It's been the case, as far back as I can remember, that season tickets were valid for all home friendlies, except testimonials.

Pretty sure that stopped a few season back,the time they changed the pricing structure for season tickets

Would that not have been due to the 500 person restrictions and the club let season ticket holders in for free as they paid for a previous years ticket they did not use? 

Possibly, but I did a quick site search and friendlies were included pre-Covid too. Here’s the advert from 2018.

I've not had a season ticket for a number of years but it was always my understanding that friendlies were included. Not sure I'm willing to fork out another 

£20 to take the kids to see half a team take on QOS. Will give it a miss.

I'm sorry but the price of a season ticket is cheap when your paying £20 to get In. I remember the times if you missed one or at most 2 games it was pointless buying a season ticket. If you bought the early bird you will probably afford to miss 4 or 5 games and still break even. I'm sorry but that's the way it us. The club need money to pay wages (cough)

It’s a steal compared to East Fife, can’t believe what their board are charging for League 2 football.

Would it not make sense to continue to take orders/payments/notes of interest for the strip online, rather than guess at how many more to order? The iron is hot right now.

Got a feeling that was suggested last time this happened but I might be wrong. It’s definitely something the Rovers should consider in the future though.

I think our sitting midfielders are going to be very important for us this season as unless we get a loanee in, we WILL be going with Berra/Dick until Lang is back . 

Much like last season, one of our full backs will also sit back a little, though it'll be the right hand side this time with Millen, IF we sign Brody Paterson.  So Dick will cover the left channel as teams counter-attack us with effectively 3 centre halves and 2 sitting midfielders.

Orders are placed months in advance for kits.

I'm happy with the deal for the season ticket, no complaints at all. All I'm saying is I'm not forking out another £20 to take the kids to a friendly game against a team from the league below.

Pretty much my thoughts.

My laddie is now classed as a young adult, despite still being at school, and therefore would be charged a tenner as well.

I would have had to go straight from work, therefore would probably have bought some food, a couple of soft drinks in the 200 club and some 50/50s, meaning I'd probably spend somewhere between 10 and 15 quid.

The reality is that the £20 admission money would be better kept for a cup tie / important away game later in the season, therefore I'll be giving tomorrow a bodyswerve.

Absolutely size up. I'm generally XL in most t-shirts. Last season I tried both XL and 2XL and they were still helluva tight. Have had to plump for 3XL now. I can't say there's much difference in size from last seasons top and this seasons top.

Just picked up my top order, didn’t get either kits last year to wear as such, the girlfriend got me the home kit signed by the team for birthday but wasn’t too fond of either last season. This home kit really grabbed me though, no over the top shite, also good to see no stick on sponsor on the back for the carrs seen as all my other rovers tops are now missing them. Surprised not to have seen any transfer talk recently? Is Murray really thinking dick and Berra at the back until Lang is back?

Should do that before ordering them. Find out shirt size of people who want football tops. That would save on being left with tops and running out of popular sizes.

If they put a survey up asking folk 1. Do you buy Rovers tops? 2. What size(s) do you require? 

Then they’ll at least be sorted for this time next year. 

Unless the sizes are all to f**k, as some have mentioned. Then they’ll be left with a lot of stock.

I find a Large in football tops is usually 40” to 42” and fits fine, but some Larges are 41” to 43” and look a bit baggy. Not into those ones.
