Nuneaton resign from Southern League
« on: January 18, 2024, 03:25:11 PM »
Nuneaton Borough have announced  that they will be "withdrawing from this season's Southern Central Premier League" owing to 'insurmountable challenges in maintaining operations'


You don't know what you've got 'til it's gone

Next?   :dontknow:
If I ever get outta here I've thought of giving it all away,
to a registered charity, as all I need is a pint a day, if I ever get outta here.

Yet another reality check but when will club's at all levels realise that the only logical and sustainable way forward is to live within their means. More casualties will undoubtedly follow.

While you have owners who are prepared to run a full time squad of players and Management when averaging gates of under 1000, then cry wolf when they cannot afford to pay the bills, then these stories will always make for good headlines.

Always the fans who suffer.
What if the Hokey Cokey really is what itís all about ?

It's good that we have someone in charge that understands football finances and is such a good businessman otherwise we could get into a similar situation as Borough find themselves in.

I agree. If only Barrett had David Staff's commitment and application, that would be some player?

I agree that it is the majority of fans who suffer but there are some at all levels who just want 'success' regardless of the source of the funding: the end justifying the means? Let's hope that the new investment works out but with South America and the USA having been explored, where next,
North Korea?

Very true Rod.

Has it been said anywhere exactly what this "investor" is receiving in return for his money?

Is he now or will he become a shareholder?

Apart from exposure to a small part of Norfolk, what exactly is in it for him?

What benefit will he receiving?

As a linnet who lives in Taunton sad to hear that they were served with a winding up order yesterday. Hopefully they will rise from the ashes as the linnets did. Just shows the sorry state of non-league football today.

B&G....transparency, logic and common sense??? What attracted such an international investor to little old KLTFC? What is in it for him / them? Or did he just feel sorry for us and / or was in thrall to the owner's compelling sales pitch?
