Re: Boost the Budget Raffle

I'm looking forward to the BTB fundraising match at the RA on the 26th June. It will great to see Gary Browns 'Darlo Legends'. It would be really good if Graeme Armstrong has been persuaded to put his boots back on for one more game. It's the last day of the BTB shirt raffle - I've got my tickets. H...

Re: The vote of no confidence in the National league.

I'm not familiar with the U.S voting system but I'm sure there will be reasons why votes work like they do, however I'm sure voting in a huge country with multiple States is much more complex than The National League. I can see why step 1 clubs get more clout - but 5 times more!! The situation used...
