    Ben Judge drove a free-kick across the six yard area and Ben Judge tapped it, unmarked at the far post.

    This seems improbable

    Tis indeed a good time to have a bit of good news about the successes of the trust movement. It is though a fact of life – and football supporters are no different in this respect – that people want success without the hardship. They want it and they want it NOW. Hence the passage of trust ownership away from the likes of Wycombe. If AFCW and FCUM do ultimately make it up into the lower echeleons of the Football League and maintain their trust status and ownership in tact then, and only then may other fans believe this is truly and alternative to the ‘one man owner with his boom and bust business plan!

    Cruel mistress indeed. Always nice to be reminded of the great Alan Latchley.

    Good article. One minor criticism. FCUM have enjoyed promotion in each of their seasons so far until last season (when, as the article states, they narrowly missed a play off spot. AFCW have been around longer and haven’t gained promotion every season either. Both teams have made great strides however with FCUM on track to gain Conference status in similar timescales to AFCW. One hopes that the supporters trust model will be retained as both clubs seek to rise further up the pyramid, unlike at Wycombe and Notts County where the silver lining that had been taken comes with a threatening cloud.
