The local side says it has been left “overwhelmed” by the efforts of supporters to back the club despite various uncertainties.

The Donate a Ticket scheme, which allowed rival supporters to buy tickets for a virtual game, has been a massive success for Rose, but fans continue to dig deep.

Season ticket sales have been going through the roof at the club.

Speaking this week on www.bonnyriggrosefc.co.uk, the club said: “We have seen season ticket sales for the new season increase by over 25 per cent already despite offering online sales only as New Dundas Park remains closed for the time being; truly phenomenal.

“As a reminder, any existing season ticket holder has the option to buy an adult season ticket for £80, concession at £40 and youth at £15 as our way of trying to compensate holders for the curtailment of last season, as no season ticket holder claimed for a refund.

“New season ticket holders can purchase an adult season ticket for £95, concession at £55 and youth at £20.

“For the 12th season in a row we will not be charging any child of 12 and under entrance to our home league or regional cup games, but need to be accompanied by an adult.

“Season ticket holders will get priority access to New Dundas Park this season if there are restrictions on supporter numbers allowed to attend games.”

Rose say they are basing ticket prices on the assumption of a 17 team Lowland League next season which would mean 16 home league games.

If for any reason 16 home league games are not played, the club says it will offer a discounted season ticket for the next campaign.

The club added: “Season tickets for new and existing season ticket holders are available to purchase online through our club shop.

“We can offer other ways to purchase season tickets for next season, so get in touch through our contact form or send us an email and we will be able to discuss further.

“Existing Andy Kelly season ticket holders should also get in touch or email as their tickets aren’t available to buy online as we are fully subscribed.”

Scotland’s lower league are hopeful of kicking off their new seasons in October.
