Title: Fixtures.......
Post by: Blue_and_Gold on August 09, 2020, 10:03:06 PM
.........are being released on the 8th September.

National League have advised Clubs NOT to sell season tickets.

Each Club will need to appoint a Covid19 officer.


No idea how social distancing will effect the size of the gates at the Walks, but Wrexham who usually have a capacity of 10,700, are being restricted to 2,600.

most public places which are opening seem to be 25% of your capacity in walks case about 1300. Think it would be best if they stop away support. Doesn't sound hopeful if suggesting no selling of season tickets.

Is this correct ? fixtures out on Sept 8th. I’ve seen nothing about this in the clubs website site or twitter feed.

1300-1400 would be a decent starting point, if it can be 40/50% later on, that's 2000-2500.

I found it on other Clubs websites (such as Boston and Wrexham and others), all saying and quoting the same.

Still worth a tenner for the ground improvement fund/season ticket draw. :scarf:

With match day tickets being restricted, a nice way to ensure you get to be there !

Thanks B&G.   Seems like other clubs are selling blocks of fixtures, like 10.  Also read Wrexham are of the opinion limited crowds numbers will continue until after New Year.   Bang goes a big Boxing Day/NYD bumper occasion.

Are you looking at that from a legal point of view of just taking what the Club says ?  SC’s comments and website  disclaimer are hardly great marketing ideas on how to foster good relations with the fans or indeed encourage anyone to commit to buying a season ticket.

Du to the "No Refunds" policy I am holding off buying a Season Ticket.

Wonder if Macclesfield will try to take it up to CAS, or just accept it now.

Think the decision is final Lough.  I guess if there were to be any appeal it would have to be quick with the fixtures coming out in early Sept.

That’s our local derby changed.   Notts Co now ?

Well I'm going along with a lot of the other posts. I am not going to buy a season ticket. The club seems to be making up its own laws.
Getting rather fed up with , Give, Give, Give, all the time. Time the club started to show some respect for the fans, and stopped thinking they are made of money.

From the statement , their is no more recourse to FA appeals, leaving CAS as the only body they could go to, but given the deductions are for non-payments in the first place, it’s unlikely they’ve got deep enough pockets to take it there.

From a browse on Google Maps, Notts County is closer, but Borehamwood is quicker to get to, ground to ground.

Notts County on Boxing Day would be a cracker. In normal times at least.

I have nowhere near as much know-how about the running of the club, especially the financial Hargy and bargey..
However, I’m definitely in the camp, if there is one, that thinks SC is the best thing to happen to this club since Peter Tough should have been in the England squad !  No (!), the doubters might be right and we could implode, but fingers crossed for the man “who bought a football club”, as far as I’m concerned !  Only disappointment so far is the Friendly list.  League clubs respect the standard we’re now in enough to appreciate that friendlies against NL clubs are serious work-outs, not friendly testimonial type games for youngsters - so I think we should have tried for a league club.  BUT, there are some good friendlies there too, so only a muted complaint.    Now we need to get this virus sorted.  Peter Tough might have the answer in his bucket !......

Would Bevan be allowed to video Friendlies  :dontknow:

If so, what time lag to get it on YouTube?

Not being "tech savvy" is there a way of transmitting live stream and how much would it cost on a secure link and fans could pay?

Just been reading the Dover Ath, owners comments on where they are a concerning this coming season.  Disappointedly he sees the season starting at the end of Oct not the beginning.

Maybe we will see a staggered start to our season with Clubs in area’s with a high R rating not getting under way at the same time as clubs in areas where the R rating is low.   I know it sounds a logistical nightmare but these are are very strange times.   In the same way games will be cancelled at the drop of a hat ( look at people returning from France). Then maybe games can also be arranged or the-arranged very quickly.

Just a thought

The simple thing to do would be to have ban on away supporters which would stop the spread of the Virus.

Or allow x amount to travel buy tickets prior  ( own arrangements made to travel )
Yes I see where you’re coming from but it seems football is being treated differently.... go to any beach today they’ll be holiday makers there , cinemas opened , other events going ahead , and as someone mentioned ( saw for myself ) the car boot at knights hill .... that was  a breading ground last week packed out  !!!

With you on that boys but.  Take Halifax as an example if West Yorks is in temporary lock down how can home games be played with even a restricted gate?  Then how can a team from a lockdown area travel elsewhere to fulfill a fixture.

*. Not sure if Halifax is in the area that is on restrictions, just using it as a ‘what if’

agree mallard , this season I can see either cut short or stop start throughout as like you say
‘Halifax’ lock down means poss 3-4 games pp and then how do they then fit them in an already busy schedule ??  Just hope we have a good start can see ppg deciding  next seasons outcome .... 🤞 hope I’m wrong

I hope they write into the league regulations who an incomplete season will be decided before it kicks off, to save all the wrangling we’ve had this year.

A sign of things to come? A game due to be played on a Saturday called off with only 24 hours notice.



Workington’s stars self-isolating after positive test cans Carlisle clash.

Workington’s players are self-isolating this weekend instead of taking on Carlisle United in a friendly after a Reds star tested positive for Covid-19.

Saturday’s scheduled 3pm kick-off at Borough Park for Danny Grainger’s Northern Premier League side was cancelled on Friday afternoon after a test result came back positive following a contact training session on Tuesday.

A Friday night friendly at Creighton Rugby Club between the youth teams of the NPL Premier Division’s Reds and their League Two neighbours was also called off in the interests of safety.

Workington AFC chairman Les Byers told the Workington News & Star that the player who’d tested positive was not showing any symptoms of the virus and confirmed that the squad were now self-isolating for a period of 10 days starting from Tuesday.

A Reds statement read: “The behind-closed-doors pre-season friendly between Workington AFC and Carlisle United, due to be held at Borough Park tomorrow, has been cancelled.

“The Reds and Blues under-18 fixture, which was to be played tonight at Creighton Rugby Club, has also been cancelled with safety once again the first and foremost consideration.

“The first-team held a contact training session on Tuesday and since, one player has tested positive for Covid-19, even though he is currently asymptomatic.

“Under regulations, social distancing measures must be applied. We have moved quickly to ensure that the safety of our staff, players and those of United, remains paramount
