Re: New strip

At 27 years with Errea, we're second in England and Wales only to Burton, who have their kits made by TAG, a Burton-based company, so that's a slightly unusual case. We are far and away the longest with a conventional manufacturer: https://www.kitbliss.co.nz/data/records/engwal-long-curr-continu-sup...

Re: Information for fans travelling to Stevenage on Saturday - Robins Trust

It wasn't scheduled to be all ticket, but I've seen elsewhere a suggestion that the initial allocation of 500 was sold out and the club were asking for more. It seems likely that 300 of those went after last night's match. The South Stand at the Lamex has a capacity of 1,390. Not sure about the park...
