Tier 3

Post by Quaker85 » Thu Nov 26, 2020 11:53 am

Darlington has been placed in tier 3 when lockdown ends on 2nd December. Unfortunately this means no fans at matches for the foreseeable future

Surely it was easier to leave us as we were until December 16th?

Haha I saw on GMB the other day they complained about the tiers not being read out the other day as the news conference.

They missed a trick not roping in James Alexander Gordon to go through them.

Sadly no team names read out in error this time unlike the first round draw!

Was always going to be Tier3 for the North East. Looking at the NLN in general it looks like most teams will still be playing behind closed doors.

I'm not sure they did to be fair - I don't think he gets much work these days.

No surprise being put into tier 3, no prospect of crowds being allowed to watch Darlo in Darlo this year. What happens of we play an away game at a club that is in a tier 2 area. Are we allowed to have take fans to their ground, I suspect the answer is no.

By my reckoning, eight teams can have fans: Chester, Southport, Hereford, Gloucester, Brackley, Kettering, AFC Telford and Kidderminster.

So will these teams be getting income from gate receipts and the 30K a month bailout too?

Probably still get some funding, as limits are going to be in place.

its a good question about funding. Depends on how they deal with it. If its the 2000/4000 limits, then virtually no club who can have fans in will lose out.

If its the sort of limits they were talking about at start of season, then distribution of funds will be even more contentious, unless it is done in arrears and takes account of numbers actually going

Answer has to be no Pete as only essential travel out of Tier 3 is allowed. I believe this is an instruction not a legally enforceable rule but nonetheless it should be followed.

no tier 3 fans allowed to travel and rumour is National League will be requesting clubs ask fans for proof of address when buying tickets which will only be sold online.

But if you live in a tier 2 area? Presumably I can go to the Southport and Chester games incognito, of course. Reminds me of the old days of hiding your colours!

I think that you still have to hide your colours at the likes of Cardiff Leeds Millwall Portsmouth and West ham.

I never hide my colours at WHU.
Millwall? Now that is a different story.

Ed, do you mind me asking where you live? I'm not far from West Ham (or Stratford/Hackney Wick) and used to live in Bermondsey so have met a lot of Millwall/West Ham over the last few years.

We will be playing at the arena again next season - fact.

Quakerz - if you actually attended games and spoke to people you might actually find our facts, rather than spreading s*** on this board.

I live just short of the Scottish border. Nearest big town is Hexham but I am out towards Kielder water.
While Darlo have always been my team I went to watch WHU at Boro in 1958 the day they won div 2.
3,000 WHU fans singing bubbles was enough to hook me. Been a season ticket holder since 1972. Pre Covid I was getting down to London about 6-7 times the last few seasons.
Over the years I have had some pretty hairy moments with Millwall fans. The 2 clubs sort of "don't get on" :lol:
