Has James Rowe got his Backroom Staff for next season? Last season, George Foster was the number two. I think that was to the end of last season? Think I heard that maybe Mike Green may come back as defensive coach? We have a new Physio whose name escapes me. Mike Nash is still part of the set-up.

Liked the 360 degree Video of New Meadow Park on GCAFC Twitter yesterday. Reading AP's Blog today, more progress being made at the ground. Be good to see the Buy a Brick Wall when completed. Looking forward to a New GCAFC Website.

Been announced that Jack Charlton, England World Cup Winner, and former Republic of Ireland Manager has died aged 85. Sad News.
  Remember him managing Ireland at the World Cup USA 94, and Italy 1990. Had some good players.

We have had 11 Seasons of this level of football. I remember our first game at this level in 2009, away to Southport. Going on the Supporters Coach, going North to Southport for a league fixture was a far cry from going to Chippenham or Halesowen in the Southern League. Losing the game 3-2, I remember being in the Bar afterwards. I overheard a Southport Supporter say to his mates, 'They won't last long in this League', or words to that effect. Our second Home league match at Cirencester Vs Droylsden was like men Vs boys. We lost 4-1, it was a quicker pace of football, all the teams could keep the ball. But season by season, we got used to this league. We have played against ex league clubs :- Stockport County, York City, Torquay United etc. Highlights for me from our time in this League have been :- The run of victories over Worcester City. The appointment of Mike Cook to stear us to Safety after the unsuccessful Chris Todd era. Going to ex league grounds with good crowds. Any Hightlights for you from our time at this level?

Just saw this on Chris Todd’s social media. Seems he’s trying a bit of acting by appearing in this music video!

Must have been living in a cage since January. Seems a bit irrelevant now. Did not realise that Odin Bailey had joined FGR on loan till the end of the season. Scored a brilliant goal away at Grimsby in February, then was out for 6 weeks. Follows Jo Jo Wollacott in having a loan spell at GCAFC then FGR. Recall him scoring a goal for Birmingham City at St Andrews, think it was on a Friday night. The short time we had him on loan, he impressed. A Chris Todd loan signing I believe? What loan signings have made a big impact at GCAFC? I think Michael Whittington made a big impact when he signed on loan from C********m Town. Scored a few goals for us. Was happy when we signed him permanently, he seemed to fade after a while.

Wonder what people think?  Did it make you think? Or did it not fit your narrative

So Hereford FC and Gloucester Rugby as well as City will no longer use Hartpury for training. Big hole in Hartpury budget one would think.
Glos rugby look to be in a finacial mess releasing many players mostly allied to South Africa and there departed head coach.
Seems that belt tightening is all over he place due to Covid19. The Richards link with Hereford using Hartpury seemed madness to me, believe the new Mgr felt training on 3g and playing on grass was a big problem as well as distance although not many players from Hereford I imagine if any?
Tough times all around and we should be grateful for sound business men at the helm.....
