TOWN today broke their record for season-ticket sales.
The Galpharm club have only 24 hours left for fans to snap up £100 seats for the 2008-09 centenary season.
But as the countdown continued this morning, the old Leeds Road best figure of 14,058 season-ticket holders was all set to be smashed.
It’s fantastic news for manager Stan Ternent and a new-look League I squad, not to mention supremo Ken Davy and chairman-elect Dean Hoyle, who are bankrolling the offer and Town’s bid for promotion.
Club spokesman Alisdair Straughan said: “The support for our cut-price scheme has been fantastic.
“And it would be great in this last 24 hours of the offer if we could hit the 15,000 mark, because that would double last season’s figure.”
He added: “The offer, which is the best in the Football League, has caught the imagination of fans locally and all over the world.
“We hoped it would be a big success when we launched it and the fact we’ve reached an all-time record is something the supporters can be very proud of.
“It’s a historic season for the club and we should have a tremendous atmosphere inside the Galpharm for all our home matches next season.”
The cut-price offer ends at 5pm tomorrow with Ternent’s side already guaranteed their biggest backing since the club moved to the Galpharm in August 1994.
Their best average at the stadium is 14,029 for the Championship campaign of 1999-2000, when there were 9,478 season-ticket holders.
