Getting very interesting at the top. I’m predicting the title to go to either Hereford or Slough, Kettering to drop off the pace a bit with Kings Lynn 3rd.
While on subject of Mings Lynn I notice their website is sshowing an admission price of £15 for your game against them on 30th January. £16 if you want a seat in stand. That’s a lot of money for this level!
If I go, I don’t think I’ll use their ticketing system. I think I’ll empty the piggy bank and pay all in pennies at the turnstile!

£15 to stand at a SLP Premier match, blimey! I cant imagine its a particularly rich area either.
i think we are cheap at £9 (up to £10 when we are in top 6) but 50% more than our higher figure is just too much. Seems like the average is around £11.

Wonder how many Hereford fans will make the trip? I know a few Lynn fans won’t go at £15?

Considering its a big match and a six pointer I think there are several reasons why Bulls fans will not be there in big numbers.
We have a strong fan base in the South East and London and not easy for them to make it after work.
The time it takes to get there, 175 miles. Around 5 hours on a coach or 4.5 hours by car.
Regular awaydays coach leaving at noon, in other words its more than half a day off work. They get to KL at 4pm and thats too early IMO. Would have brought more if coaches left at 2pm.
The cost of travelling.
Is £15 the normal charge that KL make or are they trying to cash in. I think we have a few who would object and not travel on principle if that is the case.
Looks like 1 coach but only 12 booked ATM. But early days yet.
Having said that our fans are amazing, and its a six pointer. I’d still say we will have around 150 die hards or so there.

Normal price at King’s Lynn ia £12,he has decided to charge three games at £15,these will be the top three teams to try and cash in on a big following. As a Lynn supporter myself I hhave refused to attend any £15 games,I feel it is not fair on anyone. Our Chairmans response to anyone voicing a negative opinion is to slag them off and block them on twitter,got to the stage where many Lynn fans are talking of not attending again all season.

Sounds like the Chairmans plan is going to misfire in quite a big way for a bit of short term profitering.
Charging your loyal fans extra for the big matches is a strange way to reward their loyalty, especially when the match is not going to be a sell out.
Its a tricky one, our club did not increase prices at home for the sell out FAC cup games even though they would have been able to justify it.
