Maximum amounts allowed per club:

Step 3 - £27,000

Step 4 - £15,000

Step 5 - £10,500

Step 6 - £7,500

Clubs must use the funding by 31st March 2021.

DCMS is to announce that non league clubs in steps 3 to 6 will have £10m in GRANTS made available.

This will benefit 850 Clubs who have not played in two months.

No idea how that will be divided. Presumably the Club owners and the powers that be will want step 3 clubs to receive more than step 6  :dontknow:

In the meantime a new board/committee should be formed to run the National League.

Is Buster doing anything at the moment?

Would be a suspension for this quarter, so till start of April, with teams furloughing till then my guess.

Then for it finish season, would need to be agreed that it'll be played till early July at latest (meaning basically end of season finishes, and new one starts like 3-4 weeks later). Quite a few teams would have say 26 games left to play on average. Say it resumes on 3rd April, going Sat/Midweek, after 26 games you'd be looking at season finishing Sat 3rd July (that's 27 slots). Move it a week later to Sat 10th July to allow 29 slots. Would be a hectic season, but doable if teams really wanted to play it.

I'd wager there's a high chance come May, crowds will be allowed back (maybe June at latest).

If they don't just call it to a complete halt now, rather than suspending it until April and then keep playing until July, it could have a impact on next season.

Next season could still be difficult enough anyway as we will still be in this. They are saying that there could be some form of restrictions until the end of the year.

Stopping it now and just forgetting about it gives us the best chance of having a relatively "normal"  2021/2022 season.

Anyway, who'd be paying for it if they only suspended the season? No real hint that supporters would be allowed back in, and probably a limited amount when they do. Even if they were, I can see many giving it a miss for obvious reasons.

Clubs don't want the offered Loans, so with no income, it would be down to the owners to fund it. How many would be prepared to do that, even if they are in a position to do so?

Finishing it now makes sense on so many levels. That's unless BT  have a vice like grip on NL and call all the shots, as Sky do with the Prem.   :dontknow:

Looks and sounds as if the frozen pitch did the Club a favour last night.  :dontknow:

No point in playing the game and incurring the associated costs if League is coming to halt in next few days.

Someone has updated clubs website:


Tonight’s scheduled home game against Stockport County has been postponed due to a frozen pitch.

A new date will be confirmed in due course.

Presumably not so easy to find people willing to go and pull the covers on, this time around !!

First team Squad looking to preserve their income, and help the Club at the same time?

Under 21's, Ladies etc.

If the Club  wanted the game on, and if its off due to the covers not being used, I would think there's more than enough people to help if they are asked.

I thought this piece taken form the Home page was interesting:


"It's been a while since Stockport made their last visit to The Walks. To be precise a mere 108 years, 1 month, and 12 days.
On 14th December 1912 County, a professional Second Division Football League side took on Lynn of the Norfolk & Suffolk League in the fifth qualifying round of the FA Cup.

It was a match that might have been staged at Edgeley Park, Stockport but the Lynn committee declined the offer of £50 plus half of the gate money over £100 to switch the tie".
