    For clarity on squad size and finances we have a squad as it stands of 17 players on professional contracts thus being paid. Our u20 squad, all players are unpaid.

    If there was no gate takings, if still expect the home team to pay for the pitch hire if it was at their venue and they didn't own the pitch, in the same way that if Dunfermline were playing at home (or our reserves, or youths, or women's side) we'd pay for the floodlights, ground costs, etc even if there was little or no crowd. If things were to be split 50/50 then I'd expect the game to be played at a mutually agreed neutral venue like Dalgety Bay astro or Oriam or wherever. Seems a bit odd to me that a team would "invite" a team to play them at their home ground then ask them to contribute, especially if it wasn't agreed in advance. How do you know we invited Whitburn and they didnt ask the u20's ? How do you know we didnt have a grass pitch with no cost to Whitburn but both teams wanted to play on the astro and agreed to pay half each? Why would Whitburn want to play at Dalgety Bay for the same price as playing at Kelty, surely Keltys ground is more appealing. Dunfermline have a turnover of over £1 million, heavily subsidised by SPFL/SFA prize money, we are very much self sufficient and until we get to the SPFL (if it was ever to happen) and the rewards that brings to compare Dunfermline to Kelty Hearts or even Cowdenbeath for that matter who pocket almost £100k prize money then its not fair.

    No wonder. Home team usually pays that from gate taking surely? If there is no crowd or whatever then that's the home team's responsibility. Fair enough if it was at a mutually agreed neutral venue, but wasn't this at Kelty? What gate taking? Jesus it was Kelty Hearts u20s Whitburn we’re playing not our senior side. The game would have been on a grass pitch with no payment, both teams agreed to share costs to use Astro pitch, the u20 team don’t get to use the pitch for free. Our senior team and u20 team are 2 different teams.

    The good luck would have done, stay classy. All the best to Cowden for the season, enjoy going to a few games when Kelty not playing, game today meant nowt other than a competitive game for the players and the managers to look at new things.

    How low do you want it £4 and £2? Id say the facilities we offer and the “effective” winning team that our manager puts out most weeks for us to watch then our pricing is more than fair tbh. I pay £12 around half a dozen times into Cowdenbeath matches a season, I paid £8 and £4 (£12) for me and my 6 year old son for the Dundee “friendly” during the week. We let in under 12s for free.

    Good game today, Kelty were missing Conrad Courts, Sean O’Neil, Ross Philp, Elliot Ford and captain Shaun Greig, all regular starters who play most weeks. Our Striker playing centre half and 5 U20s players finishing the game so friendly aside its the 1st win in our pre season campaign after 2 games against SPFL sides setting us up for another tough week ahead.
