Non-League Videos Of The Week: 25-09-2011

This week’s non-league videos of the week come from a variety of different competitions, including the Second Qualifying Round of the FA Vase. First up, though, is the match between Cambridge City and Banbury United in the Southern League Premier Division. Cambridge were beaten in the play-offs in this league last season, and are hoping to go one better than that this this season, whilst Banbury United are are hoping to challenge for the championship themselves. Our second match comes from Division One North of the Northern Premier League and is between Garforth Town, who have made an indifferent start to the season, and another side sitting just above the relegation places, Warrington Town. Our third match is the match between Enfield Town and Cheshunt in Division One North of the Ryman League, a home match for Enfield which was played, because their new ground isn’t quite ready yet, at Cheshunt. Finally, in the FA Vase, we have the match between two sides from Division Two of the Northern League, Hebburn Town and Brandon United. Our thanks, as ever, go those that take the trouble to record, edit and upload these matches.         You can follow Twohundredpercent on Twitter...

As these things always seem to pan out with Wrexham, it was a week that left a sour taste in the mouth and more questions than answers at The Racecourse Ground. That Dean Saunders should have left Wrexham for Doncaster Rovers is, perhaps, no great surprise. Even if we are to set the problems that the club has been through of late to one side for a moment, a job offer from the Championship whilst managing a club in the Blue Square Premier is always likely to cause a manager to think twice about where his future might lay. Some have sought to spin the departure of Saunders as being a reaction to the email leaked several weeks ago which seemed to indicate a possibility of a degree of fractiousness between the Wrexham Supporters Trust board and the manager, but...
