With one of the biggest games of the season coming up next Saturday and the home attendances that have gone up each home game where we are getting 900 Lambs fans in shouldn't the board keep the prices as £12 and kids for a quid for the rest of the season. It will look as if they are picking peoples pockets if they put the prices up by £2 this Saturday. Do the honourable thing Mr Andrews now you have some of the fans back. It's my opinion that the team that lose's Saturday could miss out on a play off spot with Chorley, Boston,Oxford and even Worcester closing in.

AGREED !

AFC Fylde only charge £10.00.

IMO Under 16s should be let in for a Quid.

2 for 1 Adult Deal Prices on selected matches.

This would improve the gates and revenue in the Clubhouse !

We also need to seriously undercut the prices Villa and Birmingham City charge, as this is where some supporters living in the Tamworth area go.

AFC Fylde only charge £10, the whole set up is being bankrolled by a multi millionaire, so maybe that's why they can afford to charge less.
I buy a season ticket to reduce my costs, but I still don't consider £14 expensive in this day & age, although I appreciate some people can't afford it, with the cost of living what it is.
Villa would have to pay me to watch them.

Not like David Haythornthwaite , he is seriously wealthy, like 20 million.

Perhaps not and i wouldnt want to knock Bob Andrews. I admire the loyalty he has shown for the past 30 odd years or so and god knows where we would have been without him.However he is a very wealthy man by all accounts. Didnt he sell his engineering business for about 9 million quid, and was no doubt very comfortably off prior to that. Couple this with the wealth of the other board members and i doubt we are exactly the poor relations of Conference North. Whereas £14 quid is perhaps not overly expensive for some, it is a tidy sum for a lot of people to watch a game of football. Personally i cannot understand why there is the need to charge more for some matches than others. £12 at that level is more than enough, and im in agreement with Kingsbury Lamb.

Should have amended the website sometime ago but like everything else it has got pushed back and back so apologies for that, I have amended the price list now but in short its B prices for the rest of the season and the junior offer will be on a match by match basis. As long as it is being supported like it has been I personally cannot see it being stopped.

Lets make it Fortress Lamb and get behind the lads in what is a massive game for both clubs, neither club can think about losing the game especially with Boston and Oxford on a charge. Will go down to the wire and 3 points Saturday will give the winning side a great boost and put a big nail into the losers ambitions.

Just do IT


Aston Villa get £10 million per game or shortly will do from Sky and BT so they can afford to give tickets away, we work in the real world where every penny is needed. Where will be these clubs with sugar daddy owners, we have seen them all come and go and the clubs die. TFC will live on and continue to battle against the odds with what we have. Its what makes it special when we upset the applecart.

When we get 1500 on a regular basis it may change but for now enjoy what we have as this squad is very good and capable of taking us back up.

Thats good news Rod. Hopefully people will come down and watch the lads now its officially category B. The more people we can encourage to come to The Lamb the better. Whatever happens for the rest of the season Andy Morrell and Mike Fowler have done a tremendous job in turning things around.Whilst we were below par on Saturday lets not lose sight of the fact that we have only lost twice in something like the last 20 games, and the players  deserve great credit. It says a lot that in November most of us i think would have been happy  staying up and maybe reaching mid table at best, that we are actually in with a shout of going up. Some old faces are returning and have returned to the terraces and as we know The Lamb can be a pretty formidable place to come to for the opposition with a large crowd behind us. COYL

The above is spot on. I did the fan interview in the Hednesford away programme (the first of the glorious twelve). I predicted we'd draw that day and said that Morrell was a good appointment, had already begun to make a difference and we'd finish midtable. If you'd said to me however that by the middle of March, play off qualification would be entirely in our own hands, I'd have said you were bonkers. AM and MF deserve huge credit. The improvement has been bigger and quicker than I think any of us foresaw. We aren't there yet and I think given a full pre-season they'll do even better next season but it really could happen this year.

£12 changed my mind I will be there. Just got back from work, so I'll ask the wife to shake the cob webs off the scarf.
