    Boring vics story again. The club is dead, they never pay and the owner will not give up control. Sound like the original Runcorn anyone? Even a new reformed club is going to struggle with all the splits in the fan base, the low level of football and the resurgence of Witton(494 saw them beat Blyth on Saturday). Next season could see a vics, villa and a trust 2012 team featuring the northwich name. This is a town that has said for years that it can’t support two teams! All this is doing is dividing everyone and further harming the name (I nearly said brand but that died a long time ago). If the main club continues and I am sure it will no new team or reformed team will progress no matter the level of backing. A slow painful death until villa passes vics in the leagues I think

    A word too for Maidstone Utd’s return to their hometown since their nomadic existance began after reforming in 1992.
    Their debut Ryman L1 South league game at the new Gallagher Stadium attracted an amazing 1569, with an amazing 4-5 score to match.
    I went there for a friendly a few weeks ago and the enthusiasm and interest was palpable. A town with lots of fans of Premier and league teams who seem keen to embrace a local side in a tidy town centre ground wih reasonable prices.
    Hope the novelty doesn’t wear off for them too soon
