Darlington Team Up With CJP To Stream Games

Darlington FC have teamed up with Ross on Wye based CJP Broadcast Solutions to 'stream' all their home games this season.

CJP will supply the club with a Streamstar X4 Live Production Studio which they will use for their 'Quakers TV' channel.

CJP is the company who recently streamed the friendly between Hereford and Newport.

"With all the uncertainty about attendances this coming season we knew we wanted to make sure we could provide a streaming service for our fans who might be shielding or unable to attend due to restrictions," said Stuart Armstrong who commentates on Darlo Fans Radio. 

"As well as that, we know from our work on DFR that we have lots of listeners already from all around the world who tune in religiously to keep up with the team and be part of the Darlo community through the chat rooms we have." 

The price for each game will be £7.99 or £125.99 for a 'season ticket'.

National League won't start without fans

It is being reported that the National League have told clubs that the season will not start without supporters.

The campaign is set to start on October 3 with the second qualifying round of the FA Cup, with the league season commencing three days later.

However, with coronavirus cases rising, there are fears that supporters may not be able to watch games at elite level from October as initially planned.

The Prime Minister is set to address the nation tomorrow where it is understood that new measures/restrictions may be made. What impact that has on sport is unclear at this stage.

FA Cup draw on Friday

It is understood that the draw for the Second Qualifying Round of the FA Cup will be at 1pm on Friday.

Hereford, along with the other National League North and South clubs, enter the competition at this stage.

The first qualifying round is taking place this week. 

Merthyr Ask To 'Suspend' Season

Merthyr FC have asked the Southern League if they can 'suspend' their season with immediate effect.

The request has been put in after Merthyr became the only Step Three club which can not allow spectators to home games. 

The situation at Merthyr is interesting in that it's the Welsh Assembly restrictions that are affecting the club. 

Should the club play their home games behind closed doors they could run out of playing budget money by the end of November

Here's their statement:

After significant debate and soul searching the Board Members ‪on Wednesday evening, concluded that due to the rise in cases in Wales caused by COVID-19, the current local lockdowns in place in neighbouring Caerphilly CBC and RCT, the fact that Merthyr and Newport are included on the ‘watch list’ of the Welsh Assembly Government, the level of testing that had been taking place in Merthyr last week, plus the Assembly's current restrictions that prevent any fans attending our home games, the Board extremely reluctantly decided to submit a request to the Southern League that our 2020/21 season is 'suspended' with immediate effect.

The initial outcome of the Board meeting was to request additional time to fully consult with our members. However, when we were advised on Thursday that the procedure would prevent this as the season was about to start, we were left with no choice but to start the process which is the last thing the Board wanted to do given the importance of the situation we now find ourselves in.

We anticipate that the restrictions regarding the blanket ban on allowing supporters into grounds in Wales are unlikely to be relaxed in the near future and that the next step taken will possibly be to actually increase the restrictions on gatherings which may not be lifted for a number weeks, even possibly months.

We are currently in a unique position out of the 88 Clubs at Step 3, as the only one that is prevented from playing home games in front of our own fans. The National Game Board has consistently stated that it would not be possible to start the season at Step 3 and below playing behind closed doors, but that’s exactly the position that we now find ourselves facing for an indefinite period.

To mitigate against all of the above the Board considered the following options:

Option One - We take our games across the border to play in England. Costs increase due to ground sharing and we lose significant match-day revenue including bar, catering, hospitality boxes, Match and ball sponsor, sale of Club merchandise and car parking income.

Option Two - We start the season playing behind closed doors. There is no match-day income generated that our business model needs, our anticipated and current financial reserves that we have already ‘ring-fenced’ to pay the playing budget would run out in late November with no fans in the ground. This would put the Club in a position where we would inevitably be eventually trading insolvently and we could not allow that to happen.

Option Three – We request that our season is ‘suspended’ subject to an agreement that we retain our place in the Southern League Premier Division. There is already precedent for this course of action with Guernsey and the Isle of Man being allowed to ‘hibernate’ for a season. In order to achieve any chance of obtaining approval the request had to be made on the Friday morning, to ensure that all of the necessary steps could be taken.

