Re: Darlington V Blyth

Been very tough on us losing 4 to injuries, 2 carrying knocks and now 2 away on international duty. We must surely be due so luck with injuries later on in the season. Likely to mean its basically the same team again from Saturday, with either Wheatley or Holness to come in at CM for Bascombe. No i...

Re: Players past/present

To think he made 10 appearances. Worst Goalkeeper: Ashlee Jones - Again in the disastrous league 2 season. Watchin...

Re: King’s Lynn

As I say all personal opinions. If you want to take the same players and call it 4-4-2 that's yours. I'd would say our system is 4-2-3-1. Its these opinions that make football interesting. 4-4-2 isn't my opinion, it's a fact. Yes we can play 4-2-3-1 (or 4-5-1 for us old non trendy fans) and that wa...

Despite a 10 game preseason Clark seems clueless as to who is his best eleven. Feel sorry for Spartans fans. Great non league club...

Awful treatment of volunteers by the league.

And keeping that connection has kept the money flowing in from me to the club. So thes...
