Bentley said: “It’s great.

“I’ve been copied in on the stuff about whether they can or can’t play here.

“It’s a great idea and fantastic that we can show our support and lend a hand to them.

“They can’t play here every week because of the pitch but for this type of match, FA Cup third round against Stoke, it’s fantastic that we’re hosting it here at the Globe and showing that relationship is strong between the two groups.

“Hopefully they can get through to the next round.”

Kick-off on Sunday, February 1, is noon with admission £3 for adults and £1 for concessions.
