“We are already excited about the next campaign and season ticket sales are very important to us at this time, providing a cash injection as we look to strengthen the squad over the summer.
“Having held our gate prices static for some time now, we have unfortunately been forced to increase them slightly for next year due to the overall running costs of the Club going up.
“However, as a thank you to our loyal fan base, we are giving our existing season ticket holders the chance to save up to 20%, by both grabbing our early bird offer and by getting a friend to buy a season ticket at the same time.
“Our Manager Stewart Petrie and his coaching staff have created renewed optimism and positivity around the Club and so I really hope people take advantage of our generous offers.
