I'm delighted that South Shields aren't coming up. I'm sure don't buy the son will be delighted as well.

They'll be gutted with that. Big, expensive squad but sounds like something was missing when the chips were down and they didn't play well. No doubt they will be strengthening again to try to get Project EFL on track.

Is having more local teams in the same division not better for us, they may have more money than us, may be competing for the same players, but they would have brought a decent following and we would have took a decent up to Shields.

Having more local teams is more beneficial in my opinion

Generally I agree, but in South Shields case they would be too strong financially for us to compete with them, another season in the Evostick North won't do them any harm.

They’re not in the Evostik North. There isn’t even a division called that.

So if Warrington do get through the next game, what’s the story on them nowadays ? Anyone.

I do remember them at HP what a fiasco that was, those were the days :lol:

Would like one more local team in our league - namely Hartlepool :lol:
What will happen to Gateshead next season? Hope they keep going, otherwise if they went out the league, this would leave one space which would ripple down the pyramid. Having gone through the pain of administration and restarting, would not wish that on any team.

Cant see gateshead starting next season. With folk in charge so bad it would be best for all parties if they were wound up. On a brighter note well done warrington. I suspect there will be riots in south shields tonight and calls to sack the managers
I may not live in the north east anymore but i still support the north east teams

An extremely well run club by all accounts on the face of it. Paul Carden seems to have decent local contacts and seems to have a habit of picking players up who operate in Sunday league football in Liverpool. Such as last seasons top scorer Jamie McDonald (Kensington Fields), Ben Garrity (Oyster Martyrs) and Connor McCarthy (Allerton).

Carden is a professional ultimately, different proposition to what Reid was.

Could South Shields buy Gateshead for £1 as their owner stated he would put it up for sale (plus someone refunding his £200k bond with FA). What is to stop them buying the GFC name and rebadging but in National League, thus leapfrogging the NLN? FA really have to get a grip on club finances, not just in lower leagues but in the top ones too. Boro feel they have been shafted by teams finishing above them living way beyond their means, even looking at going to court to get someone to take action.

So it's Warrington v Kings Lynn. Selfishly, would like Kings Lynn as it's a near match for me. Also, they'll be less of a threat than Warrington. Warrington have to be big favourites though.

KL is easy to get to for London exiles too: direct train from King's X, 1hr 45mins.

So, it's only from Darlington that the journey takes three days and requires pack mule for at least part of the trek :D
