    Increase of £9 on a Season Ticket or just under 50p per game. Includes all pre-season home games so personally don't have any complaints.

    Can't expect it to stay at £12 forever, can't remember the last time it was increased.

    The concession price for a season ticket seated is £130, which I think is excellent value, just over £6 a game if I am right. Got to like it!

    Well, my opinion differs. Because my schedule doesnt allow me to be a season ticket holder or have a concession. I have to pay £13 quid a game. I begrudged paying £12 a game last season when I seen some of the drivel that was produced on the pitch. Clubs in this division charged less, and produced more entertaining football.

    If they had finished last season in the playoffs, I wouldnt have minded the extra rise, because i'd think the management had seen the light, but for the fact that last season the team totally underperformed for 3/4 of the season and then they raise the prices after an extremely disappointing season on the pitch?

    I also read the statement about the club trying to justify using the stand as an excuse for the rise, but if i'm not wrong, a lot of the cost of that will have been covered by grants, and the club wouldnt have contributed a huge amount towards this.

    Its like owning an underperforming business and suffering a loss in profit, then increasing your fees in the hope that you will make the loss up. Custom will soon drop if you dont perform.

    And just to add, it has been 5 years since a rise in the gate prices, but in that 5 years, what have we achieved, apart from a few mickey mouse trophies and a decent FA Cup run? Nothing at all.

    If they are going to justify this ludicrous decision to raise the prices next season, then they have to come out of the blocks hard and fast, because if they have a season that results in a lower table position, then the fans will just stay away and attendances will drop.

    Have to admit,I moaned a bit last season at paying £12,mainly at the team performances,but have always tipped my hat at the off pitch improvements.
    They have tried to justify the rise due to the ongoing costs of running a club and ground improvments ? ok,but lets see some improvements ON the pitch please,5 years of this drivel is depressing. I shall pay my £13 reluctantly,to start with,and see how it goes.

    No trip to Oxford but Lowestoft remain in the North. Bravo the conference.

    Looks like a weekender that one.

    The Greater Manchester triangle of chorley Stockport fc united will be a brilliant addition to the league. As well as gate receipts.

    Tougher league next season.

    Yeah, it will be a very tough league next season, but it was this season.

    Unless the striker issue can be resolved, I do think it will be another mid-table finish next season.

    I have nothing against Clayton and Thewlis. They are both very good players, but they just arent prolific enough.

    The 2015-2016 National North league looks like this:

    AFC Fylde
    AFC Telford United
    Alfreton Town
    Boston United
    Brackley United
    Bradford (Park Avenue)
    Chorley FC
    Corby Town
    Curzon Ashton
    FC United of Manchester
    Gainsborough Trinity
    Gloucester City
    Harrogate Town
    Hednesford Town
    Lowestoft Town
    North Ferriby United
    Nuneaton Town
    Solihull Moors
    Stalybridge Celtic
    Stockport County
    Tamworth
    Worcester City

    That is a tough, tough league for next season.

    Gainsborough have already made a big statement, signing Nathan Jarman and Matt Wilson from North Ferriby. I think Nathan Peat is following suit, if his twitter feed is anything to go by. So, they will be ones to look out for next season.

    Crikey, that is tough! I suppose its a bit late to apply for voluntary relegation? In all seriousness its hard to see more than 3 or 4 potentially 'weak' teams here: perhaps Lowestoft, Gloucester, maybe Ciurzon Ashton. But the 3 relegated teams are all (potentially) big names, Fylde, Chorley, Boston wont be getting worse, NFU have held on to most of their squad, Trinity seem to be investing, Stockport will surely make a challenge next season, FC United could do well, Stalybridge with Liam Watson in charge will surely improve, BPA might be investing, etc. etc.

    I really think that mid table would be optimistic at this stage. We do to invest in at least two strikers. The budget must currently be lower (a lot of the big earners shipped out), so we could afford to splash out. Should be great though!

    Looking forward to our first visit to Wetherby Road next season, £13 you say, chuff I stopped going when they put it up from a tenner, suppose once wont do any harm. Rolling Eyes
    I hope there wont be any segregation when we are in town, although I can understand if there is, the scrotes will probably be attracted as they usually are when we play in Leeds territory.
    Anyway just popped in to give you a little example of what to expect when you visit Broadhurst Park next season, this is a magazine video we do called Bring Your Own Ball, it's a special from the official ground opening last Friday night against Benfica.

    Hopefully the away end will be finished by then, but I reckon you'll be allowed to roam wherever you please.

    Long live FC United...my second favourite club! I will definitely make every effort to get to Broadhurst Park next season, unless its a Tuesday evening (maybe then an overnight in Manchester!).

    There will be free (maybe) buses on from the town centre on match day/nights, I'll post more details when the game is near.

    Really looking forward to filling one of your new stands with reds.
