Relegated Magpies Announce New Match Day Offers, Kids Go Free!


6:06pm 25th April 2014

Dorchester Town have announced kids can go free to all their home games next season.

The price of an adult ticket has gone down to £10 too and there are discounts for NHS staff and Armed Forces personnel as the club builds for a new campaign in the Southern Premier League after being relegated from the Skrill South following a disappointing season.

Chairman Neal Butterworth explained that the free entry for juniors is a move to grow the club’s support over the long-term and encourage more children to watch live football in an era when most have been priced out of the upper echelons of the game;

"We have been planning for next season for some months and one of the key areas we wanted to address was attracting the next generation of fans down to the Avenue Stadium. With more football on television than ever before and the sky high prices in the professional game, children are missing out of the excitement, passion and emotion that only live football can provi

"Realistically we know that we can’t compete with the likes of United, City and Arsenal for young people’s support, but our aim is to encourage the region’s young population to enjoy the unique experience of live football that we were all brought up on, and be proud to call Dorchester their home town club as they grow up."

The Magpies play their final game of the season against Ebsfleet away, tomorrow (Saturday 26th April)..
