In addition to the selling of the season tickets, would it benefit the club and supporters if tickets were sold in batches, for example, being able to purchase a batch of six match tickets with the option of purchasing another batch further down the line.
I am thinking about those supporters who due to shift work, holidays etc are unable to attend every game, having already purchased a full season ticket and thus loosing out financially.
The selling of such tickets would also help spread the costs to the supporters in these tighten your belt times.

Good idea Bob. I'm angry that the concessionary / pensioner prices have risen from 7 to 9, a rise of nearly 29%. I don't see how this can be justified as it hits those who can afford it the least, when inflation is running at less than 5%. Any comment from the club?

Right on mate, stinging pensioners doesn't seem to fit with the community image the club is trying to promote. I don't think the pricing has been thought through properly.
