A huge thank you to everyone participating in the Strikers are Key scheme for the forthcoming season. All 50 balls have been “sold” with a total of 165 people taking part in individual syndicates. Fantastic.
We have five brand new syndicates joining the game this season too - welcome one and all. The SAK Board in the Players’ Bar is being updated accordingly!
The usual rules apply - £200 per League game, £50 per designated goal scorer, 4 keys, 50 balls, safe, velvet bag, accordion, gold jacket. It’s all clean, fully sanitized and ready for action!
This season’s designated goalscorers are Omar Bugiel, Tobi Sho-Silva, Callum Kealy, David Ajiboye, Will Randall and the Legend Dundo.
Whilst we are all desperate to get back together in the stadium and in the bars, the first draw of the season WILL take place this Saturday around 5:30pm in the MBA Lounge after the match v Maidenhead United adhering, of course, to all social distancing regulations. We will also film it so as to share later with all SAK players.
Clearly it will not be the “normal” SAK jamboree but the show WILL and must go on
The first Strikers are Key draw of the new season duly took place after our excellent 3-0 victory against Maidenhead United..not in the circumstances we would’ve wished for in a packed, vibrant, noisy Players’ Bar celebrating a great first-day win but it took place nonetheless.
The guys from SUFCTv filmed the draw which, so as not to spoil the surprise, will appear on line tomorrow morning
Congratulations to “The UVs”,owners of ball number 24, whose ball was plucked from the purple velvet bag after Saturday’s thrilling 4-1 win v Solihull....in front of at least some of the Sutton family as well. A very emotional day.
Beverley Crane, Julian Crane and Vince Michael scooped the £1250 prize when Shan promptly chose the right key on their behalf (see SUFCTV video on separate thread). Well done to them and thanks to them for donating a chunk of their winnings back into the UWS2020 scheme.
All round.. a rather special day.
Draw 7 comes immediately after tomorrow’s match v Chesterfield. Watch out for SUFCTV’s coverage

merchandiser: You guys make me laugh, have you been to many away grounds, I don't think so. When we travelled up north for most of the trophy rounds last season, you would not believe, it was like going back to the seventies.

scorpioeyes: I predicted a relegation struggle with a totally inexperienced manager. Hope I am wrong, but it doesn't look like it. MG is out of his depth,that's obvious.

ggl: So are we now saying we have a manager who is not in favour of bringing in loan players and if the board decided to part company with him they cannot afford to do so ?

historyboy: So sorry to hear about the passing of Eddie Clack. I Remember him well.

historyboy: Sad to hear of the passing of Eddie Cack, I remember him well. I think that the said photograph publishsed by the club, of him sitting next to Dave Hermitage, isn't him at all; I think the picture shows Micky Goodall. Compare other pictures of both.

scorpioeyes: It certainly would be 'convenient' for Dover to have the season washed out. if they fail to turn up tomorrow,we should be awarded the game and 3-0 to our goal difference.Why should we be inconvenienced by any attempts to rearrange the game?

Burtie: Hello chaps. Is there any intelligence about the crowd situation for the game vs Hartlepool on 22 May? Does the club have a position on supporters?
Apr 24, 2021 17:02:01 GMT
scorpioeyes: I think these odds are quite amazing. If I was a neutral looking at the recent form and upcoming fixtures,I'd make hartlepool or perhaps Torquay as fave for the title. To have 'pool at 9s and us as evens is bizarre.

scorpioeyes: yes,'arrogant' is the right word. No objectivity allowed!
