Halesowen Town v Stourbridge 6th January 2024

The number 9 Derby has always been one of the most supported and anticipated local derbies in non-league football.

​During recent times these games have been tarnished with anti-social behaviour by some sections of the crowd.

​However, the No.9 Derby played at the War Memorial Stadium in September showed this fixture in the light it should be supported.

On Saturday 6th January 2024 we face each other once more at the Grove.

​In conjunction with the West Midlands Police both clubs have determined the following course of action.  West Midlands Police will be present at the game, and undercover ‘spotters’ will also be in the Ground on the day of the game.

​The game will be segregated and will be all ticket for both sets of fans, there will be no entry without a match ticket or a Yeltz full or flexi season ticket.

​Stourbridge fans will be housed in the Stourbridge Road end of the ground with access via the turnstiles at that end, next to the King Edward pub. (see picture 1)

​Food, drink and toilet facilities will be housed at that end of the ground.

​Yeltz fans will gain access to the Grove via the Old Hawne Lane end of the ground (see picture 2)

Turnstiles at the Old Hawne Lane end of the ground will open at 12.30pm.

Stourbridge Road End turnstiles will be open from 1pm

If anyone entering the Stourbridge Road end and needs to sit in the Harry Rudge stand please make your way to that side of the ground where a steward will assist you.

​13-17yr olds will only be admitted into the ground on their own if they have a Yeltz ID card to support their ticket or are a Yeltz full or flexi season ticket holder. any other 13-17yr olds attending will only be allowed entry when accompanied by an adult. These rules are in place for supporters of both Clubs.

​There will be no tickets available from the Turnstiles at the Grove before the game.

​Please allow more time to pass through the turnstiles as there will be personal and bag searches in operation.

Please ensure you familiarise yourself with Halesowen Town Football Club’s ground regulations before purchasing you ticket.

​Everyone deserves to watch a game of football without fear of injury or intimidation.  Both Clubs will support any prosecution for any anti-social behaviour occurring at the game. 

​Let’s all enjoy the No.9 Derby in the spirit it’s meant to be.

​Up The Yeltz
