Panthers bosses have called on the local sporting community to help them pack the East of England Showground for the visit of the television cameras later this month.

The city club’s crunch showdown against fellow Premier League title hopefuls Glasgow on Wednesday, June 24 will be screened to the nation by Sky Sports.

And promoter Ged Rathbone is throwing open the Alwalton doors to junior sports teams from around the city.

The children will receive free entry as will one adult per five kids in any party with additional adults getting discounted admission of £10.

Rathbone said: “We really want to see a big crowd for the visit of the TV cameras and what is likely to be one of our toughest tests of the season.

“The response to this offer has already been great and we have roughly 350 kids pencilled in to attend.

“But we still have room to accommodate more teams.”

Teams interested should contact Rathbone on 07760 162164 or email They can also get in touch through the @PboroPanthers account on Twitter or via
