Will Prescot Cables be allowed out? Knowsley, where the club is based, has the highest rate of new infections in the whole of England.

Aye the club - very few of the players though.

And if we scratch because we can’t afford to play, is it a case of who scratches first?

I'm not so sure. If this game activates the players contracts.
Mr Singh said this " I'm not expecting to get back any of the money I've already put in, I'm prepared to write it off for the future of the club. I'm not hanging in to make any kind of financial gain in the short or long term - if someone was prepared to come in and take the club off my hands, I'd be more than willing to discuss it"

Can imagine a number of fans turning up at BM on Saturday with step ladders, periscopes and drones
And end up being arrested?
Ah yes, forgot about that little known charge of being drunk in charge of stepladders /periscope / flying drones. Boris slipped that in just after the rule of 6.

Is the game being streamed live, and is it being shown un in the clubhouse?


It takes a special kind of genius to come up with this -.

To be fair, how many would you get in the clubhouse safely distanced? About 40 downstairs and 40 upstairs?

Doesn’t seem like it’d be worth the hassle of organising.

Presumably if bigger clubs have things like suites they could technically do the same if they operate them as effective bars separate from the stadium itself and people stay within the boxes.

Depressingly, I bet that’s how the first fans end up in stadiums in the top couple of leagues.

If Storm Alex hits Darlington anything like it's supposed to then all of this will be irrelevant anyway.

If postponed, would it also mean our season is not started & hence our players' contracts also? Can anything else go wrong for us??
😱 we could lose I suppose

Only going to be a little rain :D :D hopefully the pitch should be okay. Kevin and the team might get a little wet though!
