The chairman at one of King’s Lynn Town’s promotion rivals has slammed the decision to increase ticket prices for the forthcoming clash between the sides.
Kettering Town chief David Mahoney has described Lynn’s’s decision to increase their admission prices for the Easter Monday clash with Kettering Town at The Walks as “sad”. Lynn have announced that the huge clash against the Poppies will be a Category B match with admission £15 for adults, £12 Concessions (senior, disabled, student) and £4 for those aged 12-18. Under-11s have free entry, while there is an additional £1 for unreserved seating which applies to all.
Mahoney told the Northamptonshire Telegraph: “Personally I think it’s sad that King’s Lynn have taken this decision. I have total sympathy with both sets of fans and understand that some of our supporters have already decided that whilst they will attend, they won’t arrive at the club until shortly before kick-off and won’t be spending any extra funds on drinks, food or matchday programmes.
“So while King’s Lynn will get their £15, they won’t be getting a lot more. Making the books balance in our league is hard and having a varied pricing structure for matches isn’t new but can this price really be justified at our level?”
