To help visitors to Hayden Road, here is information as what to expect as we operate and steward strictly under COVID-19 regulations and guidelines.

On arrival at the ground you will find our main turnstiles on Hayden Road.
    Stewards will ensure social distancing is maintained in queues to enter the ground.
You may be temperature checked before entry – this is precautionary – no personal records are kept.
Programmes (priced £2.50) and Raffle Tickets will be on sale to your left on entry. Cash only but please note no      change can be given.
We operate a one-way system around the ground from the main turnstiles. You must turn right on entry following the      directional signs.
External Toilets are on the right soon after you join the one-way system. Toilets are also available in the Club House at      the other end of the ground.
 FIVE Minutes after Kick Off, we will permit two-way traffic between the Dug Outs (cricket side) and the Peter de Banke      Exit gate. The rest of the ground remains oneway.
Spectators will be permitted to exit the Peter de Banke exit gate and walk down to the Turnstile exit gate to return into      the stadium to re-join the one-way system. This allows spectators to use the external toilets. No readmittance will be      permitted if spectators leave the designated route for any reason.
The clubhouse including internal toilets from the Peter de Banke end should be accessed using the one-way system.
Please note:
        o No unauthorised entry in the red zone other than walking route in front of the Main Stand.
        o The Peter De Banke is restricted to standing at the barrier – the steps are out of use.
        o Seating stands have restricted use, with rows marked when not in use including gang way seats.
        o Terracing will either be marked with blue paint at 1m intervals to signify in use or steps marked in red when not in             use. This is to maintain social distancing.
        o No standing in any areas marked in yellow (on barrier or floor).
A Burger Food stall will be open at the Peter de Banke End. Dales Bar will also be open for hot drinks. The Club Shop is     closed for the time being.
We are trying to remain cashless as far as possible or take mitigating steps as necessary. Please be aware of the      following:
