Thatís exactly it KES.  A different level now.  TV will be involved from BT Sports.   Letís hope the local businessís havenít suffered massively from the Covid situation and can find the budget to support the Club.

Had a conversation with an acquaintance who does some ground advertising at The Walks.  Mark Hearle has been in touch ( good to hear he is back from Furlough) and broke the news that the cost has risen by a staggering 150%.

Seems like we are entering a whole new ball game game now we have moved up to the top tier of Non League Football.   A really professional outlook seems the order of the day.  Can you imagine how much the main shirt sponsor will be expected to cough up this coming season ?   Must be big bucks.

So 30%. Would give around a gate if 1700.  Thatís enough I would think.

That may well be the case. 

If we have made him an offer which is he not happy with can anyone really blame the lad for testing the market to see if he can get a few bob more ?

We are mid June, and IF the new season doesnít start till late Sept early Oct, is there any real rush to get anyone on board. 

Marriott did say Kings Lynn have been brilliant to meí. Happy you would think to keep being looked after.  Then again .....

Seems BT Sports might be showing all the play-off games from all 3 Leagues.   Should help the Clubs with the costs of testing and playing behind closed doors.

Short interview with Adam Marriott in todayís NLP.    Waiting to see what offers come in.  In a nutshell.

Polish Speedway ( currently running behind closed doors) is allowing 50% capacity into stadiums from next weekend.

Steps 5 & 6 are hopeful of getting underway in Sept with a 30% of capacity into the grounds.

Surely thatís just another way if asking people for something and giving them nothing.   This seems to a well worn path now that appears not to be working.

How about a novel idea of actually asking the fans for something but giving them something in return.?

Judging by comments on previous threads it seems to have worked well in the past

With Schools seemingly struggling to have 30 kids in a class room come September I think any talk of Football in front of a paying audience in Sept is rather premature. 

Then again when you look at the FA guidelines above, how can Clubs set up for the season with things like season tickets ?   Maybe sell a block of say 10/11 tickets ?

I can see fans being up for that

I think a figure of £14 grand was mentioned one year: raised from the sporting dinner with guest speaker on the Friday evening and a Northern Soul dance on the Saturday.

The marquee was then used for the end of season function on Sunday lunchtime

Thanks Kenny.

14k over one weekend. About 20k in today's money.

Not bad for supporters that have apparently recently been described as Dinosaurs!   :laughcry:

 :scarf:

If you factor in SCís philosophy of never knowingly undersold.   Then that 20k would be much more.  Admission, Food, Drink etc  :countingmoney:

Yes, remember those days and the money raised. If Club wants funds such as Darlo and others raised, maybe they should revisit the successful model used previously rather than the one currently in place which looks sadly lacking.  So maybe a combination of new blood with fresh ideas and enthusiasm coupled together with people like Gordon Chilvers from the past.   There was someone who not only talked the talk but walked the walk.

Now we have a full time Commercial Manager, Mark is in a perfect position to pull in the right people who could help him take the Club forward in a constructed and organised way.

Then Iím sure Stephen Cleeve would already be onto this with Mark.

Not often we agree Hill.  Is it FOTL who are running all these fund raising schemes ?  If so maybe they need to have a rethink on how best to improve the offering.

I heard all the National League play off games are being covered by BT.  Hopefully some of the NLN & NLS gamers will be covered by BT or if not available through live streaming.    We need our fix of Non League Football.

There are a good few things to be done Tony.

I would think the Floodlights would need improvement to accommodate BT Sport Cameraís. 250 lux is the min.

A First aid room must be high priority.  A relation of mine worked the York game on First aid and with a crowd of over 4,000 there was nowhere to treat any supporters ( apart from the small physios room).

Turnstiles.  I think at step 1 there has to be a min of 8. Do we have 8 ?

Press box isnít big enough, it must be a bit tight as it is, so that needs enlarging.

Iím sure we will need to improve disabled access etc as well.

The good thing is we have until March(?) to get a lot of these things in place

The National League Ground grading inspectors must have signed the Club off as ready to start the season.   So we have breathing space.  Though Iím not sure the floodlighting can wait.
