Cant understand this, we had 4 home games left, take out season tickets and that's say 500 fans a game 10K a game equals 40K, all covered by the fans now, as I say it doesn't make sense???

I guess the prize money is built into the budget, hence with the league season not ending in May when it's supposed to, it leaves a cash flow issue somewhere down the line...

Where is money going at the moment and are there some liabilities that need to be released based on income from prize money? I can only assume yes, because otherwise this does not make sense. 

What would be useful would be a statement of what we are still paying when 80% of wages are removed.

Think that's for self employed. I'm pretty sure end of April is earliest employers will see this cash to pay staff.

My work were advised that the claim for April would come through some time in May and that any claim for March (I like everyone else was paid in full for March before being put on the scheme) would come in at the same time

Its a massive job for HMRC to set this up.

 The following is part of a club statement from the Peterhead board today.

The reimbursement package from HMRC for the scheme is not yet live and may take some months to finalise so we must meet wage commitments until we are compensated placing a large financial burden on the club.

I'm led to believe our playing budget is £41k per month.

 

Very good interview again with Bill Clark.

He's under the impression football won't be played until October at the earliest, which sounds bleak.

 

ETA I have zero proof on that figure. It's friend of a friend stuff but can't be a mile away.

The interview with Bill Clark on the website is really at odds with the Courier article shown above. Seems to think we’ll be fine this month and next, the summer might get tricky but perhaps only if we have no clarity on which league we’ll be in as a) this means prize money still won’t have come in and b) season tickets can’t go on sale.

He sounds very grateful for the fundraising that’s happened and it really is an amazing effort. Must be £55-£60k all in.

New strips in the pipeline too which will hopefully be a great way to get some cash in.

Yeah, can’t help but feel the courier article is a misrepresentation of what he’s said. We’ll be alright.

The interview on the website is in line with the interview he gave on Saturday on Open All Mikes

It seems that all contracts due to expire in May or June will now be extended to cover any extension to the current season.

I don't know how this can be organised, lawyers could have a field day with this.

We would probably be fine player wise, but what about teams at risk of relegation/going out of business?

Don’t think it is as easy as that, players will have to agree, some may have signed pre contracts with other teams, they can’t be forced into staying beyond their current contracts, a whole minefield to suggest just to extend everyone’s contracts.   Wouldn’t be fair if teams brought in new players for these games either as the window for the season had closed another can or worms.

 

Just give us the title and move on😂

Why would you want to continue to play 8 meaningless games? When you can start a new season and have something to play for

Spot on, your spot on. Best team and most consistent are currently sitting top of the league. Finish the league now promote top and 2nd top no relegation vast majority of teams happy and prize money paid out to help clubs get through this hard period of time. It's either that or promote top, relegate bottom which means several more unhappy teams and fans. The void the season option is a no go. No club could survive getting no prize money paying back sponsors and who knows having to pay back all season tickets etc. If you say it hasn't happened then all money's will have to be paid back.
