dewsbury til i die here but had to start again as i lost my password... Crusaders brought 70 fans sunday according to afew of their fans,not 100,you only have to watch the rams highlights and view the southstand to see this.. but sounded like about 7,000 of them because they was loud and had a drum.. That said 708 was very poor, 638 home fans and many faces missing... I reckon having no curtain raiser knocked about 100 off gate and its now holiday season.. but what is clear is we appear to have stopped promoting the club again and we cant afford to do  that? We really do need to start trying to get the kids watching the club as we appear to have way too many older supporters(no offence) with very few younger supporters watching us. I know we have the under12s go free scheme with paying adults but under 16s go free would be alot better in my oponion. just my opinion???

17 Local Clubs were contacted about the Junior Half Time games but only one could raise a Team because of the
School Holidays and Parents unwilling to help with supervision.

The Club is still trying to promote itself but various avenues have been tried without any response. From
personal experience, the same situation applies when trying to interest Sponsors.

The curtain raiser is a great idea though as it adds to the gate and has the potential to get kids and parents back to future games if they enjoy themselves aswel as with both teams plus parents usualy adds around 100 to gate. I never expected UNDER12S GO FREE WITH A PAYING ADULT to work though but it was was a good way to start. Maybe free junior season tickets to all amatuer clubs should be the next step, only as to be a season ticket card... That would have a better chance of working. We may have started marketing with afew ideas but much more could be done.

I don't know how many Junior Season Tickets we sell each Season, I'm sure someone will know, but how about a Free Junior Season Ticket for Free with a Full Priced Adult Season Ticket?

 

Before anyone shoots me down, I am a parent and understand that the ticket is only a small proportion of the amount I will end up spending when attending a game, so the club will make this money back.
