After a long and hard fought campaign (consisting of badgering the club at every possibility), there was a victory for the Supporters’ Trust today.
The club have announced that there will be a cash turnstile opened on matchdays in the future and that 340 seats in the Lower Floors-2-Go Stand will be made available. The seats will be allocated by means of a seat number on the ticket when purchased from the cash turnstiles (at gates 11 and 12) and the cost will be Â£14 (Â£10 concessions).
This is a victory for common sense at last and should encourage more people to turn up “on spec” in the future and, hopefully, increase gates.
The issue of a cash turnstile was to be part of Paul Giess’ article for the Trust in this week’s Observer, but it looks like we have had a victory on this one!
