Re: 4th Place Finish This Season

Away record predicts only 3 away defeats. By my reckoning we have already had them at Fylde Brackley and Farsley so that would mean being undefeated in next 15 away games! I think it is clear that whoever predicted these results was probably working from home and while they were not looking, their ...

Re: National League lottery money

You are correct Spen in that NLS and almost 50% of the clubs in NLN are not included. Doesn't exactly present a united front to the Government does it?

Re: National League lottery money

See statement below, we along with 11 other Clubs, have signed. Intriguing that 10 Clubs have not signed this. Seems strange as the statement is well written and thought out, and is non confrontational.

Re: Louis Laing

And Sam Muggleton in February 2019. I don’t think that the BM pitch helps at all. I’m not saying that this is the sole reason injuries keep occurring but it cannot help, always so dry & lively. Doesn't "dry and lively" suit a passing team like us compared to the hoofball teams? I've been to a lot o...

Re: Southport away postponed

bga I remember David Johnston saying that we had been using the furlough scheme from last March and that it can be used temporarily so I assume that if the season is paused then this will kick in. The furlough scheme ends at the end of April. Plus, some players may not be eligible for furlough paym...

I know contracts didn't start until the first ball was kicked. Does that mean contracts are cancelled once the last ball has been kicked?

But what is the Legal position on players contracts (you just know who's going to reply to that one don't you!) if the rest of the season is cancelled. Do we have to continue to pay them until the end of June?

Re: Shorter games ?

If the season is not extended it is very likely we and others will have to play 3 games per week. Personally I am not convinced that the season should be completed at all costs. Using PPG is not an ideal solution but perhaps the National League should draw up some contingency plans. It could perhap...

Re: Shorter games ?

Recently we played an 87 minute game against Boston and have been ordered to replay it. Shortening games really would be a nail in the coffin for the integrity of the league. This idea is absolute nonsense. I think the "integrity of the league" is already in doubt based on their current stance of n...

Nope dead against that proposal, a game should last 90mins plus extra time.
That really addresses the issue of player burnout Pete and a real possibility of another incomplete season!

No that was as I said a few months ago when women's rugby went ahead with this. Feel free to ridicule the idea but at least agree that all options should be considered to protect players and staff?

Re: Shorter games ?

:idea: Just a thought but it might not be as daft as it sounds. Given the fixture congestion, which could easily worsen, a game of 80 minutes could address the problems of fatigue and consequent injury and maybe even some incentive for shot-shy teams to through caution to the winds. Basically the a...

Yes the last thing we need is games postponed, otherwise we'll be playing 3 games a week till the end of the season.
But if there is a positive from that it could mean we're playing matches in front of fans rather than empty grounds?