We have been advised that the National Game Board will not penalise any Clubs due to the pandemic and we would also be able to retain our place in next seasons FA Cup, due to the unprecedented circumstances that we currently face.

The Board fully appreciated the fact that it was an extremely difficult situation to request a suspension from the league on the very eve of the season, but we were advised that this option would not have been open to us if we had actually started the season.

Given the pressing timescales, the Board unfortunately had insufficient time to consult with all owners. However, on Thursday Board members carried out a representative sample telephone survey of the members whose contact details we had, in order to canvas a consensus of opinions. This resulted in a poll with 77% favouring suspension as the least-worse option.

The Board did consider releasing a holding statement, however, it was felt that this full factual statement would be preferable to the membership.

This suspension only involves the 'football side' of the Club and all of the community elements including hire of the 3G pitch and the hospitality section will continue to operate as normal.

We will also have to forfeit the FA Cup tie against Poole on Tuesday.

In closing, the Board would like to reiterate just how difficult it was making this decision in these unprecedented times. The Board’s intention was to only act with best interests in terms of the preservation and long-term viability of the Club.

Gowling Hopes To Add To Squad Next Week

Hereford FC manager Josh Gowling is hopeful he can add a few more players to his squad next week.

Speaking to Keith Hall after this afternoon's friendly at Solihull Moors, which the Bulls won 1-0, Gowling said there was a player in the squad this afternoon from a club he won't mention.

"We are looking at him," said Gowling.

"We've got another lad coming in on Tuesday to have a look at.

"And we've possibly got another lad coming in on loan.

"We need a few more players, we're looking and we will get there.

"I think, especially for a loan player, we've got a bit of a better pull because of the club and the fans we get, hopefully we get the fans back in.

"And training where we train now means that we can look at some of the Midland clubs to get players in."

Live Stream Available For Hereford's Friendly on Tuesday

Trialist scores dramatic winner for Hereford

A screamer from a trialist at the death saw Hereford dramatically beat higher-graded Solihull Moors 1-0 in today's behind-closed-doors friendly.

The midfielder let fly from about 35 yards out to ensure the Bulls picked up only their second win in pre-season.

Meanwhile, at the other end of the pitch, Hereford had trialist goalkeeper Rhys Lovett to thank after he denied Adam Rooney after Solihull were awarded a penalty.

Due to coronavirus regulations, Hereford were only allowed to name a 20-man squad. There were a total of seven trialists in total, with four of them starting. 

Toby Raison started at the back after signing pro forms in the week, while Dan Jones returned following injury. Giles Coke - who signed this week after being on trial - also started, while Ben Pollock started his first game in pre-season following injury.

Jake Wright and Chris Camwell, two further signings, were on the bench.

Hereford started brightly and saw both Coke and Jared Hodgkiss have efforts on goal. Solihull also had chances through Callum Howe and Rooney before Lenell John-Lewis headed wide.

Rooney remained a constant threat for Solihull, but Hereford remained firm and fans will be encouraged that the Bulls also created chances themselves.

With 20 minutes to go, Lovett had to be alert to deny Rooney before he crashed an effort against the crossbar. Just a minute later, Solihull were awarded a penalty after Lovett brought down Joe Sbarra. But the trialist Hereford keeper redeemed himself by denying Rooney and saving the rebound.

The Bulls keeper made another important save to deny Jake Beesley and it was then left to the trialist midfielder to win it for Hereford with a stunning goal.

  • Solihull Moors: Boot, Williams, Cranston, Storer, Howe, Gudger, Coxe, Gleeson, Rooney, Trialist, Sbarra. Subs: Piggott, Beesley, Clayton, Hancox, Miccio, Clayton-Phillips, Carter, Maycock, Bushaj, Ball.

Hereford: Trialist (Lovett), Hodgkiss, Grimes, Raison, Jones, Trialist, Coke, Trialist, Pollock, Trialist, John-Lewis Subs: Owen-Evans, Klukowski, Brown, Wright, Trialist, Camwell, Vaughan, Trialist, Trialist.


