Boston have now sold 825 season tickets.Ours aren't even on sale yet!What's that?circa 250k?
Scunthorpe have sold 1800.circa 600k?
Darlington beat the budget stands at 166k.
I guess that's the other side of having a Joe and his chequebook so we don't have to worry about such trivial matters.

Such trivial matters......like supporters!

8. A fully functioning professionally run community club that makes its supporters feel valued and appreciated?

Blu donít you find it interesting to see which Clubs offer good value for money and give their fans who are prepared to support the Club early doors, a decent deal.

At £13 SC is certainly offering a decent deal.  So no one can use that one against him.  Maybe his pay on the day price needs a bit of a re think.  Then again he has said that fans who just support a winning team are no good to Kings Lynn.  So maybe they should pay through the nose.

By support I  presume he  means attending games, winning or losing.

It's the way of the world. Nothing new there. Winning team, bigger gates. Losing team, smaller gates. You'd think he'd be aware of that.

Bit of a silly thing to say really. Doesn't the Club want the extra few thousand that come through the gates when the Club is on a successful Cup run, and are supporting a winning team?

 :dontknow:

My view is naturally biased, being as i am of 'mature years', when for various age related reasons it is impractical for me to buy a season ticket.  So i prefer to buy a ticket when i know i am going to be able to attend. Recent concessionary pricing suggests to me that Mr Cleeve has little or no regard for the many elderly very long standing supporters who were active supporters of the club in its various incarnations, long before he realised that 'The Linnets' even existed and I'll be very surprised if there are  not others who share this view?

At least the quality and quantity of communication emanating from the club is consistent.

Great minds etc ?!

Indeed, well done to all concerned. Does anyone know the net amount raised for such a worthy charity, after any incidental expenses were deducted?

A sense of entitlement perhaps?

In simple terms, will he start treating paying customers as supporters? Don't hold your breath.

I'm delighted for him, more so after his unfortunate experience when on trial with us. Maybe our 'academy obsession' means we are missing out on some who don't take that route?

Just looking through the various Clubs who have got season tickets on sale.

Southport are offering an early bird deal of £169 for an adult.  That works out at just over £7 a game (7.35 ).  How do Clubs afford to offer such attractive prices ?

A combination of higher than average attendances and a professional commercial operation that maximises fund raising opportunities??

Looking back to to last summer I canít understand how the Chairman handed out 2 year contracts to some 13 players then get to November for the Chairman to say the club is on its uppers and without outside investment the Club canít continue. 

Then looking we have a change of Manager who doesnít fancy some ( 50%?) of the players on long term deals.   More mess to clear up

Dysfunctional maybe best describes how the club is run in almost every respect. Contrast us with a club being run on a sound, sensible commercial basis, just across The Wash. One that also genuinely values its supporters, rather that treating them as customers who should just pay up without complaint in support of a personal vanity project.

I wonder if the successful applicant will use 'that table' to sort all the sponsorship opportunities that come flooding in?
