The club are subsidising travel to Oakwell on April 30, with coach seats just £7 per person.

That offer has been made in response to South Yorkshire Police insisting on a 12.30pm kick-off and the fact it is the first Gentry Day to be held live since April 2019 – the pandemic prevented that in 2020 and 2021.

North End have received a 3,100 allocation and there will be priority sales.

Coach travel is £7, with coaches going from Deepdale and Leyland.

On Wednesday the kick-off time was changed, that despite PNE, Barnsley and the EFL making strong representations to South Yorkshire Police.

North End said: “Both football clubs and the EFL have made numerous representations to the police explaining that there is no history of crowd disorder between the two clubs and as it is our designated Gentry Day it is a day of both remembrance and celebration not a day when we expect any disturbance.

"Despite our best efforts, the South Yorkshire Police have threatened the withdrawal of Barnsley’s safety certificate unless the kick off time is brought forward to 12.30pm on that day.

“In light of the above, both clubs have had no option other than to bring forward the kick-off time and therefore we can confirm that the match at Oakwell will kick off at 12.30pm on Saturday 30th April 2022."
