Take a look what's going on ahead of Saturday's Match vs Mansfield Town FC.
The Marquee will be open from 12.30pm with music, drinks, and a family zone.
We’ve been checking the weather forecast and it’s not looking too promising for our outdoor kids zone but, even if the inflatable assault course and 5-a-side footy skills are rained off, there will be plenty going on inside the marquee.
Music, games, sweets, and treats and a “design your own County kit” table.
Don’t forget, this season, we’ve included a Junior Exiles Pull-Out as part of the match day programme so pick up your copy and enjoy all the Exiles activities.

Half Time Draw

The Club shop will be open from 10am until kick off for you to pick up all your merchandise, shirts or programmes! We will also be open for 30 minutes after the full-time whistle.
We have recently had a delivery of Grey Replica First Team Training Kit, Spytty the Dog Soft Toys, and Red Replica First Team Warm-up Training Kit.
The Programme Shop
Not only is this the best place to purchase your matchday programme, The Programme Shop also boasts matchday programmes dating back over 40 years!
Located between the old Snelling Bar and the Club Shop, the Programme Shop is a little treasure trove of Matchday Programmes and Club badges from over 200 Clubs. Thet also stock books, magazines and a whole host of interesting football-related items for you to browse and buy. All this tucked away in a nook of Rodney Parade!
The Programme Shop will open at midday and close at kick off but will re-open for an hour after the match.
Show Racism the Red Card
We are pleased to be dedicating Saturday’s match to supporting the UK’s leading anti-racism Charity, Show Racism the Red Card. Look out for the players warming up in their t-shirts.
