Venue switch sees Reserves return to former home

Posted by nickogs20 on October 29, 2008

BoltonUnited’s home Manchester Senior Cup tie against Bolton Wanderers tomorrow evening (Thursday) has been switched from the reserves’ usual home at Northwich Victoria’s Marstons Arena to their home from a few seasons ago, Altrincham FC’s Moss Lane.

Moss Lane played host to the Reds’ second string between 2002 and 2005 and was the scene of some great success towards the end of that period as the reserves racked up the silverware under the guidance of Rene Meulensteen. More recently, the reserves won 3-0 in a pre-season friendly against Altrincham back in July of this year, a game that was unfortunately marred by crowd trouble and abandoned shortly before full-time.

Anyone planning to go and watch this game who maybe hasn’t been to Moss Lane before will be pleased to hear the ground is a lot easier to get to than the Marstons Arena, pretty much regardless of the method of transport you’re using – all relevant information can be found here. Admission tomorrow night is £5 adults, £2 concessions and free to all United season ticket holders and OneUnited members on production of their access/membership cards.

We’ll have the team news as soon as it’s made available tomorrow and a full match report later in the evening.
