Their website, if you can call it that, is one of those awful Pitcheroo things and has little information of any use if you want ground directions or admission costs.

Must congratulate them on their offer to supporters which has a document on their website saying a 2016/2017 season ticket is FREE except for a £10 administration fee.  cheers

Story was reported - https://www.theguardian.com/football/blog/2014/aug/14/potters-bar-town-football-club-free-season-tickets - the article has some interesting ideas about getting supporters through the gates.

Bit harsh to criticise a team 2 leagues below us who I'm sure rely on volunteers to run their website.

And the match info wasn't hard to find https://twitter.com/mgsecondary/status/780393959600291840

'Potter Bar'? There's more than one 'Potter', isn't there?

I see they lost 3-2 at home tonight. I think GO was planning to be there.

And more than one bar. Following on from Ashley's recent criticism of poor real ale availability at our away matches, I shall try and do better for Saturday, and my suggestion will be posted soon, but in my defence........Hampton, when the early birds arrived at the Jolly Coopers there were 4 ales on, but the stripes drained 3 of them. Oxford City, the solitary pump of Brakspear Gold was dry before we arrived. Hemel Hempstead, the Crabtree, had 3 ales on and we drained 2 of them fairly fast.
I blame Andy.....he drinks too quick. As for me.....just a swift half.

Cool

And I do think the Pitchero web sites are, almost without exception, dreadful.

If they're fully updated they are ok but 95% of them aren't. Most clubs at this level have them and they're hopeless.

Potters Bar could probably pay someone to create a better website if they weren't throwing free season tickets about Neutral

And to think that poor bloke used to get all the flack for finding pubs just a brisk walk from the ground...  No

Whereas we have a full time, fully paid Yuffie to update our website....
O wait. Simon is a volunteer also.
I hate the pitcheroo sites also but its more about the content that the presentation.
Thank gawd for Simon.

Mega game according to the local press. 150 travelling fans? Coach full plus exiles plus others c.100?

The coach, according to various reports, still has spaces....but no idea what the current cost is other than it is lower than the original. A regular update may help to get a few more to fill the coach?  scratch

Yuffers does a great job...but there are sections, such as the "Past Players" that isn't updated.  Would Yuffers like some help?

Good news for those hoping to travel on the coach, according to the Chronicle that is.
It appears that the little debate a few weeks back about the cost of travel and in particular the fact that members of the Supporters Club were in the concessions group, has reaped rewards for some.
The cost for non members this week is just £1, but I'm afraid members have to cough up £29.
Justice and common sense at last.
See you on the back seat Daz.

“We’re expecting 150-plus supporters to come across from Bath so it’s going to be a rowdy atmosphere and hopefully that can spur on our players"

Rowdy atmosphere?! Have they heard that the Pistachio Cowboy is coming with his well oiled entourage?

I'm not a great mathematician, but I assume that if the cost for minimum 22 was £30 each, that would mean the coach costing around £30 x 22 = £660. So if we get 30 on the coach, that would mean that the price was down to about £22 (total £22 x 30 = £660), and if we got 40, we could be down to about £17 (£17 x 40 = £680). I hope that this helps.

Sir Ged: Your logic is correct  but the pricing structure as decided by the Supporters Club isn't based on that as there are different prices for different supporters, depending on a variety of personal attributes and status.

SASCHA:   cheers  geek  lol!

I'm not a member of the SC

I don't go to away games

but

I'm still baffled

that people feel aggrieved

that the SC offers discounts to SC members

for a service that the SC organises and pays for

I know I shouldn't bite but I will. How is the pricing structure illogical?

The pricing structure isn't necessarily illogical just because Sir Ged's arithmetic is correct.  Your correlation isn't relevant. (I will bite) Wink  Razz

His response is nothing more or less than I expected. Of course he is entitled to his opinions about the SC's policies but by becoming a member he could actually influence its decisions, starting by attending the AGM on 22 October. Or he could even stand for election to the committee. Do you think he will or prefer to sit at his keyboard entertaining us with his witty posts?

I expect the membership fee puts him off. 

Or he subscribes to the Groucho Marx maxim
