Option 2: £135 per season inclusive of all match fee, only avaliable untill 30th September.

Option 2 benefits the regular player as after the 20th game played all subsequent match fees for that season are saved. Many players find a patron to cover this cost and in return, the patron will be invited to have lunch at a home game as well as other bennefits. The cost is £135 and if the patron is a business it can be treated as a donation with no VAT element.
