Just out of interest what roughly would the club have made from each of the 3 play off games ? & how much did we receive for actually winning the final play off game ?

Does it really matter? We do regularly ask “how much have WE made” from season tickets, playoffs, away cup games etc, but it all gets lost somewhere, and ultimately it’s Stockwood and Pettit who decide whether or not it goes to the manager, it’s actually none of our business, because it’s not our ‘business’.

Anyway, it all goes to Fenty until he’s paid off, and until we’re told that’s happened, let’s assume it hasn’t.

The National League released a waffling statement that profits from the final went to member clubs but didn't divulge so we've probably made very little from the £600k+ raised in ticket revenue there. Gate receipts for the quarter finals and semi finals were split evenly between play-off teams I think, so again, very little.

I actually think us fans are better off not knowing because it will be a pittance.

The main reason for asking was some one told me that after club expenses that the excess money from each game went back to the National league to be shared between all clubs, i wondered if that was actually true. I was interested to know how much the winner of the play off did actually receive, just out of interest.

Yeah it’s true. Grimsby fans got ripped off to subsidise other clubs. It’s completely outrageous.

Yeah that league will miss us , we filled every away end at some point.
It does seem a bit of a scam that we have 15000 fans paying what must have been at least £100 quid each for a day out at the final and our club get nothing for it.

I think the club shop was a little bit caught short too as they didn’t really have much stock left to capitalise with.
The clubs and fans need more than 5 days notice to plan for a London final , I suppose it doesn’t matter to the league organisers and sponsors as they knew they’d be going and what date for months in advance

Does it matter? we won, we are are back in the league.  Should we have said we are not playing in the play offs because we want more money? We get the massive financial benefits of promotion, would we be selling 5,000 season tickets in non league?
Some fans get too obsessed with money, every time we have a decent player the first thing they do is value how much selling him would be worth. Yes the club needs to be sound financially but if we want to be an ambitious club we need to hold on to our talented players.
We have at last got rid of Fenty who knew the price of everything and the value of nothing, hopefully the new owners will continue showing they have ambition for the club
