Summer Plans

Ah those long summer months, a time to kick back, relax and muse over last season’s success. A period of reflection and quiet contemplation.

If only.

Next season’s budget has been drafted and ticket prices have been discussed. We aim to retain them at their current level. But in order to keep them the same we will be working day in and day out over the summer on some key areas that will hopefully allow us to do so.

This years Season Ticket Campaign will begin in earnest over the next week. Last season’s holders have received their renewal letters and some have renewed already, but we intend to increase the drive significantly.

A review of our merchandising operation will be undertaken. We don’t intend to increase ’commercial activity’ per se, but become smarter in what we sell and how we sell it.

We hope to revamp match day operations, including another call-to-arms regarding stewarding. This area takes an almighty chunk out of our yearly budget and by taking a DIY approach to it we could make significant savings.

These areas along with football friendlies to arrange and organise, season tickets to be processed, sponsorship to be sorted for the coming season, registrations to process, coming season to prepare for and community work to deliver, means it’s going to be a busy summer. Some idiot has also increased the frequency of board meetings for the next three months. But we love it really. With three promotions on the bounce we’ve got another amazing season to look forward to, so we’re not resting on our laurels yet.

Watch this space. We might be in touch.
