Not sure if it's been mentioned elsewhere or if it's to do with BT but both of our games with Southend have moved to Fridays now too...


...absolutely ridiculous.

Your game away at Notts might well be Friday as well. Us and Forest are both at home that day, so depends whose turn it is to move.

You may yet be saved by the police not wanting Notts vs Grimsby on a Friday night.

Starting to think this is all a massive conspiracy from the Brotherhood members to ensure we are taken out of the running for the esteemed accolade of Highest Percentage of Home Supporters Taken Away 2021/22. An accolade we consistently smashed the rest of the division in during our Conference v1.0 Years.

I though that was Chester? they used to take 500-600 away and their home attendance was almost the same.

Now this is one that I would be happy with as this is my start of February shift pattern: :)

They moved our game last year for that reason, then Forest game got moved for TV. So neither side played on Saturday, disgraceful making part time players play on a Friday. :ffs:

We started playing the same time as them later in the season when it had been behind closed doors for ages. Think the game with you was really on so presumably got moved when they thought there was going to be a crowd.

That could be tough on Stockport as they play Aldershot on 9th October so bringing your game forward would mean that they only have the 13 days recovery time so I would expect they may request to get the Aldershot game pushed back to the Friday night also to allow them to have a full 2 weeks recovery.

It does seem that GTFC agreed to the move of our game at Stockport - in the interests of "transparency" it's on the GTFC website.

Thank you Paul Hurst, at least we now know we were asked if we'd change. The Southend changes are obviously 'tit for tat' as they asked for their home game to be played on a Friday, so we returned the favour!

Reply from the Mariners Trust about the Stockport fixture change posted on The Fishy:

"Direct impact of TV – As part of the TV contract with BT, member clubs are required to facilitate fixture changes for live TV with clubs receiving compensation as follows ,home club £6k and away clubs £2k. The kick off time for Saturday’s is a regular 5.20pm slot which does make it hard for supporters travelling long distances by public transport to get home again. The league and BT will argue the live coverage gives thousands of fans who wouldn’t normally have travelled to chance to see their team.

Indirect Impact of TV – This is when a game has moved for TV and one of the teams has another fixture within 48 hours. In that situation the team affected can apply for its next fixture to be changed. This is what has happened for the Stockport game, they have applied for the change, which is their prerogative and we have no say in the matter. The only choice we had was 7.45 pm on the Monday or 7.45pm on the Tuesday and the manager chose the Tuesday as it gives the players more rest period.”
