Still - it's all been great publicity, hasn't it ?

There's a few got to the last 16 - Egremont spring to mind for some reason - don't think anyone's got further.


Twelve Apostles might have done better with a full team. :)

In Topic: End of the Testimonial ?

Pretty much all the proceeds from the testimonials for Premier League players go to charity. It's very very rare these days that a player gets the proceeds (I'm unaware of any cases). Tax exemptions for charity should remain intact.


That's a fair point and I'm sure the exemptions will be in place for properly structured charities.


Are you aware of any examples of charitable Testimonials outside major soccer clubs ?

I think testimonials in recent years have played a part in keeping players at clubs and in the Sport of RL too

There are a few effects. 


Firstly, you won't need RFL approval to have a Testimonial.  Anyone can have one.  I can have one.  You can have one.


Secondly, the consequence of that is that the Testimonial might lose its cachet and Testimonials in general might make less money.


Thirdly, the player doesn't need a Testimonial Committee.  He can run it himself.

Oh my! Have you also left as well as Nahaboo?


I'm not a Fev supporter, pal.  Though they are my local club and I have a lot of friends there.
