I'd predict Walton & Hersham charging the same for CCL football next season... 

 

I don't much like my own club charging £8, but I understand that when you factor in rent, utilities and everything else, to cut the price reduces income without the benefit of increased attendances and makes it harder to run the business. Because, once the club is incorporated, that's what it is. 

 

Up here, I can watch AFC Liverpool at Step 5 for £3 as I have an NUS card but they market themselves as a club for those who can't afford to watch Liverpool FC. AFC Liverpool also have an arrangement with Marine FC, whose ground they share, to sell their extensive range of merchandise in Marine's shop on matchdays and do a lot of fundraising. Plus they don't have to maintain a ground (yet).

 

Most Step 4 clubs in the NPL seem to charge around £8, which is what Ashford charged when we came down and what I hope we will charge next season if we go up. The fact is, running a football club is expensive!

Sutton Common Rovers have announced their season ticket prices for next season 16/17 after successfully running them for the 1st time this season.

 

Has to work out to be the cheapest Step 5 football available around.

All credit to clubs who offer initiatives. We will be up £1 for all  1st XI Wood games next season but an email and cash for (£TBA) will get you a season ticket at Wibbandune for Wood and Balham games (TBC in 1 weeks time).  :580:

8/9 quid is the norm at step 4 to be fair...

 

I went to that fleet game with my 14 year old son and he was free entry which was a good touch so no complaints from me.

 

I have to say it was a very entertaining game between 2 very decent sides, fleet should have been out of sight first half, second half Camberley looked better side but fleet had the best chances and will feel hard done by to have lost, classic game of 2 halves really although fleet the better side which may surprise a few who dismiss step 4 as being shockingly poor!

 

As a neutral it was a good watch to be honest and 2 decent sides. Well done both sides, I was surprised Camberley played a virtual full strength side from looking at their recent teams, thought they would have rested virtually all, credit to them though for not.
