Have been given 1,255 seated tickets in the Osmond Stand.. Does thhis mean town fans will have a block or 2 in the osmond for the game.

Also to add a big thanks to Tiny Mariner for helping me with purchasing tickets for the game, wouldn't have been the same a trip bback 'home' without seeing the mighty mariners in action!

Holds 1884 so sounds like we may have the corner. Might depend on how quick or if they sell there initial allocation out.

Hopefully we're selling them from block E and working across. Atleast then if it's a urine poor turnout for them we can have more home fans 👊

There won’t be any home fans in the Osmond for the County game.

I was going to make a joke and say that that sounds like a bet, but there is a serious point here. Though around 100, mostly restricted view tickets remain in the Main Stand for tomorrow’s game, we appear to have sold over 500 tickets in the Osmond which will probably be closer to 700 come kick-off time.

That means that even ignoring the likely greater demand for the Notts County game, we’d be turning away fans even with the two blocks near the Main Stand. Does this not in fact increase the chances of Town fans ending up amongst County fans in substantial numbers? I realise this is probably not the club’s decision, but it does feel like a potential oversight nonetheless.

Very good point.


Fao Kristine. Thanks for the information, I'm very lucky to have managed to get a ticket then! St holder for  10+ years, followed home and away aswell but now an exile so I deserve the tickets unlike all these fair whether fans Coming along 😉

--- just to confirm that last part is tongue in cheek. I'm loving the massive increase in interest! UTM

I agree
Shouldn’t be allowing Notts to have that many tickets in light of the demand there is for home tickets

Is this the first bit of an issue

If there us Town demand, then our fans should come first

Possibility then, perhaps not likely admittedly, that the attendance tomorrow is bigger than the County game - if County have two bad results and sales for tomorrow continue apace...shame that this comes to pass that we can't share a stand with opposition fans with some seats left empty and some sensible stewarding.

I don’t think there’s an issue necessarily in the size of Notts County’s allocation - of the above figure of 1,255 is correct then we haven’t given them the whole stand, at least yet. Personally, if they are able to sell enough tickets for both sections of the Osmond then I’d be inclined to give them the full allocation, so long as there’s an agreement that they reciprocate for our away game in the new year.

I’m assuming the reason we’re being told of no Town fans in the Osmond is one of safety / segregation. My argument is that by denying home supporters seats which may otherwise remain empty, you run the risk of inflaming the situation and of Town fans obtaining tickets in the away end (which could get messy).
