Having had plenty of interest in the Woods’ innovative Super Season Ticket deal, the club have decided to extend the deadline for purchasing your ticket for 2016/17 to the opening day of the season, Saturday 6th August 2016.
Chairman Ian Barry explained the decision: "We launched the offer quite late last summer but were still quite pleased with the take-up of the new Season Ticket deal. This time, with the promotional help of Oscar & Hunt Estate Agents, we have been able to get the message across to local residents a little earlier and we have managed to attract plenty of newcomers to the deal. However, we still want more local people to realise what we have on offer at the club, both on and off the field.
“Supporters were highly entertained by the football we played last season, finishing in seventh place in the table as well as winning the Middlesex Senior Cup and reaching the semi-finals of the League Cup" said the proud Chairman, who is in his tenth year at the Woods. "But we also want more people to use the superb. modern facility we have in the clubhouse too so we are extending the availability of the deal and would urge lots more of you to take up the offer.
“Even if you only plan to come to a handful of games it still makes financial sense and also enrols you as social members of the club! Additionally, it provides free admittance to the home Suburban and Ryman Youth League games, so is ideal for parents of players expected to be playing in those teams, and they can also come to watch the first-team that their boys should be aspiring to.
"A warm welcome awaits everyone who comes to join us at games this season," Ian added. "We hope that every football fan in the area will take the opportunity of making Northwood FC their local club and show their support."
All those who have already ordered their Super Season Ticket can pick them up from the first home game of the season. And if you haven't applied yet, why not do so now? Click here for more information, and to apply for your Woods Super Season Tickets!