Solihull team news: Seven trialists in squad; Vaughan on bench

Despite signing four players this week, Hereford manager Josh Gowling has still named seven trialists in his matchday squad for today's friendly at Solihull.

Four of the them start, including a goalkeeper, while goalkeeper coach Nathan Vaughan is on the bench. That may mean that he has been registered with the National League.

Only Toby Raison and Giles Coke from this week's signed players starts, with Jake Wright and Chris Camwell on the bench. Dan Jones and Ben Pollock return from injury, while Tom Owen-Evans and Demetri Brown are substitutes.

Team

Trialist 1 (Lovett), Hodgkess, Grimes, Raison, Jones, Trialist 2, Coke, Trialist 3, Pollock, Trialist 4, John-Lewis. Subs: Owen-Evans, Klukowski, Brown, Wright, Trialist 5, Camwell, Vaughan, Trialist 6, Trialist 7. 

Follow The Bulls At Solihull

Hereford FC supporters can follow the progress of their side in the pre-season friendly at Solihull Moors by tuning into Radio Hereford FC.

Keith Hall will have full match commentary from 2.45pm. 

Because of Covid-19 regulations adopted by Solihull, Hall will on his own this afternoon.

Hopefully, given manager Josh Gowling has added to his squad this week, it will be easier for him to identify players in the Hereford line-up as it's expected Gowling will put out a strong starting eleven.

Whether they will have numbers on the back of their shirts to help identify them remains to be seen.

Updated squad list

Hereford are still short of the required 16 players they need to register to The National League going by the signings that the club have confirmed.

Including goalkeeper Brandon Hall - who hasn't featured at all during pre-season and is understood to have left the club - the Bulls have 15 players.

Of those, six are defenders and five midfielders, with only two strikers (Lenell John-Lewis and Demetri Brown) named.

Former Academy player Rob Whitlock has featured in some of the friendlies so it is possible that he has been registered to ensure Hereford have the required number. Likewise, the club need a back-up goalkeeper, especially if Hall has left. Brandon Powell has decided to seek first team football elsewhere, but Rhys Lovett has been on trial.

The current squad list can be found here.

Experienced Football League player joins Hereford

Hereford have signed experienced Football League player Jake Wright.

The centre-back, who is 34, has made over 300 appearances in the Football League and helped Oxford gain promotion to League One in 2015/2016.

He then helped Sheffield United reach the Championship by winning the League One title before joining Bolton on loan last season, making 11 appearances.

Talking to Hereford's official website, Wright said: "I still think I’ve got a lot to give, a lot of years left in my legs, so hopefully I’ll be able to bring my experience from my promotions and help get this club back to where it needs to be."

Hereford manager Josh Gowling added that it will be great for Jamie Grimes to play alongside Wright and the new defender has got a great attitude. 

Raison Signs For Hereford


Toby Raison has signed his first pro-contract with Hereford. Last season he was a member of the U18 squad.

Manager Josh Gowling recently heaped praise on the youngster.

"Young lads these days nowadays don't always have the best attitudes, some do of course, but Toby is an exception.

"He wants to learn, he wants to do well, he wants to be at the club, he's knocking on the door constantly, ringing my phone saying when can I come in, he's been brilliant.

"He's come in, he's worked hard, he's played, even today he's played upfront, he doesn't care he wants to play football and be a credit to the football club."

Raison is 'absolutely buzzing' to have signed. 

"I believe in hard work, if you put in everything you can then you can’t have any regrets, and that’s my attitude," he told the OS.

"I like to think I’ve worked hard over the years to earn this opportunity, and I’m going to keep working hard to make the most of it."

More Additions To Hereford Squad Expected Today

With the requirement that clubs have to register 16 players 14 days before the season starts, Hereford manager Josh Gowling is expected to announce more additions to his squad later today.

At present, after yesterday's news of the signing of Giles Coke and Chris Camwell, Gowling has 12 players in his squad.

It is expected he will add one or two youngsters to the squad, probably Toby Raison and/or Rob Whitlock.

