Non-League Videos Of The Week 2: The Football Conference

We have two sets of non-league videos of the week lined up for you this week. Earlier this evening, we had a quick round-up of matches from the Third Qualifying Round of the FA Cup. Now, to follow that up, we have a quick round-up of two matches from the Blue Square Premier, followed by one match from the Blue Square South. Wrexham stayed top of the table with a comprehensive win against Stockport County at The Racecourse Ground, but there was plenty going on elsewhere in the division. Our first match is the match between AFC Telford United and Ebbsfleet United. Second up is the match between Barrow and Hayes & Yeading United. Our third match comes from the Blue Square South, and is the match between Welling United and Dorchester Town.

Non-League Videos Of The Week: The Blue Square Premier & The FA Cup

This weekend’s non-league videos of the week come from the Blue Square Premier and the Second Qualifying Round of the FA Cup. In the Blue Square Premier, AFC Telford United have reacted positively to their promotion from the Blue Square North at the end of last season and sit in mid-table in the division at present and they were at home against Hayes & Yeading United, who were the beneficiaries of Kettering Town’s generosity – and subsequent implosion on Tuesday night. Our second match from the Blue Square Premier is between two sides that have been in the news for different reasons over the last few weeks or months. The green revolution is apace at Forest Green Rovers, and they were at home on Saturday against Mansfield Town. The remainder of our matches for this evening all come from the FA Cup Second Qualifying Round. First up is the match between two teams with FA Cup pedigrees of their own – Blyth Spartans and Bedlington Terriers. Blyth still probably best known for their run to the Fifth Round of the competition in 1978, whilst Bedlington beat Colchester United by four goals to one in the First Round of the competition in 1998/99 before losing to Scunthorpe United in the next round. Coming up next is a Kent derby match between Bromley and Welling United, Redbridge and Bury Town, Dartford...

A Matter Of Trust: Some Supporter-Owned Highlights From 2011

It is the end, then, of another long, hard season, and perhaps now is an appropriate time to be looking at how those clubs that are owned and run by their supporters trusts this season managed to fair. As AFC Wimbledon paraded the trophy that confirmed their accession into the Football League nine years after their formation, the words of the FA’s committee, that a new club in the borough would be, “not in the wider interests of football”, have never sounded more hollow. Wimbledon, however, are just one of nineteen clubs in England, Scotland and Wales that are owned by supporters trusts, and they are not the only one of these to have had some degree of success this season. It is worth, then, taking a moment to reflect upon some of the other Supporters Trust-owned clubs that have had cause for celebration this season. Gretna FC 2008: Gretna FC were a prime example of how the sugar daddy model of football club ownership can fail. Funded by Brooks Mileson, the club rose swiftly through the ranks of Scottish football, played in the UEFA Cup and competed in the 2006 Scottish Cup final, where they only lost on penalties to Heart of Midlothian. However, promotion to the Scottish Premier League meant that the club had to abandon its home, Raydale Park, and play its home matches at Motherwell....
