New King’s Lynn Town owner puts freeze on season tickets
New King's Lynn Town owner Stephen Cleeve has wasted little time in making his mark at The Walks.
Just 48 hours after taking over from Buster Chapman, Cleeve has announced that season ticket prices will be frozen next season for the first team, reserves and under-18s.
Cleeve has also decided that the under-16 concession will be extended to under-18s.
'With so many youngsters remaining now in education until 18 it is rare for the under 18s to go into full-time paid employment and we need to ensure that they can afford to come and support the Linnets,' he said. 'So we will extend the concession to everyone under the age of 18 allowing entry for just £4 and of course the under-11s will still gain free entry to The Walks.'
Cleeve will meet the fans for the first time on June 7, with a fans' forum at The Walks, along with first team manager Gary Setchell and reserves boss Robbie Back.
