Up to 10000 crowds will be allowed back for last day of EPL in May and Wembley play off finals x 3 for EFL (end of May) and for NL in June... so not totally ‘elite++’ .....

Kings Lynn have furloughed 6 players including their leading goal scorers and after the Woking game this Saturday, they will be furloughing another 6. Weymouth have announced they are furloughing 7 players this week. Stones next 2 games after Halifax? Kings Lynn and Weymouth..

King's Lynn Town - Home - Just because they are furloughing players, it does not follow that this game will be 'easy'.

Hmm this is confusing!

That Notts County game on the 13th March has snuck in under my radar. I missed that announcement of re-arrangement. Good job we have Deadly to keep us on our toes!

I can see the logic with Dover "unavailability" and Macclesfield going bust. And we can't play on the 27th March cos Notts County are in the FA Trophy semi final. It is announced on our website and fixtures list but not on Football Web Pages, Live Scores or Nott's County's site. I guess they will get updated shortly.

So it could be a real 6 pointer day - 3 available against Notts County and probably 3 against the Cheese eating surrender monkeys.

Borehamwood have their loan application turned down - https://twitter.com/Ollie_Bayliss/statu ... 0271738881

We thought the exceptional grants might be hard to get, but a loan?

Not much sympathy on the thread however.

They've assessed their finances and determined they have enough income and reserves to manage their way through to March 2022, without the need for a loan. And their owner doesn't seem to dispute that, he just cites the actions he's had to take to be able to do it. The £252,000 they had from the lottery grant was enough to cover the gate revenue for 18 out of 23 of their home games based on last seasons average attendance. It will be interesting how many other clubs are turned down on the same basis.

I thought Borehamwood also received stable incomes from a number of other sources? Arsenal? Their Academy scheme?

The implication for me is that the Exceptional Grant will be nigh-on impossible to get. It'll be a loan if anything..

From Twitter:

Potentially very significant news:

“The current understanding at DCMS is that spectators for non-elite football will be under the same category for all spectators in the roadmap (not allowed before May 17th)”.
