Everything you need to know ahead of Saturday's game

10 December 2021

Following recent government updates, we have provided supporters with all they need to know ahead of Saturday's visit of Southend United.


  • Covid passports or any proof of vaccination will not be a requirement for entry this weekend. The National League expect to receive further guidance on this matter early next week and we will update supporters as necessary
  • In line with the new guidance, all supporters aged 11 and over should wear a face covering when in indoor areas such as concourses, club shop, hospitality areas and toilets, other than when eating or drinking, or where exempt
  • Face coverings are advised, though not required, to be worn by supporters when they are in their allocated seats
  • Out of respect to all fellow attendees and as part of a combined effort to keep everyone as safe as possible when visiting Meadow Lane, we advise you to take a lateral flow test prior to the match
  • Do not attend the stadium if you are showing any Covid symptoms or have come into recent contact with someone who has the virus. Our ticket office will be happy to process refunds should you be unable to attend due to Covid – please call 0115 955 210 before kick-off
  • Hand sanitiser stations will be available around the stadium
  • As part of our efforts to keep all supporters, players and staff safe, we kindly request that fans do not wait outside main reception after the game

Ticket office and club shop – open from 9am

  • Between 2pm–3pm, the ticket office will only be selling Southend tickets in order to manage queues Supporters wishing to purchase any other tickets can do so before 2pm or immediately after full-time
  • Should your ticket not scan at the turnstile, please visit the ticket office where our staff will be happy to help
  • Supporters purchasing a copy of our matchday programme, the Mag (£3), must do so with cash


  • Catering facilities will be available in each stand but, due to the nationwide shortage of hospitality staff, not all concourse kiosks will be open for this fixture. Where possible, we have replaced those enforced closures with additional mobile units
  • We ask you to please leave extra time if you’re planning to purchase any refreshments and to also be understanding and respectful to our staff

Supporter bars

  • The Broken Wheelbarrow will be open from 12pm, at half-time (for those in the Family Stand only) and again after the match
  • Due to ongoing maintenance, Lawton’s Bar in the Derek Pavis Stand regrettably remains closed. An update on its reopening will follow in due course
