What guarantee is there that Chett wants to stay or indeed has been asked to stay ?
You can rest assured, that if KW leaves so will most of the more experienced players.
Good points made about our future , and yes , the academy may well exist but will not have the profile and attractiveness which the current management team have created.
To be perfectly frank,the club cannot afford Kev and Chetts under the present financial structure and the club has been punching above its weight this season mainly because of the academy production line !
It appears that IFC have relied heavily on Mr. Mantle and high prestige pre - season friendlies. Unfortunately both will be missing next season.
On this basis the club must invest in Kev and Chett.
The Commercial and Fundraising aspects of the Club have been woefully inadequate for a club of NPL status. The farcical arrangements 're the Clubhouse are also a millstone to far !
Income,next season,concerning season ticket sales and gate receipts will probably be severely jeopardized. On the coach to Workington, only one person has purchased a season ticket and these fans are diehards who regularly attend home and away.
At the gate prices will also have risen and a new management team and a new squad of players have to succeed on the field or gates will be lower than the current average.
The announcement 're change of ownership was badly timed coming out on the matchday at Blyth. The announcement of season ticket prices and substantial price rises were also negative and no one will buy into uncertainty after the Chek Whyte debacle.
With regard to Mr. Mantle selling the club , I heard two weeks prior to the announcement of sale, that the club had new owners from overseas. On this basis is Mr. Hardtop actually the owner or a representative of the new owners ?
Finally, the statement by Nigel on the club website is a very honest assessment of the value of Kevin (and Chett ) and the club cannot afford to pay them the market salary which they can attract and deserve.
