Maybe SC realises with the cost involved in promotion he needs others on board to share the costs. Full time or a hybrid between that and part time comes at an increase in cost.

In his NLP interview he said it is up to IC if we go full time.   He also said it was much easier to attract players on a full time basis.

It all sounded very much like IF we can promotion then we will be full time next season.

Think the interesting comment was ....

Because we haven’t really got a board of Directors at the moment you could argue that’s a positive or a negative, and that might change soon

Does this mean the rumours of some outside investor coming in are true?

I wonder what this move to the new Ground will do to Boston’s attendance levels, after the honeymoon period has worn off ?   No more walking to the ground for many.

Interesting they pulled in just over 2,000 for the York game while we pulled in over 4,000 for the same visitors.

Great piece on the Club with Stephen Cleeve giving his thoughts on how far we have come, Ian Culverhouse,  Full/part time IF we gain promotion.   Ground upgrades  done, and still to be done.  All kinds of stuff.   

Well worth a read(page 7)

Also there is an almost full page on Wroxham’s 2-0 win over Stowmarket in the FA Vase, with a crowd of over 1,000.   Wroxham go into Monday’s Quarter Final draw.

Wroxham have been draw at Home to Bitton (whenever that is).  Game to be played at the end of the month.

Just shows what cracking results over Xmas n New Year we achieved against Boston.   That result must be a massive kick in the gonads for York.  Now it’s up to us to really push it home.  Starting ( hopefully) with Monday night.

Gloucester grabbed a 2-1 win at BPA, and have to go again 50 hours later.

Seems a no brainier if it pulls in 500 quid plus a guess decent takings behind the bar.  I’d bring a team over.  How about finding a sponsor to throw in a few quid ?  How’s about approaching YLP ?  I see the other two papers have sponsored games at The Walks this season, so maybe they would like to do something on a smaller scale ?

Does the quiz have to run through Mark or can the Trust do it off their own back ?

Griss did you win the last one ?  You seem keen to get the next one on.

How much did it raise ?

On the subject of money raising, how much did the bucket Collection for Ryan raise on Saturday ?

I assume the 3 you mention are Wright, Lindsay and Defty.   Did Rudd and Easthall not inducted into the hall of Fame as well ?  Chris Watts also ?

Will this be in support of the Chairman’s ambition to add more barriers and to put a roof on The Tennyson Road end ?

Kidderminster weren’t one of the better teams to come to The Walks, but once they went a goal up it gave them something to scrap for. The 2nd goal going in was game over.  We had so many players not at the races yesterday.   Was it fatigue ? Was it attitude ? Just never happened for us.  Even the 7-8/ 10 players like Jarv dipped way under that level. 

Big wake up call for everyone, players, fans etc.   If we don’t put the 100% in then we will get beat.  Shame it’s 9 days to the next game, as the players will want to put it right.

By the time we play again we could well be knocked off the top spot as York seem to be hitting a decent bit of form.

IC has been telling everyone for weeks that we are basically punching above our weight.  Today showed he wasn’t wrong.  Big reality check.

Another thought on the game today.   The wind was swirling around which maybe things difficult also of course the pitch wasn’t at its best.  One other issue that seemed to effect the Lynn players was the pressure of some of the balls.  Which they seem to think were overinflated
