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.

Martin Vickers , speaking in Parliament, just mentioned using former terraces when fans return. When was he last at BP?!

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.
