Chester have announced that theirs has now beaten the £80'000 barrier. That's not a bar effort in all fairness.

It's mandatory to produce a programme - what constitutes a programme and how many you produce is the loophole.

Would either of those still be necessary for a short term pandemic contingency period if it were for a couple of months? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Knowing how DRFC can be, yes.

Re: The Team 20/21 season

When do people think the season will start? does anybody even think there will be a 20/21 season? Could be a 21 season... Clubs at our level aren’t viable without paying crowds.

Naturally the momentum of BTB has stalled after a fabulous start. Hoping the showing of FA Trophy victory will give it a bit of boost today.
with the current situation anything extra is an added bonus especially once the recession kicks in

Maybe an element of it having been pay day yesterday/recently for most and a lot of people sat around at home less busy than usual so they've just got on with it.

Re: Raj Singh

I've just read the Hartlepool Mail article where he states that he's had to put 2.2 million pounds in over 2 seasons. So that's supposedly on top of parachute payments and gate money. So if he's speaking the truth, if, then the club must have spent between 3 and 4 million in total in 2 years. What ...

Re: BTB

Rather than slag Ra, off when most managers are looking to take a pay drop perhaps we need to look at managers looking for a salary increase for next season!!
which managers are looking for a salary increase?

Hopefully they will extend the early bird to allow more time to purchase due to the uncertainty with jobs and money in the current climate.
not to mention how many are now wondering if and when there will be a next season (depending when this season is finished)
