Yes, good old Truro, play at Plymouth I think now? 

Last Season they ground shared at Torquay for several games & then returned back to Truro, Are they leaving their ground again for Plymouth this time to enable the development of their ground to commence?  Last I heard was the Cornish Stadium which will include rugby was still on hold but perhaps it has been given the Gov't funding it was awaiting.

8 red cards were given in yesterday's match between Yeovil and Bromley with all 8 going to the ball boys after one of them delayed giving the ball back to a Bromley player with 6-minutes of normal time left.

Yeovil won the match 3-1

Chelmsford City continue to under-perform losing 6-2 at home to Oxford City. A lot of discontent among supporters on team selection, formation, lack of pace & lack of imagination. Mid field was notable by its absence with it being bypassed most of the game by hoof ball by our defenders. Unsavory scenes at the end with Manager's son having to be restrained by 3 stewards wanting to have a go at our own supporters venting their spleen. 

Only upside of the day was meeting our @markNeal  with his fellow Oxford City supporters at the end of the game.

Yes SS I was waiting for that to happen. As Safety Officer for Chelmsford City in the National South we have reasonable gates for a team in that division, especially when local rivals play us I could not see the wisdom in continuing in view of the Government guidance re mass gatherings. I was in a difficult situation personally as being over 70 I should be self isolating, although I am fit and well and would have been prepared to attend games if it was only myself to consider. My wife has a heart condition and in view of that I would have felt compelled to stay at home on match days as if I was responsible for anything happening to her because of me would have been too much for me to bear.

Our club was a few months ago taken over by Betsi, part owners of Chelmsford City racecourse, so as far as finances are concerned the Clarets are suffering a double hit as racing has been stopped and funding will be restricted.

I trust everyone reading this thread stays well.

Kind Regards

Dave

Hi Dave

Firstly and foremost stay safe.

I have no idea what is going to happen now, the season is not going to finish, clubs have been shut down which includes social revenue streams from the bars etc as well as match days. I believe my clubs financial obligations will be £10k-£20k per week  with nothing coming in, and very little in the bank, like most clubs mine runs pretty much hand to mouth.

Hello Clive.

I trust you and your family are well. It is good to hear from you.
It is assumed that one of your most valuable funding streams, your pitch will no longer be hired out at this time.

If the season is extended to June we will be in a very difficult situation as Melbourne Park is primarily an Athletics Stadium during the summer and fully booked with school sports as well as local and regional competition and so finding slots to play will be very difficult.

Kind Regards

Dave

Hi Dave

Well I have not got it yet although I want that testing kit because I had something close at Christmas and would love to know, and it would mean I could help others more comfortably?

Yes you are right our pitch is basically out of use, I hear now  we are more likely to finish the season at some point rather than it being a write off. As for Chelmo, these are unprecedented times, so the football and athletics will have to share won't they 🙂

The Northern League appear to have called it a day for the season.

No word yet on what's happening with regard to the table.

The rumours are the National league are going to call it a day too. The question is will they or can void the season due to the knock on effect to the EFL?
