MORTON’S chief executive Dave MacKinnon has issued a rallying cry to fans to pick up their season tickets and help boost David Hopkin’s first-team budget.

MacKinnon said that sales so far had been ‘steady’, but admitted they were down 40 per cent from the same period last year.

A year ago the Ton had breached the 1,000 mark in their season ticket sales, which was then a 28 per cent increase on 2017-18.

MacKinnon says there have been several factors in the decrease, such as having no early bird offer this year.
But he says he hopes sales pick up in the next few weeks as the new campaign draws near.

He told the Tele: “Season tickets have been very steady sales-wise, we’ve sold about 60 per cent of the total we had last year at this point.

“But last year we had the early bird scheme, and everybody bought their tickets between May and June before it closed.

“There was very few were bought after that.”

The club are also set to announce a major initiative for season ticket holders in the near future.

Adult season ticket prices are £295, concessions are £225, while children tickets for 12-17-year-olds are priced at £99 and children aged 11 and under are free.
