Just read that Dagenham have a one million pound budget mostly on less crowds than us. No wonder we are struggling to sign new players seems no one will commit to us because of our low wages/budget the lowest in the division by all accounts. Still rather get relegated than gamble like Chester have and go bust again.
God knows what Guiseley are forking out with over 40 players on the books and went full time.

My understanding of the club constitution is that we wouldn't spend more than we earned. I;m still not clear why that aspect was so casually disregarded.

I don't know the ins and outs of Chester but I can say as a Darlo fan we've had consistent trouble in setting sustainable playing budgets as a fan run club.

There are many reasons for this including constant churn of club board members and directors, inexperience of the ins and outs of running a football club, trying to finance getting back into Darlington at the same time as running the club, a previous manager who ended up with too much control and had far too much power, who wanted promotion after promotion - meaning constant budget pressure to meet his ambitions - basically we've tried to climb too quickly at the expense of financial stability and building solid infrastructure. Anyhow, it's not easy is it?

As for budgeting, it must be so hard to get right. You don't want to be so cautious that you relegate your club before a ball is kicked, and you don't want to be so optimistic, that you over-estimate income. But that's the problem isn't it, when you budget in advance it's basically an educated guess of future income.
