Season ticket for Mikkyx?

Hi Everyone, I work alongside MikkyX and I'd just like to point out all the hard work and effort Mikkyx has been putting in, to not only keeping this site going, but also all of the spare time he's been putting in to making the new Uncovered site which will be launching soon. With him just becoming ...

Re: The Quakerhouse Acoustic Night - Saturday 18th July

This will be £3 to get in and will be upstairs in the Quakerhouse, the regular spot for Monday nights Open Acoustic nights.

We're putting together a list of talented local musicians to entertain you for the night, and there'll also be a raffle.

I'll update this with who's playing at a later date.

Re: posters for games

Why not have have an eflyer and send it to all the contacts on the trusts new updated database from the vote and the CIC members as well. I love brain storming. That too, but that would be to people who already know. It's also easier to ignore an email than it is to ignore a flyer through your door.

Bishop are home 9 times in the first 23 matches, whereas we are home 14 times. Bishop are at home on Boxing Day as well as opening day, and while there is no guarantee that any club will be at home on those two dates, there would obviously be hell on if we were assigned a home match in preference o...

There's always some fine talented musicians on show at these Acoustic nights, and this one promises to be great too. Originally it was g...

Very good idea thanks, it's these kinds of things that will bring the community together instead of the former owners putting a huge gap between the club and it's fans, not to mention potential fans.

Can we stop this fake count and wait for an official figure?, if you're way off the mark you're only going to disappoint people if the total ends up lower.

Re: Player Sponsorship

Just out of interest, with our players being part time - what happens if you sponsor someone for £100 then he moves on after 2 games?

Will you get to sponsor someone new, or will you just get their shirt there and then?

This is pretty likely to happen isn't it?

Re: New Shirt Sponser

There's certainly a feeling with some of the more bitter NL fans that you're exposure on the Echo outweighs the status of your club. A view that is only likely to get worse as a result of this. I can see their point add your are just another NL side, but if they choose to sponsor you then it gives ...

Black text on a white hoop would work best, I reckon. I would love it to be that, you know then it would look like the Echo logo on their website.

Fantastic news Hilly.

By the way I'm loving our fans being in charge of things like this. For all these 'business men' we been employing for big money over the years who are 'experts' in marketing. We've already surpassed them with this online store. Well done all involved :clap:

So this would be their £10k investment? - That would be a shame because weren't they going to put that in anyway?, this way we'd miss out on an extra sponsor - hopefully the sponsorship deal is worth a little more.

Re: I know why the FA have been so keen to shaft us

I think it's because they are responsible for letting clubs like us be destroyed by chairmen that they haven't vetted properly.

It's their fault so what's the best way to hide it? Relegate us into oblivion and make us change our name so all will be forgotten? Darlington Who?
