Re: New initiative by the club 'Virtual Tickets'

I will donate for the away games I would have gone to. Would have thought we should be able to claim the 80% of wages though. Wonder if the players may also be prepared to take a cut? (I know they don't have to), as they wont be training or playing so putting no time in and the fans will have to dig...

Re: The moment we've all been waiting for...

I understand that one of the university colleges in London is expecting to go into human trial on a vaccine in April after "very exciting" results on mice in first trial samples. So assume there may be several country's that could be first including "ours". Not sure we are capable of manufacturing l...

Re: Darlington V Farsley

Just one note of interest on the way out Galbraith was smiling and laughing with a fan, (may have been embarrassed laugh?) And Donawa looked a bit dejected. Hope the team can pull themselves back up after that disappointment. Or just a laugh - it is only football after all. That is true indeed.

Re: Darlington V Farsley

It was a strange game yesterday. Thought we played some fantastic football, and could have been in double figures if we could take our chances. Bit like Bradford PA game. Elliot had a bad game but it does not make him a bad keeper, although this will have knocked his confidence . The defence did not...

York have called there game off apparently. Wonder if they were worried about altringham, or want to see how kings lynn get on before playing or actually the virus?

Game could have been 6-6, Hereford just took there chances and York didn't, to be honest Hereford played the better football at times. York's d...

Re: Guiseley

Re: Guiseley

Deserved defeat at 3-0. While they did appear to have some help from the ref we were second best across the whole pitch. Could hardly put 2 passes together and not one shot on target. Players got in each others way and the ball given away time after time. They were fitter and stronger than us and ha...

1800 votes from an average gate around 1400, seems to show a fair bit of interest.

Re: New kit

I normally buy the home and away shirt every year but if it had been hoops again I would not have bought the home shirt next year, the last few years have been too similar. As a club we have to be commercially aware and this season I thought it would cost sales so would not want to repeat that. A sh...

Re: Darlington V Spennymoor

Thanks Super Les, normally agreed well before so was starting to wonder.
Could be a big hit for them if they lose to us again, with Kings Lynn to follow, and us having Gloucester, we could be 5 points ahead of the "Pride of County Durham" by Saturday night. Fair bit of pressure on them.
