Based on that update from Nicola Sturgeon it seems any form of football is a long long way away. Would it be possible for someone at the club to update on our situation financially going forward? What financial shortfalls there are and how we can be contributing more? What, if anything, is the majority shareholder providing? I think I speak for everyone on here that it I want to have a football club to support at the end of this and hopefully as much transparency can be shown with fans in order to keep some sort of income coming into the club.

Ways to contribute on here.

I think everyone should get on the goldmine lotto.

I know the prizes aren't as large as the national lotto. But the goldmine makes the club money and just think of it as your 50/50 draw ticket each week with a bigger prize of that.

So far fans have donated £7165 through the gofundme site but seems to be coming to a standstill. Raith are over £40,000(much bigger fan base), Dumbarton almost at £16,000, Albion Rovers reached  £10,000 and Elgin catching us up. A bit disappointing considering we have been helped by Raith, Hearts and Partick fans??????  Possibly other ways of donating that I don't know about??? Would be nice if somebody locally like Diagio who are still producing, contributed but don't think they are well known for it.

Maybe fans think as the season has been declared & prize money paid, or the government's furlough scheme means that the club are fine for the time being. Maybe people have other priorities, especially with this looking longer than a 2-3months thing. Or maybe we are all just needing geed up again? 

Ordered the wee man the new strip last week, not sure if the club makes off it though.

How is the club's finances at the moment? Was thinking of sponsoring a players kit, for next season. Does anyone know the costs? Or does the club need the money in now?

It costs £100 to sponsor a players kit.

Give Leona an email on [email protected] with who you want to sponsor and she will sort you out.

Incidetly, does this money go to the club, or does it go to the relevant player? Just trying to work out what would help the club out better, this or a donation?

A good squad retained there. Hopefully see Long, Dunsmore, Davidson & Dowds added to that list over the summer.

I would be surprised if all 4 haven't been offered deals but also wouldn't be surprised if all fancied a chance at full time clubs

If the Govt stops the job retention scheme in June,having players under contract will b put the club at greater financial risk.Being punished for forward planning but clubs where all the players are out of contract will be better placed to survive.No one is going to be signing players just now.Presume clubs will use the supposed get out clause in contracts to enable them to survive.

Clubs may survive but if you are a decent player and the club does that you sure as hell aren't going to sign for them again when they want you back...

If there is no football this year,which is more than possible,how do you expect them to pay players with no income.Just about every club will do this.If and when we get through this players will still have to accept wage cuts.

Been thinking that myself, its a gamble that may pay off, as the other clubs in the division may have a mad scramble to sign whoevers left at shirt notice when the green light comes on.

All depends on when though.
