Non-League Videos Of The Week: Supporter-Owned Clubs Special

1 By Ian  |   The Ball  |   March 14, 2011  |     11

It’s a slightly different time for our non-league videos of the week, and this week we’re focussing on clubs that are owned by their supporters again. First up is the match from the Evostik League Premier Division between FC United of Manchester and Worksop Town. A couple of months ago, we could have been forgiven for thinking that FC United’s league season was grinding to a halt, but they have won seven of their last nine matches and now have an excellent chance of making the play-offs at the end of the season. Their opposition, Worksop Town, are in mid-table but with several games in hand on the teams above them will surely not have given up on their ambitions of making the play-offs either.

In the Blue Square Premier, Wimbledon have come rather unstuck of late. They were at home against Kidderminster Harriers having won just one of their last four matches. They lost top place in the table to Crawley Town last week, but need to keep winning to sure up their chances of a play-off place. Kidderminster Harriers, meanwhile, found themselves deducted five points earlier in the season but still have ambitions of finishing in the play-off places themselves, although they have played more matches that the other clubs around them in the table.

AFC Liverpool are in seventh place in the First Division of the Vodkat North-West Counties League at present. Promotion may be slipping away from them, but they had a chance for three points on Saturday afternoon with a home match against bottom of the table Rochdale Town.
