Property developers and the death of non league football clubs


Isthmian league premier still wide open with Hamlet beating East Thurrock 2-1, still got a crowd of over a thousand just! Billericay slipped a little giving up another 2 points only 1 point ahead but still have 5 to play, Hamlet 4.

Billericay play Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, Tuesday Saturday! Both teams still have Margate (5th) and Folkestone (3rd) to play indeed the season finishes on the 28th with Hamlet at home to Margate and Billeracy home to Folkestone who if they win their remaining three games and the others capitulate could still win it.

Gate crashed to a 3-0 loss tonight whilst Salford won, so Salford 6 points to the good with only two games left. So Salford pretty much confirmed as champs.

Play offs here gate come - bye and then home draw in semis. Final will be at some club ground in league area, not sure if that will be a football league ground.

Oh, not really right place but congrats to Accrington Stanley (who? ) on getting promoted to league one. I'll open a bottle of milk to that one

 Well done to John Coleman on a tiny budget. A couple of years ago he did a good job at Southport and the chairman refused to keep him on....

Really going down to the wire in the Isthmian Premier League. Advantage Billeracy on Tuesday night with a 1-0 win. Leatherhead v Dulwich 0-0 at 89 mins last min sub, sub score in 90 th minute 1-0 Dulwich. Duce!

Billeracy go again tomorrow, your legs are feeling heavy boys, very very heavy!

There are a few sleeping giants going upwards. Hereford are promoted. Runcorn Linnets are virtually up. Weymouth are having a good season as are Scarborough.

Great to see Hereford on the way back, the big Hereford and Worcestershire clashes are on way of mind, probably the first game of football I remember was a Worcester Hereford game at the lane, my memory being it was so full I couldn't see.

Also good to see Weymouth also step back up, the alma mater of Sean Teale "man of steel" a southportian who made his name in non league had a full pro career ... trophies (RIP Ugo ) and everything! .... before returning to FA Trophy glory as manager of a village! Burscough. He did all this with one of the finest 70's moustaches known to man.

No idea what is going on with Southport. Equal club record for most consecutive home wins and then lose 6 on the bounce and haven't scored in the last 4.
This despite have the leading goalscorer in the league and one of the biggest budgets in the league.

Cannot see us getting another win. Were not safe yet and Kevin Davies looks out of his depth.

Well, Salford lost and harrogate tried in vein to keep their hopes alive by also losing. Salford champs, Harrogate should get second but Brackley can still pip them if they win both their remaining games and gate lose their last match.

I had a lovely trip to the beach prior to Hamlet demolishing Folkestone 3-0 some mighty fine football played unfortunately Billeracy managed to come back at Margate to win 2-1. Still not over but Billeracy's to loose. One of the most enjoyable seasons I have had watching football for decades, shame about the politics.
