A bit relief from the horror.

Prices are sky high now.
Can you remember how much you paid to get into your first game?
And what year it was?

I was taken to games as a kid and lifted over the turnstiles.
Then in the early eighties i started going myself.
Around 1982 i think it was 30p. Can't remember any cheaper than that.

I remember paying 3 for a ticket for the derby about 1984 , thought it was only going to be 2.50 .Had to walk from the ticket office on Easter road all the way to St Davids High school in Dalkeith in the pouring rain as i only had 3 .Four hours it took .

2'6d, and I think that was for an adult. Programme was 6d, or 20% of the gate price. Either the programmes back in the day, were expensive, or todays admissions are expensive?

Pretty sure it would've been a shilling (5p) for the boys' gate when I started going regularly in the 1950s.
I've kept a hold of my 1st season ticket book from '71 (cost me all of 6). In those days you could only get season tickets for the old centre stand and the north stand.
