I see that the game at Tonbridge on Saturday is off for the same reason, as is Chippenham v Havant, and two of tonight’s four games as well.

The table is starting to look very uneven now with some teams having played 14 or 15 games and Havant only 10 and Welling 9. Hard to think things will change much in the short term at least.

Will be interesting to see if the FA decides that the Troohy is an ‘elite’ competition all of a sudden so that the Step 3 and below sides can start training in time to play on Saturday week.

I thought that the Trophy had been made an elite competition.

You may well be right - I know that in the F A Cup they had to let the teams from Step 3 and below be considered elite so that they could train and take part in the rounds that took place during the second lockdown. This brought about the crazy situation where Banbury could have a crowd on one Saturday for the (at the time non elite) Trophy, but not the next week in the F A Cup!

Looks like Peterborough sports in training tonight with elite status. I guess game on.

I did a rough calculation* that the remaining prize money to be given out in this competition is £176,000.

If we win on Saturday we receive £5,250.
If they called time on this year's competition and shared the prize money between the remaining 32 clubs, we would all receive £5,500.

Just a thought. Right now with numbers rising I just can't see how the league season can play to a finish, and it'll be made more difficult if we progress in this competition as we lose more opportunities to play league matches. I'll be surprised if next Tuesday's with Havant is on seeing as they've had 11 positive cases. All seems a bit irrelevant and this is from someone who largely relies on income from football continuing.

*So rough that it's probably wrong and we could stand to win millions by staying in.

I did the same calculation the other day and came up with £323000 (including winner and loser prize money) which would be roughly £10000 each if it is right - having said that, if we win it we get £93750!

Thank goodness I’m not in finance any more. £10k appeals more.

A win on Saturday is worth a minimum of £7000 as the losiing side in round 5 receives £1750.

I see that Havant have got a bye in the Trophy on Saturday as Altrincham have had to pull out because of a positive Covid test. They have re-arranged a league game for that day so hopefully Tuesday's game will be on.
