Chief executive Phil Smith said: "There will be some people who find it hard to get about and we're trying to make the match accessible. We're hoping for a big turnout and we wanted to find a good use for the bus.

"And you never know, if there's a big take-up we might all be driving round collecting people in our cars.

"But if you're drinking in the Maypole - about 100 yards from the ground - then we might have to draw the line and let you make your own way there!"

The offer is open to anyone who lives in the Ossett area and all you need to do is email the club with the address before 10pm on Friday night.

Saturday October 13 is Non League Day 2018, which seeks to promote and celebrate grassroots football.

The club is also offering £5 entry to anyone who is a season ticket holder for any other football club in the world.
