Everything goes up. I suspect those moaning are not real fans or not  season ticket holders.

I didn't expect the price to stay the same. As some have already mentioned GTFC have bills to pay like everyone else and they don't stay the same or come down. The same fans that moan about Fenty dipping his hands in his pocket to improve the team are then moaning that they have to dig a little deeper. If all the money raised goes to fund the team then it is the right decision and I will renew my season ticket just like I have every season for more years than I can remember in the hope of a season of glory.

I have to agree about not being able to pay for it monthly though. I apreaciate that not everyone can pay for one in one payment like I can. The club need to look at this since we live in a low pay area with little in the way of well paid jobs.

I am fortunate, as an exile, that I have other family reasons to visit N. Lincs. so I tend to discount transport costs. My senior discount in the Upper is worthwhile and I only missed 1 game. I will renew early to get my seat again. Even though many of the incentives have no relevance to me I want to see my team as much as I can while personal circumstances allow. Sadly, over this season, some who are close to me have had their lives changed through illness, bereavement and other unforeseen reasons. Their choices have changed for ever.
That said, the deal for families and low waged needs further examination. The marketing seems to ignore modern lifestyles and work patterns. While the fossils like me can still make it to BP we mask the demographics which threaten the viability of many L2 clubs. Surely we can use the success of the Youth Team to promote ST's to local families?
Looking forward to giving the £10 voucher away again.

Don’t you dare suspect any one of us for not being real fans.

I’m not a real fan because I’m asked to pay more for under par football and think it’s a bit cheeky?

I’m not a real fan because I think GTFC is an old boys club and what comes out of it off field is under par?

Which one or both?

I thought they said when 18/19 prices were kept the same, there would be an increase for 19/20? It hasn't come as a surprise to me anyway.

It wasn’t guaranteed it was identified as a possibility.

We’ll sell between 2500 to 3,000 as we always do but sadly those who have been so loyal haven’t been rewarded on or off the pitch.

No real incentive to new purchases says all you need to know about the unimaginative pillocks that run and commercially manage this club.

Until we become more creative on and off the out h it will always be the same old same old.

I’ve been a STH for years and like many do a big round trip...... that won’t change let’s just hope our “football fortune” does.

This is the risk. (Not that I see you as a fossil Cockers old boy). Overall we look to have an aging supporter profile. Not helped by waves of emmigration from the area - the first generation might make it back regularly, their offspring might do a bit, but as their social links are increasingly elsewhere they'll slowly stop coming. Driving around town today, much of it is run down and getting shabbier by the year. There are a lot of people who would have been hrdcore in past times who don't have the money. The town centre is dead (you can count the footfall in Freshney Place by hand). Emmigration from GY will not decrease any time soon. If people grow up with no connection with the club, when they go they won't be back. The club needs to work harder at attracting and retaining  and retaining the fanbase instead of the same tired old approaches, and belittling of supporters efforts.

I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

After being a season ticket holder for the last few seasons it will be pay as you go next season for me.

I fully expect Jolley to be given a poor budget for league 2 this summer.

No way I'm funding Mr Fenty's £200K a season claw back over bad decisions this time.

I THINK the problem isn't so much the rise in cost but the way they go about it. We've said for years our marketing is shocking. Seriously it isn't difficult, we have so many youngsters coming through we should be pushing for more season ticket holders using the youths as bate (so to speak). I'm quite embarrassed the way the club have just put up on the site saying season tickets are on sale and just left it at that. So frustrating and I genuinely believe it'll be (as much as I hope im wrong) a shock to the club when we struggle to sell 2,000 season tickets this year.
It's a massive shame because I think if given a decent budget aand if the youngsters come good Jolley can do good things with this club.
