Witton Albion Football Club have announced that as from Saturday, 12th October there will be a £2 charge for parking. Volunteers, GOLD Membership Card Holders & 60 Club members will be exempt from the charge.
What a damned shame, and what a very bad decision. I haven't been to any games for the past couple of years, but that has been because of personal circumstances, not because I have lost interest. I still follow the club very closely and had been looking forward to getting to some games later this season. On principle, I will now not be attending any games, and in addition I shall cancel my standing orders. Don't fleece people!
What a bonkers idea!! This has been done before. Caused gates to collapse, lots of issues with residents in Wincham as streets were blocked with football traffic and in all caused upset all round. It just isn't worth the loss of good will. If anyone has any sense this would be killed off right this minute.
What an absolutely stupid idea. The gates will drop, would any neutral fan come to watch Witton with this extra expense?, I think not. In fact I will not be going to the game today on principal. How many other fans will make this decision?
Well you can stick that up your arse! It's a piss take having to pay £11 for the entrance fee, £13 with parking for a non league game of football! The people making these decisions need to realise that we're not a Premier League club.
Reach for the stars
And if you don't grab 'em,
At least you'll fall on top of the world
Think about it
I am glad ''common sense'' has prevailed, amidst public clamour over the car-park charge! We (the fans) have apologised to South shields fans!, as they thought we were trying to 'con' them. Well done John.
