After the interviews it will be time for the old rivalry to be decided on the pitch. There might be four divisions separating the two sides with Woking now established in the National League and Guildford City playing their football in the Premier Division of the Cherry Red Combined Counties League but this is cup football, and a semi-final at that.

Of course our illustrious neighbours from Kingfield are heavy favourites to win the match but the City players are looking forward to the game immensely and manager Steve Dormer has told his charges to go out and enjoy the game whatever the result. There will be no pressure for the players dressed in red and white stripes.

This is a great opportunity for the people of Guildford to come out and support their local semi-pro side. There has been a lot of interest in the town in the last few days and a much larger than average crowd is expected.

There is free parking at the Spectrum and there is a licensed bar and refreshment facilities inside the ground. For those travelling by public transport the 100 bus service runs regularly to the Spectrum from the Friary Bus Station in the town centre. Ground admission at the Spectrum is £7 adults, £4 concessions and £1 juniors. As you enter via the turnstiles don’t forget to buy your souvenir copy of the clubs quality match day magazine priced at £2.
