  1. Thought about it a bit more,the '3 Amigo's Stadium' there all friends after all.
  2. Have they reached agreement yet about the name of the new ground ? Suggest the 'Meadowbank Community Stadium' that has all sides on board
  3. Has a club that groundshares bar Mole Valley ever got promoted?
  4. Groundsharing at Step 6 is a nightmare waiting to happen,many have tried over the short time that I have been following CCL1. Bookham,Warlingham,Croydon Municipal,Staines Lammas,Farleigh Rovers all tried but failed.Mole Valley are the only Club i know who have made it work,but at what cost? The only winners are the Clubs that get the revenue from the groundshare,plus the bar receipts of course.
  5. The F.A.really make me laugh,rather lowering the standard of unecessary ground improvements to reach step 6,they bring this in. The only beneficiaries will be the Clubs who groundshare,So if you finish 8th you can get promoted just to keep their coffers up.
  6. Why should Dorking Wanderers take on a 25yr lease,the youth sides using the facility will not be asked to take on a lease,just pay the fees set by whoever.Why should Dorking Wanderers not be allowed to do the same?
  7. So you played Professional Pool then or did you stay Amateur?
  8. Why are Dorking FC so anti Dorking Wanderers as regards a Groundshare.Yet so biased to Youth Football,could it be the Brockham Badgers connection within their Committee.The Dorking twitter feed gives great coverage to Brockham Badgers,but little about Dorking FC's plans for season 15/16,when is the closing date for the £500,000 grant?
  9. Teams mainly seem to want to avoid promotion,due to the lucrative money they can make from a Vase run.Maybe a better way would be to bar them from entering the Vase if they turn down promotion to Step 4.
  10. Apologies Rich,I MUST REMEMBER to follow the GOSPEL OF RICH,or else my posts are stupid.Dont think they ever visited Epsom though,Banstead maybe.
  11. Rich life is full of ifs and maybes,Phil Page will be a good addition for Dorking Wanderers in their quest for further promotion.Who are we to question his motives.He will probably be paid fairly for what he adds to the Team, I wish him all the best.
  12. Rich,so if Epsom and Ewell were offered promotion to Step 4 in the Southern South West League next year,they would jump at the chance,no matter what,your not far from Redhill? It could happen?
  13. Of laughter no doubt.There are some shrewd cookies out there for sure.
  14. Karen we do not have a Moderator,we are a nice bunch on here,although a bit boring.
  15. A good article it was too,how time flies.
  16. Cheers Jeff for the reply,so Dorking FC will have to rely on gate money to fund themselves?
  17. Was anything discussed at the MVDC Meeting regarding what granting a 25 year lease would cost Dorking FC. What would they get as regards facilities,would they run the Bar,or would this be done by outside Contractors.Nice to see 1000's of Children/Youths using the facility,would they get a discount on the hourly rate,because many presently use Free facilities ie Parks to train on saturday mornings,which are free at source.What input will Surrey FA have as regards the running of the facility,Security,Hiring,Cleaning,Maintenance?.Will Dorking F.C.aim to run more than the 2 sides that they run under their banner,as currently they do not run any U6-U17 sides.
  18. Never thought I would ever say this,but the CCL Official Website has some very interesting articles,in its news section,well worth a read.Why not pay it a visit,rather than reading the Boring posts on here.
  19. Lazurus would be most put out if you did,just think no League News,Fixtures etc.
  20. Dave how do you know that Dorking Wanderers Reserves will not be involved at the top half of the table? Any views on South Park Reserves.Reserve teams from Ryman League clubs over the years I have been watching the CCL are more than a match for most CCL 1 clubs in Cup games.
  21. Thanks lads,for your positive words,so heartwarming. I wish you both well at Ashford Town and Dorking and await your not so boring posts as mine,in anticipation.
  22. Rich,so you have to be Officially involved with a CCL Club to comment on this Forum ?
  23. Nice to see Ken Reed back in Football,also Scotty 'Dog' Robson doing the u/18's
  24. Thats the key,if they have the Ground Grading,under these current situations,you will never see 3 Clubs ever promoted from Division 1 again.Dorking could languish at Step 6 for years.
