The Ridge are one of seven matches to be selected for the North West Counties groundhopping day for 2024

Longridge Town vs Padiham at the Recycling Lives Ground will now kick off at 11am on Saturday 2nd March 2024.

We will feature as the first match of Saturday.

Due to this, a larger crowd is now expected so be sure to be a part of it on Saturday morning.

We will be selling matchday programmes as usual as well as hats, pin badges etc.

We will also be serving bacon butties to people who make the trip, first come first serve.

As the game is on a Saturday, we will also be continuing our pound for the ground fundraiser campaign.

You can enter for just £1 per ticket and be in with a chance of winning up to £200 depending on how many people enter.

40% of the winnings go to the name drawn out the hat at half time with the rest going towards ground maintenance and club upkeep.

Full address: The Recycling Lives Ground, Inglewhite Rd, Longridge, Preston PR3 2NA
