LISTEN: Dorset Police and Magpies Football Club Plan for FA Cup Clash


10:12am 31st October 2012
(Updated 10:15am 31st October 2012)

"Walk to the game or park away from the Avenue Stadium" - that's the message to footy fans ahead of this weekend’s FA Cup clash.

Dorchester Town face League Two giants Plymouth Argyle on Sunday (4th November) and the match is expected to be a sell-out, with the local stadium filled to the rafters at max capacity.

Dorset Police have been working closely with the Club to make sure everyone can enjoy the game safely.

Up to 2 thousand away fans are expected to descend on Dorchester bringing with them roughly 350 cars to the town centre.

They're being advised to park at the Fairfield’s Market car park, whilst Magpies supporters are being encouraged to walk to the game or park further away closer to Waitrose.

Although there's no concern over fan clashes, separate pubs have been named for supporters. Argyle fans who want a pre-game meal and drink are being encouraged to go to the Junction pub or Weatherspoons in town because they're bigger enough to accommodate larger numbers.

Dorchester Police Inspector Steve Marsh says it's going to be a great day for our local football team, he's been speaking to Wessex FM's Luke de Costa.
