I wonder what will; happen in the summer months. TK has said that this promotion is worth £1.2 million . I hope he uses some of this money to keep the players and manager together although we will need some strnegthening here and there.

Excellent Bees.
A lot of that money is funding for our academy which we had to disband. When you think Mauro, Johnson and Gambin came through it plus the ones who didn't quite make it like Lowe, Sykes and Allen, it was pretty fruitful having an academy.

Can anyone tell me exactly which Barnet players were awarded championship winners medals for this season?

Did KMB get one? He wasn't allowed to do the walk of honour.

We don't have a massive squad but I think everyone else got one. Cook was there despite not being named on the bench and the backroom staff got one too. I think there was a rule that you had to play 10 times to get a medal? Anyone confirm this?
Barnet showing all the flair of Rupert-the-Bears trousers, but lots more style!

That's in the Premier League - not sure the conference are organised enough to enforce that on the day! I thought you got 25 medals to distribute as you wished. The coach driver got one!

In european competitions and the World Cup you get a medal for being in the squad irrespective of game time - I've seen a few third choice keepers celebrating like they'd made the winning save over the years!

Judging by his tweets i don't think he did. I don't know the ins and outs of what is going with KMB but from the outside he definitely looks like he's being punished a lot more severely than a few misguided tweets should be. The club is on lockdown with any info on it as the players I'm friendly with won't talk about it. The whole thing appears to be quite complex.

I did see these tweets.
Keanu Marsh-Brown @KMarshBrown · Apr 25
Congratulation to all the barnet fc players on winning the championship
Keanu Marsh-Brown @KMarshBrown · Apr 25
Champions
Didn't see this earlier.
Keanu Marsh-Brown @KMarshBrown · Apr 25
@Fraserfranks still looking for my medal
1. He came on against Chester, (and scored).
On the bench against Brizzle.
2. Started against Lincoln, (and scored).
3. Came on as a sub against Nuneaton.
4. Came on as a sub against Dartford.
Not in Southport squad.
Not in Alfreton squad.
Not in Dover squad.
Not in Telford squad.
5. Came on as a sub against Wrexham.
Not in the Altrincham squad.
Not in the FGR squad.
Not in the Braintree squad.
Not in the Eastleigh squad.
Not in the Macc squad.
6. Came on as a sub against Kidderminster.
Not in the Gateshead squad.
Not in the Braintree squad.
Not in the Welling squad.
Not in the Torquay squad.
Not in the Telford squad.
Not in the Woking squad.
Not in the Brizzle squad.
Not in the Macc squad.
Not in the Torquay squad.
Not in the Chester squad.
Not in the Aldershot squad.
7. Came offf the bench and assisted the equaliser, (I think), against Dover.
8. Started against Aldershot.
9. Came off the bench against Lincoln.
10. Came off the bench against Grimsby.
Not in the Southport squad.
Not in the Woking squad.
Not in the Wrexham squad.
Not in the Grimsby squad.
Not in the Altrincham squad.
Not in the FGR squad.
Not in the Eastleigh squad.
Not in the Halifax squad.
Not in the We\lling squad.
Not in the Alfreton squad.
Not in the Nuneaton squad.
Not in the Dartford squad.
Not in the Halifax squad.
Not in the Kidderminster squad.
Not in the Gateshead squad.

So Cowler sits on the bench for us a few times and never plays but gets a medal.
Jade the Physio gets a medal.
The bloke who drives the coach to away games gets a medal.
But KMB who makes 10 appearances for us, scored 2 Conference goals and assisted the goal that won us a point at home to Dover doesn't get a medal? That's just wrong. I don't care what has gone on, that's just wrong.

What has happened to Iffy Allen? He is not in any of the photos and videos from the celebration.

He's was on loan at Wingate & Finchley. Is he still there?

[Edit]

Bloody hell! I knew that Danny Hart was there, but didn't know about Richie Graham.

On the face of it, seeing as we had 25 meals anyway, we should have given KMB one, if only because not giving him one does look so very pointed. But we don't know what's really been going on and I doubt that we ever will.

Clearly though things have long since reached the point of no return. KMB should just cut his losses and move on, anywhere, in an attempt to rescue his career and salvage his reputation.

Have to agree with you there.

It was a long time ago so I cannot find it, but the 25 medals comes from a series of tweets I had with the Conference.

They said the 25 medals include staff and can be divided how the club sees fit (i.e. no minimum games) BUT the club can purchase more if they want.

If so (and I can't be bothered to go through my history!) - then KMB Should get a medal.

However, I disagree with what's been said above - I think that Cowler, the bus driver and the Jayde Cook should all get medals, and above him as that's the close knit spirit that Allen pursued - they were involved more than KMB and attended more games. But I do think KMB should get a medal. Along with David Hunt, and that loanee who scored a couple. Why the hell not?

I doubt KMB is in Benidorm though.

Agreed.

If the physio, bus driver and Cowler, none of who kicked a ball in anger, got medals then so should KMB.

If there is a discipline problem then yes there is a time for a stick, but there is also a time for a carrot as well. You produce the goods and win a trophy then you should be rewarded for it. Otherwise what message are you sending?

I think KMB should get a medal, if we can purchase more, but I think Cowler, the bus driver (does someone remember his name?), Jayde Cook, Omar and the other member of backroom staff had a more positive input to our season, so deserve their medals first.

I'm not sure what KMB's response would have been if he had been given one of the medals. Walking out to get it and then walking straight off the pitch with it? Grimsby away suggested he had no respect for the rest of the squad, so it would have been pretty awkward having him come out onto the pitch amongst the celebrations.
