The club is preparing to launch a Family Stand ahead of the 2019/20 season.

The facility will be housed within the Northern Commercials Stadium’s North West Corner.

This comes following an EFL Family Excellence Survey, which identified areas for improvement.

Following consultation with the Supporters’ Board and various fan groups, a decision has been taken to provide families with a designated seating area.

A club spokesperson said: “EFL representatives attended games against Charlton and Fleetwood last season and we were marked down in the summary report as we do not have a designated Family Stand, which visitors can clearly identify as being family friendly.

“This was a key reason why the club failed to attain the Family Excellence Award, being one of only nine clubs in the EFL who didn't meet the standard.

“We have taken action to address this and the new Family Stand will be situated in the North West Corner, which is already occupied by a number of families and school children.

“The lower tier will primarily be used for families, while match-by-match spectators and those entering as part of community initiatives will be able to sit in the top tier.”

As a result of this announcement, the club is now giving supporters wishing to move into the new Family Stand, or away from it, until Friday May 31 (5.00pm) to re-locate FREE of charge.
