Re: Support package announced

30K per month for as long as we're behind closed doors should more or less cover it. I'm hopeful that 30k a month is roughly the figure we were hoping for to balance the books. That feels about right on the face of it. Could be a £10k deficit if we get it for eight months but a bit of progress in t...

Re: Support package announced

Wasn't there something announced a few days ago about the National Lottery putting some money into the National League? Wonder how that fits in with this - is it included in this package or some additional money? That is this package. The funding for the next three months is coming from the Nationa...

Re: Support package announced

If all confirmed then £30k per month seems reasonable for us. Not sure how some teams with smaller attendances get the same as teams with higher etc. generally but you get what you are given and get on with it I guess. If I am honest without really looking at all numbers and how long this goes on f...

Re: Support package announced

If it is based on attendances last season the top 5 would be York Hereford Chester Dulwich Hamlet Maidstone United We would be 6th but tbf Kidderminster, Fylde and Havant & Waterlooville were reasonably similar to us. The gap between us and Maidstone is reasonably bigger than our gap to the others a...

Re: Support package announced

Yep that is based on the clubs in NLN/S last season and doesn't include those who were NLP last season. I have a feeling they may get first dibs. I really thought they would just take the total average attendance. Work out a £/person on the total pot and then apportion accordingly. Never mind shame ...

You could be right, but then again it wouldn’t surprise me if he isn’t contracted to Tadcaster. The fact that he is training with us with a view to sign may just indicate he isn’t contracted and just 7-days notice is required. We will see. I agree looking at his history I would actually be slightly...

He is not lucky.

When did it become luck to be asked to do a job when you are proven to be proficient at that job.

It's the suggestion that he is the one that is lucky.

It is obviously a good outcome for both parties but we are equally as lucky that he was available.

When exactly do you expect that to be. At least 20% of league games are being postponed at the moment and we have only just started entering into enhanced measures.

Not likely to be such an issue now people are not allowed to mix in pubs. Apart from hardcore drinkers can’t see many people bothering to go to the pub if they can’t socialise with friends.

They got beat comfortably by Marine at the weekend and have otherwise won one league game (drawn two).
