Well done to this fella. His pictures are actually pretty good 😊👍

My wee boy is currently drawing pictures of Rugby Park. Selling them 10p a picture, to try to raise the sum of 50p, to donate to the K*lmarnock football club so they can finally get a bar of soap. (His words, 5 years old 😂

The pictures all look similar to this....

I'm planning to go to Lancaster City this Saturday, just waiting to see if it goes ahead with fans. They usually sell tickets online and have quite a good video showing how the Covid rules operate within the ground.

I was over there for a game a couple of years back - it's a tidy wee ground with a lovely view. Nice city too.

Hope it goes ahead for you.

Surely the above is being done gratis by your builder director and completely unrelated to the club's cashflow?

I don't think its ever been confirmed explicity. Is anything done gratis anymore?

I'd imagine the club are still paying for design costs; materials; equipment hire etc. I suspect Ashleigh are providing the labour gratis but the club will be paying for some of the elements.

Also David Smith may even be funding it himself in full. I know he's the biggest shareholder at Ashleigh and MD but I'm sure his holding is less than 50% which may mean Ashleigh wouldn't cover it gratis in the first place. It would depend on the position of their board. I'm not so sure they'd be happy to swallow several hundred thousand of investment for the club especially given they will be facing challenges from covid as well. Admittedly, construction seems to havr bounced back fairly quickly.

Admittedly the above is 'reasoned' conjecture on my part. I don't actually know. However, if its Smith's money or the club are paying then if cashflow is an issue they'll pause the 'vanity' projects (in the sense they are not must do) and reroute the cash to day to day expenditure.

Just bought a ticket for Saturday. They said that last night's FA Cup game had a "largely favourable" review from the Police but a couple of issues were identified which means the capacity has been reduced further. They won on penalties last night, the bedlam that probably followed might have been the "issue"!

Great job by the club shop. My top arrived today and also got my Player Of the Year t-shirt which was a nice touch. Well done on that!

Also, the large fitted me. It is a bit more snug than the addidas but not too bad. Diet cancelled.

The club are in a really difficult position with regards PPV for league games and how much to charge. Adult Season Ticket is £230 for 13 home league games which works out at £17.70 per game so they can’t really charge any less than that for PPV or season ticket holders may feel a bit annoyed. 

ETA: I suppose the club could maybe give Season ticket holders the league cup and Scottish cup games free but not sure how many of them there will be.

£15 for the Accies game ? I’m up for that . Pardon my age but how does all this work? Do you watch the game on your phone or tablet or can you hook it up to a smart tv . Genuinely lost with all this tech stuff .

On the pricing , like the Morton boy said , if your looking for value for money watching Scottish football your at the wrong door . If you want a club for your kids and grand kids to follow that doesn’t involve battles in Ireland some 300 years ago then get your hand in your pocket and stop whining . Of course if you can afford to .
