Quaker tv

Anyone else having buffering problems - had no problems with previous games, but seems to be more buffering hold ups than watchable tv at moment.

Re: We are on the box

Does the 13.30 kick off change the situation on overnight hotel costs. To get there on the day would mean a ridiculously early start, so will we now be able to claim hotel bill as part of our travel expenses from the host club rather than fund it ourselves as at Swindon?

Re: Swindon away

Seems a long time ago now, but we were a penalty kick away from going out in 2nd qualifying round. Apart from all the excitement that save has made us a lot of money.

Re: Has anyone played for DFC and scored for England?

During wartime games the Darlo team was made up of players from all over the place who happened to be stationed nearby at the time (presumably Catterick). Looking at a few programmes for this period it actually listed the home club for the players, and some of them played for 'big' teams of the time...

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?

Player and goal of the season

Had a twitter thing this morning from the club about voting for the player and goal of the season. Details also on the club site.

Voting closes Monday.

Wouldn't have thought there's too much doubt about player of the season - he's also in the short list for the goal.
