I thought I would share this with you. At Bradford PA we have just re signed a player who because of the financial situation clubs are finding themselves in has told the club he will play for a pound a week yes £1. I doff my hat to you Adam Novokowski what a star.

You won't be saying that if he turns out to be a complete horse!

He has played for the club for a few seasons. Not the best player we have just a squad man. He usually comes off the bench. He could have gone to quite a few local clubs and earned a couple of hundred a week maybe his day job pays well so most of his football money would go in tax I don't know. On the face of it a very good gesture especially when we are talking of salary caps and clubs struggling to survive.

Touch of class, you hear to much about players squeezing clubs for every last penny, nice to hear a of a player that has the club at heart.

My cap is doffed sir

East End Park is a symbol of all that is DAFC.

Better having a £1 a week on a horse than £300,000 neils

Illegal as below minimum wage level. Can’t get a wage of just £1. Can play as an amateur for £0

Those darn laws. And they would’ve gotten away with it if is wasn’t for those darn pesky Pars supporters. 😁

Times change, way back in 1996 the SFA pro contract was £1.00 a week plus expenses.
My son along with hundreds of others signed one with East Fife, maybe the minimum wage was the end of Scottish football as clubs could no longer scoop up youth players?
Most forms ended up in a drawer and never saw the light of day until another club came sniffing!
