i am sure there must be a reason for the entry fee but it just seems a little bit of a slap in the face to me rather than an appreciation of the effort exiles generally make to get to BP.
In reality it means coming up a day earlier, an overnight stop which could be a potential added expense , then the £5 entry (ok effectively a couple of quid after you deduct a free pint).

For a club trying to build relationships then even a token entry fee seems a little unproductive to me on this occassion.

Because of Friday being a busy day at work I’m not 100% sure I’ll make it, though ill make the game.

As an exiled STH who makes all Saturday and most  Tuesday games I’m not bothered about £5 if it gives the Trust some cash to do some stuff for the greater good.

fck me the value of the pound has dropped since we left  

Thats kind of my point though, at £5 including a drink then they arent exactly going to be making a mint, £1:50/£2:00 per person... so to make it free you wouldnt actually be losing alot of income but you would be gaining an awful lot of decent PR.

To be honest the entry fee wouldn’t be the concern. Of all the costs associated with a weekend up to see the football a fiver isn’t going to tip the balance or pissme off.

Saturday evening would have been nicer as there’d be no need to take time off work, but I can see why they’d plump for Friday.

It’s good that the Trust have organised it.


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
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.

Hope they've got a bucket so we can chuck a donation in to aid the cause.
Quite fitting actually as Its a Grim Exile , the old exiles association \ newsletter always sponsored the youth team in the Ian Knight days
