Very mundane/steady of the road answers.

Re: Season null and voided

Of course we have "committed" to pay contracts but the whole world has changed hasn't it in the last 12 months so how can things be the same? Players have to accept that the club possibly by paying them the extra 20% may be putting itself in a dire financial situation with zero income coming in. As...

Re: Season null and voided

Yes. Ryan Croasdale terminated his contract with Fylde over the summer under similar circumstances. The FA ruled in his favour and he signed for Stockport County on a free transfer. We have to find the additional 20% to avoid this happening with one of our players. I disagree with you if a player i...

Re: Season null and voided

Also you have to remember the players employer DFC, has just voted to shut down playing and therefore removed the opportunity to play and be paid 100%. Obviously if we continue then we would struggle to have a DFC after so long without fans. I am comfortable that we try to honour the players contra...

Re: DFC Voted for League to be Null & Void

Re: Defining Success

Excellent and reflective read. I had the same thought about the fans with the clubs null and void stance. Has there ever been a decision that has virtually if not 100% fan backing? No in fighting, but everyone supporting those making massive decisions for the short and long term future of the club w...

Clubs taking on loans in their hundreds of thousands would also result in redundancies in the medium & long-term.

In the immediate short-term there is the furlough scheme to safeguard jobs until the end of April.
