Re: New deal for Donawa, Hatfield, Rivers, Holmes,Hedley,Reid, Storey, Campbell, Laing, Wheatley

Does this mean all our players were out of contract at the end of the current season? If so this is excellent business and a fine example of how to keep a tight grip on the budget.

Re: Big decision for Chester fans to make.

The only chips here are to go with your phishing. As you can plainly see our fan owned model has clearly "lost momentum". In a time when the whole country is in the midst of crisis we've raised £95,000 of a £100,000 target with a week to go. Crawl back to whence you came and take your sad little tro...

Re: Boost the budget

Disappointed?! Think you need to give your head a shake. In the normal world we managed to get around 500 to contribute but there are people losing jobs, frightened about future income, worried about a lot more than a non league football club and still we're pushing towards the target. I'm amazed we...

I'd love to stick his head in the stand Gramps! Preferably hard against an iron girder. He's a constant argumentative nuisance who can't accept Brad's publicly stated seven figure investment.

Re: Thommo

What a great servant he's been to our club. Eight years of effort and determination. I'll particularly remember him hiding from that horrible hailstorm in the dugout at Flixton and his destruction of Burscough, a hat trick in a 7-0 win. Thanks and all the best Thommo, club legend.

Re: Boost the budget

So what's the target Spen? You can donate £2 to £100 but no apparent totaliser unless you've put a link on the Spennymoor fans forum. Mind you the safety net of Uncle Brad's deep pockets must be reassuring. Your groundsman seems to have much time on his hands.

Re: Price Of Football (Twitter)

I still think it's pedantic. The likelihood of a non league club getting to the third round AND playing a premier league team is very low. Only Sheffield United v AFC Fylde this year. Around £150.000 in gate receipts. There seems to be little chance receipts wouldn't ever cover VAR costs so it's not...

Re: Price Of Football (Twitter)

He's always here when he should be setting up the Spennymoor forum. If it's £9,500 for VAR what difference does it make whether it comes out before or after? That's just being pedantic.

Re: Raj Singh

Spen, you must let us know when you've set up the Spennymoor fans forum. I'm surprised you've not sorted it yet as you've had time during lockdown. I'm sure everyone here is eager to post their opinions on there.

Re: New initiative by the club 'Virtual Tickets'

And now after that target was reached we're already £45,000 into a new target after less than two days. Are you still finding our efforts "disappointing"? Once again I'm feeling great pride in being part of something special.

We're perfectly capable of raising funds as required by OUR club. I'm surprised that in the current situation you haven't found time to construct a Spennymoor fans forum site especially considering you're bothering us by posting at ridiculous o'clock.

Re: My first game

My first was at Haig Avenue, Easter Monday 1978. My in-laws from Southport were thankfully with me when someone loudly asked "aren't you a Darlington fan"?! We lost 1-0 and they weren't re-elected that season. A surprise really as they were fourth division champions only five years earlier.

Re: New initiative by the club 'Virtual Tickets'

Anyone else "virtually"off to Southport on Saturday? Friendly pint in the club bar beforehand. It's a fixture we always get to so I'll be chipping in at the weekend. It's a nice change to put money in the away teams coffers!
