Widnes chairman Steve O’Connor will let fans in for free at the Vikings’ next home game following their recent poor form.
The Vikings lost back to back games against Barrow and Whitehaven and are yet to record a win against top six opposition, with five wins and four defeats so far in a Championship season which they started as favourites.
And following the 27-6 humiliation at the hands of Barrow at the Stobart Stadium last week, O’Connor has come up with a way to thank the clubs fans.
A post on the club website read: “The last few results have been disappointing to say the least, particularly the defeat at home to Barrow” said O’Connor.
“However, it is a time for us all to pull together and following discussions with Paul Cullen, Terry O’Connor and Alex Bonney I would like to invite you as our guests to the game against Gateshead on 23rd May.
“Whilst in the short term this will only benefit non-season ticket holders, it is my intention to offer an additional one game discount to those season ticket holders who renew for 2010 in the ‘early bird’ period when it is announced.
“The Gateshead game is also the day when we will be drawing our first £10,000 Dream Ticket winner and instant tickets will be available around the ground so it will hopefully a day of celebration all round.
“Everyone at the Club is working hard to achieve our goals for this season and with an up and coming Northern Rail Cup quarter final against York plus over half of the league campaign to come there is still a lot to play for.”
