Thatto Heath have reached an agreement with Dewsbury to cap ticket prices at just £5 for their Challenge Cup round five tie on Sunday.

The Crusaders, who are the only amateur side left in the historic Cup competition, take on Championship outfit Dewsbury in round five of the 2019 Challenge Cup at Crusader Park on Sunday, 3pm kick-off.

Thatto Heath, who are based in St Helens, have caped entrance fees at just £5 for adults and £2 for concessions, just like they did in their win over semi-professional club North Wales Crusaders in round four.

Crusaders chairman Mike Denning commented: “In discussions with Dewsbury Rams, we have been agreeing entry fees for round five of the Coral Challenge Cup amongst other operational matters.

“Quite understandably, a Championship side playing against a community club have greater expenses with semi-professional players.

“As a club, we have taken the view that we want to reward our loyal fans for all of their support and have agreed a financial arrangement with Dewsbury Rams to enable us to fix the entrance fees at £5 and £2 as per the last round.

“We hope that in doing this it will encourage more rugby fans across the town to attend this historic game and give Thatto Heath Crusaders all of your support.

“We look forward to welcoming you all to Crusader Park on Sunday.”
