Good that the fans have done this. Have the club done anything though? Doubt it

TBF Gibson does seem like a decent chap. Sort of owner we could do with. He came onto their Board in 86, when they went bust...so will know the history.

Notts County charging 2 per ticket for their match v Crewe in Feb to commemorate their chairmans 1st year anniversary.
I'm surprised Power didn't come up with that one.

Toss of a coin whether this should go in the "What's wrong/right" thread, but the reporter went with the positive angle (largely) so thought I'd stick with that:

The sad reality for clubs like HPools, is that in Brexit Britain, they may need to drop down to Conference North or Northern Premier League in order to be sustainable. At least in Conference North they'd be able to renew acquaintances with Darlo, who seem to have found their level.

Don't think Brexit comes into it, massive red herring. Lower league clubs have been struggling for many years, long before Brexit. Or the first referendum on entering the Common Market come to that (Accrington, I'm looking at you)
