Apparently, 980 have definitely been sold to Sarfend, as that's the amount that have gone to away section.

Probably another 300 have gone to other Sarfend supporters elsewhere in the ground (or so Souhend supporters believe).

If that's the case, a bit worrying that only around 800 Lynn supporters ore currently on board for such a big game.

Hopefully there will be plenty of walk upís on the day.
The worry would be if you canít sell opening day against a relegated League club then what happens when the likes of Wealdstone and the Doverís of this world come a calling ?

Has SC got the pricing structure badly wrong ?

Let's just hope everyone is holding back to this week and on the day.I've asked the club about segregation but have had no reply.Lets just say I do know my stuff where football fans are concerned and this game is going to get tasty if correct action isn't taken.

Yes, think many Lynn fans are used to and prefer buying on the day...can see there being a crowd of around 2700-3000.

Re pricing structure, I guess time will tell...think a few hundred will not be there because of price and maybe a few more because they don't feel the connection and/or don't enjoy the match day experience as much as they used to

As mentioned on another thread 'Bank Holiday Monday'  could prove interesting.

Chesterfield fans are becoming aware that tickets may/willbe at a premium. With a lot of ex Chesterfield folk now residing in Norfolk they are being primed for ticket procurement. It may come as a shock to them having to pay 21 quid though when they were more used to giving the bloke on the gate 2 bob and getting a tanner change!!!

Someone needs to be looking at away allocation urgently, who wants to be chucking away 3/400 £21s away.

Perhaps Covid could be another reason for slow sales - there are still some people who donít understand the idea that itís over now, because weíve had enough of it, and now want to get back to normal.  Normal for Norfolk, it may be, but I think itís normal for England too, on that score.

Had some "interestingly conversations" on Faceache about people who don't know if their work schedule will allow them to attend. Short notice by employers about need to work due to outside influences like deliveries, orders etc.

Would the club know if the tickets are going to home or away supporters if they are buying on line?

Think itís a bit late to be worrying about that.  Think that ship has well and truly sailed

Talk on Sarfend forum is 1500 travelling for this one.

So are you saying that the Club is aware that the planned segregation of supporters is probably not going to be effective due to the way tickets have been sold?
