I normally have nothing but praise for the way Swindon Town has been run since the club was taken over by Andrew Fitton. Thinking where Swindon may now be had Fitton not taken over the club is a frightening thought. Gratitude is something I have aplenty for Fitton and other members of the board.
However, I believe interim chairman Jeremy Wray has made an error of judgement on the new ticket prices. Admission for the side stands is £25 for an adult whilst tickets for the Town End are on sale for £19; a rise of £5 and £3 respectively.
You would think after relegation last season that once promised so much that the club would looking to attract supporters. £25 is an awful lot of cash to part with to watch League Two football against the likes of Macclesfield and Hereford.
Managers and players alike bemoaned the lack of atmosphere so this action is somewhat contradictory. It's impossible to make any noise when surrounded by empty seats. The gates could be largely reduced meaning no actual increase in revenue.
