Re: Rest of the season?

It’s a pressure tactic. Mark Ives, NL acting CEO, who is ex FA legal/compliance is probably not going to be fazed by a lawyers letter. I doubt the FA are going to delay the ratification of the vote so Marc White may have to injunct the FA who won’t be terribly impressed ( see South Shields attempts ...

Re: Rest of the season?

I like the “respectfully” line. Dorking are considering legal action against the decision and some of the comments by their chairman could only be interpreted as very disrespectful. Threatening legal action is of course a classic bullying tactic to get your own way and will get a couple of other cha...

Re: Rest of the season?

Marc White better off saving his money rather than wasting it on lawyers on a pointless crusade. What the future holds for the NL is anyone’s guess. The omnishambles of this season could see it broken up and partly absorbed into the the EFL. That would make a lot of sense but would take some time to...

Re: Rest of the season?

Dorking think they were going to win the league this season so are looking at every avenue to keep the season alive. In my view their financial arguments don’t hold any water and as for starting legal action it’s not unlike our good friend across the pond who didn’t like the outcome of a vote. No do...

Re: Rest of the season?

He is now threatening an injunction on the vote which is a great way to make friends at the League. Now saying if the vote in null and void they will have to make redundancies. Something not quite right here. They could afford to see out the season previously but even with the benefit of furlough pa...

Re: Club statement

Tonbridge have signed 16 new players so will be interesting to see their caliber if they ever have to play.

Re: Tuesday night at Concord

That’s handy! Still no news on the vote outcome which is concerning. Maybe the league is waiting for the 22 February Boris roadmap before making a decision. Personally I wouldn’t follow any Boris roadmap. Could you imagine where you might end up!

Re: Club statement

One question not asked in the podcast is what happens it the league votes to continue. Are we considering going down the Tonbridge and Maidstone route of furloughing then squad and playing a scratch side?

Re: Club statement

If you listen to the club podcast the chairman says that they looked at asking players to take a big cut in wages but still could not make that work financially. Now I have no idea about how big a cut was requested but you have to remember players will probably be better off on furlough or possibly ...

Re: Rest of the season?

Tonbridge have now furloughed their entire first team squad and will field a scratch side if required to play on. Are we doing anything similar? Due to be away at Concord Tuesday evening.

Re: Rest of the season?

Some critical comments from Marc White, chairman of Dorking, today about our decision to vote null and void. His helpful suggestion is that we should have voted to continue and fielded our Academy side to save money. Now we may have to do that if the votes to finish are not carried and we are forced...

Re: Club statement

Just a reminder, the season hasn’t finished yet. The various votes still to be declared and NL decision to be made. Games still being played in the NLS.
