Rewind ten years before we went bust. I recall being told by the current board that they wanted to take over the club, keep us in the Conference and that we could stay full time. Thats with 2m+ debts saddled to the club. The club then goes bust, reforms and has a period of ‘success’ to engage itself with a new fan base. We also have the 2m debt wiped out. This season we have seen teams like Guiseley turn full time, whilst we are still part time and taking kids from Hull when selling players. The question I’d ask is how ten years ago with 2M debt did Bossomworth and co think we could remain full time at this level, yet ten years later with no debt, why we cant afford it? Going full time seems to be further away than ever. Not going to criticise the board who I feel have been very good in keeping finance in check but at the same time we can’t keep being fed bullshit that the aim is to return to the football league, because as a part time team it simply isnt going to happen.
The above unashameably stolen from our facebook page but is spot on.
