Yeah watson has put the boot in and taken micky cummins with him. Ben clark is in charge, not sure who is assisting him and whether he is caretaker or what. Mind with the size of coaching staff york like maybe ben clark will go there as well. As for mr cala all hearsay at the moment what his role is: secret owner, secret director or just what folk have seen him do, work the turnstyles, who knows.

Except it's not hearsay. He himself has profiled his role as Chief Financial Advisor. This won't end well.

Yes, part time clubs can survive in the national league.

I do not buy the line from our club that we *need* to be full time in that league, should we get promoted. Obviously it would be tough to compete, but it's not an absolute necessity to be full time. The more part time clubs that end up in the national league, the less essential it is to be full time.



In its early days, all the sides in the National League ( Conference ) were all part time. I think the first full time side were Lincoln City after they were relegated the first time in 1987.

By then the Conference had been going for a number of years. The next full time side I suspect were Darlington in 1989

The biggest issue for part time sides is players getting any necessary time off work for the longer away trips

And that is the reason why a north east conference side would suffer in the league if they were part time, theres a few long trips especially if torquay get promoted


But if players are getting £500 & £600 a week to play part time, and many will in the National League - then it could be argued that they don't *need* a day job in any case. I'm pretty sure we've had one or two players over the last 2 seasons that have just played football for us.

Gateshead will slide down the table and away from the playoffs. They don't get the support to sustain Conference football. It's alright talking about the potential crowds they could get, when the cold reality of the day is the number of bums on seats.

Cannot see the attraction of Gateshead where wealthy owners throw money at them.They have NEVER had anywhere near decent gates even going back to the days when they were in the football league.Plain crazy.The Evostick is really their level.

Yep. I doubt he will be on big money but probably enough for a 21 year old who is still at home.

Syers and Styche both were studying part time and playing football part time, same with Trotman.

Think also Gillies, Caton and Beck were just "footballers" as well, could be wrong though.

Don't know much about Ian Watson but best of luck to Ben Clark, a hardworking player and knows the squad. A couple of wins should see the club safe so nowt much for Clark to loose
