TADCASTER Albion manager Paul Quinn is looking forward to getting fans back into the Global Stadium for the first time since March.

Tomorrow (7.30pm), Quinn’s Brewers outfit are hosting a Selby Town side managed by former York City youngster Christian Fox, who was able to welcome Robins supporters for a pre-season win at the weekend.

Gates are set to open at 6.15pm and admission will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.

With it being a local affair, Taddy are also hosting a food bank collection at the game, in conjunction with Wharfe Bridge Nursery. The club suggests bringing tinned foods, tea, coffee, and pasta, as well as other long-lasting items.

“It’s a bit of a trial run. We’ll see how it goes. We’re really looking forward to getting supporters back in,” Quinn said.

“It’s the lifeblood of clubs up and down the country, and it’s especially important for non-league to get numbers through the gates.

“We’ve played a couple of games behind closed doors. The atmosphere at a full ground feels different.

“It’s a learning curve,” he added of the safety measures in place. “The players and staff have adjusted but having people around will be a test.”

The maximum capacity will be 200 fans, which Taddy are hopeful will increase to 400 until the end of September, when measures are to be reviewed.

Taddy are building towards their first scheduled competitive match, an FA Cup tie to take place on Saturday, September 12 at either Guisborough or Newton Aycliffe.

Roberts added of the tie: “We know how important that competition is for every non-league club.

“It’s a good benchmark to work towards.”
