Marcus pledges support for squad development as he looks for fortress Portman Road

Marcus Evans says Mick McCarthy will be fully supported in his plans to develop the squad over the summer in a bid to take Town up. 

The Club owner has written to the Blues’ supporters in the season ticket brochure that has gone out to all season ticket holders and reiterates his belief that Mick can bring the good times back to Portman Road.

“Mick McCarthy’s performance since taking over as manager has been fantastic,” writes the owner.

“Having taken over a team adrift at the bottom of the league, he has moulded a tough-to-beat and highly competitive team and if his results are multiplied over the course of the season, we are pretty close to Play-Off form.

“If next year is to be our year, we need everyone behind the team and for our fans to help make Portman Road a fortress.

“I am as committed as ever to getting the Club promoted and Mick will be fully supported in his plans to develop the squad over the summer.  We have the manager who can take us up and we need your support to get us there. 

“In recognition of your support, the Club will continue with its offer for season ticket holders in 2013/14 to be provided with half-price season tickets the following year, if we gain promotion to the Premiership.”

Prices have been frozen for season tickets holders who purchase online by the early bird deadline of midday on April 12, while those who used the direct debit scheme for 2012/13 have been automatically renewed at the frozen prices for 2013/14.   

It’s the seventh time in 11 years that prices have been frozen, with the Club also continuing the 12 month direct debit payment facility that was launched last year as well as introducing a new three year season ticket, locked at this year’s price. 

Fans aged 11 and under can again purchase a season ticket for just £10, while the average cost a season ticket holder will pay to watch Town in League action at Portman Road next season is £14.70 per game.

Prices for supporters who do not renew or purchase online will be subject to an increase of five per cent.
