I don't recall the name at all, when did he play his 2 games for us?
1969/70.

Ian Larnach RIP

Another former player has passed away. I have to confess his name wasn't familiar to me but as he played just two games, the season before I was born that's hardly surprising. Went on to play for South Shields and Spennymoor. Interestingly, after his playing career ended, and after a spell managing ...

Re: Peter skipper

I watched him play in that team. Billy Elliot managed to get a half-decent side going after a decade of middling to poor stuff. There was an epic full-house beating of Pools on boxing day 1980 and a definite hint of promotion that season but the club had to sell him - to Hull - and Speedie of cours...

Re: Peter skipper

Sad to hear one of our legends of the early 1980s has passed away I'm sure he was team captain if my memory serves me right around the time of our financial woes in 1982 - r.i.p Peter. That is sad. One of my heroes from when I first started going to Feethams as a 10/11 year old. Smudger, Speedie, a...

Re: Darlington V Bradford PA

Release clauses aside, wasn't there some issue around the timing of the approach and how MG went about it as well? Aren’t clubs supposed to go through the other club’s chairman/board to get permission to speak to a manager? According to MG he was contacted by YCFC first and only then met Tempest an...

I was disappointed with the Bradford PA support. If we'd been in their position and we'd been playing at Bradford PA, how many fans would we have taken? I'd like to think 700 perhaps 800.
Yes, we would, but that's irrelevant to BPA's following. Their average home gate looks to be about 500, Pete.

Exactly, sounds like we played really well, against what was a team in form. Can't wait for the highlights.

So if, say, Kings Lynn won the play off it would be even more skewed.
Why? KL is further north than Oxford, Gloucester, or Braintree (or have I misunderstood your point?)

Re: Officially safe

I mean, we only need Ashton to slip up once. It will happen, and even if it doesn't, they're more likely to overtake Guiseley anyway. For us to go down Ashton have to win every one of their last four games (Guiseley a, Chester h, Boston a, Altrincham h) and hope we don't get one more win; or win th...

Good job they had a good Jan and Feb, cos they've been woeful in March and April (five points from 24). That earlier form should be enough to keep them in the p/offs.
