I see that nice Mr. Evans has just been appointed Gillingham's new manager - good to know we'll be locking horns with him again next season, his teams are always a delight to play against

an interesting read in the independent regarding clubs that are unable to pay wages the gap between the different leagues and they say league 1 clubs need gates of over 10,000 to sustain survival https://www.independent.co.uk/sport/...TUnwSbdLFKdZzA

Re: Bits & Bobs

lots of lower leagur and non league clubs love to call themselves community clubs. for me it just seems a plea to local people to turn up for the match. they do very little infact for the community on the whole apart from school visits. i,m not talking about Stanley but clubs in general. even those like hartlepool with a town centre location do very little off the field activity for the local community. its like passing the marie celeste there on non match days. the problem is the money generated from say pensioners meetings, mother and baby groups and anything you can think of will only generate a few hundred pounds when its thousands that are required. its all about the money in the end. unless wages are kept more in check for me things will only get worse with even more players having to leave the game as clubs go back to the early 70,s with even smaller squads than they have now.

Talking of community clubs, most of us will have seen this before but, this time, it's from the United Arab Emirates:

Stanley are 2 chunks of work away from having completed what can be feasibly done with the ground, 1 is the away end and 2 is the new bar and office complex. When the Supporters Club asked for ideas of what the new bar could incorporate I suggested that the major thing has to be its out of hours usage. This needs to be decided BEFORE the work starts rather than building a box and seeing how they can use it.

The things that Monkey Hangar talks about ARE community use and I'd like to see consideration given to those things. They mightn't make money but the users become soft supporters. The more people we have who consider the club favourably, the less moaners there are in the community. 5000 shirts will have been given out to kids over the next 3 years (and last 2), thats 5-10,000 parents who have benefitted, up to 20,000 grandparents who may consider us in a better light - these things need to be continually built on.

Its not about making money, but we need to consider how not to LOSE money by doing them. Opening and heating a large bar is false economy for a non profit meeting, but could we possibly incorporate an open space shop/cafe/museum type place? Are we able to have staff in the building for longer hours so that nobody is coming in especially for them?

The bar could and should be open 7 days a week with a bit of forward planning.

Well done, Tranmere.
Should make a few quid from pie sales if Rhino’s with them still.
