    Read it's going to cost £18 pay on the day to watch St Albans!

    Must be almost as much as a lot of lower league clubs .

    There is talk of fans boycott etc .

    What do other teams in Non league charge ?

    Solihull Moors was £15 when I went in December, although if I had took my Birmingham ST it'd have been a tenner. Not too bad for a side pushing for promotion to the Football League, even though they lost 1-0 to Barrow that afternoon.

    It's usually a tenner at the level below St.Alban's, which I don't mind paying as the local sides at that level need the money, except maybe Stourbridge with all the money from their cup runs in recent years.

    Seems incredibly steep, are they in some financial trouble? Southend pre-game tickets are £18. It's £12 to watch Concord in the same division and most other clubs are a similar mark.

    Well don't think so - they have wealthy enough owners.

    Some fans have said the club are taking advantage of the fact St Albans is quite an affluent area but then any fan would probably go and watch Arsenal/Watford etc for their football...
