Part of a statement by Victor Gladwish.

"This statement will put the 'cat amongst the pidgeons' but I am not taking the rebuff lightly and will do everything I can to end the Ryman (Isthmian) League and I will champion the Pyramid system in every way possible."

To read all the statement go to

It becomes a little clearer if you go to the glsfootball.com website and click on the "press release" button where Mr Gladwish talks about the Sussex FA and Isthmian League being behind the refusal by the FA of his GLS Cup competition.

"But, we did want to own a football club so Angie and I are going to have one each from the lowest status clubs we are in contact with and bank-role them in a small way so that they can go up one or two divisions."

That's us ruled out then.....

"We aim to make the money ongoing for years. We will then explain what our company offers by way of 60 per cent interest on capital outlay (that is 15 years interest in the bank) and what was a "closed shop" will become an open shop to football fans and the scheme is better than any pension fund or childs saving account.

The average turnover of money is seven months. That means a £4,000 investment turning over twelve times in a decade becomes a million pounds.

We have operated 20 years, the investment turnover is a fact and that is why it became a closed shop as many people want a slice of the action."

The part in bold implies it is also open to personal investment?

£1,000,000 10 years from now seems appealing - where's the catch?

The catch is that you haven't understood a word he has said.

Come on own up!

Just our luck! We eventually get a sponsor who is prepared to invest serious money into the club, only to discover that he’s raving bonkers.

Look back at the middle pages of the match day programme for the Accrington Stanley game on 1st November.

Come on chaps, we knew then:
1. Most of us verge between on the one hand: having enough to pay for a holiday, buy presents at Christmas & birthdays & go out for a drink most weekends & for a meal occasionally, while at the other extreme lies having to take out a loan, without the missus knowing, just to cover the expected necessities, whilst the social life takes a bit of a nose dive. But we get by.
2. For Victor, the extremes have been infinitely more dramatic: more wealth & greater penury at the two ends of the spectrum than we could ever envisage or cope with ourselves.
3. Read the piece again chaps. Obviously, Victor insisted on contributing it himself. It reflects him entirely & so it is utterly & unashamedly eccentric.
4. He currently has stashes of cash & we should be grateful for his commitment to GNFC.
5. Neither of these are guaranteed to last, so we should never have been considering the likelihood of Victor running the club as sole proprietor (not that the Club ever was, but I seem to remember some people on this forum being incontinently hasty in wishing this scenario upon us.)

Thanks for the sponsorship, Victor. We really appreciate it.

One thing to note from that is the "demise of the GLS Cup" that was proposed previously due to the FA refusal (according to the article).

The press release is another long winded document as well !!

As for the pledge to 'end the Isthmian league', this is made clearer by today's Non-League Paper, which claims that Gladwish is on the verge of taking control of the Southern League and intends to do his best to put an end to the Isthmian League because it 'stands in the way of progress'.

Forgive this interruption from lower down the pyramid.

Elsewhere in the article in the NLP, an un-named senior spokesman from the Conference [sic] is quoted along the lines of "The Ryman are part of the Alliance with whom we are working to restructure for next season, but if the Ryman League legal action succeeds, we will proceed without them".

In those circumstances, Mr Gladwish is to invite all Ryman League clubs to join the Southern League if his company takes over the sponsorship from Dr. Martens.

I'm sure that part will be of no more than passing interest to you lot already in the dizzy heights of the Conference.

When you're 5th from bottom, you take more than a passing interest, AAF!!!

Hi J@TF.

When you're 5th from bottom of the Ryman, it all seems a long way off!

Seriously for a moment. The article in NLP was typically vague but the suggestion appeared to be that if a). The Conference re-structuring is temporarily or permanently deferred, or B). The Conference re-structuring goes ahead next season with the Ryman clubs included or c). The Conference re-structuring goes ahead without the involvement of the Ryman clubs, then in any of those circumstances, providing always that Gladwish Land sales Ltd are the sponsors of the Southern League, all Ryman League clubs below Conference Div 1 & 2 level if appropriate, will be invited to join the Southern [GLS] League.

Without prejudice. Mutatis mutandis. Subject to Pre-Contract Agreement.

Providing that Gladwish Land sales Ltd are the sponsors?

Since when did being sponsor give a company dictatorship over league events?

Another case of money talks..... I still say the bloke is bonkers.
