David never lets me down with his measured and honest approach. Really does look at things from both sides of the fence. He is a credit to the club and the town in general.

We are certainly very, very lucky to have him as our Chairman. What he has done for the club is unbelievable, and all for our long term future.

We could name a street after him, or a corner ;)

What about a campaign for freedom of the town, or whatever award the borough has for showing its appreciation?

Perhaps someone can tell me?  The letter submitted by various clubs, concerning making the season null and void, have the undersigned clubs got an ulterior motive?  Are these clubs struggling (form wise) in their respective leagues?  I have not read the letter, but the cynic in me thinks a void season would benefit such clubs.  I am sure some of my forum buddies will enlighten me ;)

Hi Mick, 12 teams in our league signed the letter and not one of them is in the top ten, they are as follows.
Telford   Played 17  place in league 13th  Points 19
Alfreton            15                        21st            12     
BPA                  17                        14th            18
C/Ashton           17                        16th            17
Darlo                11                         19th            13
Farsley              17                         13th            21
Gateshead         14                         10th            21
Guisely              13                         20th            13
Hereford            12                         15th            17
Kettering            14                        18th             15
Southport           14                        17th            16
Spennymoor       13                         12               20

Sorry Gateshead are 10th. But along with all the others are showing very little form. Make of it what you wil but it does appear to me that they could all feel they have nothing to play for.  UTP

Cheers Mel. Looking at the list,  it looks pretty evident.  Saying that, I think the league should never have started. This covid is one big worry especially for us old buggers  :D

According to the letter from the DCMS funding is available in the form of grants for clubs who don't want the loans, so BPA are covered.
Surely clubs can't get away with voting to end the season if they are covered financially, but are having a bad season so far?  ???

Maybe some clubs don't want to open up their finances for scrutiny to apply for a Loan?

More voting and meetings expected this week, with the National League having a separate say to North and South divisions. Not surprisingly Chorley are in favour of continuing as they have all their FA Cup money. As previously pointed out there is little incentive for teams near the bottom of our league to continue.
