So they are getting a government bailout in Grant's not loans and will start on the weekend.

Looks like we will have to avoid a place in the bottom two this season after all

Putting aside out own immediate predicament, I think this is brilliant news for non-league football as a whole. We know from our own time down in the darkest corners of the Conference just how easy it is to be forgotten about.

Good news for them, and good news for football. The pyramid needs to be kept intact for the good of the game, not to mention all those players who are worried where their next pay packet is coming from.

Looks like Harry Cardwell can reboot his career now at Chorley. Chorley's CEO has detailed how much the club has spent on upgrading facilities and how they hope to bring live coverage of games to fans. Interesting to note that almost all staff and players are individually sponsored. I guess the two players not sponsored are recent arrivals.

Yeah this is actually good news for the footy pyramid, despite the risk of potential relegation it brings, hopefully that won't be an issue.

Great news. Hopefully Billy Bunter's postal order is on its way to the EFL.

He should know that the 'terraces' are no longer there then and BP is all seated.

You know what he means. Whilst the terrace isn’t there, it really wouldn’t hurt if there were a couple of hundred fans stood on the flat corners. But it won’t happen.

As for Vickers, I saw him at either the Scunny or Exeter game, not sure. Spoke to him too. Putting politics aside, nice guy.

Scunny away?

Though he’s the wrong political colour for me at least he’s raising the question which is something the “member” for Great Grimsby has neglected to do.

You are correct. A little hasty on my part. It just seemed a rather peripheral question when everyone else was stressing the urgency of acting on the successful pilots and allowing some fans in to help clubs survive. I don't doubt he's a loyal supporter and I think he was traduced unnecessarily in Findlater's article which hit the mark generally but was over personal in describing Vickers as inane.
I have never lived in N.E.Lincs so I can't comment on his effectiveness as an MP.

Martin is a nice enough chap and very approachable. I used to work with him donkeys years ago, before he took up his career in politics and I actually inherited the job he did when he left here to set up his own business. (A newsagents/card shop down Freeman Street)

Just been confirmed that the National League will be starting on Saturday after they got a 10 million pounds loan, secured over 3 months. Good news.

Good news, though I always wanted us back in the EFL there’s some great clubs in semi pro and lots who worked hard to make us welcome when we visited.

I disagree. It puts us in a perilous position. Where’s the money for the EFL?

The National League deal keeps our pyramid intact. If they hadn't started we could have ended up with a closed shop like Scotland. Government and the Premier League are obviously disagreeing about who bails league clubs out. Realistically, I suspect they will both contribute to it.

Scotland isn't a closed shop. They have the Highland and Lowland league feeding into the league via a playoff.

It was a "closed shop" last season thankfully. Otherwise Brechin would have been playing in The Highland League this season. (I assume they would have gone into The Highland League rather than the Lowland)

He was there on New Years Day as I almost bumped in to him on the corner of Imperial Avenue when he was being interviewed on TV by Simon Clark / Look North ahead of our game at home to Salford
