SAINTS fans have responded to chairman Stewart Gilmour’s call to snap up season tickets . . . but the figures are still down on this time last year.
Worried club chief Gilmour revealed at a meeting with supporters earlier this month that sales had slumped by 300 – costing the club a five-figure sum.
That, along with worries that TV broadcasters Sky and ESPN would pull the plug on Scottish football following the newco Rangers fiasco, led to fears that St Mirren could slump into administration.
But, following Gilmour’s appeal for support, season ticket sales have shot up.
Saints general manager Brian Caldwell revealed: “We are still slightly down on last year’s figures but the good news is that a good number of fans have responded to the call to buy season tickets and we hope more will follow suit.”
Meanwhile, tickets for St Mirren’s first two home games of the new season – against Inverness Caley Thistle on Saturday, August 4, and Hibernian on Saturday, August 18 – are now on sale.
They can be bought from the ticket office at St Mirren Park or by going online at www.smfctickets.co.uk.
