Is Halifaxís game Tuesday night off as well ?

Is this a cock up by the club or the health and Safety officer.  All seems a little cloak and dagger

No Halifax is still on. Statement reads to me that Aaron Jones has not been around anyone at the club since the 22nd December so past the 14 day period (or 10 day, whichever it is today!!)

Little confused Paul, doesnít take much these days.  Are you saying Saturdays game v Halifax shouldnít have taken place ?  If so why did the the H&S officer allow this to happen.

Are we no longer going to get post match interviews now that Bev Archer has gone to Wroxham ?  Surely someone else can hold a camera for a few minutes.

Games are going to come think and fast.   Next  up the side who came up with us this season, via the play offs.  Certainly started the season with a bang and up their in the play off places.

So does IC go again with the format that has grabbed us two well deserved draws against decent opposition or does he rotate it ?  Given that we have a heavy programme of games and a big 21 man squad.

Only one man can really answer this.   So Dilly will be go defensive line up or try and stick it to them with those slippery Nipsterís ?

Surely Barwick and The NL directors would have the iís dotted and Tís crossed with regard to whether the money from Jan onwards was in the form of a loan or a gift.   How would they have agreed to start the season without something firmly in place enabling clubs to reach the end.

Reading the NLP today it seems the Ďhopeí is that some of the money will be in gift form and not all in loans.

Having said that sone NL clubs are saying that a halt should be called to the season.  In some cases players are refusing to train or play.   One player for example has a pregnant wife.    Who can blame him.

Dilly these are tough times for football clubs.  So if you could see your way to offer your services foc then Iím sure this would be most appreciated by The Club.

Whatever team IC goes with today Iím feel sure will get us something out of this game.  Head says 1-1 heart says we could Nick this one 2-1

Regarding the DCMS/Sport England 'Winter Survival Fund':

The National League met with the FA this week to emphasise the need for their allocation to be in grants rather than loans.

I understand the FA is also 'pushing very hard' for Steps 3-6 to receive the funding in grants.


Why are the FA only pushing for grants for 3-6 and not steps 1-6.  Ok they have had a 10m hand already but they have much higher overheads. 

With the expectation that step 3 and under will be abandoned and declared Null and Void why do these clubs need all these millions ?

If the money is not forthcoming to the NL in the form of a gift then the plug might as well be pulled on those Leagues as well.  Better than letting clubs go bust.   Or maybe the prudent clubs have tucked some of their of the 10m away for a rainy day.

If we are one of the clubs deemed to have been Ďoverpaidí,  letís hope the new regulators donít try and even things up as Bernsteinís  independent review committee deemed to fair and suggested.

Also if the new monies are not going to be available until Jan 15th (at the earliest) how are those clubs that pay weekly meant to meet their running costs etc ?

The proposed new loan arrangement is a one of figure of 11m.   How will that be enough to support 66 clubs until the End of the season !  Will Clubs be prepared to take on such huge loans.

Trouble Tímill ahead for some clubs ?   We should hopefully ok as we have one of the lowest budgets in the League, allegedly.

Pretty poor show that no communication is being offered with games now being played with no knowledge of any support monies being available.  Even if it does, how far will a one of payment of the suggested 11m be to get clubs through to the return of fans  which prob wonít be this season.?

This could really sort out the haveís and have notís.  Those with wealthy owners prepared to prop up their clubs and those that canít/wonít.

For Lynn that could equate to 100/200 under out current structure.  Lucky we have SC on the rudder.

Have to say itís a brave decision by the Chairman to add two new bodies in a week when the whole country goes into lockdown and at the same time as the initial 3 months of Gov money ends.  The Chairman must be confident that the new offer of money from Sport England is going to come through in decent numbers in the form of a grant and not a loan.   If not is he thinking he will find it all himself ?

Fair point. Guess all the other clubs in this league who have signed players in the last week are confident of the money coming through as well.


Seemingly not all.   Chester seem somewhat concerned.
