Remind me, what was the 'insurance claim?
Business Interruption insurance. Some clubs carry this and due to COVID they have now been able to claim on it.
Plymouth for instance got around 2 Million with their claim I believe.

Basically my understanding is its insurance on loss of revenue due to some event. Obviously COVID has done this so the insurance would cover loss of revenue for not having fans in the stadiums, concessions, hospitality etc etc.

Our claim would be nowhere near the amount of Plymouth's due to their bigger crowds etc, but would probably still be a good amount and extremely helpful with everything thats gone on over the last two years!

Fair play to the club for paying for this insurance (which many clubs don't do) as in hindsight it has now certainly been worth the money.

This is great, if true (and I note MT quoted in the DevonLive article). Do we know any more details?

There was no attempt to even ask people to wear face masks in the concourse of the SASS on Saturday, and few were wearing them. I put mine on to transit to the seats but felt it was unnecessary, as the ventilation is very good, but others may disagree. The inconsistencies in government advice / rules remain, of course - you can sit for hours talking loudly in a crowded and badly ventilated pub, but have to wear a mask in an empty supermarket... I expect by the time of the next home game the rules will have been changed, however.

Eli Collins on loan to Barnstaple?
He, or someone with the same name, is on the bench for them today.
