Re: Trotman extends contract

Great news. One of our best players, involved with England C so will have lots of eyes on him. If he stays, we have an excellent player. If he leaves, we get money for him and potential from add on's, and further enhance our reputation as a club that players can develop at and then move on to a high...

Re: Blyth...

Armstrong sounds exactly like our previous manager. Very well supported and held in high esteem but seemingly ungrateful and constantly pushing for more, more, more, and then getting annoyed when the money isn't there. There seems to be a lot of younger 'ambitious' managers that loathe it when clubs...

Re: Darlington V Chester

It could be that the club is already planning to part ways with Tommy in the summer, but the people that are shortlisted are currently in jobs already at the business end of the season whether it be in managers or assistant managers jobs that want to see the season out before making a decision on wh...

Re: Statement from the board

I think we would all love a team like we have had in recent years made up of North East lads but things have changed since then. Spennymoor have really stepped up the recruitment in the last few years, South Shields are having money flung at them and will be in our league in the next few years, we h...

Re: Early Bird Season Tickets

I’ll be buying one as I support the football club and if loads of ppl decide they don’t want to get one I dread what negative impact this will have on future budget and the ability to attract a half decent replacement.

Wolves have just announced they lost £1m a week the season they ...

Re: AGM

I think it all boils down to ultimately we do not bring that much money into the club. Crowds have been poor this season, but so has the football at times so its normal for gates to drop, but it's so damaging for the club. For example, we had 2,286 in against York, decent crowd but 200 paying punter...

Re: New loan signings

I’d imagine it’s all in hand, Wollerton only left today and Nelson yesterday.

Reading this Bradford PA have lost £1m since 2015, and they will be looking to cut their cloth moving forward. Insane money for a regional largely part time league.... https://bpafc.com/director-jona...

Remember that it is highly likely that we have not yet received all the monies owed to us by St. Mirren for him.
