Amazing that some people complain about others who are just backing one of the Chairmans plans.

All about opinions.   The Club can ill afford to be handing what is 1000s of freebies. Season ticket holders last season ( including you I guess MA Hill) have donated their part of the unused season ticket money. We have had warchest speaks etc.  SC is on record as saying if this season goes tits up no season ticket refunds as it will send the club pop.  Ask yourselves how much does it cost Stephen Cleeve to get in every week ?

So if people are volunteers then they should be paying. If they are being remunerated for being there then drop the word Volunteer.

Could I add a comment here from a point of personal experience. There are many comments here regarding volunteers (including stewards). I would say, it would be a good experience for some, to arrive some 3 to 5 hours before kick-off. Then, during a match with a large crowd, (Chester, York etc.), steward the segregated area with the police and security staff. Get knocked off your feet a few times, soaked in all manner of stuff thrown between rival fans (hoping it was beer!), see a colleague knocked to floor and dropped on, or another hit on the head with a bottle. During and because of this, see very little, if any of the game at all. Stay behind after to see the away fans, players and officials to their coaches...... Then pay for the privilege?
