations with around 1000 sold already. I would encourage people to get their tickets as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. Monday will also be a significant game in the club’s history and has the added ingredients of being a local derby and critical to our play-off hopes. I hope there will be a large crowd to see Boro sign off league football at Queensgate in style.”