He also needs a back-up keeper. Rhys Lovett has been trialling with the Bulls. Whether he will sign remains to be seen.

Even if all three named above put pen to paper, Gowling needs one more name. It could be his own if all else fails.

Gowling Adds Coke To His Squad


Hereford FC manager Josh Gowling has added midfielder Giles Coke to his squad.

34 year old Coke started his career as a youngster with Queens Park Rangers but it was at Mansfield where he signed his first senior contract in 2005.

Moves to Northampton and Motherwell followed although injuries curtailed his appearances.

Then in July 2010 he signed for Sheffield Wednesday where he stayed for four seasons. Further moves followed, firstly to Ipswich, then Chesterfield and finally Oldham.

"I’m really happy to bring Giles in," said Gowling 

"His career speaks for itself, his pedigree, he’s been great around the lads, he drives the environment, drives it forwards."

Camwell Joins Hereford


As expected left back Chris Camwell has signed for Hereford.

Camwell has trialled with the Bulls since the start of pre-season and manager Josh Gowling is pleased to have captured his signature.

"Chris has been with us all season, so I’m happy to get him over the line," said Gowling.

 "'Cammy’ has done well, he can play in multiple positions and has done really well during pre-season.” 

21 year old Camwell started his career at Coventry joining the under 9's. He made his first team debut in April 2017. Later he moved to Coventry United who are in the Midland League.

"Absolutely buzzing to be finally sorted now, time to kick on and get ready for the season ahead," tweeted Camwell.

News Round Up

James Waite will spend a second season on loan with Weston super Mare. The Cardiff striker came to Hereford for a spell during the 2019/20 campaign.

Solihull Moors have signed goalkeeper Niall Clayton who was originally with Oxford United.

Hailfax will be limited to 1400 spectators at The Shay. 'It will come as no shock that this puts the club in a precarious position, very much in a situation where finances are not within our control and we’re working tirelessly to steer the club through these extremely difficult and worrying times.'

 

 

945 Fans Can Watch Guiseley

Guiseley FC have reported that up to 945 supporters will be able to watch their home games. This figure has been calculated assuming regulations for social distancing don't change. Last season their average gate was 793.

Interestingly they say that they are still considering whether to allow away supporters into their ground.

This from Guiseley:

Season ticket holders are still able to reserve their seat but all seating will be allocated on social distancing rules. To allow us to accommodate all of our fans we will utilise all seating stands for home fans. Unallocated seats will still be available for fans but may be set out as individual seats, all will be clearly marked. To retain social distancing, the bottom row of seats and all aisle seats will not be in use. All clubs have the option to not allocate a percentage of tickets to away fans, we are currently still discussing our approach to this.

All turnstiles and the Lions’ Diner have been fitted with perspex screens and staff have access to PPE. Tickets for matches will be sold online, any unsold tickets will be available for sale on the day, at a designated turnstile, payments can be by cash or card. There is a possibility that some matches will be sold out in advance, season ticket holders will be guaranteed entry. Contactless and cash payments will be accepted at the Lions’ Diner, with the club house catering outlet being cash only. The Club House bar accepts payment by cash and card but is all seater, standing is only permitted when queuing to purchase your drinks. A one-way system is also in operation. Drinking is still permitted in sight of the pitch. We would ask that you are particular mindful of your rubbish and ask that you please place it in the bins rather than throwing it on the floor.

The Club Shop will operate a one in, one out system. Programmes will only be available as a digital version and team sheets will not be printed. Team selections will be available on Twitter. The 50/50 draw will still occur with sellers located behind each goal, please bring the correct change if possible.

Smoking and vaping is no longer permitted within the ground, you may pass out through an exit gate to have a smoke but please ensure that you have your ticket with you to re-gain entry. There is a new Spectators’ Code of Conduct which we would ask you to read, this sits alongside our usual Ground Regulations.

You may notice as you move around the ground that some areas have a red poster up, until an hour before KO, these areas are deemed player only areas and we would ask you to refrain from using these until this time. The bar will be open as usual before the match but you will not be able to access the bar from the ground side until 1 hour before KO.

