Went a game on Saturday. Decent club and won’t name them. However if they allow such disregard at social distancing around their bar and clubhouse, crowds will disappear at non league grounds 

Nah name and shame, it's instances like this that have the potential to ruin it for huge numbers of fans

Gary Mills appointed at Corby Town. That's THE Gary Mills not the ex Rushden player who coincidentally managed Corby a few years ago.

Was also the Leicester manager in the mid 1980s according to the guy who interviewed Russell Osman on Leicester fan tv LOL

Just signed 23 year old Elisha Sam.

 

Belgian, 6'5" center forward who played in Bulgaria's top tier last season.

 

Looks like a nice lad. Hope he can play!

 

Edit: Just watched some of his goals. Very agile for a big fella. Has some nice skills and he ain't slow :thumbup:

Step 5 Midland Football League been going for a week - most teams played a FA Cup fixture and a league fixture and already had about 6 cancellations for COVID on these midweek fixtures. 

 

Not looking great

Got a ticket for Coalville’s first home league game in a couple of weeks time.

 

I went for the friendly a couple of weeks it was hammering it down and pretty much everyone was under cover in the stands (not that I could blame them!).

Just purchased tickets for Coalville v Sheffield FC in the FA Cup 1st round qualifying 

 

They beat Boston Town 3-0 in the last round. 

 

Looking forward to seeing Billy Kee leading the line

Macclesfield have gone bust.

I see all and sundry have taken this as a sign of the first club broken by Covid. Macclesfield have sadly been ran shambolically for the last five years, was inevitable.

Another team that'll start in the north west lower leagues and rise back up to the conference in no time, hopefully under better leadership.

Coalville have received a £10k grant from the Premier League to help develop the stadium and make it easier to stick to the covid guidelines. Apparently £8.7 million has been sent to lower league clubs in grants by the FA/Premier League. Fair play.

 

Sounds like our tiny shed end is gonna be made longer so people don't have to huddle so close when it's lashing it down

It's difficulat to have sympathy with macclesfield when they jepodized the future of the club for unrelaistic drive for promotion through the leagues.

 

Hopefully the owners whether that's the fans or not will prioritize links with the community and a sustaniable club rather than winning leagues.

The news today about Pilot events leaves the National League in a very difficult position. 
 

The clubs which were insistent at Step 2 / the regional divisions about getting the league classified as ‘elite sport’ to ensure that they could play out the playoffs will be feeling it now.

Let's be honest, all fans attending any sporting event no matter what level is going to come to a halt again in a week or two max isn't it.
