Today, officially confirmed that tickets for children ahead of this weekend’s clash with Oxford in the FA Cup would be just £1 in an incentive to enable more young supporters to attend.

It is the second initiative launched by the club this season after an alarming dip in attendance. Against , James’ Park saw its lowest recorded visitors in 10 years, prompting the club to release 10,000 half-season tickets, though it obviously has come rather late in the day.

With that in mind, here’s a look at how sections of the support reacted to the statement.
