Fancy updating the Ground fund total to show a £40,000 donation, then saying a PR stamenet will come out at a later date.
Either, dont announce it and add it to the total till its come out or make the total increase at the same time as the announcement.
For a collective group of people, they do lack brains.

Basically a brewery has offered £40,000 to go towards the clubhouse, on condition is stocks their beers and carries their signs outside the club.
Breweries have deals like this up and down the country.
Not a bad deal for the brewery, given the student union potential of the place.

Tufty,

For once you're dead right, Tufty. The splash / impact it could have made has been reduced significantly. Next thing Cristiano Ronaldo will appear with Hedley sponsoring him on the team page before we announce the signing.

Certain individuals lapping up the attention for getting a deal with the brewery.
Well lets put it into perspective, its not exactly a hard deal to do.
Several breweries would be competing with each other to get the chance to have their brand in a new football social club and college campus.
The brewery stand to make a hell of a lot of money out of a decent social club, just look at the money that Greenhalls threw at the Linnets club over the years.
I bet the board bent over to the first offer they got, rather than playing the leading breweries off against each other. You only have to see what sort of offers the likes of Pavillions get off Carlsberg or St Maries off Carling.
Yes, its a good step in the direction of getting the club back to Runcorn, but this money is not there for the ground, but for a social club and it will take a hell of a lot more than the £55,000 in the current fund to build a social club, never mind a ground. Furnishings alone in a social club cost a hell of a lot more than £40,000.

So before the board are so quick to encourage self congratulations, lets save it for when there is something actually phsyical for people to see, bricks and morta, goalposts and stands.
The rate we are going, with the premature applause, I wouldnt rule of the stadium being named after one of the board members. The Dave Dutton stadium, has a certain ring to it dont you think?

Would the club not be better actually start building the ground once they have x amount[but not the whole lot] to atleast NWCL standard and then build to a better standard once progressing up the ladder?

Thoughts?

If they know where the social club is going to be located on the site, they could build this before the ground is built. It would allow the club to have a base in the town and to start raising revenue over the bar.

i dont think anyone is after praise trevor i think people are working hard and the deal announced this week is good news the board can only do so much and needs help from everyone in runcorn to make the ground happen if there is anything you can do to help im sure the club will be please of your help
tufty has some great ideas on here at the moment if the club were given these ideas im certain someone will read them and try to do something down those lines to raise some much needed money
