For the rearranged fixture against Stranraer on Tuesday March 17, Stirling Albion are reducing adult admission to £5 and all other categories (over 65s, students, under 17s) will be admitted free of charge. Under 12s already go free at all home games.
SAFC Chairman Stuart Brown said: “The Executive Board appreciate that this has been, to say the least, a very difficult season for our supporters as we continue to strive for our first league win at Forthbank and, in recognition of this, we have decided to cut admission charges as above.
“It is always difficult to get people to attend midweek games and I hope this initiative will encourage more of our regular fans to come along and hopefully some new faces as well.
“I fully understand that such initiatives do not necessarily sit well with our season ticket holders but, given the circumstances, I hope they will accept the thinking behind it. No one appreciates their continuing support more than me and I extend my thanks to each and every one of them, in anticipation of this understanding and, of course, their continuing support.
“We will also be holding a charity bucket collection inside the ground and our nominated charity is the Meningitis Research Foundation. Many of you will be aware that Graham Douglas, the Club Executive and Supporters Trust Secretary, recently suffered a meningitis attack that left him partially paralysed.
“Mercifully, thanks to the dedicated care he received in Glasgow Royal Infirmary, Graham is now home and well on the way to a full recovery. I trust everyone will agree that a collection on behalf of MRF to help further meningitis research is a fitting cause.”
