INTERVIEW: Lancaster City host Hyde United on Non League Day

Lancaster City are hoping fans will pack into Giant Axe for Non League Day

Lancaster City will host Hyde United at what promises to be a packed Giant Axe on Non League Day.

The club want to get as many fans through the turnstiles as possible and are reducing ticket prices for this game. Ticket prices are reduced to £5 for adults, with concessions, students and young adult prices at £3 and under 14s going free with a paying adult.

Before the game, Cat Smith MP will unveil a plaque, on behalf of Lancaster Civic Society, to honour former Lancaster City Ladies player and Dick, Kerr Ladies legend Jennie Harris.

Supporters are encouraged to arrive as early as possible to the game to see the plaque’s unveiling and to alleviate queues.

Lancaster City are currently top of the NPL Premier Division form table heading into this game after a recent upturn in results.

The Dollies had strung together three home victories in a row before losing 2-1 at Nantwich Town, but a 2-1 win away to Belper Town last weekend, their first three points on the road since November, got them back on track.

They are 11th in the league but have the chance to move into the top ten, a target Mark Fell set his players a few weeks ago, if the side currently occupying tenth place, FC United of Manchester, get an inferior result.

Hyde United, meanwhile, sit in third. Their last two matches have been against the two sides above them in the league: Radcliffe and South Shields - they were beaten 1-0 in both games.

Before their 1-0 defeat at Radcliffe, the Tigers had not lost away from home in the league since October 18.

These two teams met in November at Hyde’s Project Solar Stadium and the Dollies came out 2-1 victors thanks to goals from Dom Lawson and Nic Evangelinos.

Lancaster City announced on Thursday afternoon that on-loan Sunderland attacker Owen Robinson, who scored City's first goal at Belper Town last Saturday, will stay at the club until the end of the season - his original deal only lasted a month. 

City v Hyde United gets  under way at 3pm on Saturday (March 25) at Giant Axe.
