Mulraney: Our ticket sales are on the up

ALLOA chairman Mike Mulraney has revealed that season ticket sales are up at the club ahead of the new season despite the doom and gloom surrounding Scottish Football and he is asking fans to continue to back Paul Hartley's men throughout the season.
Mulraney believes that the family season ticket offers are helping to attract families to Recreation Park and the Chairman insists it is the perfect place to eatch your football.
Mulraney told Advertiser Sport, "Season tickets sales are up a bit for ourselves and long may that continue. We have a great family offer on at the moment for season tickets and that has seen a 20% increase in sales and we would love to sell as many as we can before the new season begins.
"We are an exciting team to watch, we had a great season last year and this year looks set to be another exciting year for the club and it is a great place to come and watch your football.
"I would urge all our fans to rally round the club in these uncertain times in Scottish football."
Mulraney says that the Clyde groundshare issue is one that will rumble on right until the last minute but that the Wasps will be the perfect hosts for the men from Broadwood if required.
"At this stage Clyde FC will be groundsharing at the Recs only for this Saturday and because it is a cup game then it doesn't effect the League position in terms of the rules.
"From there we will wait and see if Broadwood is ready in time but they have three weeks before their first home league game to make the decision to groundshare or to get their ground ready. The SFL have given them their first league game away in order to give them as much time as possible.
"If they play a league game at the Recs then they have to stay there for at least half a season under the league rules. It would be good from a financial point of view for Alloa FC and we would certainly welcome them to Recreation park if that is the case."
The Alloa owner has also revealed that the only target he has given Paul Hartley for the coming season is to stay in the Division despite the Wasps being one of the favourites to win promotion.
"Paul's only target for this year is to keep us in the league. The team look as if they are coming together nicely but then it is always about a month into the season before you can see how your year is gonna go so we will have to wait and see."
