Why wasn't the Jockey Lane entrance open?

Anyone?

 

Also, noticed our attendance was higher than 2 matches in KPC. Didn't think there was that many tbh, but there you go!

Well done to the players selected for the team of the week. Nice to see the players come from a wide variety of teams. Considering the coach didn't think the half backs gelled as well as he had hoped it bodes well for the future once they do click into gear.

After having spoken to the club I think it's an absolute farce that the Jockey Lane turnstiles won't be open at all this season. Even worse that you have to go on a fact-finding mission yourself to find out this stuff. There was an elderly 80+ year old couple had to walk the whole way round to the other side on Sunday in the horrible rain and wind because it wasn't open and they were unaware of it not being open. Like I said, farce.

So someone doesn't have stand there for "2 hours", even though they only open 30 mins before the match.

It costs an extra security guard and 2 volunteers - when its taking 1 entry and 2 concessions, its stupid having it open.

So why doesn't Asda/Sainsburys/Tesco only have 1 till open then so they only have to employ 1 checkout operator..? To make it easier for the customer, which the club clearly don't want to do.

Because they have thousands of customers per hour. You'll notice that when customer throughput is low, they close checkouts and move employees to other duties. When they're not expecting to be busy, they don't have so many staff on.

At least you can see that the checkout is closed.

At the end of the day, the club should have made sure everyone was aware that the entrance wasn't going to be open anymore. Then I wouldn't have to be having this mongoloid conversation with you.

Agree with YCKonstantine, but the club need to be as welcoming as possible to get more people through the gates. If this was someones first experience they might not have come again. 

 

No point reducing entry fees for friendly matches from a commercial point of view if you are not going to promote to a wider audience as most diehards will still pay the standard fee. It would be great if the deal for the York Select game could be rolled out at other fixtures where amateur clubs can purchase upto 100 tickets each at £10 for adults with the amateur club retaining £5 from each ticket sale. Hopefully this would encourage more to attend that would not normally so seen as an additional £5 per person on top of the usual home crowd.

Anyone who has ever met John Guildford would know he would see that as a tenner per person loss. And bearing in mind alot of regulars would swap their kids for one of the cheap tickets, it would be a loss to some extent.
