Saints opened their doors on Saturday to allow fans to get a sneak preview of the 2013 squad training at Langtree Park – and pick their spot for a season ticket.

For the fans who turned out it was their first glimpse of Nathan Brown in his Saints role, as well as his assistant coach Jamahl Lolesi and new recruits Jordan Turner, Willie Manu and Alex Walmsley.

With the club on target to beat last year’s season ticket total, with some areas of the ground only having a few places left for the 2013 season, the club wanted to give fans another big opportunity to secure their vantage point.

The Red V Café Bar was open for Christmas refreshments, and the Superstore hosted a pre-Christmas sale of leisurewear, trainingwear and souvenirs.
