Property developers and the death of non league football clubs


Well worth it regardless of the outcome. Admittedly I went with my daughter but generally you dont get to be involved in too many out pouring of joy when you have a genuine involvement in something be it as a regular fan, administrator or player. It was fabulous to see the people who have worked so hard all season long against the odds firstly, finish the season(!)and secondly, on the field get rewarded for years of work. Since promotion from the Ryman league south as it was they have incrementally been building a playing set up with resilience and depth.

Hamlet have been in the play offs for three consecutive years and if Billericay hadnt had the enormous cash injection from an owner prepared to pay big money in salaries and transfer fees! We would have been in a strong position to win the league. The time is right, most players in the squad will cope with the step up and there are one or two who could step up to the conference perhaps League 2 in the way Ethan Pinnick and Erun Oztumer have done at Barnsley and Walsall. Interestingly Hendon have 5 players selected by Jamie Vardy for his non league academy.

Enjoy the game and good luck to Harrogate. Yesterday was so tense, got home in bed by 9:00 had to be woken at 7:00! Which is spectacular given I normally only sleep for 5-6 hrs. So set your alarm clock afterwards!

Good - the two biggest spenders have gone up.
Southport will probably start favourites now for Conf N next season with all the money behind them.
Mind you therefore still some big clubs - Kiddy, Hereford, Brackley, Stockport.

In Scotland the Blue Brazil, AKA Cowdenbeath, survive for another season in the league. Beat Cove Rangers 3-2 ( 3-2 on agg ).

Cove were evidently slightly upset about their goalkeeper getting taken out by a trip before the 70th minute winner was fired into an empty net. They had 3 players sent off in injury time, one for dissent and two after a mass brawl.

 they'll need a huge turnaround in their form, at least returning manager Liam Watson knows the club but who knows what is the right formula for success

Congratulations hope you had a great day. Hereford will be a great addition to conference North slightly gutted we wont be playing them but they will get some decent local games Kiddy (great soup at the ground and beer at the Seven Railway Station by the ground) Telford, Nuneaton but a bit of a treck to Harrogate but I hear the black pudding is great.

Black Pudding? Harrogate! ? We might be from Yorkshire but we're posh in this neck of the woods. Now, where has that second bottle of prosecco gone to?!
