So new fans can either cough up for potentially nothing or **** off?

I'm not sure that an "aging fanbase" is the problem. The ground is too small; we have outgrown our capacity.I've just called the ticket office and the fella has confirmed this is exactly the situation.
Cough up for a membership, or **** off.
"How do we fix our problem of an aging fanbase, it is such a mystery"
At least we don't have the problem that some clubs have of season tickets being kept on by the family of deceased persons (or I'm not aware of it if we do). Where this practice exists, it's not such a problem because their grounds are more appropriately sized.
You might want to examine the dark art of train ticketing. If I'd turned up at the ticket office and asked for a ticket to Euston to get to QPR, I'd have had to part with over £73 (even as a Railcard holder). Knowing the opaque bits, I was able to get away with paying just over £40.That said I can’t really think of another business so opaque about when their product is due on sale.
Are you sure the club does this? Or do you mean somebody in the ticket office does? I personally am aware of a season ticket holder dying recently and the club is certainly not doing it in that particular case.
If a Season Ticket Holder dies, provided that the Club is notified within the following period of three (3) months, the Season Ticket (excluding any priority points) may be transferred to an immediate family member (as determined by the Club) with the consent of the Club (such consent to be given at the Club’s absolute discretion) and upon the provision of such evidence as the Club may require, including but not limited to a copy of the Season Ticket Holder’s death certificate and confirmation from the executor of the will of the Season Ticket Holder that the family member is entitled to receive the Season Ticket. If the concession conditions are no longer satisfied an upgrade price may be required to be paid for the remainder of the Season. Pro rata refunds will only be considered and granted at the discretion of the Club on a case-by-case basis. The Season Ticket should not be used for any Matches following a Season Ticket Holder’s death unless and until the process set out in this Condition has been completed.
Thanks for that. Clearly not everybody at the club is familiar with Point 14.

Alright so tweak every question I've asked to 'when is it on sale to priority points holders'That's not general sale. You needed to have priority points to buy.
Nope, they won't sell to anyone even if there are empty seats, which every single game this season has had
I know a family of 4 casual fans who rocked up for the Stoke game as a treat as they had a free day. Club wanted to charge them hundreds to get in and prefered empty seats over potentially new young fans.
