I hope he doesn’t go, but I wouldn’t begrudge him wanting him to work with a full time club. It says something of his calibre, that I think our promotion hopes would dissipate if henleft.

I do wonder if being given a run in first-team too soon effected him long term, or if his promise was never quite there.

Dread to think where the queue will start when the likes of Boston/York  come calling.

If the work on Sutton Bridge gets delayed; in Boston.

Surely the profit margin of buying at the BoxOffice is greater than buying online ?  Every penny counts.  Stephen Cleeve needs to upgrade the BoxOffice to get people through it quicker.  Why can’t there be another ‘BoxOffice’ even if the tickets are pre-printed to bring the numbers waiting down ?

Linked to the new away entrance and turnstiles perhaps? Would at least shift some of the queue elsewhere.

But they will still have to queue to get tickets!

They would but having and additional ticket office booth somewhere else would ameliorate the issue. Wouldn’t solve it, but 4 windows should be somewhat quicker than 3, ( or 2 as it was the other week). Plus if we get to the full segregation heights of Step 1 (still a ways off,) fairly sure that a separate ticket office area is recommended, as well as a separate ingress and seating/standing, toilets and catering. The biggest improvements the Walks needs, is for the non-Lynn fans.

It appeared the Alfreton no10 was having a tug at McAuley and the  he tried to swot him off and caught him.  The 10 made a right meal of it and the ref bought it.  Rory did give him a decision to make mind.

How long is the ban for violent conduct and when does it kick in ?

3 games minimum for violent conduct. Could in theory be more if the league thinks it warrants it, but don’t think that’ll apply in this case.

Fair point on the live feed, the away fans have been given the hospital end with no undercover area...surely a better solution needs to be found it wont be long until the english weather catches everyone out!

Should probably have the hospital end and a 1/4 - 1/3 of the terrace.


My solution would be to run a line of fencing down the stand at the Tennyson Road end level with the end of the terrace,and mirror that in the small stand. This would give visitors cover,use of the cafe and toilets,leaving the home fans the rest of the ground and the bar? :scarf: :scarf:

The only issue I could see with that, is that the away fans would have to go in through the main entrance, which would miss some of the point fof those games that need strict segregation.

If the worst happens and  both Bury and Bolton are removed from the Football League, would these ultimately mean 4 clubs will be promoted from the National or just the usual 2 with no relegation for the 2 teams who finish bottom of Division 2 ? If it’s the former could it mean 3 sides from National Leagues North n South will gain promotion.

Either no relegation from League 2, or four Promoted from the National (or 1 relegated from League 2 and 3 promoted from the National), would create two additional vacancies in the National. An extra place each for the North and South would seem likely. If both Bury and Bolton vanish.

It depends where the inevitable Bury/Bolton phoenix clubs get placed. Do they get have to go down to Step 4, like Hereford did (I think), or will they be allowed to slot in at step 2/3? Who knows.

Not wishing to tempt fate but is the promotion process the same as the league we came from i.e. 1 automatic promotion + play-offs?

The champions are automatically promoted to the National League. A second promotion place goes to the winners of play-offs involving the teams finishing in second to seventh place (expanded from four to six teams in the 2017–18 season).


4th v 7th, winner playing 3rd
5th v 6th, winner playing 2nd

Then the two left play each other for the last spot.

I think.

And only the bottom team gets relegated this year, as it’s to go from a 22 to a 24 team league with the pyramid restructuring. From next season, there’ll be four relegation spots.

Though who knows how far Bolton/Bury shockwaves may go when it comes to promotions and relegations up and down the pyramid.

Can someone please explain what WeShop actually does in Plain English and not the gobbledy-gook jargon used in the article.  :dontknow: :dontknow: :dontknow:

Convince people to buy more stuff, by sharing who's bought the same stuff.

I'm struggling to see what the benefits of a partnership with a semi-pro team in Gibraltar are?

Aside from cheaper holiday accommodation.

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.
