AMAZING after one day to have reached so much. I have upped mine from last year, the wife thinks that I am mad! No I am a Darlo fan from afar and cannot attend home games, going to away games does not help the cause, BtB does.
Mine said the same did not tell her I'm upping mine as well.

£27,964 now raised in less than 21hrs.

Not sure we will quite hit the 80k this year but you never know.

If we add in 50/50, Lottery and say 10k from DFCSG in shares, whilst also hitting the 80k then that's approx. 120k put in by Owners/Fans, impressive stuff.

A fans forum with a new manager in say 2 weeks could really help build things up, we need some direction from the board even if that is just some financial targets for next season and updates around the club.

Good point, I think I still have one payment to go as it's 13 months we committed to.

£32k is sensational so early, after all the doom and gloom this is so positive.

Slowed right down the last few days. Let’s get this done as soon as possible.

Was always going to slow down after the first couple of days but it's bank holiday weekend as well.

Would also think that quite a few fans are holding off until they see who the new manager is.

Yeah I imagine so.

Which is each individuals perogative.

Ironic as well how the success of boost the budget could likely determine the standard of manager we are able to appoint as well. Let’s hope too many people don’t hold off until an appointment is made.

Spot on, I think the appointment of a good manager at this level will give the boost another boost :)

So £40k up after 5 full days of BTB.

181 investors compared to 420 last year, so 239 missing investors currently. That's not a dig as not everyone can or wants to give every year.

I would hope we can add an extra 120 or so though at the average of £221.54 which would give a further £26.6k taking us to £66.7k which is excellent even if the target was £80k.

Upto 40k, we’re 50% there after less than a week.

Hopefully get upto 50/60k and then when new manager is appointed in the next few weeks we’ll smash the target.

What makes you think we'll only get another 120 investors Les?

I see no reason why we can't match last years effort both in terms of overall investors, and £££s raised.

I didn't think we would get anywhere near £80k last year and was very surprised at what we did get, I hope we do but I am trying to be cautious. Also I think we may have a drop out due to not getting value for money last year and I just think some will give it a miss this year.

However with 24 days to go and a new manager to be revealed in that time then hopefully that can push us to 80k again.

£2,129 been added just today.


We just need to keep it ticking over until new manager announced/coming to the end where you often get a bit of a surge.

The uptake has been quicker than I thought - I imagine there are a decent number of people waiting to see who is appointed too

The average amount per fan always impresses me - well over £200 per person on average.

60% now hit.

£48,057 raised towards our target.

I’ll be increasing my DD once the new manager is in place, as I expect there’ll be a mini-surge once we have appointed.

Just added mine and a slight increase. Every penny counts and hope we beat last year's total.
