Haverhill Ladies
« on: December 06, 2020, 10:09:58 AM »
The game against Haverhill Ladies today has been postponed, apparently due to Covid issues.

With what's been mentioned previously regarding this game, presumably that could end up costing the Club a lot of money!   :dontknow:

I see Weymouth are reducing the numbers to be admitted following Saturday's match

I doubt they’ll be the last. It’s seems the stadium safety group are operating a two strikes policy. 1st incident, capacity reduction. 2nd, stadium bans.

I hope Lynn fans that plan to go the Walks anytime soon take note of this.

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:

Wasn’t capacity service at 1,400 in the summer (when fans were originally going back in October).

Don’t see why it would be reduced personally?

Chairman’s podcast confirmed it was 1,400?

I thought the Haverhill ladies game was the needed ‘test’ before 1400 were going to be admitted.  That was a game that transferred to The Walks after Bromley refused to come last Wednesday ( moved from Tuesday).

If it is only 800 and not the 1400 will SC be well within his rights to raise the admission cost ?  After all the price of £22 was set on a gate of 1400. 

Or maybe the Club could bang in an Academy game before Saturday.

Can only find attendances from three games yesterday:
Weymouth, who said it was a test, 800
Sutton United 934
Torquay 975

.  Have any other clubs raised their prices in this way?

Bromley sitting for adults up to £25, concessions up to £20 and u16 is £12. Terracing for adults is £20

So 3 of them similar to us, and 1 vastly different!

If the Gov money is no longer available ( was it a 2 month or 3 month deal ?). Then who can blame SC for charging a premium price for all seats.  It’s a sellers market.    After all if the supporters don’t pay for it then it means the Owner would have to foot the bill.  Hardly fair on him after all he has had to pay out.  The 84k Gov hand out has not been enough to fund the Club.   I seem to recall SC stating it cost in excess of 100k a month to fund the Club. So he is already dipping deeply into his own pocket.

By today’s game being a ‘test’ game was just taking what SC said on his Twitter feed

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.
