Morning all.

An update for you. Checked in with ground. No problems at present with pitch etc. Passing snow flurries with a bitter wind. Please keep an eye on our social media feeds for any further updates.

Morning all.

Aware of the possibility of some bad weather over the weekend. However as things stand there are no problems at this time and no pitch inspection is planned for today. We have had some rain since Tuesday but not large amounts like last week.

However I do suggest that you please keep an eye in the morning on our social media feeds as well as an ear on local radio - Radio Norfolk and KLFM -  who will bring updates when we have them.

Just to try and put some balance here.

I was unable to travel on Saturday. Milly was due to go but his lift cancelled at the last minute so he was also unable to travel. Usually one of us would do an EDP report. However when we cannot make it an attempt will be made by the paper for a local journo to cover. Failing this they would use a match report from the home team. It appears this time though this has not happened.

I also feel the need to set the record straight on our match day eating habits! On the say so of Stephen we are allowed a half time tea/coffee and a sandwich  from the upstairs lounge. Anything else such as hot food, soft drinks, beer etc we ( and rightly so) pay for. It's remarks and comments like some I have seen in this thread  that create a problem and bad feeling.

I am human and I make mistakes like everyone else. Some of the lines of communication from the club could be better I admit. However we volunteer our time as and when we can to try and make some difference to the club. We try our best. If that's not good enough for some of you well I'm sorry.

Mallard I think for once we must agree to disagree! Commercial activity and securing potential sponsors are two different areas for me personally.  My figure was for a full time media officer.... the going rate I hear!
I really cannot comment on commercial matters as it's not within my remit.
Finally for today I'm sure you can remember our cup tie with Oldham? Well on that evening I was told that by the Sky TV producer and a certain Joe Royle that our press arrangements put many Premier League clubs to shame...... !Onwards and upwards!

Adam what I actually said was I don't agree with everything the chairman writes. But it would be fair to say I agree with a fair amount of what he says. I will be looking into the spelling mistakes and as to why they are occurring more regularly.
S2S. Thank you for your comments. Yes, probably too long if you believe what you read! The shoulders are very broad though!9

Mallard we are speaking on the subject of newspaper columns and should have news shortly.
It's my opinion that media and marketing are two separate areas. From my side of the fence for a step 3 club our media output is fine. The key here is that we are all volunteers giving our time to the club for nothing. When I see needless swipes at people who give their time , often several hours a week , and speaking for myself, incurring expense which the club doesn't pay, I wonder if it's all worth it sometimes. The club has a small, but dedicated, off field team who give hundreds of hours of unpaid work each month. The club CANNOT survive without them.
When Stephen feels he has the funding to support full time media and PR people we will I guess have a chat. I'm not holding my breath.....

Ah Die hard..... giving me a lecture on one spelling mistake but then proceeding to write a sentence  that doesn't  make sense... ' If they the responsibility??'. A score draw I think.
As for the chairman's notes they are written by him and they are his views and opinions. For the record I don't agree with everything that's written but that's my opinion.
A few weeks back you made a statement that, in your opinion, the club's media department had ' shot itself in the foot this season'. I asked you to qualify the statement and to date nothing. I also said that if anyone had any ideas or something they would like to have a chat about - media related - to come and have a chat on a matchday. Again to date I have spoken to no one so I have to assume we're all doing our job's correctly.
People keep banging on about PR departments and full time media staff well that's fine if you're looking to pay out 40k a year on that kind of thing!
Now then rant over and let's get behind Ian and the lads ahead of next weekend.

I agree with your sentiments Mallard. I wasn't aware of the rule until Saturday myself!

Yes, I worked for Martin Rogers at Saddlebow Rd from 1984. My first big meeting there was the UK round of the World Team Cup. England, Australia, New Zealand and USA if I remember. Martin was a good promoter and an excellent journalist. His son Martin Jnr worked for a while as a sports writer with the Daily Mirror. Martin now lives on the Gold Coast in Australia I think. I picked up some good tips from him to be fair.

Clarification on this should be announced shortly. My understanding is that Attleborough do not have floodlights.

Mallard, Admin has answered your question a 100% better than I could! And he's correct of course!
I served my early working years at Saddlebow Rd under the guidance of Cyril Crane and the Littlechild family! Happy days.

Birc you cannot call a game of just cos the forecast is bad! We'd still be finishing the season in August... a week before the new one begins!
Point taken on travel costs, hotels booked etc, a real shame but it cannot be helped. I was keen to point out in my earlier post that Gosport did nothing wrong yesterday with everything being done by the book.

Birc95.. When we left  at 8:30 the pitch was playable with no problems. 30 minutes or so of heavy rain just after 9am made the pitch waterlogged. We received a call on the coach around 9:30am from Gosport to say they were arranging to get a ref in too inspect and duly the call came just after 10am to say the game was off. Gosport did all they could in the circumstances - to say anything else is untrue. As a club we are more than happy with how the situation was dealt with.
We were all disappointed with the call off but we draw a line under it and move on to Tuesday evening.

Admin I am sure it was a game against Dudley Town. Maybe in the chairmanship time of Colin Nichols?
