With the old season barely having finished, Barnet have already gained a club record for the new campaign – that of season tickets sold. For the 1st time in its 120 year history, the club has sold over 500 season tickets.

While this is double last season’s total, it is still some way short of the 1000 target set by Chairman Tony Kleanthous when he launched the ‘early bird’ cheap season tickets, costing only £8.50 for an adult – easily the cheapest price in London to watch League Football. As a result of this, the offer on these tickets has been extended from the end of this month to June 13th and has been advertised in the local Times Group newspaper.

It is thought that a failure to reach the 1000 target would make it significantly harder to hang onto stars such as Jason Puncheon and Albert Adomah over the summer transfer window, so all Bees fans will be no doubt praying for this new record to be extended a little further.
