Town vs Avro
It has been too long. Far too long. 162 days in fact since the last time we were able to cheer on the Town but tomorrow – the wait is over.
A place once brimming with blue and white was faded dull by these bewildering set of circumstances. However, this historic ground will be teeming with life once more.
The blue gates of Ericstan Park will blow the cobwebs off as fans are finally able to enter again and Wythenshawe Town will welcome everyone with (socially distanced) open arms.
Manager James Kinsey has been eager to get fans safely back in the fold and is raring to face the very different set of challenges he has been used to.
“With the recent situation I think it is important for all non-league clubs to get people back through the gates.
“People have been working hard to get things ready for our first game back on Monday night. We are limited to 150, but if we get that right we can double that from games in September.”
With the interest of Town growing exponentially, there will undoubtedly be some disappointment for people who aren’t able to be admitted but we can assure you that we will be doing everything in our power to make sure that the maximum entrants be safely increased.
“We were getting very good numbers through the gate before the lockdown and I hope that continues. We’re hoping for another successful year on the pitch and I hope that people can continue to back us like they did last season. They played a huge part in our success. It’s appreciated.”
Tomorrow night Avro FC make the short trip to south Manchester for what is billed to be an enthralling encounter, with both outfits gunning for promotion in their respective leagues, now is the time show their metal.
“Avro are a top side. They’ll be a good test for us and it will give us an indication of where we are at. It should be a great game.”
Town have had a solid and at times scintillating start to preseason, winning three out of four so far with two consecutive 4-1 victories standing us in good stead entering this latest test.
We hope to see as many of you there as possible and we can’t wait to have your incredible support here with us. We have missed you.
