Fulham - The £25 Story!

Fulham - The £25 Story!

His England hopes may have been put on temporary hold due to an ankle injury picked up at Blackpool but David Stockdale has certainly made his mark in the Premier League this season.

Today, in one of those pull-out bits dedicated to the weekend football that the tabloids print, there`s a lovely little tale about how £25 saw a dramatic change in Stockdale`s career direction.

Whilst at York City David was, apparently, on a mere £175 a week and when he asked for a rise to £200 was shown the door with Stockdale explaining,

"They told me I was money-grabbing. I was on £175 a week and I asked for £200 because I was travelling and wanted expenses."

"They said I should concentrate more on my football. They lost out."


I`d love to know who was the skinflint who wouldn`t cough up the extra £25 wouldn`t you!

You might find it funny because Fulham are a Premier League team but for a side in the Conference that extra £25 per week (£1600 per season) could be quite a lot. £175 per week is roughly £9100 a year (not season - 12 months). Even if they do 4 hours training every day for 7 days that over £6 per hour. For a small club to be paying the wages of a moderatly sized business is fair. My last pay rise was barely £1000 extra per year.
