Gary Wilkinson can’t wait to bring his son along to The Vic for more games next term after the Club’s offer of free Season Tickets to Under 12s persuaded him to sign-up for 2018/19.
On Wednesday we confirmed a freeze in prices for the new campaign and also unveiled plans to introduce the Under 12s offer which allows them to come for free alongside a full-paying adult.
Gary, who lives in the Dyke House area of the town, couldn’t believe his luck when he saw details of the deal and was among the very first to take advantage.
Having introduced his eight-year-old son, Oliver, to the world of Pools last term, his mind was made up on buying Season Tickets once he saw the Club’s offer for Under 12s.
“I used to come quite regularly and I’ve been brining my young son – and now I’ve been able to get him his first Season Ticket,” a proud Gary told us after picking up his two Season Tickets for the Mill House Stand.
“I brought Oliver with me to a few matches last season and he loved it so as soon as I saw the offer I got myself down to The Vic to get our Season Tickets.
“I got to a few games last year but didn’t have a Season Ticket but this year I was always thinking about getting one – and when I saw the Under 12 deal it was just a massive bonus.
“I used to come to Pools with my dad years ago so it’s going to be great bringing Oliver to The Vic for every game and both of us are already really excited.
“I’m looking forward to watching the World Cup but I can’t wait for next season and I just have a feeling we could be up there in with a shout of promotion.”
Free Under 12s tickets must be claimed in conjunction with a full-paying Adult or Senior who is the parent, grandparent of legal guardian of the child.
