Sent an E mail to Mr Docherty, did get some sort of reply as i did ask him some furthur questions. Still wont vote for him anyway.......you do not realize what a "proper Chairwoman" you have keeps talking to you and asks your opinions. Think Woking Steve is a bit jealous of you.
Keep going. Shame about the score today though you will bounce back. In this area with the vision you have you will be the next Football league club in the area. Unless Rushmoor sorts itself out and has one team only that is in a council ground. Aldershot think they are the big fish always have. Woking are very soon going to be the big fish. Good luck to you .

We have six points in the bank too. Much prefer that 😁. Money will come if it's been allocated.
Rather have a club to support than 6 points, still no news and it’s gone five o’clock a full week after a promise from this government.

It was said we could only survive three or four weeks without financial support so a week has gone.

I say again “we shouldn’t have started playing until this deal was signed sealed and delivered”

Unless anybody believes we can fully trust this government when it makes promises.........
As far as I am aware, subsistence payments were to be made monthly (as opposed to weekly) to all clubs.
There is some vagueness as to whether the payment is to be from the League, or directly from the department of culture.

Note
- (i) I am not particularly aware
- (ii) I thought it was most likely to be an equal amount for all NL clubs, and an equal amount (but smaller) for all NLS and NLN clubs. Simply due to the vastly increased administrative burden of doing otherwise.

Hello Del boy or should i say postie from Knaphill who supports Aldershot. Straight up Aldershot are finished. You have a manager who does not have a clue, a Chairmen who tells you nothing and cant add who is in it for two things.......money and the feeling of power.
For too long Aldershot think they were something their not, both fans and club turn their back on outsiders and think they are the " big cheese" i got one thing wrong in my last post Woking are already a bigger club, fan wise soon they will be. Mr Azeem has helped finish Aldershot off.
Woking has a chairwomen who cares and a football manager who knows how to manage........why because they are not bull shitters.
Factual rant over.

There’s 36 league points to contest before then.
I would rather not be 45 points behind Hartlepool, and 12 points adrift of 22nd place before the Boxing Day fixtures are played.

Another week passes, still not news or announcement about this promise of support from this trustworthy government, by them, or the league.

Or did I miss it?

Was thinking the same the other day but Ollie Bayliss on Twitter said we should get funding by the end of next week

I do not think any subsistence payment is yet due.

As far as I was able to understand, a payment to the league was due prior to the end of October, in order for the league to then distribute payments to member clubs at the end of October.

I saw an announcement on SkyNews ( sunday 18th) that the National Lottery is providing £10m support for national league.

Whilst any funding is welcome - how far will that go?

I assume further details will be released today?

I assume this is in addition to the Government bailout?

It looks like this is it, for now at least, and is to cover the period to the end of December.

If split equally it’s a touch over 151k per club, although I would presume National League Clubs would get more than North and South.
Won’t help huge budget clubs much tbh.

Adrian. , leave off the political stuff mate, constant abuse to a govt in a very difficult situation doesn't help the overall cause, they can't cover everything all of the time

Could he have done any worse?

Don’t get me wrong, it was a little like choosing between prison or a Stevenage season ticket, but I’m not sure that Corbyn would have been as bad as Johnson.

A promise is a promise.

Nothing wrong in asking a question and this question is rather important.

I’m certainly not abusing the current government, just testing their trustworthiness.

I do agree they are in a no win situation, put a promise is a promise.

But he didn't, so the point is irrelevant.

Fortunately in a 'free' country, criticism and holding the government to account, is allowed.

I’ve tried that ‘promise is a promise’ line many times. Never done me any good ....

Looking good for the money

It's clearly impossible to divide the money in a way that is fair and acceptable to all clubs. Nevertheless, the likes of Boreham Wood will be better off under this split than if crowds were being allowed in.

were torquay averaging much higher than us? Does Stockport (leaving aside for the moment that they are spaffing money) have a higher cost model than us?

Boreham wood must be delighted. Doubt they received that much in gate receipts, bar takings etc for their lost home game attendances.

on the face of it seems a decent deal for national league teams, including us, but not exactly grounded in actual lost revenue

Some clubs will still overspend on receiving this money. Lets be honest though, we wont be getting it forever, Maybe a few months at most
