Money loss by Boro345

Obviously the club is going to miss out on income and with players on contracts to pay this may put us in a awkward position, just seen Hyde United had set up an online shop so fans could still pay for things they get on match days such as virtual match tickets and virtual golden gamble. Maybe an idea the club can issue if fans were willing to donate?

My guess would be just Coulo and Wally. Could be one or two others too. I assume DK is on a contract.

The likes of South Shields and clubs in divisions above us who will have loads of players on contract and the ongoing costs of owning their own grounds are in a far worse position. It looks inevitable that many clubs will go to the wall. When the government bail-out money is announced Football clubs will be at the back of the queue.

It’s all incredibly bleak, e.g. if the current restrictions announced by the government yesterday have to be in place for 18 months (as many experts are predicting) then the 20/21 season is looking like a write-off too. When football does eventually recommence we could be looking at a major reorganisation of the leagues.

If this goes on for 18 months restructuring of football won’t even be on the radar! But more immediate as fans and/or owners the idea put forward of ‘donating’ home entrance fees for the remaining 4 games is a good one. Perhaps generate £20k. One hopes that the council will also help with out ground rent holidays.

I don’t think DK is on a contract, he is just on expenses. At least that is what I thought he said at the fans forum.
Pity we will miss the FC Utd gate which would have been our biggest of the season.

Plans by Nick Finch

I am not getting into a discussion on here so please don’t bother asking questions. However, we have a board meeting Thursday evening to put a plan in place. You will see various financial things being put in place soon (including some or all of those mentioned above). We understand that everyone must prioritise but if you can help with any, some or all the schemes it would help massively.

Keep safe everyone and Up the Boro!

Quite right Nick there is a right place to exchange sensitive information and this is not it but I am sure the Board will keep the supporters informed of how best they can help either through the media or direct contact.

Thanks for the update Nick and you are right in avoiding getting into a detailed discussion about the situation on here

However speaking for myself , and perhaps some others I’d make the following points :-

SAFC is a success story on and off the field and has a good reputation within the game.It is in everyone’s interest that SAFC survives the financial crisis brought about by the virus.

The scale of the crisis and the fragile finances of many clubs , even into the EFL means that a “shake out” of clubs is likely

The club has a number of stakeholders , fans, players,staff, Scarborough Council, sponsors all come quickly to mind and you may know of others.

All of us stakeholders need to be prepared to contribute financially at this time to ensure the survival of the club in whatever way we can. I and many like me I’m sure would be prepared to contribute to some form of “Justgiving” fund for example

Hopefully most of our costs are variable focussed on games being played,.

However for those personnel costs which are not variable, putting it bluntly, the fact that a large number of players and staff from other higher level clubs will probably soon be looking for a new employer ought to concentrate minds and as for stadium costs it’s hard to see an alternative use of the Flamstad which would generate similar income for the council

Finally good luck to you and your fellow directors in these difficult times

…and UTB
