Port Talbot Town Launch ‘Pay What You Want’ Scheme

Port Talbot Town are running a unique new initiative ahead of their match against Bala Town on Saturday, where spectators can pay what they want writes Matthew Burgess.

The initiative is the latest attempt from the club to boost matchday attendances.

“We’ve tried many things over the last few seasons with a number of different initiatives which have never really seemed to have taken off as we would have liked,” explained club chairman Andrew Edwards.

“This scheme is new, different and we’re hoping we can get a positive response from it.

“We’ve been disappointed with the lack of support so far this season and the players and management deserve better.

“We’re playing a good standard of football and it’s disappointing that the public don’t support the Welsh Premier League and its clubs.

“Port Talbot Town are a family-friendly club, we do a lot of work within the community and by running this initiative, we hope to get people in and change their perspective.”

A win against Bala Town on Saturday would leave the Steelmen within touching distance of qualifying for the Championship Conference in the final stage of the Welsh Premier League. Kick-off at the GenQuip stadium is at 2:30pm.
