HALESOWEN Town officials have frozen season ticket and match admission prices for what manager Morell Maison hopes will be a title challenging 2008/2009 season.

After missing out on promotion from the BGB Premier Division in the play-off final earlier this month, the Yeltz are keen to see as many fans as possible at the Grove next year and it is hoped this price freeze will help.

The manager said: "There will be price freezes right across the board.

"We didn't think that in the current financial climate it would be right to increase prices for our loyal supporters."

The boss also announced two exciting friendlies were already agreed while a couple others were in the pipeline.

League One Walsall will stop off at the Grove on Friday July 25, followed by a visit from Blue Square Premier Division newcomers Kettering Town on Tuesday July 29.

Maison also revealed Eldon Maquemba was still mulling over a deal offered to him by the club.

Meanwhile, Nick Amos and Jay Denny are believed to be targets for Steve Bull's Stafford Rangers side.
