Hatfield was confirmed at the fans forum so no official output, plus his recent interview confirms he’s staying

At present it's looking good for a 5 a side competition.
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"

Fizzy pop awaits you!! (Just trying to keep this near the top til it becomes a sticky)
BBC gossip says Gianluigi Buffon (43) is leaving Juventus and is looking for a "crazy challenge".
We need a goalkeeper. Hmmmm!

Brilliant - we've had a buffoon or two before now. Would a crazy challenge appeal to Jamie Coppinger ? Anyway it's good to get all these pre-season details out so soon - are we cheering for Pool's in the play-offs ? We need one decent side from the region in the league.

On the subject of next season, is England in a Green, Amber, or Red group. Don't fancy travelling up Thursday for a game on Saturdy, and finding myself quarantined. :roll:

It's gone very quiet at the club, I'm presuming AA is on holiday at the moment?

You may of missed the intended friendly away at Newton Aycliffe FC on 6th July.
"The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It is a very mean and nasty place and it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't how hard you hit; it's about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward. How much you can take, and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done!"

If he is hope he is setting a good example and staying in UK. I am sure he will be working away behind the scenes and more signings and trialists will be in the offing.

Believe from the recent podcast he is looking slightly higher and waiting on those presently full time to decide if part time is something they want, Guys are back in training next week so anticipate a few turning up at training wanting to impress.

AA gives a very good update of where he is with signings etc in his interview on the latest Darlo Fans Radio podcast. You can access this by scrolling down the news column on the official website (sorry, I don't know how to cut and paste links on my tablet)

EFL fixtures don't come out until 24 June, so NL will be after that.

I am sure I saw somewhere else it is the 7th July at 1pm, but wouldn't put money on that.

For the NL the 2020/21 season is still underway - ie the Play Off Final
