Quoted from Trawler
From Lisa Piggot on Facebook:

On behalf of GTFC I would like to apologise for the delay in issuing Season Tickets.  Unfortunately we have been let down with the delivery time from the printers and we have over 1300 to process in the coming week.  They have started to arrive but in separate batches as they take time to be put together.  We had been promised they would all be with us on Tuesday 28th June.  But this did not happen after numerous email and calls they started to arrive on Friday.  We are asking supporters if the could leave it till 11th July to pick up their tickets thus giving us time to process them.  Hope you all can be patient with us and we will do everything to get this issue sorted as quickly as possible.  Thanks UTM


Fair play to Lisa in putting this out there, but it's the club who should be saying this via the website and through the Telegraph.  Not everyone is on Facebook, nor will they see this if they are.  

The other point is that the season tickets went on sale mid June, why was the order placed to arrive by the end of June?   It's not like a football club and a season has sprung upon us suddenly and someone has had an idea we might want to sell some season tickets.  The only potential difference I can think of is the badge of the Football League on the front as opposed to the National League one, although I can't recall from memory if previous tickets have had this.   This order should have gone in months and months ago with the arrival date well before the tickets went on sale.

Yes there's a fair argument that this is completely out of the clubs control and that they've been badly let down by the printers, but it's the club who chose to use these printers - not the other way round.  GTFC are employing a printing firm to provide a service.  Was any due diligence done on the printing firm?  A batch of 3,000 season ticket books is not a big print order, far from it in fact.  If the printing firm can't meet the criteria the order should have gone to a firm that could.   It's all good and well the printers promising that they will be with the club, but they weren't.  In business that's just not acceptable.  Are we professional enough to enter into contracts with providers or are we just doing it on promises?

We all want GTFC to a better, more professional and more efficient club.  From the players on the pitch to all the back-office functions that are essential, if not always recognised.  This isn't a criticism of the club for the sake of it, it's about highlighting that the club need to improve on things like this if we want to move forward.  

We're in the middle of a drive to increase season ticket holders to a level that we've not seen in nearly two decades, the basics of having the physical ticket available should be a fundamental basic.  

It doesn't make a difference to the use of the ticket, you can't use it until the first game and I completely understand that.  But if this has put off a single potential season ticket holder then it's a catastrophic error all round, in my opinion that is.

I want to buy a season ticket, But I don't usually live in Grimsby (Damn university).

I'm in the process of trying to get a placement in Grimsby but I'll probably find out after the cut off date for the 'Early Bird' season ticket if i was successful, at which point it'll be cheaper for me to buy every game separately.

I'm still excited for the day when i can finally purchase my first season ticket

Thank you for your offer Bax but already arranged for someone to pick my ticket up,but think you should you should review your policy of not posting tickets especially to those living out of Town.
