Re: David Johnson : We are in a sad position

As DJ said safety is as important as the money, so on that basis unless everything he asked for in terms of testing is quickly put in place then we should withdraw from the trophy?

Re: Season paused

Even if this becomes an end to the league season presumably the trophy carries on so we have to keep training and paying the players/management?

National League lottery money

You may remember there was a bit of comment from some clubs about what they saw as unfair distribution of the lottery money to help clubs playng without fans in the ground. The NL set up an 'independent' review of the process. The link goes to a report in the Non-league paper about a letter from the...

Fixture backlog

In his post match interview AA mentiond that as we approach Xmas we still have 37 league games to play! This must mean 2 games most weeks for the rest of the season, and that's before any postponements. Going to mean a fair bit of squad rotation to minimise fatigue and injuries - so should we be pre...

Re: We are on the box

Does the 13.30 kick off change the situation on overnight hotel costs. To get there on the day would mean a ridiculously early start, so will we now be able to claim hotel bill as part of our travel expenses from the host club rather than fund it ourselves as at Swindon?

Re: Has anyone played for DFC and scored for England?

During wartime games the Darlo team was made up of players from all over the place who happened to be stationed nearby at the time (presumably Catterick). Looking at a few programmes for this period it actually listed the home club for the players, and some of them played for 'big' teams of the time...

Wasn't there something announced a few days ago about the National Lottery putting some money into the National League?

Wonder what happens to the FA Cup game? Could have contract implications if that game goes ahead but then no league games following. Would you have to bring players back and start paying them but then no games to play after.

Allowed from step 3 down, so not us - apparently FA consider 'elite' includs step 2 , so presumably we will be included whenever rules change for everyhting from premier league to the smallest NLN or NLS ground.

Player and goal of the season

Had a twitter thing this morning from the club about voting for the player and goal of the season. Details also on the club site.

Voting closes Monday.

Wouldn't have thought there's too much doubt about player of the season - he's also in the short list for the goal.
