paultheroyal Hope the link works - it made me laugh - gives you an idea of the new ground too.

paultheroyal I have found the answer to my own question lol. It is basically 30% of ground capacity. So in Basingstoke's case will be 400 this weekend.

Almost. It's 30% of the minimum capacity required by the ground grading rules for the league in question.
see Appendix C in this doc (we are in stage 2 now)
file:///C:/Users/Mark/Downloads/national-league-system-club-guidance-covid-19-return-to-football-24-september.pdf

Basingstoke are at Step 4. The minimum capacity for grounds at step 4 is 1,350, which x 30% = 405, which has been rounded down to 400.

So a step 4 club with a ground with a capacity of 13,500 and would still only be allowed 400 fans through the door.

Daft, but fair, I suppose in that all clubs have the same cap.

Do Rangers share the same ground as Thame United ?

Agree with that, not even the “glamour” of someone at step 2, or someone from an entirely different league set up, just a trip to north London to play about as good as you can currently get in the Isthmian Premier (Haringey are currently equal top with 3 other sides) - still at least fans can go I suppose. Mind you I suspect Bracknell will raise their game being the ones with nothing to lose and they’ve had a bit of penalty practice!


Lost 5-1.

Wonder if there was an impact from OMA’s bad news going down at Bracknell?

Any update on that?

Won't be back at the club til Thursday, will do some digging.

.


I appreciate it may be difficult / private / hearsay still but any update on this OMA?

Tony Le Mesmer Reading City v Ardley on Saturday OFF due to Covid issues in one team, not sure which one.

...positive test among the City squad; after their game at RWBT on Saturday - hence this Tuesday's Cup tie at Long Crendon was scrubbed mid-PM; as was the forthcoming league game vs Ardley this Sat.

Flackwell v Westfields in the same section is also off at the w/e (COVID in the visitors squad) ... as is the hastily re-arranged fixture between the Heathens and Ardley - that's now been put back to Tue 27th (19:30 KO)


..here's a brief round-up of matches played this midweek....

Review W/C Monday 19th Oct

Tuesday 20th Oct
01 NAT
Wealdstone 3-2 Chesterfield - 'Stones' up to 9th

04 IL1-SC
Bedfont Sports 2-1 Chalfont St Peter
Chertsey Town
0-3 Marlow att 378
Hanwell Town 1-1 Northwood
Westfield 1-3 Hertford Town
- leaders Waltham Abbey drop their first points held 1-1 -by Chipstead on Tue
- Bracknell sit 2nd ahead on GD of Hanwell and two unlikely pace-setters: Ashford and Staines.


03 SLP-C
Nuneaton Borough 6-2 St Ives - att 305 also notable for the five goals scored by home forward Shamsi
04 SL1-C
North Leigh 2-2 St Neots Town att 150 – Nor Lye levelled on 91’
04 SL1-S
Frome Town 5-0 Highworth Town att 298
Winchester City 3-2 Bristol Manor Farm att178 - Winch in 4th AFC Totton go top after a 3-1 win at Larkhall on Wed night :Basingstoke are 2nd; Ciren T 3rd.

05 CCLP
Ascot United 3-1 CB Hounslow United
05 HELLP
Virginia Water 2-2 Burnham a point sees ‘Blues’ claw their way off the bottom
[Wed] 06 HELL1E Thame Rangers 6-0 Woodley UnitedRangers still in last place on GD, behind Woodley who have three games in hand.

05 WESSP
Alresford Town 0-3 Horndean
Fleet Town 2-2 Hamble Club
- att 160 - Was at this – ebbed/flowed nicely and probably a fair result – Fleet looked good going forward but were a bit lightweight in defensive midfield.
- Club working hard on the T&T front – entrance thru clubhouse – table service only. Food bar functioning though – stand looked quite full within the distancing measures.


NOTE - There is a meeting late this PM (Thu 22nd) of the STEP05 & 06 League Chairmen - not sure there's anything too significant on the surface but there's a lot of twitchiness around.
- specifically based upon the simple fact that no Agenda has been published/made publicly known - which is unusual.
They do meet routinely - but with the current situation some people are expecting the worst.
Presumably they will be discussing High-Tier zones - e.g. in the NW & NE - several leagues are shifting into semi-suspension already. :?
...more when I know it.......

Do Rangers share the same ground as Thame United ?

Yes- all part of the Thame football partnership

...and the big win was very unlikely to have been 'selection' shennanigans', involving any Thame Utd 'Firsts'; as has occasionally been alleged about other 'Reserve'/Dev' sides suddenly getting an upswing in form. The respective clubs are more of an affinity than a partnership.

So 'Rangers' are semi-independent of 'United' - indeed United's Reserves have their own set-up in Hellenic TWO North
- Rangers vs Reserves even met in the League's Floodlit competition earlier this month. I believe the former grew out of the ex-Oxford Senior League side Oakley who were regular winners of the Slough Senior Cup.

No info as yet emerged from this 'mystery' gathering of STEP05/06 League Chairmen - can't remember which clubs' Twitter site I encountered it on now and the NLM hasn't picked up on the story that I have seen.
