Season ticket sales sit currently at 1,350 as United fans begin to look forward to the day that clarification is received on when football can open its doors once again to the only people that really matter – the fans.
The Brunton Park ‘socially distanced’ capacity is still to be finalised, and that all-important date is yet to be set, but that hasn’t stopped the excitement levels from rising both inside and outside the club.
“The level of season ticket sales is absolutely superb,” manager Chris Beech told us at his weekly press conference. “It doesn’t surprise me, when I’ve spoken to people individually you can sense how much they love their club. Credit to them.
“No matter what, who sits in the dugout, who owns the club, who writes about it, it’s always the supporters – that’s the game we play in.
“That’s what’s so difficult at the moment, because you can’t share those experiences with them in matches. That’s the whole point of a match, yes, to play, but to share the good and the bad.
“It’s highly commendable to everybody – amazing.”
