Re: NLN playoffs

Slight deviation from topic, but according to the Hartlepool Mail, Gateshead manager Mike Williamson is attracting interest from Hartlepool and Barrow. I think that would come as quite a blow to Gateshead if he moved on at this critical point.

I think at around this time last year, we were at £71k and we reached £135k, so it's going to take a massive effort to reach the £125k target. Hopefully the usual rush at the end will get us over the line.
The target is £120k.

Re: Season Tickets 2022/23

I might have missed something but I can’t recall any announcement regarding next season’s season tickets. Would expect to hear some news about tickets and prices in the very near future. Perhaps the club are waiting until BTB is completed. I would say now would not be the time to increase admission...

Re: Hybrid next season

How’s that Hybrid then ? Just an extra training night? Or have I missed something. Happy to be corrected, but I don't think AA has referred to it as being 'hybrid'. In my recollections of his interviews he's always referred to an additional training night. Maybe the term 'hybrid' was introduced by ...

Re: Retained list

D_F_C, do you think that the budget would support 22 players to start the season? I think it would be closer to 18 players.

Re: New stadium funding

There’s no point in dwelling too much on the recent past now. There’s nothing to say we would’ve raised a large amount of money AND boosted the budget. Pockets are only so deep. There’s so many different things that could and maybe should have been done differently in hindsight. I suspect the board...

McHale was noticeably good in the games against us. Really pleased with this.
I agree, he certainly stood out the time I saw him play against us. We'll have see how it develops, bearing in mind how often he moves between clubs!

Re: UK Financial Crisis

I think BTB will be difficult this year and I think that some of our fans that take in most away games, will be more selective in which away games they attend. i also think that some of our ST home supporters will not renew and choose which home games they attend. We can be sure that tough times ar...

Re: Darlington V Chorley

You only have to watch the highlights to see bare patches and cut up areas possibly churned by lineouts & scrums. Behind goal area at Tin Shed end seemed heavily sanded, possibly to cope with all the recent rain. Result was the proverbial bobbly pitch, although we coped better with it than Chorley ...

It's clear to me from the text that it is one ticket per fan ID. You've tried to buy 4 tickets on 1 fan ID. All of them have to be DFCSG members or season ticket holders to have the priority sale.

I believe Danny O'Connor is the custodian of the defib. There are also two qualified paramedics plus a 'Crowd Doctor' present at each match, although as Spen points out, the Crowd Doctor is only mandatory for gates above 2,000.

Nelson could be that man, but there's question marks over his fitness so we have to be targeting others as well
From what I've seen of Nelson over the last couple of games, he seems to be over the injury and it is just a question of him shedding a few pounds and building up his overall fitness.

Agree. It is just a bit of fun.

Especially over close season.
For me, looking at the lists of players that have entertained us over the past eleven years has served as great reminder of what we've been missing since fans have been excluded and has given me something to look forward to.
