thks in advance
Win, yes, I heard Sutton had paid £0.6m x year's ago

I think the percentage that is artificial reduces every time a flare is thrown into the pitch!

Saveloy - Winchester City are having a 3G pitch put in and the total project is well over £1m, with over 80% paid for with a Football Foundation grant.

As NPL surface is 30% artificial, I wonder how much artificial surfacing is acceptable in EFL. Newport could do with a sturdier pitch!
Anyway I guess few of us will shed tears if Barnet or some other team beat them.

DO - lots of availability at our artificial 5-a-side pitch [Link] I would go with a bowling alley up there.

saveloy include in that the fees youth section pay per year towards training on them. That's a decent bit as well.

According to [Link] a 3g resurfacing costs £150,000 – £250,000 - so assuming you can find 2/3 other teams to play and train at the facilities I would have thought fewer than ten years but not a lot fewer.

Based on this, it certainly would look like they were accepting a long-term non-league residency if they scrapped it immediately.
RK yeah it's not a simple one but then my understanding was Sutton have some people with money to help on that. Theirs was in use a lot because they don't have back pitches as well for it. Bromley has a good set of back pitches as well as their main pitch so they didn't need to use it as much. But from memory they played matches there a lot (including youth section).

Maybe we could lay an artificial pitch in the third tier of the main stand?

In financial terms, it's all about how long an artificial pitch will take to payback. There's the initial investment followed by a new income stream. I don't know what this payback would be, but my hunch would be ten or so years?

I don't think Sutton have made a decision (obviously they're not going down!) but fans on their forum seem to take the view that it would be a backwards step and accept residency in non-league

I think Sutton made a lot of money from theirs, I wonder if they'd go back to an artificial pitch as I doubt they'd get back in the league for quite a while. Who would want to fund, play for or support a club that ruled out getting promotion?

unless things have changed they use that pitch a lot to rent out (e.g. Millwall academy used to play matches there sometimes) so might cost them a bit of money.

I imagine they would do so Lurker. Winning promotion and refusing it would be the end of them as a serious club, back down to Isthmian League level at best.

OI means they'll have to dig up their pitch.

We may have to go back to Hayes Lane next season. What a horrible thought.

That wasn't a kick off though. The ref had just stopped play and asked him to return the ball to the oppo keeper.

Not still bitter about it, honest...
Considering how long games now last I'm not sure why 89th minute is such a big deal to people. There's usually another 7-10 minutes. Making changes then could catch out teams looking to hang on with what they've got at that point. (players clearly haven't come to terms with the idea of actual extra time, judging by the way they still try to time waste).

Meadow - I am guessing that is the same Ryan Hall.

Ps, did you notice the lack of diversity in that Croydon team. Just a couple of token whites to make up the numbers. No one ever mentions it when teams line up like that. 😆 😉
Silk. I guess you are referring to Curtis's cross that Tilley headed over? If it's that there is nothing going on to warrant a penalty in my opinion. Even more innocuous from the reverse angle which suggests Omar is pushing his man off (legally). Omar stood on Hudlin's shoulders wouldn't have reached it for a header. There is significantly more holding going on at corners generally, so not even a penalty consideration for me.

Just catching up. Very sad to hear of Paul Denny's passing. He was part of the team I grew up watching as a teenager. RIP Paul.

Ryan Hall [Link] Wasn't he the goal scorer for Bromley near the end of the Conference South season? Things got nasty in the away end at Hayes Lane that day. The female copper nearby looked quite scared.
