The early bird season ticket promotion can only be described as a success as the final sales figure was just short of what the club sold for the whole of the previous season. Once the fixtures and the squad details are released the club expect another surge in sales. To those supporters who have purchased a season ticket already many thanks your support at this time of the year is very much appreciated.
The fixtures are scheduled to out on the 5th July but with Rushden and Diamonds appealing against the decision to expel them from the Conference there could quite easly be a delay but we will keep our fingers crossed that we receive them as planned by the League. We have requested AFC Telford or Alfreton for the Christmas /New Year fixtures but are in the hands of the fixture planners to who we will play. One thing which may give a clue to where we will be on the opening day of the season as it is a Police requirement that we are opposite to Burton Albion. If they are at home on the 13th August we will be away (or should be!!)
The news of signings is very quite but do not worry it is very busy behind the scenes as Marcus assembles the squad. A host of players have been interviewed and now a few are putting pen to paper but as they cannot be registered until the 1st July we will not be releasing details until confirmation has been received from the FC and FA.
We are afraid that we have no news on the home friendlies for the 30th July and 2nd August as with the problems at our Premiership and Championship close neighbours discussions have been delayed but we will keep trying.
