Town move to attract fans

PUBLISHED: 09:42 27 November 2009 | UPDATED: 15:45 03 July 2010

CONCERNED about low attendances, and mindful of the probable influence of the current poor financial conditions on this, Great Yarmouth Town have come up with a tempting offer for fans.

CONCERNED about low attendances, and mindful of the probable influence of the current poor financial conditions on this, Great Yarmouth Town have come up with a tempting offer for fans.

For the first time ever, the Bloaters are to offer half-season tickets, writes Gerry Brown.

These will come at half the normal cost and will start with the Boxing Day derby against Gorleston at Wellesley Road. Only league games are involved but, as with the full season tickets, reserve and youth league games are also included.

These half-season tickets are £40 for adults and £20 for concessions, and are available immediately at any first team game or by telephoning the secretary Colin Jones on 07872 121942. An excellent Christmas present, maybe?

There is also a half-season half-price deal on offer for advertisers in the Bloaters' Bulletin, the match day programme.

Any business interested can obtain further details by ringing 01502 513669 or 07765 905727.

Bloaters' fans will be hoping the first team's run of success away from home continues tomorrow at Saffron Walden (kick-off 3pm) where the Bloods have lost three games while being unbeaten away.

On Tuesday, Yarmouth travel to Trafford Park for their Norfolk Senior Cup replay with Wroxham (7.45pm ko).

The Reserves have a home tie in the Chell Trophy, the Ridgeons Reserve League Cup, and Debenham LC provide the opposition (ko 3pm).

The Under-18s face Gorleston at Emerald Park in the return Youth League match on Wednesday (kick-off 7.45pm). The first match ended a 1-1 draw since when Gorleston have lost to Norwich United 3-0, Lowestoft 5-1 and 1-0 to Dereham.
