Is that list up todate Malcolm? Or has there been changes since Nov 19 ?

If, as expected Boris Johnson pushes back the final release from lockdown.  What effect will this have on the National League?

After the cock up of last season when Clubs thought they were going to receive support for the full season, only to find out it was for the opening 3 months.  Will Clubs be prepared to go ahead with the risk of restrictive gates being in place ?

It would seem that the Chairman is not seeking re-election as Malcolm is prepared to take on that role.  Iím sure Malcolm can get a decent team together to take The Friends forward.   

Who is/was Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary and Treasurer?

Hereís hoping with Malcolm at the helm it will get a much needed shot in the arm to revive the interest and raise much needed funds to help the Club.

Be interesting to hear Malcolmís ideas etc once the AGM has been held.  Having a full committed person like him will rub off on many others.

Step 5.  Our Reserves  were just one level lower at step 6

What are the important decisions to be taken Malcolm ? if itís lack of bodies  maybe you could rally some support on here.   Seems plenty on here who would like to offer their services, Iím sure.

There lies the issue Tone.  Big Clubs like Norwich, Peterborough are hoovering up 100ís of kids from area, age 9 onwards.   They have so much to offer facility wide and Ďdreamíwise.

Why would a ĎReserveí side trading under another name not be able to self finance and push up through Non League Football closer to the first team step one and maybe work on the principle of an Ďolderí age type academy.   Something along the lines of what Glenn Hoddle ran in Spain.   In fact I think a certain George Thompson came through from there.

Just throwing that into the mix, as something that might have more advantage to the first team playing at Step 1

Letís hope this latest idea produces the goods itís supposed to.   Canít help thinking young players development would be helped by playing in ĎMenísí football. 
 Like you say Tone, Clubs like Norwich loan out even their U23ís to gain valuable experience  that they seemingly cannot get within age group football.

I hope the Academy set up is not being used as a fund raiser for the First team as some are suggesting.

The old saying the proof of the pudding is in the eating letís see what starts to roll of the production.  Or not, as the case maybe.

I remember SC use to cover off such items as looking at buying land for a training facility in his podcast but think heís given up on those now as must be 10-12 weeks since he last did one of those. 

Mind I donít know who would look after any training facility as it seems we donít have anyone to look after the main pitch.

Has Steve Curtis left the Club or is he furloughed ?

Iím sorry for appearing to be thick, but how goes a lad plying his trade in the academy make the overnight leap to Non League Step one.  Surely if the gap between the Reserves to the first time is massive ( it is). Then does the same not apply to gap between the academy and the first team or am I missing something ?

It seems a lot of clubs work with an U23ís as a bridge between the two.  Are Lynn looking to follow this MO ?

Dilly, that big one with no teeth.  I think I saw her sitting at the bar down the pub tonight.  She asked to be remembered to you.  She had ĎLoveí tattooed on the knuckles of one hand  with ĎHATí tattled on the knuckles of the other.  She was missing a finger.  :cheers:

Chris Smith did a decent enough job for us at NLN.  Thought last season he was a little light weight and could be bullied by strikers at NL.  Was prone to the odd Fau Paux when overplaying.

Wish the lad well.  He was a big part of getting the Club promoted to step 1. 

I guess now June is here we will see some action in the transfer front with Clubs starting to put squads together etc.

Exciting times
