Car Parking at the Keepmoat for Doncaster AC Members Only

All cars parking at the carparks at the Keepmoat Stadium must be registered with us at the cabin.  This includes cars dropping people off.  Automatic Number Plate Recognition cameras are now installed on some of the site and these are expected to be rolled out to the other car parks.  Avoid car park 1.

When the Doncaster Rovers, Doncaster Bells or the Dons are at home, and this clashes with any training session, members must use car park 3, we have a limited number of spaces (60).  At other times members can use Car Parks 3 and 2.  Car Park 1 is not recommended for use as this is the VIP car park.

If you cannot get down to register your number plate you can telephone the club on 07377899083, on Tuesdays and Thursdays 5pm until 7:30pm.

The below list is a guide, fixtures change and it only includes mid week home matches:

Rovers:

Tuesday 31 October
Tuesday 21 November

Bells:
Thursday 16 November
Wednesday 6 December

South Yorkshire Cross Country League – 29 October – Kimberworth

Numbers are still available at the cabin for £8.  Its not to late to take part in the club cross country championship, you need to compete in 3 out of the 4 fixtures including the last one so please take part!  Please get your number Tuesday or Thursday so your names can be declared to the organisers.  Its a great course this one!

If you have not got a club vest please get one from the cabin.

Information sent through from the organisers “There may be slight amendments to the courses following an inspection of the area this week.  U17 Men / Seniors / Vets need to be aware that the Large lap has a tarmac road crossing, if they have not run here before. This may affect the choice of footwear.  Also, please note that the U15 Boys and U17 Ladies will race together. This is because the lap lengths make it difficult to combine the U17 ladies and Senior Ladies in the same race.”

Check out the SYCAA website for further information.
