Robbing barstewards!!! £40 a ticket PLUS £3 booking fee per ticket, PLUS a quid to send an email for final tickets. It was cheaper to go to Hudderfield v Forest Championship game at Wembley!

Given they weren't using Wembley I can't understand why they used a London stadium with the additional costs that would incur (that the fans ultimately end up paying)... answers on a postcard?

Fcuking ridiculous...I can never understand why the NL Play Off Final is not played at one of the major grounds in the Midlands, Pride Park or The Ricoh Arena for example.

I agree Olds.

I believe Glanford Park could also have been available.
Reasonably handy for both sides (good motorway linkage and all that)
And, let's face it. The rusted Iron are in desperate need of the Dosh. Not only that but it would give the locals an early preview of non league football.

The Mariners Trust have set up a fundraising page to help families towards the cost of going who otherwise wouldn't be able to afford the expense. £16k been raised so far.

We've already sold more than the capacity of that place.

Trust you will all be dropping off down the A181 for a quick brekky at "The Old Farmhouse" en route? (y)
