    Although I applaud their ambition I’m not really sure how able they will be to attract bigger crowds with there being so many clubs in London.

    Unfortunately now the conference is like a 5th division in terms of structure (without the benefit of sky money). The league is littered with ex-league clubs who no longer spend a year waiting to re-enter the football league. Teams remaining full time and other clubs with league ambition paying full time wages the conference is no longer an option on a sat because the tickets have gone so high. I used to watch Altincham and Leigh RMI week in week out in the conference when it was something like £6 pound to get in and you didn’t think twice about the cost. now its in the £12-20 category (Leigh Genesis are bottom of the nw counties and they were a tenner to watch last year) and its just not an option

    The groundsharing deal at Woking has now been confirmed for next season, but with no end date specified. Currently, H&Y say a move in mid-season is the aim but we shall see…
    Am relieve that we’ve survived for another season in the Conference, that’s a great achievement. But I have mixed feelings about the way the move from Church Road has been handled, and what the future holds.

    They will pick up some fans from the area around Woking, from people who used to live in Hayes & Yeading but have moved away.

    I live in Guildford but grew up in Hayes. I for one will get along to Kingsfield to see them when I can.

    Come on you Ayes!!
