Re: Club Accounts

But he's not taken a salary. He's been paid this bonus/commission to presumably cover his own costs at time which he has taken away from his own business. Oh, I was talking about Craig Morley at that point in terms of moving forward (apologies for not being clear). And I get everything else you say...

Re: Club Accounts

Show me a business where the 'majority shareholder' gets to find out that a fellow Director has taken £10k out of the business upon receiving the accounts? Are we saying this was a surprise to DFCSG? I doubt it Chris Stockdale Chair of the DFCSG has been running the finances since last April appare...

Re: Club Accounts

The main thing about the accounts is what we owe is down compared to previous financial year with all the player sales I’d imagine this years is looking even better so Club is hopefully going in right direction.

Re: Club Accounts

Ebac is a similar deal to Virgin which by memory was £50k over two years so even at 20% commission which the club was advertising recently for sales staff its a good deal. As an unpaid volunteer your not taking a monthly wage which as far as I can see he didn’t. I hate the way as soon as any managem...

Re: Club Accounts

Just read my copy, as Tempest was the only one doing commercial it looks like it was commission likely with expenses. As he was the only one doing commercial and running the Club it’s seems quite a good deal for the club a full time person would be £50k ish. Let’s not put any new potential Directors...

Re: Hartlepool match confirmed at BM

I’ll go along for the novelty factor of playing Hartlepool however I’m not overly fussed on it as a competitive game, but there will be fans on both sides that see it as a return of the rivalry. If it makes some money and goes off without any major incidents then I’ll be happy. My view too, will go...

Re: Sports Village (latest)

I’m sure DFC board will put the options out there soon with their recommendation then I’d imagine it will be for the DFCSG to do the same to the SG members which at present I believe is around 700 who will vote on either option.

Re: Ownership and Finance

Fundraising is simply not an option. 5 million pounds is 2,000 fans each investing 2,500 pounds. We have as much chance if those 2,000 fans put a pound a week each into a Euromillions syndicate. I've said before that some sort of syndicate might be a bit of fun for this site. Really like that idea,...

Re: Ownership and Finance

To change the Articles of the DFCSG then the members need to press the board on a vote of all the members. Until this is done it’s unlikely any one wishing to invest will come forward. Unless that happens I can’t see anything changing and we will flirt between NNL and league below. If the DFCSG had ...

To be honest some good answers from the netcafe very honest.

If we have ambition the DFCSG board need to look at bringing i...

I’ve never seen John Tempest look so down, he’s always come across fairly chirpy but he’s also thick skinned, if he goes I can’t see Dave Johnson hanging round. Let’s hope the idiots haven’t ruined it as I can’t see anyone else stepping up.
