Last week Reds boss Danny Grainger called on his players to put their foot down and kick on towards their aim of promotion.
Following that the club have now introduced a series of initiatives aimed at boosting attendances at Borough Park over the last 9 home games of the season.
Crowds have been very good so far with a slight average increase over last year but the aim is to build on that as the season reaches its climax.
Vice Chairman Richard Lewthwaite said, “We want the whole area to get behind Danny and the lads as they push for promotion. Last year we saw big increases in attendances over the last few games of the season and we’d really like to emulate that again this term. The team really value the backing they get and they deserve everyone’s support.”
” We’re getting the ball rolling with a nice simple ‘Bring ya Marra to the match’ when we play Newcastle on Saturday. We are just encouraging fans to bring a mate or two along with them it’s that simple.”
“We’ll be following that up with a Grassroots Day, an open invitation to all local youth teams to attend in their team colours, as well as Non League Day on March 25th and our Easter Eggstravaganza on Easter Saturday among others.”
These initiatives will run alongside our existing hugely successful Centenary Card scheme which has seen over 5000 free season tickets issued to local children.
There are still a few of these cards available if any schools, community groups or junior clubs want them just contact the club and we will get them to you.
