COVID-19 update – 20.03.20

We wanted to give all supporters a brief update on the current situation at the football club and impact of the Coronavirus.

The Board of Directors met on Wednesday evening to discuss contingency plans and work out short, medium and long-term strategies to help see the club through these unprecedented and uncertain times.

As you will all be aware, the football club temporarily closed on Monday evening following the latest Government guidance, meaning the remainder of our non-matchday main sources of revenue from the 3G pitch and hire of The Magpies Suite has now stopped and the club therefore has virtually zero income at present.

At the same time, the club still does have expenditure to meet including wages of contracted players and staff, and along with many other non-league clubs we have compiled information as requested and are currently awaiting further guidance from The FA.

We will do our best to keep all supporters informed with the latest developments over the coming weeks and months ahead.

We would finally like to send our best wishes to our supporters, players, staff, volunteers and everyone associated with the club in these challenging times, and we look forward to welcoming you back to the Home of The Magpies when football returns.

Please continue to follow the latest medical advice, stay safe and look after each other.
