Fantastic news! If a little ironic (see Roman Abramovich of Non-League Football (page 3 of the forum threads). Do I get commission? grin.gif

 

But seriously - its about time there was some major investment in the Club - well done to the Board for having the foresight to approach him. A nice gesture by The Reporter for agreeing to step aside too.

 

Hopefully we can all start enjoying the football more now rather than

worrying about the financial plight of the Club.

Don't want to sound a killjoy as Brian and Glen have obviously worked very hard to get a great deal for the Fleet,..........but, we mustn't forget that we ran at a £60,000 loss last year + we have a suspended £10,000 fine hanging over us (which if our disciplinary record continues will surely be implemented).

Let the board use the money wisely,as I'm sure they will and we'll see Fleet soon become a top 10 Confewrence side.

Excellent news. That's £28,000 for the rest of this year and £45,000 per annum for the next three years. How much was the Reporter sponsorship worth (which I assume we will not now receive)?

Richard C, The money you send may not be much, but it sure adds up! Every penny counts and we already have a membership larger than many other club trusts that have been running far longer.

 

This news is fantastic! Hopefully it will give the management more time to think about the game rather than the money. Well done to all involved

Please don't let this stop others supporting the Fleet Trust.this has to spur us on to even greater efforts. Richard C I hope you send that cheque. I shall still be putting my goal money in my pennies on the pitch jar. Chatham Gary - very wise comments! <img src="/images/graemlins/bounce.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/images/graemlins/bounce.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/images/graemlins/bounce.gif" alt="" />

Wise words Gary - sensible usage of the money has to be the main priority.

Bit excited at first, but i have now realised the board must be careful with their money - its just this club has had so much thrown at it and weve survived, now we have some financial clout! Still musnt be complacent on the pitch or of it and we must aim to get our average crowd to 1500. We can now improve the squad or stands or whatever is decided! excellent

I Agree Richard. On the pitch improvements must come first however. There is no point in having pristine terraces if a) nobody is standing on them and B) if we are relegated back to the Ryman.

Just look at Sittingbourne. They had a super stadium, overcooked the books and became too amitious, too quickly.

Slow, steady progress has always been the Fleet philosophy, it hasn't done us any harm so far, so I feel there is no need to change the long term strategy.

All we need is trust and faith in the board, and lots of patience. We will get there in the end.
