Re: It was 30 years ago this week just gone.....

I think we had a midfielder called Mike Robinson who never played again. If it is the same one he was called Neil Robinson and I see to recall he was a vegan, so didn’t wear leather football boots. Isn’t it odd the things you remember (assuming I’m right of course). Yes it was Neil Robinson, came i...

Re: season tickets on sale

If that is the case then season ticket prices have risen. By maybe £25, I could be wrong... Ticket prices were obviously set and started to be sold before any of this kicked off and whilst it’s highly likely that the league won’t be expanded to 23 teams given the planned nullification of the divisi...

Re: season tickets on sale

Almost halfway to this seasons total, it’s only the first week in April and no one has a clue when we might see another game of football. It’s a good effort and brought in much needed cash.

Hopefully the interest free instalment plan available now makes it easier for others to get involved too

Re: My first game

We didn’t beat Rochdale at home in 95/96 or 96/97. We beat them 4-0 at the end of the 94/95 season but Painter never scored

Re: The moment we've all been waiting for...

If we effectively only have a license to play at Blackwell, and pay so much a game - do we still have any liability? We don’t own the ground or any part of it. I don’t wish any problems onto the rugby club but the Government have closed football down so are we liable for rent on something we can’t ...

Re: The moment we've all been waiting for...

According to the latest published accounts:

Turnover: £677K
Playing Staff: £365K
Coaching Staff : c£70K

So players were 54% of turnover or for £1 of revenue earned we spent 54p of it on players
Players and coaches 64%

Costs were £800K

Re: Quaker Retail.

It can still be run online if needed where staff can be protected.

A lot of small businesses if they can will need to diversify to survive. Pubs and restaurants need to look at providing delivery services whilst they still can at least.

Re: Coronavirus and DFC

It does seem strange to hold this game today. It seems that there will be a long lay off with two options at the end of it. Either to declare a kind of ghost season or to ram a load of matches in mid summer. Either way todays game seems a bit pointless. Agreed. The only point of today’s game would ...

I think realistically we’re looking at September before we can get back to any sort of normality. It’s going to be a long, tough 6 months, the like of which many will never have experienced before.

Re: AGM

Yes, BUT you do have to consider that BTB and DJ investment would have formed part of the playing budget calcs.

But yeah on the bare face of it, without £150K investment from the owners every season we’d probably not be able to compete at this level.

Re: Coronavirus and DFC

It’s very worrying for a number of reasons but like you say from a financial aspect it could be problematic. Many of our fans are of an advancing age and clearly at bigger risk of serious illness. Even if matches go ahead I expect crowds will be down partly due to this. We’ve also got a pretty much ...

Personally I wouldn’t class it as investment but suppose it’s a matter of opinion. It’s ultimately a cheaper way to attend games by making an upfront commitment. Fans at every club whether fan owned or not buy season tickets.

The story is that one of the founding directors of Interlink Scaffolding used to be a director at Industrial Scaffolding Limited and wanted to use a similar name, logo, colour scheme.
