Ilkeston FC’s prestigious pre-season friendly with Nottingham Forest on Saturday, July 12 will be all ticket for supporters.

Stuart Pearce takes over as Forest boss on July 1 and the match at the New Manor Ground is expected to be his first in charge of the Reds.

Robins general manager Nigel Harrop said: “It proved a very sound decision last season to make the Chelsea fixture all-ticket and we will adopt the same system.

“There will clearly be a lot of interest from Forest fans in what is likely to be Stuart Pearce’s first game in charge because no doubt they will have a number of new players involved.

“We have been assured they will send a full first-team squad and kick-off has been scheduled for 1pm at Forest’s request.”

Tickets for the fixture go on sale at the New Manor Ground at 10am on Tuesday, May 20 and prices have been set as follows: Main Stand: £15 (no concessions); Toyota Stand: £12 adults, £8 concessions; General Ground Admission: £10 adults, £5 seniors, £1 juniors under-16.

Anyone who purchased a season ticket before April 1, 2014 is entitled to one free ticket and should call IFC Ticket Hotline on May 20 on 0115 944 2111 to claim it.

Further prestigious friendlies are set to be announced by the Robins in due course.
