Newton Aycliffe FC have announced their pricing structure as they bid to improve on last season’s disappointing campaign which saw them narrowly avoid relegation with an 11th-hour escape.
A slight increase on prices – the first for two years – should enable boss Allan Oliver to compete with the league’s bigger spenders as Aycliffe aim to provide supporters with a more successful campaign this time around.
Boss Oliver has already lost star defender Darren Craddock to neighbours Shildon, and has seen several close-season targets join clubs elsewhere in the Northern League, as the race to rebuild hots up.
Matchday prices have risen by £1, with adult admission costing £6 and concessions £4. Concessions are deemed those aged between 12-16 inclusive, and the over 65’s.
As per the ‘kids go free’ incentive from last season, under 12’s will once more be permitted for free, on a game-by-game basis.
Season tickets are available and fans are encouraged to take advantage of the bulk saving.
Adult tickets will be priced at £100 (a saving of £26 on a game-by-game basis) while concessions tickets will be priced at just £60 (a saving of £24).
Supporters have to contact club Secretary Steve Cunliffe (07872 985501) or Soccer Representative John Gaskarth (07590 925469) to purchase their season tickets.
• Pre-season friendlies at Moore Lane Park will be priced at £3 for adults and £2 for concessions, with the exception of the Darlington friendly which will be priced as per 2013-14 league games.
