Sue Horton can got the surprise of her life when she turned up to buy her Season Ticket on Friday lunchtime only to be told she was our 2000th for 2019/20!
The Cyril Knowles Stand regular called in to sign-up for the new campaign prior to our Same Seat Reservation deadline later and was delighted to be told that her purchase took us the latest milestone.
“I’ve been coming to watch Pools since I was 5!” Sue told us.
“My dad was in the Navy but whenever he was home he would always take me along to the match at Pools.
“I obviously didn’t get to come every week but I loved it when I got the chance and I became quite fanatical about the Club.
“I got a real shock when Kate (Ticket Office Manageress) told me that I was 2000 – my first reaction was that I didn’t have time for a photo! Haha!
“My friend was teasing me last night for leaving it until late to buy my ticket so she will be laughing when she sees me on the website as the 2000th ticket!”
These days Sue attends games with her friends, Sue Crump and Lynn Ellis, and this is now her 20th consecutive campaign as a Season Ticket holder.
After several years of struggle on the pitch, Sue reckons that the fresh season could be the one that sees things turn for Pools and can’t wait for the action to get underway.
“Bring it on – I am counting down the days,” she admitted.
“To get over 2,000 Season Ticket holders already is amazing and that can really help us next year because the atmosphere at the end of last year was brilliant – I loved the drummer, he was fab.
“I think it could be a good year for us and we could do well in 2019/20 – but I do say that this time every year!”
Our Early Bird deadline is next Friday so you now have a week to take advantage of our amazing deals on Season Tickets.
