Gates may fall next term - Turner

Graham Turner is set for his 13th season in charge at Edgar Street

Hereford United manager Graham Turner says clubs may be hit by lower gates next season, as fans simply cannot afford to go to every game.

Turner told BBC Hereford and Worcester that clubs have to be realistic and could be hit by the 'credit crunch'.

"Gates could be reduced," said Turner. "Families are finding it tough. Maybe not us, but I think a lot will have to deal with lower gates.

"One of the first things to go out of the window is kids and dads football."
