Good of you to answer on behalf of your mate.

Yes, very much so.

We've all got Friends Paul.

Shouldnít that be friends, rather than Friends?

Yes.

No. Problem Paul, Happy to help.   Least it clears it up.

Surprised B&G didnít find it that easy to answer, just as well you two update each other anyway.

Thanks again

Nothing I could do when he beat me to it.

Simple answer.... Stephen Cleeve podcast Episode 27.  8.5 mins onwards.   
Though Iím not sure you would class this as official Paul.  However Stephen 100% mentions the 800 figure.

Thanks Mallard.

I'm not 100% convinced we are. Could be just, but yes, all that matters is staying up and in these troubled times, the Club surviving to fight another day.

Paul. I don't think anything official has been said about the permitted gate for Torquay only being 800.

Cleeves 1400 statement on his podcast was before the cancellation of the Ladies game (which has been said was going to be the "test" game).

Prior to the cancellation of the game he had appealed to as many supporters to attend as it could  have a bearing on the permitted gate for Torquay (or words to that effect).

Since the cancellation of the game it has been said that ticket numbers could be restricted.

My understanding is that a condition of supporters bring allowed back into watch the games is that a "test" game has to be held first. As the Ladies game was cancelled, we haven't had the chance to hold a test game, hence people mentioning the 800.

I stand to be corrected on this but I don't think the figure of 1400 has been mentioned since the Ladies game was cancelled, and although the figure of 800 has been mentioned I don't believe that number has been mentioned by the Club either.

With regards to other Clubs not selling out, maybe they had not been able to have a test game either, so the numbers were restricted. I noticed one Club (could have been Weymouth) had a declared gate of exactly 800.

Hopefully the above is all correct but be good if others could either confirm or correct me.

Thanks. So basically you donít know officially, itís an assumption and there is nothing official behind the 800 figure? Iíve only seen 800 mentioned by a couple of people on here so I think Iíll wait to see if anything official is said.

Only know what's been said.

That the permitted gate  for Torquay game could depend on the attendance of Ladies game,  which was cancelled.

After it was cancelled it was said that tickets for Torquay game could be restricted.

The 800 figure mentioned is not unique to KL and neither is the subject of a test game.

 (has it been officially confirmed @ 800?)

That was going to be one of my two next questions.

Has it been confirmed that its a maximum 800 (to include season ticket holders and the freebies)?

Does it have to be all ticket or is it permitted to pay at the gate on the night?

Priced quite a few people out,people who would have taken children at the childrens rate etc! :bankrupt: :dontknow:

Of course it has. We all know why is been done but that don't make it right. Dispels the myth of us being a community club as far as I am concerned.

If its a sell out I don't think it should be automatically accepted that it was the right decision to make. However if its not a sell out (of 1400), then imo it will show it wasn't.

Do you not remember SC saying he wasnít prepared to continue to fund the club out of his own pocket ?

Yes, quite a while ago now, but presumably he did!  :dontknow:

This season is going to prove difficult enough to compete with a lot of full time clubs and would hate to see a budget cut come into play on top of that.

You have to cut your cloth accordingly. If that's what it takes to survive then so be it (as disappointing as that may be).

No Club can continue to have more going out than it has coming in indefinitely.

Canít be  expecting Stephen Cleeve to bankroll the club to that extent.   

Mallard, of course the fans need to support, but when did the business model that managed to get us to this level change?

From £5, to £10, to £20.

Great strategy...........worthy of a position on the Board!

@StephenCleeve


Any members wanting tickets for Torquay remember exclusive selling period ends at 9am Tuesday - ticket numbers could be reduced with the loss of one of our trial events at the weekend.


"......with the loss of one of our test events at the weekend".

Have we already had one? Presumably there is not another one planned prior to Saturday, as tickets are already being sold.   :dontknow:

If the permitted gate for Torquay is only 800 and not 1400, will entrance fees rise yet again?   :dontknow:

Why would it be 800? Already confirmed as 1,400

Only going by what's previously been said. Its previously been mentioned that a "test game" is required prior to the 1400 being allowed, and the Haverhill game was being used for that.

Is that not the case?   :dontknow:
