This week, the Buxton Advertiser is offering Buxton FC supporters reduced entry to Saturday’s clash against Halesowen Town at the Silverlands (3pm).

The BBC’s recent Price of Football study showed the mass imbalance of pricing structures by teams up and down the country, with regards to ticket prices, memorabilia and food and drink within grounds.

Buxton’s impressive form this season has seen crowd figures rise and as a result the club currently sit near the top of the Evo-Stik Premier Division.

Now, the club and the Advertiser have teamed up to offer supporters a saving on their matchday experience.

Simply pick up a copy of this week’s paper (dated October 23), cut out the voucher and hand it to the turnstiles on Saturday to receive a £1 discount on matchday prices.

Bucks’ chief Martin McIntosh believes that there is a correlation between the team’s performances and good crowds.

He said recently: “It’s really encouraging to see more fans get behind us.

“We’ve got to capitalise when things are going well.

“Having a big crowd behind us is always excellent and we thank them for their support.

“It’s so much better for the players when we have a good crowd in.

“This place would be fantastic if we could get 500 or 600 so we need to keep banging that drum.”

Other clubs in the High Peak have also laid on ticket initiatives in recent weeks.

Earlier this month, New Mills branded their fixture against Prescot Cables as a ‘Pay what you want day.’

The offer resulted in the second-highest attendance of the season at Church Lane, with plenty of punters taking up the offer.

Glossop North End also got in on the act during their clash against Bacup and Rossendale.

The Hillmen put on free entry for all under-16s attending with an adult.

Chairman Dave Atkinson believes the scheme will pay dividends when it comes to finding the next generation of North End supporters.

He said: “It’s been great to see so many new faces this season.

“The team have been playing some great stuff and achieving tremendous results, and I think word of mouth has been getting around the town.

“We’ve also seen lots of families coming, and we hope that this offer might encourage more parents or grandparents to bring their kids to watch their local team in action.”
