18 Feb 2021 : Chairman's Update - Week 4
Let there be light! After three and a half months, the floodlights have finally been fixed. Obviously, we can't use them at the moment but at least we know we will be ready to go once things start getting back to normal.
We have received an update from the league regarding the potential continuation or curtailment of the 2020/21 season.
The Alliance Committee met on the 8th February to discuss the data that had been collated from the recent surveys completed by the clubs and it was acknowledged that the Prime Minister will likely set out a 'roadmap' to the nation on 22nd February as to how current COVID-19 restrictions will be reduced.
As this update from the government on 22nd February may provide the committee with additional, relevant information to help determine the route forward, they have decided to meet again after the date. The committee are also conscious of the potential impact of any actions taken by the National League.
I understand that this must be a very frustrating time for fans, as it is for us but this is obviously a big decision for the league that cannot be rushed. We will update you when we have more information.
Manager and Board Q&A
We have finalised the details for the manager and board Q&A. It will take place on Friday 26th February at 7pm on Microsoft Teams.

FA Club Consultation Event
Pete Cartledge and I attended an online event organised by the FA to discuss the needs of the club and the type of support we would appreciate in the future. It was a very useful event and we were given the opportunity to put all our opinions across.
The club consultants will now take the club contributions to outline a programme of support along with a questionnaire that will be issued to all member clubs.
This is a very exciting opportunity and it was good to be involved from the start, we are looking forward to the programme starting.
