Re: Latest friendly

Not hopeful that the season will begin as scheduled. Looks increasingly likely to me that there will be no football at our level until 2021 unless we can survive via live streaming of games. Another possibility could be [b ]switching to a Summer Season say March to October 2021 [/b] to avoid the wi...

You don't necessarily get more injuries when you are older, it's just the recovery time that gets longer after an injury.
Its both imo, laws of nature. :D

Heres hoping Hunt stays fit as hes vital to our season.

If Mowden go bust there's a stadium we can probably buy for a quid! Not that we could realistically afford to run it.

Could there be a way for clubs to charge for a season ticket for match streams? Whatever happens our club is in good hands. Not good news for the bankrolled clubs who punch above their weight though.
I was thinking that today. Could the games be streamed and paid for to help the clubs?

Just been on, £36298 total......If like me you are lucky enough to be in work then you are not spending on much else so I think people will put in more.

Also, AA is doing a great job and Darlo fans clearly have faith in him.
