Re: Fundraising Ideas

Turn a page in the program into a football pitch and then divide into yard squares. Sell each square or number of squares at £1 or more per square and put fans name on them for the season, (or initials if too small to see name). Between the goal posts, centre spot, and penalty spots cost double. No...

Re: Darlington V Hornchurch Trophy Quarter Final

He was red carded for violent conduct rather than being yellowed for aggressive attitude. The outcome woul...

Great news. The worst that the moaners can complain about now is having to wait until then to get told they are wrong.

In these games each side played a third game against the others in the bottom 6. 6-9 played 3 ho...

Struth, going back to the late 60's we had a string of clubs sack managers either before or after we beat them. I wonder if since that time any club has had as many similar instances as we have.

Where have the NL stated that the league will restart on 6th February?

It’s a difficult situation that’s for sure.
