  1. If your a current ETFC member you should have received a report of the meeting by now. if your not it a member a report is on our website.
  2. My understanding and I stand to be corrected is if we receive a 7 day approach after 7 days that club can speak to our player and make an offer. At the moment we know we can’t pay players without crowds attending games. Welling , like other National League sides are receiving state funding so they can play without crowds. So after 7 days Welling or another national league club could have made an offer. I don’t blame players accepting such offers they have bills to play like the rest of us. I think our club deserves some credit for protecting our players livelihood and not delaying that proces
  3. Don’t think there is anything we can do about the players going on dual registration and I think most people understand that. We are simply not in a position to offer football to them until lockdown is lifted. And I think we already have a dozen supporters on the board so I’m more than content for them or others who come forward to guide us through the most difficult of times.
  4. Everyone is entitled to their opinion but most of your posts seem to be critical of the way the club is run. And you are more than entitled to have that view. So why not stand for election to the board. If others share your view you may get elected and you can pursue the changes you think need to be made.
  5. Let’s see where we are after 10 games 😉
  6. Any queries regarding purchase of online tickets should be sent to Webteam@etfc.london
  7. Well quite enjoyed the game , plenty of effort and commitment and a great debut from Adam Pepera. Looking forward to Tuesday.
  8. We have played 4 games , see where we are after 10 games assuming the season lasts that long.
  9. Despite the DCMS announcement clubs will still have to introduce measures to ensure a relatively safe Covid19 secure environment. This could mean access to some parts of the ground are limited to ensure social distancing , introduction of one way systems , cashless pay , and restricted attendances. And unlike Government announcements these things don’t happen overnight.
  10. When you see the situation developing in Rugby League you have to question if it’s appropriate to restart football at our level Complying with the guidance is going to be very challenging with the burden falling on unpaid volunteers. Maybe it would be better to skip a season and restart in August 2021. Discuss. https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.bbc.com/sport/amp/rugby-league/53746240
  11. Despite these announcements I can’t see how football can take place at non league level while there is a need to social distance , where players have work commitments away from football and when it’s necessary to self isolate for 14 days if you come into contact with someone who tests positive. If a player plays on Saturday tests positive on Monday everyone who played in that game or was involved needs to self isolate for two weeks. Therefore can’t play again for two weeks but more significantly may not be able to work for two weeks.
  12. I like the look of the new official club website. More user friendly , easier to navigate with relevant and informative content.
  13. I’m beginning to think that if social distancing needs to remain in place until an effective vaccine is available it maybe 2021 before football returns at our level.
  14. If it proves necessary to keep some form of social distancing until an effective vaccine is available I’m beginning to think football at non league level may not return until 2021.
  15. Don’t think any perfect solution was available and frankly there are more important issues to concern us. Just surprised the National League is continuing - or saying it is. I’d be surprised if there is any football before the Autumn.
