Spennymoor Town’s game with Darlington later this month will be all-ticket with the same arrangements in place as when the teams met at the Brewery Field during the 2012-13 season.

Ticket details were announced today for the fixture, the second game of the Evo-Stik First Division North and taking place on Tuesday, August 19 (7.45pm).

Town say their ground will be segregated in the same way as fixture in February of last year, which was attended by 2,500 people when Darlington won 3-1 and played a pivotal role in clinching the Northern League title.

Darlington fans will access the ground through the Tees Crescent gates while Spennymoor supporters will access the ground through the Wood Vue turnstiles as normal.

However, as the clubs could not come to an agreement over selling the tickets, they will only be available from Spennymoor’s club shop. They go on sale from 3pm tomorrow.

A statement released by Quakers read: "Darlington Football Club wish to add for clarity, that due to the club being unable to agree to Spennymoor’s terms, match tickets for this game will not be available for purchase from DFC or Quaker Retail."

The situation means that Darlington fans wishing to attend the match must purchase their ticket from the Brewey Field.

Tickets are £8 adults, £5 concessions (over 60) and £3 for under 16s.

There are no limits on the amount of tickets that can be bought at any one time. There will be no reservations on seats in the main stand for Spennymoor fans it will be on first come first served basis.

Spennymoor Town director of operations, Steve Lawson said: “There is segregation in place and spectators must enter the ground which is stipulated on their ticket – Wood Vue for Spennymoor fans and Tees Crescent for Darlington fans.

“Extra parking provisions have been made but it is still limited and everyone is encouraged to use public transport, taxis and group up as much as possible. If you are bringing the car then we recommend that you use the Town Hall and the Kingfisher car parks both of which are just a short walk from the ground. We would like ask all fans to respect the surrounding areas and show consideration to neighbouring residents.”

Tickets are available from Spennymoor at the following times:

Saturday, August 2: 3pm-5pm Monday, August 4: 6.30pm-9.30pm Wednesday, August 6: 6-8pm Saturday, August 9: 1.30pm-5pm Monday, August 11: 6-8pm Wednesday, August 13: 6.30-9.30pm
