MRS is a regular youth club on match day .

(I reckon the middle sections average age is in the mid 50s.)

I could not have afford to buy another season ticket for my kids under 16 if it was not for the reduction. They still attend paying full price now.

Not sure we will see this but I guess using the Tech End then adults are £12 and U18 4 so thats an £8 average - are my maths right?

Hmm doesnt look right at 50/50 but other stands will move this the U18 way with dearer adults prices.

Does anyone remember the average price from STs the WST said at the meeting?
Was Pay on the gate between £9-10?

Although it wont be on a government or council document, but giving kids something to do for a reachable price on a Saturday is a good thing in my book.
I agree but when you have kids running around and not watching the football it's incredibly annoying

Agree - remember back in 1970 - visiting Everton - upper tier of the Gladys Street end had a cage like structure termed 'the boys pen'.
Lots of fathers chucked their kids in there and collected them after the game.
Resembled a cramped cage of hamsters in an old style pet shop window.

So we shouldn’t help the young families who want to bring their children regularly? I think we have a few spare seats most Saturdays so filling them with youngsters makes total sense. We could do with a few in the moan road to lift the atmosphere.

I remember being in the boys pen on corner of Tech end / Mold Rd January 1963 versus Liverpool in the snow. Not sure how long after that they closed it.

I would rather have more going on for the kids and youngsters.

Are we still doing the 5/6/7 a side at half time - would like to see this limited a bit so the fans watched just 3 games. Maybe 1 in front of each stand and it might be a bit more personal to each 1.

Penalty comps Tech End for charity.

What about school tickets - limit to 2/3 schools a game to keep it fresh.

Market the family tickets better and the MRS family section (maybe 2 adults and 3 kids £26, 3 for £29... ) to encourage more in. OK its a free one but might be 3 or 4 of them next game. Would like to see more price details on back page of leader on Thu/Fri/Sat.
Does Wrex do HT photo opportunities in that part of the ground?

How does catering look for kids. Fritas for a £1 is that a deal?
What about all the sweets? Although I will start buying them - Mars, Twix, choc bars, bags fruit pastilles, fruit gums, haribo - what do we sell and is it reasonably priced?

We need to take as much revenue as possible on a match day.
The £1 is lost if its not spent at the game, make the prices reasonable and fans will buy especially kids.

Also sort out 1 big kiosk under Tech end in place of Jonseys bar and position it at the back. Use kop barriers to make queue lanes and paint a stand behind line couple of foot from counter to make it orderly.
OH - Open on time not 5 mins after HT whistle as wasting selling time.

I would like to see us do more to make the matchday experience better for the young teens. Generally they go in the tech end so why not convert part of the space underneath into a burger bar or something similar

Fully agree with all of the above. The opportunities for a football club are very unique as we can offer cost free prizes such as warm up with the subs or as you say take a penalty which kids and adults would love.
Rather than making a cage for the kids perhaps we should have a miserable section where booing and slagging off of certain individuals 20 seconds into the game is encouraged ?
