Re: That is how you celebrate winning a trophy!

I cannot imagine that winning the Northern League has ever meant so much to a club and its fans or been celebrated in such style.

All being well we will have to do it all again next year.

FA promotion meeting

Now that Spenny are playing beyond the deadline when the FA meet to sort out promotion from step 5 to 4 they may well have a situation where either us or Spenny could still win the league on the day of the meeting. As the FA make the rules, and break them as they see fit, could they simply say: Ther...

Re: Match thread vs West

Re: Statement from the club

There's only an intention to have 2 boards at the moment, a CIC board and a football club board. However given the CIC only own 52% of the club I can't see how that can be passed given it would give neither the Supporters Club or individual investors a say. There is a plan to get the CIC share to 7...

Since we got that new steward on the gate things seem to have improved dramatically. I think he should be promoted to a job inside the ground. The only 'problem' now is that it still takes quite a while to get out - the problem seems to be not just at the gate to the car park, but traffic backing up...

OK I'll jump in first. Were 1883 aware of Mowdens plans? Have there been any discussions with Mowden about possible future uses of the arena?
