I wonder what that means for the scholarship too. The kids have been told they will be training and playing games on the walks pitch. I guess they will be moved elsewhere too?

I wonder if rather this announcement is linked to the scholarship kids training and playing on the walks pitch.

Confirmed Gateshead have been removed from the National League.  Could be a shuffle round of step 2 now, and beyond.

Possibly now unconfirmed, under new ownership.

Got ya Lough, sorry misunderstood. I understand Gateshead will be re-admitted at Step 4. So hopefully thatís where the shuffling should stop.

No worries. Edited it a bit to make it clearer.

Would they not offer a reprieve to the side who finished 4th in The National League Premier ?

They will, Aldershot, but that then creates the Step 2 vacancy explored in my previous post.

Gloucester would be the prime candidate to switch South you'd imagine, though it will depend who they reprieve at Step 2, to take Aldershotís now vacant spot.

Ashton finished 20th in the NLN on 35 points. If so, straight swap.

Truro finished 20th in the NLS on 39 points, If they're given a step 2 reprieve, they go South, probably Gloucester stay north. - Probably this.

Or possibly Warrington, given they did win a Play-Off final, and a better points haul than Met Police. I know that the step 4 to 3, 5 teams from 7 debacle had the proviso that vacancies that emerged in the league above would initially go to the 6th, then 7th play-off winner, rather than reprieve relegated teams. Don't know if 3 to 2 and the super play-offs had that caveat. That'd be a straight swap with Gloucester.

And then the cascade affect further down the leagues.

Whatís the saying... In football the best way  to make a small fortune is is to start of with a large one.

Iím pleased SC is getting a lump sum from Peterborough for FBT. Gives him a good head start for next season.

A good head start for funding the ground grading improvements.

That's the trouble with the ride; some poor sods never get paid when insolvency / bankruptcy arrive! I'm a pragmatist and believe in business that has more income than expenditure!!  Seen 6 events like this since 1960, and who picked up the pieces!! Care for the Clubs wellbeing and existence is crucial, or back to the United Counties again!!

The boom and bust cycle is why Iíd rather any FBT dividend goes into investing in the ground, rather than subsidising this years playing budget, to provide a tangible long term benefit to the club. Especially in a season where promotion is unlikely, and only 2 teams are getting relegated.

Taking money at a bar is completely different to making money at a bar, just ask the ex landlords of the 18 pubs that are closing each week in the uk. I totally agree that a good bar adds to match day atmosphere but selling a hundred or so pints of beer on a Saturday afternoon will generate very little if any profit by time staff costs etc are taken into consideration. I just don't understand the infatuation by some people on here about beer. There's more PROFIT to be made in tea,coffee and food.  :cheers:

Costings for refreshments are what they are. The issue is with getting them at half time. The cafe could really use a third til, and if you were hankering for a pie or a sausage roll much after 2:30, youíre normally out of luck.

Thereís certainly potential to better maximise sales (and therefore profits). Wonít address all the issues. But an extra £500 a match is £10,500 by the end of the season. Would help fill some (small) holes in the budget.

Agreed About pedro he's like the steve lewis of today definitely one that hopefully will be around for a while yet all keepers have bloopers but he can be class!

Think most on here have the right ideas, genuinely believe it's most important to keep gash & marriott still think these two can cause a lot of problems in the next league.

What about that Jake reed at lowestoft Seemed to score for fun last year at one point he had 14 goals in 12 games.

definitely need to shore up the defence somehow, & not convinced the midfield is strong enough to battle against some of these northern teams who will leave you battered and bruised but we'll see. Leave it in Ian's capable hands & look forward to announcements!

 :cup2: :cup2:
I agree that we need more grunt in the middle.

Quigley type player who is not afraid to mix it. :comeon:

But with a bit more skill than Quigs.

In my mind, our squad can fall into 3 groups

Definitely Keep (try to):

Clunan (gets some grief from some sections, but quietly makes the side tick)

Definitely Release (if we can):

Hawkins - too inconsistent
Parker - isnít getting games
Limb - hasnít seemed good enough; whatever spark he used to have isnít on display.

Everyone else, would be happy enough if they stayed, wouldnít be too disappointed if they left.

He certainly isnít in West Bromís plans. Guess the question is, would he rather spend a year or two warming the bench in League 1/2, or be a key player at Lynn for a year or two.

Is playing for Tasman United in New Zealands top division.

Might be old news to some, but first I've heard of it, and couldn't find another mention in the former linnets thread.

Hope he gets some more game time at Walsall, too talented to be wasted on a bench at this stage of his career.
