The last of the 360 available to home fans went today while 40 have been allocated for Marske fans to complete the 400 ceiling at Borough Park.

Director Phil Norman said: “There’s no doubt that if we were allowed we could have sold 600,but that’s just what we can do at the moment.

“Visiting clubs are offered 60 but Marske asked for 40 and if they aren’t all taken-up they will be made available to our fans as soon as we know.”

Marske are expected to provide stiff opposition, being regarded pre-season as one of the sides most likely to compete with the Reds for the title.

Former Reds striker Matty Tymon joined Marske in the summer from Whitby Town and has had a stunning start with seven goals, making him the top scorer in the Division.

But Marske came a cropper on Saturday when they lost 5-1 at Brof four straight defeats.ackley in the FA Cup after Tymon had given them a fifth minute lead.

They should have played tonight at home to Widnes but the game had to be postponed -not through any Covid restrictions, not because the pitch was waterlogged but a cherry-picker had got stuck on the pitch while it was doing floodlight repairs, and couldn’t be moved.

But Marske is not of immediate importance to Reds boss Danny Grainger and his players – who have an FA Trophy trip to Glossop North End to ponder.

The hosts lost 5-0 at Lincoln United on Saturday in an NPL South East Division game and right after it was announced that centre-forward Kyle Hawley, who had done well in his loan spell, had been recalled by Stalybridge Celtic.

North End have shipped 17 goals in four away games and have been tighter at home but it’s the inconsistency which has been troubling the management duo of Pete Band and Andy Harris.

They have won two, drawn two and lost only once at home and just conceded four goals -- quite a contrast to their away record.
