Much is being made of the fact that West doubled their prices . £5 up to £10. Most clubs in the NL. charge a £5. While everyone is condeming West Auckland , I notice no one has mentioned that Darlington charge £8 for their home games. So at the end of the season which club has raked in the most cash per head off the spectators..................................Greedy Darlington.!!!

A nice touch but that does not explain when Darlington came into the N.L. they felt the need to charge on an average 50% more to watch their home matches than any other team. The only reason I can think of is greed. I don't condone what West have done and as I posted ealier Consett had a good crowd when Darlo visited [ nowhere near the 1,000+ Supporters I see regulary quoted ] but still a very good pay day for Consett. Maybe it would be a good idea to have different turnstiles and charge the home supporters the usual price and Darlo's the £8 they charge visitors.

no argument there, West were asked to reduce it to £8 by Mike Amos but refused.

Nice video clip on this page (was on MotD 2 last night) re the price Arsenal were asking man City fans to pay (£62) Glad to see 900 told them to stuff it. BBC Sport - Man City fans' ticket snub backed by Premier League boss
