04 Mar 2021 : Chairman's Update - Week 6

Essential Grounds Maintenance

Work has begun to make the compound behind the stand, safe and secure. This is being funded through the winter survival fund as it is essential that we make that area safe before we welcome people back to the Millbank.

Paul Tandy and his team of amazing volunteers have put in a lot of hours and the place is already looking a lot better. We'll have some before and after pictures to share with you once the work is completed.

Hybrid Pitch

Now that our season has been confirmed as over (pending FA council ratification) our attention can turn to end of season pitch renovations.

There's quite an extensive amount of work that needs doing to the pitch in preparation for next season and we're hoping to get the work started as soon as possible so we can start using it again and take advantage of the end of the COVID-19 restrictions.

Manager and Board Q&A

Friday's manager and board Q&A session went really well, and I would like to thank all those fans who took part and thank Calum for giving up his Friday night.

I hope everyone enjoyed it, I know I did, and we will look to put on another event in the near future. It would be good to host one of these events in the clubhouse once COVID-19 restrictions allow.

League Restructure

I mentioned in last week's update that with the season being curtailed, the Alliance leagues will revisit the restructure of the leagues at Steps 4-6 and I wanted to give you all a bit more information as to what impact that will have on us.

In the original restructure, which has now been postponed twice due to the last two seasons not being completed, the NPL was due to have an additional division at Step 4 (our level). This additional division would allow the NPL to restructure the divisions at this level to be geographically fairer.

When we were promoted to the NPL the divisions were split as East and West, which resulted in the clubs in the East division travelling longer distances than those in the West division. This was changed after our debut season which resulted in less Midlands trips and more North East trips.

This latest restructure will hopefully result in much less travelling across the board, with more localised divisions.

I do feel that the implementation of the restructure would benefit us as a club, and I will update you all when we get further information from the league.

As always, thank you for reading, stay safe and I'll see you all soon.

Dave Jones
