Gainsborough Trinity are looking to the future by appealing to the town’s youngsters.
Kids under the age of 12 will be given free entry to the Blues’ final three home games of the season, when accompanied by a paying adult.
The scheme applies to the clash with Hednesford Town on the Northolme on Saturday, the visit of Oxford City on 12th April and the game against Histon on Bank Holiday Monday 21st.
Club director John Myskiw told the Standard that a previous offer for children had a major impact on the attendance.
He said: “It went down very well when we did it before, we had 120 children, and we normally get between 20 and 30 kids down there.”
“For every kid there was a paying adult, so it works well for the club, and we thought we might as well do it for the last three games.”
“Our hope is that they’ll all come back next season to support Trinity.”
Manager Steve Housham has been a busy man of late, not just with tactics and team selections, but raising the club’s profile in Gainsborough.
Myskiw paid tribute to the Blues boss: “Steve has been going into 12 or 13 local schools, he’s done a nice speech and brought out the mascot and the kids have loved it.”
“He’s put in a lot of hard work and it’s paying off.”
“People are shouting to me in the street about Trinity and our shark mascot, so it’s definitely working to raise the profile.”
