Julian Dicks' agent, Rachael Anderson has hit back at accusations that ticket prices for this weekend's benefit match are too high.
Anderson spoke out amid claims that the tickets were overpriced at £25 each. She said: "The fact is we are having to pay a lot of money to stage this game. There are costs on top of those which have to be paid to Athletico Bilbao.
"There is no way Julian would look to fleece the fans."
Dicks also added his weight to the argument when he said: "I regard the fans as my friends and I just want to say goodbye properly. It's not about the money; it's about getting one last buzz by being out there in front of them."
Ticket sales have been slow from the off, and currently only around 10,000 have been sold. However, thousands of fans are expected to flock through the turnstiles on the day to boost the crowd for what promises to be a very emotional afternoon, as the Boleyn says goodbye to one of it's favourite sons.