We do hope that you will feel comfortable enough to return to watching live football but we would ask that you are also socially responsible, please maintain a minimum of 1 metre distance between you and anyone outside of your “bubble” and bring your own hand sanitiser.

Gowling Needs To Register 16 Players By Late Tomorrow

Hereford FC manager Josh Gowling needs to register at least 16 players by late tomorrow.

The rules state that clubs have to do this 14 days before the start of the season which currently is set to be Saturday October 3rd. 

According to the Official website, Gowling has 11 players already signed but that figure includes goalkeeper Brandon Hall who BN understands has left Edgar Street.

Players signed are: White, Jones, Grimes, Pollock, Klukowski, Hodgkiss, Owen-Evans, John-Lewis, Brown and Finn.

Gowling may add a couple of youngsters to the squad, Toby Raison and Rob Whitlock most likely, and there is speculation that trialists Giles Coke and Chris Camwell may sign.

Even if that is correct Gowling will still be two short.

Expect some news of signings today or tomorrow.

Clarke Brings In Sneekes At Redditch

Redditch manager Matt Clarke has brought in former Hereford United coach Richard Sneekes as assistant manager.

"To have someone with Sneekes’ experience with us at the club will really add to what we do and will be a massive help to me on the sidelines and in the dressing room," said Clarke.

Meanwhile Kyle Perry, who played nine games for Hereford United in 2012, has left Redditch without playing a game.

Macclesfield wound up in High Court

Macclesfield Town have been wound up in the High Court over debts totalling more than £500,000.

The BBC report that £190,000 was owed in tax, while a solicitor of former manager John Askey and a financial lender were both owed £173,000.

Owner Amar Alkadhi had asked for a further eight-week adjournment.

Jason Cowley, who had been on trial at Hereford, had joined Macclesfield this week.

National League Club Match Programmes

Given the Covid-19 regulations many National League clubs face decisions about match programmes. With less spectators likely to be at games some clubs are considering whether to have printed copies of programmes.

Hereford have asked supporters to fill in a survey - https://www.herefordfc.co.uk/survey-2020-21-programme-survey/ -  whilst other clubs such as Southport have announced what they are proposing to do.

This from Southport:

A reminder that our Matchday Programme sales are changing.

Supporters still have the option available to have a printed programme by taking out a season’s subscription.

The subscription cost will be at the full rate of £52.50 for 21 league programmes now available to purchase online.

There will be no printed copies available to buy on the day. However, and this is a change to the original plan, we will be taking orders for printed copies on a match by match basis but the order must be made and paid for online at least 7 days ahead of the game. We are now able to do this because enough people have taken out a subscription to make it viable.

The subscription cost will be at the full rate of £52.50 for 21 league programmes now available to purchase online.

All cup games will be online only.

We will still post out printed copies if requested for an additional £35 for the season. Contact rob@southportfc.net for details.

There will now be several ways to obtain the programme.

You will be able to subscribe for the season and it will be sent out via e-mail at a cost of £30 this includes all cup games. This will be a pdf version.

You will be able to scan a QR code at the ground on a matchday and be taken to the page to pay £2 with the programme then being available on your phone or tablet.

You can order a pdf copy on a game by game basis (£2 each) and all orders submitted by 8pm on a Friday will be sent out by e-mail ahead of the game. Any orders submitted after this time will be sent out after the game.

Supporters who have taken out an e-programme subscription already will be given the option to “upgrade” to a printed version for an additional one off payment of £20.

Any member (paying monthly) adding the printed programme to their membership will be able to do so with a £20 upgrade payment in place.

No printed programmes will be given out free or part of a package with the one exception being our matchday mascot who receives a programme as part of the mascot package. Sponsors, officials, boardroom, players and press will be able to use the QR code free of charge.

EFL Claim Losses Of £200M If Fans Can't Return

The English Football League head of policy, John Nagle, has claim that EFL clubs will suffer losses of around £200M this season if supporters can not watch games in stadiums.

In a leaked letter seen by the Guardian, Nagle wrote “From our various political channels, we now understand that the next 48 hours are likely to be critical in determining the direction of travel on this issue.”

