Letís also remember the Club has a massive debt to repay to The FA (?) of around £500k that was borrowed in the failed attempt to stay in the National League.  Hindsight they say is wonderful thing
What if the Hokey Cokey really is what itís all about ?

I seem to remember that £1 of the current ticket price was "ring fenced" (was that this season or last season?) to repay the debt, so if that is used as a reason for increasing next seasons admission charge, it shouldn't really come into it.

Also the statement about ticket prices being lowered for this season compared to the previous season................I should hope so........................ we are playing at a lower level than last season!

Don't think anything is being paid back on the Sport England loan at the moment, from memory the repayments don't kick in until next season.  Even then given the scale of 'subsidy'/'financial doping' required to keep us at NLN this season, let alone should we be back in the NL next year, there won't be any surplus from supporters to pay the loan back so will have to be additional money coming into the club from SC (or elsewhere)

First, congratulations to all of us for turning out on a freezing Tuesday.

Especially those for the third time in 8 days.

200 of the reduction were from away support.

Away supporters, including those from full-time clubs, constantly moan about our admission prices.

Our concession price is barely worthy the title "concession".

Well done in advance, those supporters making the trips to Kiddy and Brackley.

When, and only when, all of the above has been said and acknowledged, should any chairman or manager make comments about local people that don't attend. Failure to realise that will lead to the message being misunderstood or not being accepted as coming from a good place.

Then tell us what you intend to do to try and resolve the problems. That's called solution based management, as opposed to problem based management. Who, in our club is doing this?

I think the 4,500 is the number viewing the BBC Sports Non-league commentaries webpage - not a specific commentary.

There was no commentary for the first 20 minutes. I think Nick Bowler spent the time talking to an audience of one.
