FA Trophy Darlington - travel, pubs etc.

We haven't had a cup run for years. A good cup run would be very well received and the financial implications could be massive in our dire financial state.

I'd estimate that prize money and ticket sales would be over 250k for winning the thing. That's staff getting paid, brewery getting paid etc.

And a trophy in the cabinet
Well BW was one of my selections even though i did say away, sorry crap draw again, Going to cost the club money we dont have to play it at RH unless which is doubtful there is a decent turnout for it, hopefully the club wont make it too expensive so that many will turn out to cheer the blues on .Would be nice to have a decent cup run ,but perhaps thats meant for the ESC.
Some positives.
It will be a competitive fixture and if we play some "fringe " players we will learn more about them and they will not be told it was a "gimme".
Beat them and we will be stronger.
And no matter what the league game result is the week before it will be a spicy, and for me, a game of interest.
Unlike us to get a crap draw!! Horrible team to play! Only advantage we have is it's at home but they already did us 0-1 at start of the season! They have the name boredham for a reason.