He also asked clubs to continue to lobby for a reopening, arguing that the necessary procedures have been undertaken to make it safe to do so.

The EFL are continuing with 'pilots' this weekend with the number of spectators capped at 1,000.

National League Statement

The National League has issued a statement about the safe return of spectators to football matches.

A statement from the National League:

The Chairman of the National League, Brian Barwick, has today written to The Rt Hon Oliver Dowden CBE MP, Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport to ask the Government to carefully consider how its pending decision on the return of fans to football grounds will affect its clubs, their employees, and local communities.

The National League has also asked the Government for permission to commence the new season on 3 October with fans in attendance with social distancing and other Covid secure measures in place.

Since the onset of the pandemic, the National League has closely adhered to Government policy and fully recognises the overwhelming necessity to protect people's health and well-being. Following the Prime Minister's announcement on 17 July that Government intended to bring back audiences in stadia from October each club has started to prepare for the 2020-21 season.

The National League has set the start date as 3 October, which is when 24 clubs would be due to play their first league match and a further 43 clubs are involved FA Cup ties.

In readiness for the safe return of spectators, National League clubs have calculated their ground's new socially-distanced capacity. Whilst crowds could be accommodated up to a level of 20-30% of each stadium's normal capacity in accordance with the Sports Grounds Safety Authority guidance, the National League has asked the Government to allow up to 1,000 spectators in all grounds from October as a temporary solution that is validated by the Government’s approved pilot events conducted in September.

Brian Barwick commented: “The National League restart depends upon crowds being allowed back in stadiums as live attendance is our clubs’ largest source of income.

"The Government urgently needs to set out a credible pathway for the safe return of supporters, and to ensure our football clubs can continue to function, and to perform their significant role in the sporting life of the country.

"We are proud to be a national competition with strong local connections.”

News Round Up

Hereford FC are urging supporters to renew their season tickets if they want to sit in either Block B, C or G. Because of Covid-19 regulations only a limited number are available.

Westfields have been drawn at home against Worksop Town in the First Qualifying Round of the FA Cup. Tie set to be played on September 22nd.

Telford have received £15,000 from the Premier League to help with preparations for the restart of football. Hereford have also applied for £15,000 from this fund.

Boston have signed left back Scott Duxbury. He was with AFC Fylde.

Wrexham Trust Might Sell Club

It appears that "two extremely well-known individuals of high net worth"have launched a takeover bid for Wrexham Football Club.

If approved by the Wrexham Trust, who currently own the club, some £2M will be put into the National League club.

The club has been in fan ownership since 2011.

"There are many hurdles to go through yet before we have a firm proposal to put forward to fans," said director Spencer Harris.

"In terms of any cash injection into a football club and especially at this level, it makes a significant amount of difference."

Hopes Raised That Supporters Can Watch Hereford From October 1st

A letter from the Sports Minister Nigel Huddleston MP to Tracey Crouch MP has raised hopes that supporters will be able to watch National League games from October 1st.

"It is up to respective governing bodies to determine what constitutes the boundary between elite and non-elite within their sports.

"In football's case, the FA's definition means that only Leagues below the National Leagues North and South can continue with spectators.

"However, subject to the successful staging of the pilot programme and the wider public health conditions, we hope to re-open elite sports fixtures including the National League for socially distanced spectators under covid-secure conditions from October 1st."


Supporters Can Now Renew Seated Season Tickets

Hereford FC supporters can renew their seated season tickets at any time from this afternoon until next Monday.

Given the Covid-19 regulations in particular about distancing the club can't promise a particular seat only a particular stand.

To help accomodate as many supporters as possible Block E is being made available. Prices to sit in this stand will be at 'terrace rates'.

In other 'ticket' news from the club, they report that over 250 terrace season tickets have been sold so far.

The Meadow End has been split into two to allow safer access and exit.

Refunds will be available should the club not be able to play all 21 home games. The formula for refunds is a bit complicated but in essence the club will refund 50% of the cost of any game(s) not played.

To renew a season ticket please go to: https://www.flowte.me/storefront/hereford-fc?pk=2933
