Same Ol' Debate

Recommended Posts

Guest

I know this one was rattled around for ages last campaign, but I have just been well shocked. I have looked on NLOTN attendance stats and see that Billercay are 2nd placed with a higher average gate than the mighty YELLOWS. The shock came in the fact that they've managed to pull in an extra 24% average gate this year over last - whereas we have only got another 3%. I just can't beleive all the publicity from last year, and the success so far this year hasn't motivated Island Folk.<P>ONCE AGAIN - What can be done ?? Is it pricing alone thats keeping people away ?<BR>(More posters, local pub involvement etc etc)<P>There, thats that off my chest. Look forward to another lowly gate Saturday week.<P>SAY WE ARE TOP OF THE LEAGUE, SAY WE ARE TOP OF THE LEAGUE

I read of an idea in a Harrow programme called 'bring a friend day' or something. What you did was get everybody to bring one extra person with them to a particular match, preferably someone who hadn't been to see the team play before. The idea was that at least some of them would become regulars, or at least semi-regular supporters. I've no idea if it worked or not, but I know through my own experience that a lot of people will go to a few extra games each season if you ask them along and show enthusiasm.

I see that Southend ran an Essex girl day last saturday, but I'm not sure whether it actually increased the attendance.<p>Still full marks for originality smile.gif" border="0

Something we have suggested to the powers that be on many a previous occassion is a 'Dad n Lad' ticket. Now I find out that West Ham are offering kids tickets for a pound a pop at certain games (you know, the smaller ones like Man U, Leeds, Liverpool - those sort of meetings)<p>If a Carling Premiership club can do it why can't a Ryman Premiership club do it ?

We run a Kids for a Quid scheme for about 5 or 6 matches a season, and it seems to be succesful.<p>We also have a "Junior Fleet" scheme whereby £10 membership gets you a bunch of goodies which includes half-price admission to all league matches and a couple of free tickets thrown in for Dad.<p>If you are interested, you can find details on the
