    They NEVER EVER spent outside their means,

    and now they have grown from a Dr.Martens League team with a rickety old stadium, to a club who have reached the promised land (3rd round). They have a brand new stadium and are talkin about building a hotel. also are now in contention for promotion to league 2..

    I've been saying it for years - eL sides spend too much on wages, until this close season not been foreign clubs queuing up for them.

    Same with UCD, and a few other teams I'm sure. Not a hard concept to grasp.

    No chance of promotion - Oxford and Dagenham will go up this season - even if one of those don't then York would be the third.

    And Burton were absolutely played off the park by Worcester in the FA Trophy a couple of weeks ago - one of the worst teams I've seen this season down at St George's Lane - and I include Hemel Hempsted, Basingstoke and Lancaster City in that

    Yes, but it is hard for other clubs to match UCD's other 'incentives' to players. What other club could attract players by offering scholarships to third level? Wages is just part of it - having UCD's funding for sports clubs - through scholarships particularly is a great leverage for the club.

    Do you know how much funding we get through the college?

    Do you know how much the club pays for the scholarships?

    Context, man, and facts!

    Cork IT is it? That's my point, most clubs have the option of doing something similar to UCD.

    Even if they did go up by some fluke - they wouldn't be able to sustain Full-Time Football on Football League budgets and costings - Tamworth tried it to some extent in the Conference - now in major trouble, Telford tried it to get themselves up to standard to push for promotion to the Football League - they went bust and had to reform as a new club in the Unibond.

    Scarborough are another team that have problems thanks to the cost of trying to sustain League Football a few years back...

    Even Hereford have stuggled a bit this season with the progression to League 2...
