Due to the anticipated very high demand received from all Supporters Clubs, we will receive only 13 of the 42 tickets that we requested.
These tickets will therefore be allocated on merit order to the 13 members who are highest on the HDCSC Internal Loyalty Point List. Those members are listed below in GREEN, with the remaining members who did not make the allocation cut listed in RED. Monies will be refunded asap (by today or tomorrow) to all those who were unsuccessful so that they can then try to purchase their own tickets when they go on sale online (7am Monday 10th September to Season Ticket Holders, then 7am Monday 17th September to True Blue Members). I will do all I can to try and also help to purchase people's own tickets online, but unless otherwise advised in the first instance pleased attempt to purchase your own tickets online. A maximum of four tickets can be purchased online at the same time, so if you have friends & family that were also on the list then add them to your Friends & Family list so that you may be able to purchase theirs for them at the same time.
Club travel may also now be a problem if we do not end up being able to source enough tickets, because the 17 seater minibus that the Supporters Club would have hired for a now reduced number of members with tickets has already been booked and is therefore now not available.
On the positive side though, if the total number of tickets that can be sourced both through the Supporters Club and online can reach beyond the early 20's … then we could look to hire a mini-coach with a driver similar to what was hired for the Community Shield match at Wembley. Otherwise cheap group train tickets are available from Southern Rail that will take a group of four people travelling together from Hastings to Southampton and back for £10 per person.
Finally could the below members who are listed in green as the first 13 on the list, please text Mark B back this evening to confirm that you would still like a match ticket - because otherwise tomorrow morning's resubmitted reduced allocation ticket order will then include the next on the list in order of merit.
Thanks again everyone.
