Re: Fundraising Ideas

I know people sponsor the players but every so often (once per month) could the club raffle off a players shirt (a different players shirt each month). I know the players wore the orange shirt once this season. Could they be raffled off (£2 per ticket) between now and the beginning of next season? ...

Re: Darlington V Hornchurch Trophy Quarter Final

I wouldn't describe Hornchurch as a 'tidy side'. I thought the defending by both teams was calamitous at times. I think if Alun Armstrong watched that video he would be quite encouraged.

Re: DFC Voted for League to be Null & Void

The National League are now saying that an "independent panel", not a "sub-committee", will be appointed to hear each case. So that is already a climb-down from their initial correspondence to clubs within the last 24/48 hours. The cases will be not be heard until the results of the resolution are ...

Re: Home to Hormchurch

It is a great draw for us, but I'm somewhat doubtful it will happen. The league only seems to be going one way. This is an F A competition though,not really a lot to do withe the league.Steps 3 and below were allowed to carry on in the F A cup when their leagues were curtailed so I personally think...

Furloughing is indeed about protecting jobs. I was trying to address the moral issue of furloughing staff after turning down a loan. But, if we take the loan, without the wherewithal to repay it, we would be trading illegally. :roll: Trading: "the action or activity of buying and selling goods and ...

Its a shame but it's been on the cards. The squad will be broken up but on the pitch we weren't great. I presume Nicky Hunt will retire and a few others will go. I think you might be jumping the gun somewhat by assuming DFC's voting declaration will be the eventual outcome. Have you actually looked...

Re: Season at risk of finishing early

It would pretty much spell the end of the league if the board threatened financial sanctions on clubs that feared for their future if they are coerced into taking on loans that threatened their financial future. It's pretty much certain that if the only offer on the table is for clubs to take on de...

Clearly a large proportion of those can only have a passing interest in DFC (at best). However, it would only take a small propor...

Excellent read. I would commend it to all 'owners'. So there you have it, Spen, in black and white: "thousands of pounds as a ‘signing on’ fee, plus a very good weekly wage" to play for the Pride of County Durham.

I'm surprised this game is free to watch on youtube. I'm sure Darlo fans would have been happy to give Guiseley a fiver to watch the game.
The link I followed makes it clear that Guiseley are inviting donations to help towards the match costs.
