If the new members are optimistic then they obviously haven't read this forum 😉

T20 membership is what I thought at first, but after reading the article (apologies if i'm wrong I only skimmed over it) it suggests full membership is up. Suppose it's to be taken with a pinch of salt as it is only early bird membership but still good news.

Now that the early bird renewal deadline date is almost here it seems one step closer to being asked if i've "wintered well" by the usuals in the north east upper.

Suprisingly optimistic considering last seasons performances. I was expecting membership figures to drop.

Wonder if it has anything to do with the fact if you bought this years full membership you’d get first refusal for ashes tickets.

I think The Ashes will have a lot to do with the increase. Anyway it's still excellent news all round.

Ashes tickets see what the membership is in two years, I would love to see the membership at 17% every year but don't think so tickets for the first two days will go like hot cakes.

Its worth pointing out that an increase in revenue from Memberships isn't necessarily the same as an increase in actual memberships...
The same number of members paying slightly more for the privilege.

Agree with that but the lure of Ashes tickets has prompted (Lancashire born) Mrs T to upgrade from a T20 Season Ticket to a One Day Membership. I'll skip over the shambles of a T20 fixture list and the fact we won't be able to get to that many games...

As a household we're all now signed up - Debenture, One Day Member and Junior Viking. Only Sally the 16 year old cat remains on the sidelines!

Interesting that the announcement is couched in terms of revenue increase as opposed to numbers of members. The implication is that the focus is on finance rather than membership. Not really a surprise, but well done for marking it up, Steve.

Re-invest that increased revenue of membership money into buying a box office Overseas player for Twenty20. The club will see bigger crowds for the T20 Blast and build on an ever increasing fanbase in the longer term.

reinvest money from membership for a 20-20 big gun and at the end of the year no profit at all.

Has to be good news if memberships are on the up.I went to Headingley a couple of days before xmas to renew my memberships,I was told i'd already done it.They had taken about 350 quid out of my account in late November to cover the three memberships-without my consent.I was told a letter had been sent out informing members this would happen. I had received no such letter- and i normally receive three of everything sent out. Thankfully i'd had just enough funds to cover this but it was close to being a very bad xmas surprise.
Anyway, that was our annual xmas present to ourselves sorted, and i still felt the usual tingle of pride and excitement as i returned to the car.Roll on summer....
Happy new year everyone.

The selection of a t20 'big gun' strikes me as a very hit and miss affair. If you wrote out a list of our t20 hired guns in order of their contribution, and then another with them in the order of their status/reputation at the time we signed them, you'd finish up with two very different lists. Neither Starc nor Miller had much reputation when they came. I suppose our 'bums on seats' signings have been Finch, Maxwell, and perhaps Gibbs.

There's also a weird problem in deciding on whether someone signed for longer is a white or red ball specialist. Finch for instance in the end impressed me more in his efforts in the Championship, whereas Handscomb, very much primarily a red ball signing, struck me as more use to us in the white ball games.

I had the same experience, spanishnick. Some years ago, I was shocked to find the club had withdrawn my subscription without warning, four weeks before Christmas. I cancelled my direct debit immediately and now pay by cheque in March. It costs me a little more, but ensures I retain control of my account.

I renewed my YCCC membership before Christmas but luckily I didn't have the same experience as Nick otherwise I'd have had a problem as there would have been insufficient funds in that account to cover the 2 memberships we have. I use that particular account just for my cricketing spends & as the season had finished wouldn't have put any funds back in till this March.
