There is a rumour that Mr Cleeve's has donated a season ticket to my good self, any truth in that?  :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry:

He might pay for your very infrequent attendances (work commitments allowing) but why waste good money on a part-timer  :dontknow:  :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry:


Because he knows I probably spent more in the bar than many who attended every game,so gained from me that way? :laughcry: :cheers: :laughcry: :cheers: :laughcry: :cheers: :laughcry: :cheers: :laughcry: :cheers: :laughcry:

Get it sorted then grissles.  :cheers:

They have the friends and a steering committee for that sort of thing, I did actual suggest it at the FOTL AGM, but suggested more squares but a lower price. Guess they thought it was another of my silly ideas?  :dontknow:

I did make a suggestion that maybe any fan with relevant skills could be invited to help?

Any club that is going anywhere needs a lot more than just gate money, at the level we are at we need every source of income that is out there, just look at most of the clubs at the same level as us ,not many survive on match day income only.

Well said, any amount large or small all goes to swell the coffers.  :comeon:
No one would argue with that or is arguing with that.

So any suggestion that raises funds is viable?
Well, some suggestions are better than others, of course. So not any suggestion. Some have been daft. There was something about tin cans I seem to recall. A better idea than just a suggestion would be a carefully thought through and costed plan. We can all make suggestions but without some substance behind them these ideas come across as whinging about ticket prices because some feel, wrongly, that ticket prices would be lower if funds were raised from elsewhere. No doubt you will recall those threads Griss.


Of course I recall those threads, I think another suggestion was solar panels, but you didn't mention that one? Nice that you managed to bring yet another thread around to admission price?  :dontknow:
I think you'll find that MA Hill raised the issue of ticket prices on this thread Griss, not me. I just feared it would ignite more of the ticket price nonsense that we've had before. The solar panels idea did appear to be a good idea to be fair but to make it happen someone needs to take ownership of the idea and turn it into a project that becomes reality. Now that would be impressive. We'd all get behind that. What is the latest on the solar panels idea Griss? Why don't you try and make it happen? Building and construction is not something I know anything about but it sounds as though you do.

The easy and only way it can happen is if the tenant gets a company in that deals with solar panels, then they come and quote, I think that is how it works?

Stan; Oh dear, I fear the blue ticket price touch paper may have been unintentionally lit once more: cue incendiaries about fund raising and sponsorship etc.

Wrong thread Griss.


So will the steering committee not be looking at sponsorship and fundraising?  :dontknow:

It is what it is.  Black n white. Pay the new admission cost or don’t go.  Simple


See what you have done now Stan?  :banghead;

In this league expenses will be higher so it stands to reason that income needs to go up hence the hike in admission charge common sense really to the most of us

Already lit the fuse Stan, don't tempt people to comment then complain when they do!!  :banghead;

I think people are keen to see the projected line up for the season ahead? Few names could increase season ticket sales a bit more?  :scarf: :scarf: :scarf:
