Surprised there are only 81 contributers to be honest.

Not really surprised. 

For every fan that is riding this situation relatively comfortably financially, there  will be one who is finding thing difficult, so it's never going to be anything like every supporter who will be able to or indeed want to donate. 

There will possibly be others who are buying extra lottery tickets rather than making straight donations, and also some who will make further donations as time goes on.

I'm also assuming the numbers quoted are solely for those utilising the Official Site Donation facility?

I'd say it's an encouraging start.

I don't think he meant it that way. Rather that it was surprising that there's only been 81 contributers considering the amount donated so far, meaning there's been some big, generous contributions.

A cross between the two to be honest.

I thought 81 was a low number but I didn't take into account the other ways to contribute that living Liviclyde mentioned which are just as valid.

I do agree with you that the mean value of the donations made to the official contribution page is impressive

The appeal icon if you can call it that could probably be a bit more prominent on home page to be honest. But great effort by everyone who has contributed 👏

I have totally not stolen Div’s idea and have made a Clyde quiz which will run tomorrow night, live on myQuiz.

You will need to create an account on myQuiz to take part. It will start at 7.30pm BST tomorrow night, Sunday 5th April. As I said, it is live so if you’re late then you will miss it. I can run it at a later time/date if people miss it and really want to take part.

The code you need to enter on the myQuiz homepage in order to enter the quiz is 101415. I would recommend logging in five minutes in advance to it starting just so there no issues. 

I have spent longer than I care to disclose making this and to my best knowledge, every answer is correct. For the more technical questions, I have added information that will appear after the question has been answered.

There is no prize but I am willing to buy the winner a drink at the next Clyde game. If there are more than two winners then forget it. Off work etc etc.

Any questions then fire away.

Hey guys,

Just to let you know Clyde are now live and accepting donations on http://www.donateaticket.com

You can donate the value of a match ticket direct to Clyde on the site. There are leaderboards for each division creating competition between clubs in who can raise the most. 

Clyde shared it on Twitter over the weekend. I set up the site as a non-profit, it's free for clubs and no commission is taken from any donations. Also, the transaction fees are actually smaller than Just Giving and Go Fund Me.

Good luck!

I've donated directly to the club rather than using this initiative. The initiative is something a bit different & any funds raised through this platform also benefit the clubs involved. Quick question though... do the clubs just receive the money or does 'DonateATicket' effectively buy the number of tickets listed for the club to offer out to locals for free once the football season returns?

I don't think we need to be rude, he's trying to help all the clubs and wouldn't necessarily be aware which ones have and haven't already set up their own donation pages. Good luck to him anyway and hope we get as much money as possible however people donate.

Says on the website there’s no transaction fees and the club gets 100% of donation. 
 

I think it doesn’t even land at him it just gets sent straight to the club account.

New update looks very bleak. 

Certainly is. This is only my opinion too but I don’t think for one second it was necessary to say that the players recused an 80% furlough. I don’t think I would be terribly happy if I was a player.

Worrying times for the club.

Players refusing a 20% cut is understandable as we don't know their personal circumstances.

I also think it's reasonable for the club to tell the fans about it. Otherwise, as usual with Clyde fans, it would be replaced with speculation and rumour.

Yes, not great but I assume (player payment issue apart) every single club at our level will be in almost same position. Perhaps being too honest in public, maybe? However may also be justifying the decision to vote yes to the proposal, as they feel it may be unpopular (not that I think is wrong), I think it’s the only decision the league can take given the situation. It needs resolution and I suppose we need the £77,500 cash..now!

Bit of bravery to publicly state their voting intentions, credit for that at least whether you agree or not.
