Stourbridge v Halesowen Town 12th September 2023

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.

On Tuesday 12th September we face each other once more at the War Memorial Ground, the first league meeting for a number of years.

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 night of the game.

The game will be segregated and will be all ticket for both sets of fans.  Each Clubs’ supporters will be stewarded by their own regular match day stewards.

Yeltz fans will be housed in the whole of the shed end of the ground with access via the turnstiles under the arch.

Refreshment and toilet facilities will be housed at that end of the ground with the bar in the cricket pavilion being in use.

Tickets are now on general sale at the Grove on Tuesday 5th September from 2pm until 8pm.


Ticket prices will be as follows:

Adults £12

Concessions £9 (65+)

12-17 years £7 (accompanied by an adult)

U-12 £2 (accompanied by an adult)

each adult can purchase 2 adult tickets, tickets will not be on sale to anyone U-18 only adults can purchase tickets up to a maximum of 3 U-18 tickets.

Yeltz tickets will be available to purchase from the Grove on the dates and times shown above and will not be available online.

Turnstiles will open at 6.15pm on the day of the game.

Any U-18 turning up at the game unaccompanied by the adult who purchased the ticket, will be refused entry and no refunds will be provided.  These rules are in place for supporters of both Clubs.

There will be no tickets available from the Turnstiles at the War Memorial Ground before the game, and none on sale after 1pm on the day of the game

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

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.
