General Discussion / NL hoping to continue?

The National League plans to introduce mandatory lateral flow testing across all 66 clubs from the week commencing 15th February.

Tests will be provided at no cost to clubs, who will be instructed to test twice a week.

The plan still needs final approval from the League Board

General Discussion / Hollywood FC
« on: January 28, 2021, 12:06:11 PM »
Two "fans" of Wrexham based Hollywood FC have donated part of the their planned 2,000,000 investment into the Club, prior to the completion of its purchase. This will enable the Club to complete the signing of Players prior to the transfer window closing.

I wonder if they have taken advantage of the recent bailouts. If so, and they now have money available, will they do the decent thing and return it for the benefit of the other, more needy, Clubs?

Apparently they are hoping to sign players before the weekend.

I thought this piece taken form the Home page was interesting:

"It's been a while since Stockport made their last visit to The Walks. To be precise a mere 108 years, 1 month, and 12 days.
On 14th December 1912 County, a professional Second Division Football League side took on Lynn of the Norfolk & Suffolk League in the fifth qualifying round of the FA Cup.

It was a match that might have been staged at Edgeley Park, Stockport but the Lynn committee declined the offer of 50 plus half of the gate money over 100 to switch the tie".

General Discussion / The options

National League clubs have been asked their views on these options:

1) Clubs take on long term low-interest loans with initial payment holidays

2) The League takes on the loan & gives clubs grants, with future League central payments to clubs then reduced

3)Suspend the season

General Discussion / V Hornchurch

It would appear that the subject of streaming the match against Hornchurch is creating some interest.

General Discussion / Is it time to call a Halt (Poll)
« on: January 14, 2021, 12:27:11 PM »
With the Country in the eye of the Covid storm and games at National League being cancelled left right and centre, would it make sense to draw a line under this season or at the very least suspend Football only at the levels where non League Football is still being played?

With no fans likely to be allowed to watch games anytime soon. Money to run the game is seemingly in short supply and what monies are to be made available maybe in the form of loans.

What do Football Supporters think ?

General Discussion / The season

Covid has halted the non-league season at Step 3 and below.

Conversations will take place between leagues over the coming days before the FA Council meets to discuss the situation.

There is increasing acknowledgment that completing the season as planned may not be possible.
