For all clubs ( at all levels below PL) survival to fight another day is the priority

Without knowing the full details of our finances I suspect that our Fixed Costs are limited and that most of out costs are Variable centred on each game played - if so we are reasonably placed

I really miss going to games , especially as we have got the club back in Scarborough playing at a decent level in a stadium that many full time clubs would envy

However we have to.bite the bullet, play our part in driving down the virus so that PERHAPS starting next September we may look forward to a reasonably normal resumption of football

In the meantime I believe the priority is to support the Board who have a very difficult task keeping our heads above water

This poll was good fun and applause for those that ran it I found it interesting that only 4 were regulars in the last promotion side and first season in NPL premier. The team that didn’t quite make it would be strong also and wouldn’t like to bet who’d win. Again, as I said before, it is what it is.

Requests from teams to play by Tony Brown

Posted: 19/12/2020 at 11:12:01, 126 views.

“Following the announcement made on 10th December that confirmed the return of spectators to grounds in Tier 3 areas, we subsequently received a high number of requests from NPL teams asking to play league fixtures from Saturday 19th December".

The above statement was made by the Directors of the Northern Premier League last Tuesday, a day before the new Covid 19 restrictions were to be announced by the Government, seems to rail against the Trident Leagues agreement to recommence playing matches on the 9th January at the earliest. Several clubs have objected strongly to the ad hoc re-start of games citing lack of forethought, lack of income, lack of catering facilities and many other reasons. It is therefore most interesting to notice that considering the “high number of requests …. to play" there is only one match in the Premier Division going ahead!

Unless the NPL falls in line with the other two members of the Trident Leagues, which they agreed to, it is more than likely that any grants, subsidies, loans that are going to be available will be nullified or objected by the remaining two leagues.

So, once again the league announces that fixtures can resume in advance of the periodic review and guidance issued by the government.

I’m sure that makes sense in their world…

In the meantime scores of volunteers across the NPL are now left with the task of arranging matches / travel / ground safety negotiations with local councils and health authorities, all against a backdrop of continuing uncertainty.

It would be hard to make it up.

At the moment I can’t see Boro and Lancaster agreeing to a game at such short notice, in which case our next game would be away at Morpeth (no away fans) and our next home game would be South Shields on New Years Day

But like this entire year, it’s a moveable feast

The order of this is a nonsense. Step 3 can have 15% of minimum level capacity, i.e. 300. Clubs can apply to SGSA to have it based on ground capacity and for Boro, if granted, that may push it up to circa 450. Still not enough I’d have thought. The sooner we have formal acceptance that the season will have to be (at best) reformated the better.

From the most recent NPL statement: “Whilst the league board has every sympathy with clubs experiencing financial difficulties, its primary responsibility lies with the competition as a whole".

As if there is no relationship between the former and the latter…

I hope those words are read back to the League Management Committee at the NPL Annual General Meeting and an explanation sought.

In most spheres of life or business there would be some kind of reflection upon words, decisions, and actions.

LMC accountability? Unlikely.

Today The Trident Leagues issued the following statement. by Old Git

Posted: 4/12/2020 at 21:10:31, 109 views.

Following the statement issued by the Isthmian, Northern Premier and Southern Football Leagues yesterday, further clarification can now be given in relation to the voting following the Zoom meetings held by all 3 Trident Leagues with their Member Clubs to discuss the impact of the raising of the lockdown on 2nd December.

There were 224 Clubs voting across the 3 Leagues and of these 172 agreed with the proposition to continue the pause in fixtures, 51 disagreed and there was 1 abstention. Broken down by League, 57 Clubs in the Northern Premier League voted to agree with 4 disagreeing, 68 Clubs in the Southern League agreed with 14 disagreeing and in the Isthmian League it was much closer with 47 Clubs agreeing, 33 disagreeing and 1 abstention.

The “Agree” vote was therefore 76% and it has been agreed that the three Leagues will not sanction fixtures at this time.

It is intended that the situation is kept under review in line with Government review on the Tier allocations and restrictions. Accordingly, the next review is set for 16 December and then 30 December. It is the hope of all the Leagues that a date in January can be set for a return to fixtures with Clubs who wish being allowed to play before that date but this will not be until there is a change in the Tiers and/or some progress in the funding of the Clubs at this level.

The Government has allocated £25m to Sport England to fund Steps 1 to 6 of the National Leagues System, of which £14m is set for Steps 3-6 but is heavily weighted in favour of loans, not grants. The FA is working tirelessly with DCMS and Sport England to have the funding presented as Grants. However, these negotiations take time, and it is not expected to have an answer or clarification of details of even the loans until mid-January.

The deep concern of all involved in the NLS is that circumstances may mean that it is not possible to conclude the current format of competition in a manner in which promotion and relegation can be achieved throughout the whole pyramid with Step 2 being brought up to 48 Clubs and Step 4 brought up to 240 Clubs.

If, therefore, no progress is made by the Government on the Tiers in either of the two December reviews, it is the intention of the Alliance Committee to circulate those concerned with a survey to gather the views of the Clubs as how best to finish the season. Options will include an alternative format competition and extending the season possibly into June 2021. However the implications of all such proposals will involve the cost of players contracts and the ability of some clubs to continue playing because of other issues of grounds and the need to prepare grass pitches for the following season.

The Leagues are mindful of the needs of all Clubs and are striving to find a solution which is fair to all.

The Trident Leagues have issued this joint statement.

The Clubs in membership of the Northern Premier, Southern and Isthmian Leagues (the Trident Leagues) met earlier this week to consider the challenges and issues brought about by the reintroduction of Tiers after the raising of the nationwide lockdown with effect from yesterday.

The clubs were asked to vote on a proposition that the pause in fixtures be continued with a regular review in light of changes to the Tiers and/or grants becoming available.

The total votes cast by the 224 Clubs show a substantial number of Clubs in agreement with the proposition.

The matter has been considered today and is subject to comment by The FA.

A further statement will be issued in due course.
