CLUB supremo Ken Davy hopes Town's young guns will be playing to 9,000 season-ticket holders in a big play-off push next season.
The chairman has been delighted with almost 5,000 seat sales so far and hopes that number might get close to being doubled before the cut-price offer closes on Friday.
It would be an ideal backdrop to Peter Jackson's summer transfer activity, especially as Town fell short of break-even when finishing just a point outside the top-six in League I.
And Mr Davy - who intends to pay off Town's remaining £150,000 PFA debt to the former players by next March, three years ahead of schedule - has pledged to fund sensible additions to the Galpharm squad.
"I'm delighted with the progress that's been made at the club and season-ticket sales are very encouraging," said Mr Davy today.
"This backing from the fans is an absolutely essential part of our ability to take the club forward and we are all optimistic we will top last season's figure of just over 8,000.
"I don't think it will be too long, all being well, before we are getting a season-ticket total of 10,000 and, while I don't know whether we will get to 9,000 this season, it really would be wonderful if we could hit that mark."
Mini Terrier tickets, free to Under 8s, have proved popular, and the club owner hopes in the final week of sales that many Town fans will take up the chance of watching the Giants' three home games in June (against Warrington, Bradford and Wakefield) for a total of just £20 (£10 conc), especially following Friday's sensational win at Wigan.
Mr Davy has agreed Town budgets with Jackson and chief executive Andrew Watson for signings in the summer transfer window.
"We are not going to be bringing in half a dozen players because we don't need to," said Mr Davy.
"Our aim is to bring in some strength and perhaps a bit of maturity because, having just missed the top six this time around, we will obviously be striving to get into the play-offs at least next season.
"We have a clear goal set out to make Town a `top 30' club by the centenary in 2008 and, having got ourselves on track, we want to stay on track."
Mr Davy is predicting an exciting campaign with several "mouthwatering derbies" to look forward to, and he's confident Jackson's young squad can build on their powerful finish to last season.
"The most magnificent feature of the whole season was the way the young lads came through and not only did well but, in the latter part of the season, played with a maturity and consistency which belies their years," said Mr Davy.
"There was always a danger our jump to this division would prove too challenging, but we consolidated to start with and then came through very strongly - and I'm sure everyone would have settled at the outset for a top 10 finish.
"The way things developed augurs well for the club in future and the credit for bringing the young guns through goes to Gerry Murphy and his entire Academy staff and then Peter Jackson and his backroom team."
