    According to one of those twitter accounts that are usually 90% bullshit, we’ve offered Ian Henderson a contract.

    For sure a gamble, but if the alternative is going the way of Bury... not saying that’s how bad it is btw, just using that as an extreme example of possibly why these measures need to be taken.

    If it is true I don’t think there’s that many holes in it really if it all gets approved. It won’t be much different to the national league when it was 90% full time pro teams with the odd part time team in there, especially if more teams do the same if stadiums remain closed. Plus it’s only...

    There are some in the northern league. They stand out a mile from what people say who watch it. They are north east based so it would be a case of convincing them to come over here for part time training and Saturday games up and down the country. Certain relegation? I’m an optimist so I won’t...

    You are asking me questions that you know I don’t have the answers to. I don’t know what Carlisle can or can’t afford, I don’t all the details of this part time for a season plan. All I can say is bits of rumours that have been creeping around over the last few days. I don’t know exactly how...

    Tell Conker that then. He’s wanting to know what all the well paid jobs in the North East are.

    I dont think they’ll be choosing average jobs over full time football. We’re probably talking qualified blokes with really decent jobs, not bin men.

    There are some really good players playing in that league to be fair. They just don’t want to be in the professional game.

    For 1 season only yes, I’d presume so. Id also presume that you d have to prove how up shit creek financially you are due to the effects of the COVID lockdown?

    Heard a bit more on the part time rumour today. We’re apparently awaiting EFL and PFA approval before we can officially confirm it. The plan is to target players from the Northern League who would have been good enough to play professionally but choose to play part time as the money they can...

    Looks like Bolton have won the race for Eoin Doyle.

    Yeah we do still run a full academy set up. Some decent players have come out of it in recent years, we sold one to Everton in January for 750k + add ons, he’s already in their first team squad. Quite a few more have signed first team contracts for next season. It’ll be vital for us if we do...

    The story I heard is that we’re getting special dispensation from EFL to do it for one season due to the loss of income from match day revenue, rather than getting into financial turmoil and going into admin

    No, it’s just a rumour that’s done the rounds. I’ve heard a couple of different versions of it so could be bullshit, but apparently once it’s been confirmed with the EFL we’ll make an announcement possibly this week. It’s just for one season to balance the losses from COVID

    Bolton now the club in poll position for Jamie Devitt. We are apparently still trying but can’t see us being able to compete, particularly with it looking like we’re going part time next season.

    The club probably know there’s a fair chance that they’ll lose the whole squad maybe barring the first year youth graduates. The players who’ve agreed to go part time are probably just keeping their options open by not burning bridges with the club. It’s a risk the club obviously (if this turns...

    I guess we’ll see. I doubt they’ll be inundated with clubs begging for their services.

    Only what I’ve heard. I think we have about 8 players under contract or something like that. They’ve agreed to it for a season, doesn’t mean they are happy about it. I guess players who value spending more time with families etc or don’t mind pursuing other professions during their spare time

    From what I heard today there’s possibly special dispensation to do it for one season given the circumstances and the fact clubs may be operating with no or reduced crowd revenue. I guess they’d rather this than clubs go down the Wigan Athletic route.
