FANS will finally be back at Derwent Park in Sunday’s game versus Doncaster – for the first time since before the outbreak of Covid-19.

Workington Town take on Doncaster RLFC at the Derwent Park ground, welcoming fans back to the stadium.

Town were given the go ahead by the local authority and will implement Covid-19 regulations in order to bring fans into the stands. Matches have been taking place behind closed doors until this week as restrictions were still in place but with the vaccination programme continuing to roll-on, it is time for spectators to return.

Covid-19 restrictions mean that access to the game will be ticketed only, and there will be no tickets available on the gate.

A spokesperson for the Workington club said: “Due to restrictions out of our control, alcohol can only be served to seats so there will be no drinking in the standing areas.

“On top of grandstand seats availability, which are released tomorrow, we also have a limited number of picnic benches situated on the Town End for groups of six to watch the game which can be purchased now. These tables will receive table service from the popular side bar kindly sponsored by Cider Pete.”

Seats in the grandstand are limited due to social distancing requirements and are on sale this morning from 10.30am.

Season ticket holders and 1945 Club members will be able to book so that their friends and family are seated next to them.

Workington Town are unbeaten in League 1 so far having topped North Wales Crusaders, London Skolars and Hunslet in their first three competitive games.

Workington Town said: “We can’t wait to see everyone and it’s going to be emotional.

“Throughout the shutdown of the sport we have been overwhelmed with how the fans have rallied to help us through such a difficult time.

“It’s been great to be back for the first three matches but sport is nothing without fans. We have the most passionate fans around and we’re looking forward to sharing all of the ups and downs of sport with them.

“We would ask them to be patient as Sunday will be very different to what we’re used to and we’re all in this together. See you Sunday!”
