APRIL 23 has long been a red-letter day in the history of our land.
On April 23 annually, we commemorate St George, the country’s patron saint.
On April 23, 1564, William Shakespeare, arguably England’s finest playwright and poet, was born (and, on April 23, 1616, he died – that is real poetry).
This April 23 – Saturday week – Argyle entertain Dagenham & Redbridge in a Sky Bet League 2 match, the result of which will go a long way towards deciding the destiny of the promotion-chasing Pilgrims.
Derek Adams’ side are carrying the hopes of a city, two counties, and many more on their shoulders in the penultimate home game of the Pilgrims’ campaign and the team deserves all the support that the Green Army can muster.
That is why we are making it easy for Argyle supporters to encourage, entice and energise family, friends, work-mates, colleagues, and anyone and everyone else, to come to the important game.
For this one match only, we are offering every Argyle Member – and everyone who buys a ticket for the game by close of business this week – the opportunity to purchase not one, but two more tickets at HALF-PRICE.
The fantastic offer applies to Green Members, White Members and ticket-holding non-Members who make their match-day ticket purchase before 1pm on Saturday, April 16. All will be able to claim a 50% discount on the price of up to two match-day tickets in any ticketing category.
As long as a Dagenham & Redbridge match-day ticket is bought before this weekend, the ticket-holder can claim the half-price tickets up to the eve of match-day – as can the Green and White Members.
The offer is not available online – tickets must be purchased in person from the Home Park Box Office, or by calling 0845 872 3335.
Rather like Shakespeare’s MacBeth, we see Daggers before us, and it is not a false creation, proceeding from our heat-oppressed brain. They are real opponents who we need to overcome – and, with your backing, we will overcome.
So, what are you waiting for?
Come On You Greens!
Or, as the Bard of Avon himself might have put it: “Cry God for Derek, Argyle, and Saint George!”
