The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

MORE­CAMBE chair­man Peter McGuigan has called on fans to fill the Globe Arena when they wel­come New­cas­tle for their Cap­i­tal One Cup sec­ond round tie.

McGuigan re­vealed the club will re­ceive around £175,000 in TV rev­enue for the visit of the Pre­mier League side next Wed­nes­day.

He said:“We are play­ing host to a Pre­mier League club and it is our big­gest game since Wem­b­ley (the Con­fer­ence play-off fi­nal in 2007) and I hope the peo­ple of the town help make it a great oc­ca­sion.

“New­cas­tle are a team that play in front of 55,000 fans ev­ery week and that shows how far we have come.”
