Slough Town Football Club would like to draw the attention of supporters to the following matchday arrangements ahead of the Emirates FA Cup Second Round match against Gillingham on Sunday afternoon.
Regrettably, there will be no parking for supporters at Arbour Park or Lynch Hill Enterprise Academy (LHEA) on Sunday. Much of the normally available space will be occupied due to events taking place at LHEA and increased spaces we need to allocate to players, officials, guests and the significantly increased media presence.
Please note that parking permits are not valid for this match.
Our advice is to please use alternative forms of transport wherever possible to get to the match. If you do have to drive to the match, we are strongly advising supporters not to drive to Arbour Park and instead to park in one of the many public car parks which are a 15-minute walk to the ground.

There will be strictly no admission without a valid ticket.
The turnstiles will open from 12:30 and supporters of both clubs will be segregated. It is going to be very busy in and around the ground and we therefore advise that you aim to arrive at the ground at the very latest by 13:15 – so please allow ample time to get to the ground and take note of all the information below.
Any supporters found to be in a segregated area other than that permitted by their match ticket will be ejected.
Slough Town supporters will gain access to Arbour Park via the below turnstiles:
West side (including West Stand) – Turnstile 1 (north-west corner)
North side – Turnstile 2 (north-east corner)
South side – Turnstile 4 (south-west corner)

Our volunteers have been working very hard to put arrangements in place for this match ever since our penalty shootout victory against Sutton. Please bear with us!
Arbour Park ground regulations
Please be aware that searches of bags and coats will take place and anyone in possession of pyrotechnics or other objects such as flares, smoke bombs or bangers will be refused entry. Any anti-social behaviour will be taken very seriously and any acts of criminal damage or vandalism, including but not limited to the throwing of objects onto the pitch, will result in immediate ejection from the ground and prosecution. A full list of Arbour Park ground regulations may be found on our Official Website.
Food and drink
Food and drinks, as well as toilets, will be available in all segregated zone. Please note there will be no alcohol available in the South and North segregated zones.
The bar in the West Stand will be open for Slough Town supporters with valid tickets for the West side of the ground, but please be aware that this game is being played under FA Rules and Conditions which means that the bar will stop serving alcoholic drinks at 13:45 and all alcoholic drinks must be consumed prior to kick-off. It is envisaged that this bar may become very busy and because of the FA Ruling you may not get served. This is a difficult situation, but we hope everyone can see the predicament and will work with us.
Arbour Park is a non-smoking facility with no smoking (or vaping) allowed anywhere within the ground. Smokers are required to leave the facility and make their way to the dedicated smoking areas located outside the relevant turnstiles. Hand-stamping will take place to enable re-entry.
All seats in the West Stand have been sold and seats must only be occupied by people in possession of a valid seat voucher bearing that seat number. No seats are unreserved. Please be considerate and only sit in the seat allocated to you.
