Ye thats what this bod is doin keepin queit and hopin it will all go away and it wont call a meetin tell the truth and we can start from there to keep our club alive.

There will be a meeting as soon as practicably possible. Needed to see the crowd at the Keighley game to know what we can expect attendances to be for the forecasts going forward. Nobody is hiding, all the BoD were there at the game and available for (sensible) questions.

Interesting to hear the players told where they stand on Wednesday, do does that mean where knackered at end of season or what?

How does the BoD speaking to the players me we are knackered at the end of the year?

When we lost those 2 away games prior to the Bulls game, Fozzy on the radio said that the off-field stuff was affecting the players. The club do not want that and are trying to keep the players informed as much as possible to try and ease any concerns they have.

Good win for you...

Genuine question, do you think the reduction in admission price brought many extra through the gates?

Unfortunately not many, if any. However the main answer to the drop in attendances has been the price so the price has dropped and still the "fans"don't return.

Was a nice gesture by the club shame it's wasted on a county that's given up on semi pro rugby. Really hope am wrong but as a so called heartland we are a joke. People of Copeland don't care which is heart breaking whatever your reasons for not coming please come to one match. If you have ever had a passion for whitehaven save us a 2000 crowd would do us the world of good

No, it was financial suicide. We have that core number of fans, who will turn up whatever.

HW

Lost over £3k by reducing prices

Average take on the gate at £16 was £10, with VAT still to come off.

Care to expand on this

Nobodys goin to come back till the bod start bein honest with us fans if we are more in debt that we think just tell the truth .then we can start doin somethin about it.

The debt is what was stated. The projected loss going forward is where the difference of opinion lies in regards to having the funds to see us through this mess. That is and always has been the truth and has been stated many times

Just under 600 is poor considering the price was dropped. It does make you wonder if the people of Copeland actually want a team.

Poor is an understatement but I fully agree with your second sentence.

It looked more than 500 there yesterday, but the big thing for me is how we advertise games, we've got a little board on the way into town with who we play next on and thats about it.
The forum, Twitter and facebook are great for people who use social media but theres alot that don't.

Agree

Have the club got rid of the burger van now as well? And are doing it ourselves? If so thats a good call just need to have a fridge for cold soft drinks cause the bottles were warm yesterday not good in that heat for the kids.

That was Simons choice on Sunday.

Can someone please clarify. When the attendance is declared does it include adults, concessions and children?
