What Is Happening

Postby Kentstripe » Thu Apr 02, 2020 3:46 pm

The club issued a statement saying that all players and staff were furloughed and the club was being put into hibernation. So it stands to reason that there won't be many updates.

Given the average league 2 salary is reportedly around 1k a week, and the max amount those furloughed employees can earn per month under the scheme is 2k, I'd imagine most of the players and management will have taken much more then a 20% pay cut.

And as stated above, the club has made several facilities available to NHS staff etc so definitely doing their bit.

Club deserves praise for what it's done, not yet more moaning.

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
