    The italian thing beggars belief. All football fans i know were fully in favour of the “draconian” punishments. I wonder how long before we have an “appeal fixing” scandal.

    I’m not sure you can say Derry play in the FLI for sectarian reasons – so much as they maybe arguably don’t play in the IFL for sectarian reasons.

    They played in the north until the early 70s, when all the other teams decided they were not prepared to play in Londonderry/Derry anymore.

    They played all their home games away for a couple of years before deciding – understandably, if you ask me – just to pack it in.

    Something like 10-12 years passed before they reformed and applied to join the FLI.

    Curiously enough, they’ll be playing Gretna – previously of the English Northern Premier League First Division – soon.
