THE vast majority of Worcester City fans say they would buy a season ticket for £100 to support the club in the post-St George’s Lane era.

On the eve of their last calendar year at the century-old ground, City have been buoyed by the enthusiasm in the stands after canvassing opinion in a questionnaire.

Around 700 supporters were quizzed ahead of the home match against Workington earlier this month on proposed plans to share with Kidderminster Harriers next season.

Director Mike Davis said an overwhelming 95 per cent were interested in buying a season ticket for £100, an idea City have floated in a bid to boost the bank balance and keep as many supporters as possible.

Almost half of those interviewed were also considering buying a season ticket that included subsidised travel.

However, only 53 per cent expected to attend as many games next season as this and 30 per cent half as many. Five per cent said they would not attend any games when City leave the Lane in June.

Meanwhile, going ahead with last Saturday’s match against Gainsborough Trinity would have risked damaging City’s pitch for the rest of the season, says manager Carl Heeley.

The match was one of eight Blue Square Bet North fixtures called off.
