An example...

I have a season ticket with my dad (OAP) and son (10).

At Town...
Adult £325
OAP £230
Junior £70
Total £625

The closest EFL club to my home is Nottingham Forest.

At Forest...
Adult £330
OAP £230
Junior £10
Total £570

Until the club start treating juniors like a cash cow that can be milked over and over again any other initiative is merely papering over the cracks.

You might want to change the ‘start’ to a ‘stop’ !!

Or are you Mr Shut up 😉


You just have to accept that in life:

Some days you are the pigeon.

Some days you are the statue.

There are lots of things in the pipeline that will keep this going. Pen P, there was never the suggestion that the club have not helped. It’s been very well received and in a very positive way. We always wanted to make sure right from the start it was not something led by anyone but the fans.
In terms of new things coming up there’s a great offer from GY Independent for advertising if you are a business, there’s some cracking memorabilia, and merchandising items. Please try to be positive about all this, it will be a huge success if we are.


Batch, Crombie, Moore K, Wiggington, Cumming, Waters, Bonnyman, Ford, Emson, Drinkell, Whymark. Love you all, You are the reason I'm on here. You've had help from Todd, Handyside, Futcher P, Groves, Mendonca, Macca etc etc etc. Up The Mariners!!!!!!!!!

Forest get considerably more income from TV rights than we do though so can charge less if they want to. Unfair to compare us to a Championship club for season tickets IMO.

From a pragmatic point of view, if you lived near one and had young kids and were simply deciding which club to go and watch the price is important. Not everyone is as dedicated as Golly. Let’s say you’re a lapsed Mariner who was teetering on the brink. Where would you go?

Quoted from BarkerDan10
Last night I floated on Twitter the idea of helping the cause by organising a friendly match to raise some funds for the cause. If each player chucked a fiver in to play, we might be able to help make a bit of a difference. Is this of any interest to anyone on here?


If the club are up for this then why not set up a supporters v staff / ex players match on Blundell Park and have the starting 11 and 3 sub places up for auction or have thhe supporters v supporters match on BP but charge £20+ per person

This is languishing a bit. Only £710 and 25 supporters so far. Didn’t expect to see an OP level of support but thought it might do better than this two weeks in.
