Saints Launch Local Residents Ticket Offer !

A new "Local Residents" ticket offer has been launched by Saints, Arron Sanders runs the rule over it for The Ugly Inside
Saints have today announced the launch of a new Local Residents’ Ticket Offer, making an effort to show its appreciation for the local community around St Mary’s Stadium. This is not the first time it has been done, in the early days of the stadium and at other times the club have rolled ou similar deals.
As a thank you, the club will be making a number of tickets available to local residents, priced at just £10 each.
Up to 5,000 tickets will be available during the course of the season, spread across category B fixtures, starting with the visit of Swansea City on the opening day.
The eligibility is determined by postcode, with households in the SO14 0, SO14 1 and SO14 5 areas qualifying.
Interim Managing Director Toby Steele said:
“St Mary’s is a vibrant community that we are proud to be a part of, and we hope this scheme will help show how much we value the support of those who live in the vicinity of the stadium.”
Residents who live in the above postcode areas will shortly be receiving leaflets with full information about the offer, as well as an email if they are already registered with us.
It's a nice touch from the club to launch such an offer, however without trying to being pessimistic I am sure those who do not qualify will be asking why only a selection of supporters have been given this offer.
The terms and conditions state that you must be a permanent resident at the address of the postcodes in question and tickets will only be sent out to that address and proof of address is required upon collection with a recent utility bill being required.
So for those wanting to try and manipulate the system to qualify for the offer, the club appear to well aware that these attempts may come.
It's great to see the club repaying the fans with offers such as these, and it's actions such as these that make me a proud supporter of our club.
What are do you make of this latest offer from club Saints fans? Do you agree or disagree with the limitations imposed by it?

Gylfi Not Irreplaceable- But Not Trying To Directly Replace Him Is Smart by BarneyLW
So the dust has finally settled. In what seemed like the most painstaking saga in living memory, Gylfi Sigurdsson is an Everton player. A man the club were silently resigned to eventually losing has moved on and like so often in the past, the club must plan for life without their star player.
Too many things for a title, but stop with the xenophobia accusations! by waynekerr55
I had planned to write this in a different fashion, but Bob Bradley's departure from the club changes a section of this blog. The conclusion was as expected. A seemingly good man and a tryer who simply wasn't up to the job. In short he should never have been given the job.
A New Hope At the Liberty? by BarneyLW
A feeling of déjà vu rose with the sun over Swansea this morning. Another manager out the door, another few days of links, speculation, supposed sightings of candidates spotted outside Rossi’s sampling the scampi. But for the first time in recent memory, there is hope in the air.
Swans Fans Were Angry- In A Totally Positive Way How a Common Enemy Helped Guidolin’s side pull of by BarneyLW
A return from the international break, which in truth was needed to clear the air around the club. A frustrating transfer market compounded and exacerbated back-to-back defeats against Hull City and the champions, Leicester. Boardroom shake-ups and a tough run of games has given the Jack Army little to be optimistic about.

A different league in a different country for two familiar foes; on Sunday Francesco Guidolin's Swansea host Antonio Conte's Chelsea side. So how does the head to head record look from their previous encounters in Italy?
