Derby kicks off loyalty points bonus scheme

There's another derby on the horizon! This time it's the Elite Development Squad battling to keep the Blue flag flying high - and you can do yourself an extra favour by being there at Hyde to cheer them home.

Tuesday night's reserve derby will be an opportunity for the young Blues to gain revenge for their Manchester Senior Cup defeat in August and extend a 100 per cent home record in the Premier Reserve League North A.

It's also an opportunity for supporters to bank extra loyalty points as well as backing the boys to go one better than the first team's honours-even goalless draw in the City of Manchester Stadium derby.

Starting with the November 23 derby, five loyalty points will be awarded for purchase and attendance at EDS games.

You can buy tickets in advance at the Stadium Box Office and also buy at the cash turnstile on the evening of the game. However  in order to get the five loyalty points, you must present your valid 2010/11 membership card (Seasoncard / Citycard / Accesscard  /Live4City card) at the turnstile on the night of the game.

Prices are £3 for adults and £1 for under-16s and over-65s. Loyalty points will be allocated within three working days following the fixture.

Tickets are also available for the re-arranged home clash with Liverpool on November 30, with the same loyalty points system in place.

But first it's the derby, and EDS manager Andy Welsh says: "The more fans who can make it, the better. The lads have really settled in at Hyde and they appreciate the support they're getting, so it can be a special night."
