In addition to the current range of season tickets available the Doonhamers have introduced a £90 season ticket for 16-21 year olds.

The price of an adult ticket stays at £256 which works out at around £14 per game - a saving of £32 per season. Concession tickets are available for £144 and the Junior Blue ticket for young supporters up to the age of 16 remains at £18.

Season tickets go on sale from Monday 13 June and will be available online or in person from the office at the Queen of the South Arena during normal office hours.

Workington Reds 'delighted' to reach playoffs

Workington Reds have made it to the playoffs in the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League.

They did it in style by earning a five nil win over Buxton last weekend, and will travel to Blyth Spartans on Tuesday for the playoff semi final.

It was one of the final home games for Kyle May, Workington Reds' longest serving player, who is retiring at the end of the season.

Absolutely delighted to be honest with you. More so for the lads than myself. It was a bit emotional, it being the last game, but obviously it isn't the last game anymore.

I have a lot of memories from Borough Park, a lot of good ones, so hopefully we can make some more in next couple of games.
