has anyone actually had any information from the club?

They took the money several weeks ago, but have not had any contact from them. Starting to regret bothering, as the club appear to have no regard for the supporters!  Just an email update would be polite!  At the end of the day we have paid for what may well be a season without any live games, We took the risk. Now the club are taking the urine! Absolutely no communication from them at all, even though the first home game should have taken place. Tempted to do a charge back on my credit card to be honest.  I've put my money in and been shown utter contempt. Meanwhile the board appear to have put nothing in.

I said it weeks ago, you’d have to be mad to part with your cash for a season ticket. At ANY club. But particularly ours.

I think GTFC are good people and well meaning, but to the core, they’re useless. From top to bottom. And always have been.

I’m not saying that I’d do a better job, but it’s the truth.

In fact, you know what? I WOULD do a better job!

I supported the club last season by not asking for a refund but Jeez I'm glad I didn't renew this season.

Bring on the red crosses.

Does that mean you agree or not?

Said the same at the time,they knew the risks when they renewed their tickets,they must have known there was a risk of a second wave.I saw  renewing my season ticket was  too risky when the club expected the fans to carry all the risk.

.I feel those who bought their season tickets should view it as making a very magnanimous donation to the club something I was not in a position to do.

Not sure what there is to say really? The pilots were delayed and it’s pretty clear there won’t be any spectators for many months and ST holders will have to watch via iFollow. I suspect the club has as much details as we do regarding any progress in this respect.


Up The Mariners!

I purchased mine because it’s just something I do and I was able to do that.

I know the club are hiding behind the government guidance and the like but I’m still expecting us to receive a fine and or worse for not fulfilling our fixtures...at this stage I’m not even getting a game on iFollow to watch.

Whether fans are allowed in is anybody’s guess. I guess it depends which side of the COVID fence you sit. The clubs leadership imitates that of government...clueless and chaotic.

Whilst I’m not sure what the club could do, as mentioned, a courtesy email to say sears and so forth have been allocated and tickets, should purchasers wish to, are available for collection.

It’s beginning to feel again like the club were happy to take the cash but aren’t even having the courtesy to thank and keep those people abreast of any developments; even if it to simply say “we don’t know at this stage but thank you for spending your hard earned cash on essentially a hobby in these difficult times”.

It’s alright though, the club will be safe, the enigmatic and inspirational Vickers is on the case so I feel safe now...

I didn't renew but feel the club should be bending over backwards to show their gratitude to those that were brave enough to do so. An email or a statement of thanks on the OS wouldn't cost them anything.

I’ve said it before, the terms and conditions GTFC released aren’t compatible with consumer protection laws. The whole basis of the consumer protection laws are that customers are not put at an unfair disadvantage. Paying for something and getting nothing or a token replacement valued far less than you paid for is about as slam dunk an example of customers being put at an unfair advantage.

I did suggest everyone who could pays with a credit card. Your CC provider won’t care about GTFC’s hastily written t&c’s. They’ll follow the relevant consumer protection laws and will just give you a refund.
