Property developers and the death of non league football clubs


Hopefully Worcester will be successful in replay. The winners of the replay with Atherstone get Consett at home.

Corinthian welcome Leighton to Kent

In a battle of things aqua. The Coot club aka Wroxham (real nickname the yachtsman) welcome Bittern (see what I did there) the Bath club to Broadland.

Poor old Plymouth Parkway are off to the North East and Hebburn Town.

NB Worcester City have a 100% record against Liverpool in the FA Cup.

Klopp needs to show a bit of respect for the cup. A rampant City having dumped out Millwall in the previous round on the 15/1/1959 gave his boys a thrashing down St Georges Lane in front of 15K. We did of course share the gate receipts with the 2nd division outfit! Without the meritocracy of the English football pyramid Liverpool would not be where they are.

I couldnt get the link to work but presume it relates to Harrogates game being off.

On a similarly unhappy note Worcester lost to Atherstone on penalties so really given Worcesters mid table mediocrity thats it for the season. Depending on work commitments may go out to Corinthian for their QF.

They are a step 5 club with great facilities strong youth set up but no budget. There are two of the chairmans (Ron Billings) grandsons in the side (a canny way of not paying players) part of a very talented sporting family with Sam Billings captaining Kent @ cricket also having played for the club (he also played tennis for Kent).

The ground is on the chairmans farm so unlikely to be in imminent danger of property development!!

Had to be available to work this weekend so limited as to capacity to travel and therefore missed Hamlets 90th minute heartbreaking 3-2 loss to Bath City. So frustrating to nearly get an away point against the best team I have seen at Champion Hill this season (where we were well beaten).

Got my fix at Cray Valley Papermill, a 1-0 win for the millers. An early strike from distance securing the points on a blustery afternoon. I went with my 17 year old who thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon. Very welcoming and cosy bar at half time, £15 for both of us including two coffees and a programme! Still no Bovril.

So Town made the Trophy semis today, 3-2 extra time away win at fylde.

Best run ever for Town. Semis on 21 and 28 March. Marked in diary.

Notts County, Halesowen from level 8, and Concord (Level 6) or Royston (level 7) are in the semis also.

Get to the final and it will be around the playoffs in terms of timing, better to have success though and I do hope a wembley trip is possible!

Great win at Fylde apart from away at Notts County as tough a draw as you could get hopefully you will avoid each other in the semis. As you would expect by this stage particularly given the sides they have already beaten Royston are a very good side concord should be too much for them, wouldnt wish a trip Concord on my worst enemy. Nice fans but awful ground for the level of football at which they play.

Hamlet went down to bottom of the table Tonbridge Angels. 2600 turned up to see Tonbridge Nick it in the 84th minute, nice strike from about 25 yds finding the bottom corner.

†Hamlet get some amazing crowds, Town average around 1300 this season, given they are 2nd...Hamlet get double that!

I think there has been some growth in the fan base hopefully season ticket numbers next season will be closer to 900 from this seasons 600 but undoubtedly about 150- 200 are on a curiosity visit. Tonbridge brought plenty perhaps 150 and 300 or so turn up for a beer and a chat probably still dont know the score!

The NW Counties decided to put on a groundhog this weekend and it was very well supported.
They had a match on Friday night at Sandbach, a few matches around South Manchester on Saturday and then Congleton and Winsford on Sunday.

I've never been to one of these matches, but I decided to go to Congleton this morning.
There was a bumper crowd of almost 500 despite traffic issues in the town. Groundhoppers accounting for at least half the gate and they came from all over the country.
Decent game, plenty of goals and a nice club - another ground added to my list.

I understand there is a Scottish trip soon and an Easter set of fixtures based around the Hellenic league.
