It's Time To Stand Up And Be Counted

The race to 6,000 season tickets is on and should we not reach this target, Swindon really should be ashamed.

For years fans have complained about the board, and ticket prices as reasons for staying away from the County Ground but that has all changed now.

We have a new ambitious, but realistic board in charge and the ticket prices have dropped considerably to less than 10.00 a game should we sell 6,000 season tickets.

As of reporting this, Town`s last official update was that the club had sold 2,261 season tickets in just over 3 weeks. That`s good but we need to pick up the pace a bit now.

Perhaps part of the reason sales have not soared is because pay-day for most people was at the tail end of last week or beginning of this week so we are hopeful sales pick up.

Port Vale have reached their target of 5,000 season ticket sales under very different circumstances and they did it early. They had a poor season last year and were relegated to League 2. Neighbours Stoke City, who are just 5-10 miles down the road have just been promoted to the Premier League which is surly a much better proposition than League 2 football. If Port Vale can sell 5,000 season tickets under these circumstances surly we can sell 6,000?

Some would argue that Huddersfield have sold 16,000 season tickets, True, but tickets are only 100.00.

There is no reason why the people of Swindon should not come out in full force and support the team, Perhaps one or two signings will get people excited again.

Promotion to the Championship is the aim as already stated, although the bookies seem to think a relegation dog fight could be the reality?

Fans are excited and happy that the clubs historical debt is now a thing of the past. It's now time to re-pay the faith to Andrew Fitton and co.

It`s time to stand up and be counted and support your local team.

Hope you can sell 6,000 and get the ground at least half full for home games.
