We apologise for the issues you faced buying half time draw tickets and the shortage of glasses at the Barrow game. We did ask the ticket sellers to let us know in the office if they were running short of tickets but we didn't get a message so assumed they had enough. We did in fact give them extra for the game and we will give them even more for the Halifax game since you are right to asssume we do, like every club, need the money. The beer and plastic glass issue will also receive particular attention for the next game since this should not have happened but it did and again, like yourselves, it is not something we want to receive repeated.

Here's a thought - the competition sponsors sell their zider in plastic bottles .......

This is a great suggestion. Surely all the clubs should be able to get bottles of kingstone press cider for a fairly reasonable price ? To be honest it would be good publicity for them because to be honest I can't remember ever seeing their product. Suspect they don't do plastic bottles, but still worth looking at surely...? I would have bought one last week. Nice summers day.....

Speaking to the lady behind the Main Stand she said she was given 6 books but sold these out before 2.30 and she reckoned she could have sold at least 4 more books. So based on that maybe give her 12 books. I guess any programme seller not brining any half time draw back means they could have sold more.

And sorry to say but there were people waiting outside the shop after Sundays game, who I assume we're interested in buying some merchandise. If someone could en the shop for 15-20 minutes at the game then that's probably all that's needed.

And if there was a quick way of buying a plastic bottle of beer or if there were some pre-pulled pints I would have a drink at half-time. I don't bother cause I either have to go early and miss the end of first half or queue and miss the start of the second half. I think the butties are a very good idea and will sell well.

I agree but thanks for informing us that the club will sort things, that all we can ask. Like the bottle idea too, alcohol choice is abit poor in the southstand bar, maybe the badger bar could sell bottles?

Might be a good idea to reopen the badger bar again if possible when the terracing work is completed in that area.

Akaidere was also in there looking big and fit - surely he should have been given a chance yesterday given that the Barrow wingers are neither tall or fast.


Akaidere is about 4 foot nowt with a defence to match

But aren't you restricted as to what you can sell due to your tie up with Tetleys? (or whoever the brewer is)

Yeah he is short - then again so were Jason robinson and des drummond. Don't know about his defence - he doesn't get enough game time to judge, but on sunday's display finnigan isn't any great shakes either.

I think you might be right. However if not, surely it's worth contacting kingstone to see what sort of deal might be possible, particularly if they do plastic bottles?

I reckon there's a clue in the name of our stadium that says this isn't such a good idea.

Nick is obviously a glass half full man BSJ - personally I subscribe to the fact that, regardless of which you are, there's always room for more beer. ;)

It is by likely that given Tetleys sponsorship the club might well be restricted in what they can sell alcohol wise.

Chang sponsor Everton FC and therefore only sell Chang lager. This will probably be the same for Dewsbury only being allowed to sell Tetley's with the sponsorship contract they have in place.
