Final Positiion by villager

Posted: 27/2/2017 at 12:45:45, 89 views.

My wager that Boro would finish in 10th position is coming to fruition , my £10 at 10/1 is looking that good I asked the bookie if I could raise my stake to £20 , but he turned me down as its too close too call , then he said I can accept your stake but only at 2/1. I declined and left it as it was .If Boro finish higher than 10th I will be elated .., any lower I will,be a little disappointed . But hey! football is coming home,thanks to all who have made this possible , when I first went down to the Athletic ground it was a shilling for adults and sixpence for kids ,yeh I know.. I must be 101 , but no 30 years younger ,it can still be exciting to watch your team in your home town ,walking down to the match scarved and gloved no need to go charging off along the A64 /M62 at a bigger cost when its here in your town on your door step ,start recruiting new members and lets make it all a huge Family Affair.

There is also rumour of the swimming pool end being covered, which is probably another 200 spaces, meaning 2,000 capacity, around 700 of which will be covered, 250 of which will be seated.

I know recently things haven’t been great on and off the field but I can’t help but feel a win next week might turn our season around. There is no reason to expect this….Only a fools hope that it might happen. Playoffs are still a possibility. Apart from Lancaster and Farsley anybody can make the remaining 2 playoff places. We have 3 home games on the bounce. Who knows?

It’s possible, but the odds are well and truly against us. by Malton Seadog User: Malton Seadog

Posted: 25/2/2017 at 19:47:30, 86 views. In reply to 'RE: Today’s results (Boro 8th)'

Even if we win all nine remaining games, giving us 75 points, we are relying on others to drop in form. Lancaster and Farsley are gone, and Trafford only need 17 points from 9 games to ensure we cannot catch them, and Ossett need 19 from 10 for the same.

Realistically, it’s Clitheroe/Glossop/Colne/Boro/Brighouse/Ramsbottom fighting for the last spot, and I’m afraid to say that we’re last in that mini league table when it comes to points per game.

It’s possible, but the odds are stacked astronomically against us, EVEN if we win all nine games.

Agree with the above posts. I feel an immense sadness at this time but am sure it is nothing to what the Board are feeling as they have worked closely with Dave for quite some time and must realise the void that has to be filled. I would like to add my thoughts, respect and thanks to every one of the board members for all they do for so many. Love you all.

Re: Naming of new ground - FAO The Board by BoroNo7 User: BoroNo7

There’s obviously a strong feeling on this forum that naming the ground or stand etc at the new ground would be a fitting tribute to Dave’s memory

I personally am in favour of such a move but bearing in mind my earlier post about us not owing anything at the new site I’d make the following points :-

a) the club’s tribute to Dave should be the final decision of the Board after sounding out a wide cross section of opinion

b) should it be decided that naming the new ground / stand etc is the preferred option then we may be pushing against an open door with SBC - see quote below from Jim Dillon, the Scarborough Borough Council Chief Executive who has issued a statement which reads:

“Many of our officers and councillors have had the pleasure of working with Dave in recent years on the Leisure Village development and new football stadium for his beloved Scarborough Athletic Football Club.

We are deeply saddened to hear of his sudden passing and our thoughts are with his family and friends and all players, staff and supporters of the football club at this very difficult time.

The new stadium will be a fitting legacy to the hard work and passion Dave put into making it happen"

With total respect…. by willesden seadog User: willesden seadog

Posted: 23/2/2017 at 11:00:37, 148 views. In reply to 'Ground name '

Emotions are extremely raw at present and passions are high. I know from a not too distant bereavement that the heart can overrule the head at such times. I feel that a time for reflection is required.

Without doubt, Dave Holland did so much to make sure that our return goes ahead. But then again it could be argued that Brian France and Richard Adamson played massive roles since the club was formed. I know that one of Dave’s hobby horses was that he felt that we were more or less the same club as Scarborough FC. Would it be right to overlook some of the heroes of that club; especially if we are looking to reach out to the whole of the town?

It’s a really tricky one, but one that may seem easier after a time to respect and reflect.

My personal view is that either the clubhouse or something like that would be more appropriate. Maybe a small road or area leading up to the ground if possible?

Being pragmatic using my knowledge elsewhere tells me that naming grounds or stands emotionally can lead to problems. What if in the future the club has the opportunity to sell naming rights for things, or a structure is replaced? What happens if all structures are named in memory of various people and then someone in the future surpasses their achievements or suffers such a tragedy? It’s very difficult to change the names once they are in place.

I’d also like to see a small garden of remembrance at Weaponness; where we can remember all our loved ones who followed the club most of their lives.

Like the rugby club have we need an area of remembrance. Don’t forget ashes were spread on the old ground, and Tony’s plaque. We need somewhere to pass on the memories of lost ones. A small garden area with a bench and plaques would be fantastic in remembrance of all. Back to boro money!?!?
I too would prefer to see the bar or a road up to the ground named after Dave rather than a stand or the ground.

How about calming down? by Streetdog

Posted: 23/2/2017 at 12:39:07, 169 views. In reply to 'With total respect….'

Passions definitely running high but any sort of tribute/memorial will be way down the list of what is needed right now.

Biggest tribute right now is a short-term one. Supporting the remaining directors in getting the club over the finishing line and fulfilling The Chairman’s vision.

The board have an impossible job in trying to accommodate the gap in knowledge and expertise on the ground committee. To get us home it is a gap that they are attempting to fill. God only knows the documentation that is needed to satisfy SBC, The FA, Everyone Active and any external funding bodies.

That’s without the menial day to day running tasks that the Chairman was picking up. That is without the tasks that a figurehead and chair would tackle as part of the job role anyway.

As Willesden states, now is the time for a respectful period of calm and reflection.

The chairmans duties and all the voluntary roles Dave was taking on need to be filled and not just left for the existing board members thats for sure. The knowledge and ideas and on going business that Dave was dealing with need to be taken on and not missed. Once the board have had chance to take stock and even take a breath i feel we as a club and joint owners need to hold a meeting or/and combine with a forum maybe to discuss all possibilities going forward and any possible short falls that need filling short term. My idea would be to openly invite anyone that has been on the board or filled any voluntary role since 2007 to attend and help discuss if any would like to step back into the fold and help strengthen our existing board moving forward. Also anyone with business background with interest in the football club to attend to possibly give any fresh ideas worth considering. Now certainly is the time to reflect on what a dedicated chairman Dave was and we need to ensure we have explored all avenues to get us back to scarborough with a united board and fans pulling in the same direction so we are strong and healthy firstly off the pitch but come August on the field also. Rip Dave Holland.

Personally I think maybe a ground or road or stand is too big to do, refer back to the facts above about new stands, new heroes etc etc.

I think one of the boxes should be just the Dave Holland Box, yes they’re not amazing or anything but that can be its own pull and we can charge a bit more and put more into it. This way if we ever move grounds again or things expand or whatever, that can remain and its a little novelty for people to be in it!

to be honest I have always thought he should have some sort of recognition for being the one that actually cut the deal to make this all happen!

It’s clear that most people think that perpetuating Dave’s memory by naming the ground/stand/ a road would be a fitting tribute , a plan which I personally would support, sadly as I see it this is not directly within the club’s gift as we do not own any of the site of the new ground

If we decide that this is the way to proceed we need an effective lobbying of SBC to get their support for such a move
