Thanks for the inputs.  Yes, I do appreciate the problems that could arise, either through a degree of apathy, or from the point of personal financial circumstances.  However, to simplify the idea, and to make support and donations consistent, I’m basically suggesting £7.50 a week from those in a position to donate, AND provide such a high level of football when possible...  Just for fun, if the York crowd was 4,000, and we get promoted which may attract say half that crowd, and the “behind closed doors” continues for, say a year, we would have £7.50 x 2,000 x 52 weeks = £780,000 !!  That would all have gone in the war chest.  So, are there 2,000 out there who would love to see National League top level football who would be willing and able to set-up and pay £7.50 a week for a year to do it ?  It’s a couple of pints and a coffee a week !!

Yes, Dazza, I see your point entirely.  My idea was probably a bit wishful thinking, especially in the current circumstances, and those that could even be added when we try to build trade deals worldwide.  However, I do feel that fund-raising initiatives need to be focused by an aim, rather than just a final target, if they are to achieve consistent support and donations.  I do wish the current war chest success, but I haven’t yet contributed, although I shall do if that consistency becomes apparent.

Fair comment, B & G.  The existing fund though, IMO, isn’t focused or likely to bring in regular donations.  I just feel that the “Admission” charge would make it regular and consistent.  BTW, I do appreciate that many people will feel the pinch, or even lose jobs in the current situation, but still perhaps many could do this...  ah well - each to their own opinion...

Radical plan coming up that will probably be stamped on rather than adopted, but here it comes.  The York crowd of 4K showed just what potential KLT have to attract very impressive crowds when “big games” turn up.  If we are fortunate enough to have last season’s incredible effort rewarded with promotion, “big games” will be available on a regular basis.  There are supporters and neutrals who are obviously able to pay the relevant price basically once a fortnight, to watch a home game.  The money they pay must be budgeted into their general life expenditure, and they have not had that outlay in recent weeks and months.  Here’s the rub...  From now on, why couldn’t or wouldn’t a high proportion of regular supporters start paying their usual entrance fee, money they have already shown they can afford, and are usually willing to pay.  If the average outlay in normal times is, say, £15 Per fortnight, would those  supporters be willing to start putting that money again into the club, into a special fund and account, at the rate of £15 a fortnight, having set up (usually digitally) a payment system.  What a boost to the club, the Chairman, and players that input would be, with a likely excellent season to follow (eventually !).  Ironically, I don’t believe football should re-start until the virus is vanquished - but we could do this to build the club in a big way....   I’ll sit back for the brickbats !

Any knowledge of Simon Power ?  I personally think he was the standard we will need in the National, should we get there.  He was outstanding in some games, although I recall (was it) Gloucester stymying him by a forest of legs in a ten man defence when needed.  But they stopped all our team that day.  Any news appreciated....

I’m not celebrating yet, but fingers are well and truly crossed.....  If we do get the promotion, two thoughts have arrived.....   1.  That crowd of 4K against York Might well be in jeopardy, and the non-league world would be thoroughly jolted.....  and 2.  In this era of statue removal, quite rightly IMO, A NEW one of SC should be sculpted and erected in the middle of the Tuesday Market Place !!!!

Nobody mentioned politicians.  It’s circus performers that we’re cited !....

Lots of player’s names mentioned on this thread appear to ones that some have doubts about, or don’t mention at all.  Without involving myself in the various opinions, I’ll just say that IMO any resultant squad that does not include the names of Ward, Kelly, Power and Marriott will be a lower standard squad.  Just to expand a little, I believe Smith  and McCauley are easily our best CB pairing, with Ward as back-up rather than Fryatt.  I am still surprised and disappointed that we have seen the last of Nathan Fox.  Very good news that Barrows is staying and both Pedros !  Problem is, I don’t think it would be safe to start football again at any level until we are no longer a country with one of the world’s largest death statistics.  Stay safe.  BTW, very pleased to see that our Chairman appears to have retained his interest and support - probably our best signing overall....

Any news on Power ?  Sensational in a couple of games, and can’t see teams keeping him quiet for long - even at NL level...

My glass is no longer half full because I downed my 3rd and final 5 minutes ago - hence this post of what some will call doom and gloom, but I call reality.  I can imagine no football at all until Sept 21 at the earliest.  Even then, I feel the competitions at every level could only re-commence in the same position they were at the start of this very unfortunate season.  I’ve no idea how the finances of clubs, Chairmen, Directors, players, and workers can be calculated, but must hope that they will all engage generosity and good grace in the discussions to come.  So, no answers, just hopes for all concerned....

Very disappointing that football cannot be concluded satisfactorily at any level.  But surely we have to face the fact that there can be no more games this season, and probably none next season either.  We are in a very serious situation for mankind itself, and any decision to put wishes ahead of reality could be disastrous for life as we know it.  If we, as a species, are determined to keep reality ahead of wishful thinking, we may be able to enjoy the lighter side of life again when it is safe to do so, in perhaps a couple of years.  I realise the vast majority of people do hold reality as the most important viewpoint, but I’m just trying to put it in a nutshell, at least my own !  And of course, my fingers are crossed for our club and all the personnel involved, starting with the Chairman.....and, personally, I feel the season should be cancelled and wiped altogether....

Don’t think the question can include not considering skill or ability.  I know a bloke who is one hell of a hole digger;  he puts his back into from 7 in the morning and never gives less than 100%.  He’s just the same on a football pitch.  Trouble is, he’s ruddy hopeless at football !

Yes Colin.  I remember those days we’ll, and the players.  As I recall, a typical team would have been Walls; Proverbs, Baker; Williamson, Bone, Wright; Bacon, Edwards, Donovan, King, Partridge.  The Southern Premier was much stronger, in terms of “bigger” clubs than the one the club left recently, with a number of member clubs having since moved into the EFL, and others into the National League top division.  Good days.  Crowds were bigger, ( though ours are catching up these days).  End terraces we’re substantially bigger, ( a nerdish thing of mine, I know !). I fervently hope that, if we come out of these very difficult weeks and months relatively unscathed in terms of health and finance, we can make the climb up to a level reached by many of our peer opponents from those days.....

Very good way of describing it, B & G.......
