In fairness B&G. As much as this level is new to the club on the field the same has to apply off it.

Clubs of long standing at this level have a full compliment of money spinners swelling the coffers.

Big monies coming in on Sponsorship deals. A fully up to speed commercial department and a Supporters Club sticking in decent amounts.  Just a few examples.

This will all take time for us to play catch up.

Hartlepool return to the EFL.  They beat Torquay 5-4 on pens after a 1-1 draw aet.   Torquay drew level in the 95th min when their keeper came up for a corner and headed the flag kick in.

I think the same as MK Dons there will only be 25% ground capacity allowed in for the Norwich game. So by the time you factor in all the staff etc from each side that maybe close to a 1000 tickets available.

As the MK Tickets are priced at £17 for the stand I would imagine the Norwich game will be £20.  Premier League side attracts Premier League prices.

With the retirement of Steve Curtis will the new Grounds person be sharing his duties between The Walks and our new training facility at Heacham ?

When we went up from step 5, we were the biggest team in The UCL.   Letís not forget we only gained promotion because Long Buckby ( League winners) declined promotion.  Then we were a top team at step 4 when we pipped Coalville, who blew up at the end of the season.

Promotion from step 3 came via the Play-offs when IC came back to the club, so we had the gods shinning on us at the end of the season ( coupled together with SCís financing).  Then in NLN we went up on PPG, after the season was pulled just  as we were on a poor run of form. 

Stephen Cleeve has supported all of these promotions so letís not think it was done without his financial help.

Iím sure next season he will need to do the same to keep us in The National League.

Can Dover afford the 40k fine ?  I thought they were claiming they didnít have the money to pay it and they would have to close up shop.

Dazza surely we have to thank Stephen Cleeve and his deep pockets for getting us to the pinnacle of Non League Football.    So letís be careful what we wish for.   Without his input and financing we could well still have been at Step 3

I see recall he has put in somewhere around 150k a year.   A real drop in the ocean compared to the likes of Man City and Chelsea, but he still put it in.

I see after being knockout of the play-offs, Chesterfield have released 13 players.   Leaving them with just 20 players on contract.   Madness for non League football, but thatís the World Kings Lynn are competing in.

When does the squad return for pre-season.  Plenty of runs along the beach to kick off with?

Maybe IC will be chucking in a good few trialists in the opening couple of Friendlies.  I guess the likes of Norwich and MK will come and play a different 11 in each half.

Downham got a friendly as a thank you for allowing Lynn Res to play their home games at the Memorial Field.   So understandable that Heacham will hopefully get a money spinner out of helping the club out.

As the Club have done away with a Reserve side I assume no Academy players will be loaned to play for  Heacham at level 8 (?).

More spin than Bull I would call it.  The fans like to hear positive stuff coming out of the club.   Of course at some point you have to deliver.

Ipswich now backed by big bucks  American owners could quite easily price the other two out of the market, if Carey is on the radar, as suggested.
