Matlock Town have announced that fans who purchased season tickets for the 2020/21 campaign will be able to use them without further charge for the upcoming 2021/22 season.

The Gladiators played only three home league matches in a season which was finally curtailed by the Football Association last week.

Matlock Chairman Bryn Apperley says it was the right thing to do.

“As we only played three times at home in the league and with the situation people are finding themselves in financially due to the pandemic, we feel it is only right to honour the season ticket for next season. The support we have from the Matlock public has been fantastic and we hope to see everyone back down at the Proctor Cars Stadium when football gets under way again. However should anyone wish to make a donation to the club, that would also be greatly appreciated.”

For any new potential season ticket holders, Matlock have frozen the price of season tickets , while general matchday admission charges will also remain the same.

Meanwhile even with the season finished and no football on the horizon, Matlock’s players will return to training next Tuesday night with lockdown restrictions being further relaxed from Monday.

Boss Paul Phillips says everyone is pleased to be able to meet up again.

“Touch wood there’ll be no third wave of this virus people have been talking about and things won’t change before next week. Getting together again is massively important, a return to some sort of normality without the matches of course. We’ve had remote contact but it’s good to be able to meet as a group for everyone’s well being as much as anything else. The training will be enjoyable sessions , I expect all of the lads to be there next week and it’s important to get everyone together bonding again, a massive weight will be lifted for us all, including me.”
