Through my job I've met a guy who is related to one Dexter Adams, coincidently I have also found out that we have some neighbours also related to him!. Obviously I know the name, but I wondered if you could supply me with a potted history of his involvement with the Bees as I would hate to get my facts wrong! Thanks Figgybee (Richard Dumayne)
We're on the case - answer soon (hopefully!)
I've had a query from a Margate fan - who scored the Barnet goal against Margate in our 2-1 defeat at Hartsdown in 1968? Any pointers would be much appreciated.
The exact date of this match was 03/02/68, and the scorer for Barnet was Roger Figg.
I have just read on a Wealdstone FC website that ex Barnet midfielder Steve Brinkman has died recently. Can anyone confirm this sad story as Steve was a favourite of mine. Perhaps a mention on the site would be fitting. Many Thanks, Tony Hammond aka Reckless
We are sorry to say that Steve Brinkman died of a Heart-Attack recently. There is now a tribute here.
me to ask why the UBFCSA don't use the Durham Suite as a
have discussed this possibility (only informally) on
various occasions, with various chairmen over the years.
The reasons are one of cost to the club. Meetings are
held once per month (first Thursday) and run from about
7:30 to 11:00 in the evening. Although there are
sometimes up to twenty people present at the meeting,
there are often less than this. If the club were to host
the meeting in the Durham Suite then they would have to
pay for the Barstaff to open the place up, get the
heating on (during the winter months) and close and clean
up afterwards. On top of that would be the costs of
heating and lighting.
The majority of the BFCSA committee do not have more than one or two drinks in the course of the evening, so for the sake of example - if twelve people spent £4.00 each, this would be a gross income of £48.00 to the club. Assuming the Barperson is on Minimum Wage of £4.00 per hour (This is probably lower than the minimum - and lower than the barstaff are actually paid?) and they had to be paid from 7:00pm to midnight then this would cost £20.00 staight away. Add to this the cost of heating and lighting and the amount the club would actually make soon becomes neglible, if not a loss.
This has always been the mutual conclusion over the years, when it has been discussed.
