Look where we are signing players from - players coming from a higher level / clubs that are known to pay well or players who have been 'player of the season' for their past clubs are generally paid better than those stepping up from two divisions lower / emerging from the youth team.
Look at who other clubs are signing, and do the same calculations.
York have recruited heavily from Conference Gateshead and poached the best players from Darlington - they're well backed.
Curzon Ashton have lost players to Stalybridge / recruited from Glossop - they're poorly backed
we're definitely closer to the former. York are almost certainly spending more than us. Some of Kiddy / Brackley / Chorley / Southport / Spennymoor probably are, but I'd be surprised if they all were, and for my money 3rd sounds about right, albeit 2nd-5th wouldn't surprise me.
