Cash turnstiles to be trialed by Vale

Port Vale will trial three cash turnstiles for the FA Cup game against Maidenhead United on Sunday.

The lack of cash turnstiles has been an issue for some fans who feel that buying tickets from the ticket office then returning to the turnstiles is an inconvenience.

On Sunday we will have cash turnstiles . If I don’t see an improvement on what we estimate to be the gate on Sunday I won’t do it again…

On Sunday there will be one cash turnstile open on the Lorne St, Railway Paddock and Bycars stand but the club have warned that it will be for the exact amount only.

Chairman Norman Smurthwaite says the cash turnstiles are operating on a trial basis and he will consider the attendance before deciding whether to allow fans to pay cash in future games.

He told BBC Radio Stoke: “On Sunday we will have cash turnstiles . If I don’t see an improvement on what we estimate to be the gate on Sunday I won’t do it again.”

Admittance to Sunday’s game is £12 for adults and £6 for concessions.
