Parking will be free but a collection will be made in the car park and ground for the Royal Anglian Benevolent Charity, for families and soldiers injured in the line of duty. The club will also be making a donation, the presentation to be made at the first league home game.

Will all Gorleston supporters please note that the friendly originally scheduled for Emerald Park tomorrow has now been switched to Dereham to protect the pitch ahead of the Norwich game.
