Non-League Videos Of The Week

Well, it’s late on Sunday night so it’s time to catch up on some more non-league videos of the week for this weekend. Our first match comes from the relegation battle at the bottom of the Blue Square Premier. With four relegation places, it’s pretty tight at the foot of the table and Hayes & Yeading United occupied one of those positions at the start of the match. They were at home yesterday afternoon against Kettering Town, who sit in the places just above the relegation places and could probably still do with a win or two just to guarantee their safety for next season. Our second match is from the Blue Square North and has a hint of the local derby about it. AFC Telford United are still chasing promotion to the Blue Square Premier at the end of this season and a win at mid-table Worcester City could put them top of the table with games in hand on the two club immediately below them in the table, Boston United and Nuneaton Town, although it is fourth-placed Alfreton Town, who have games in hand on all of the other clubs at the top of the table, that they will perhaps be looking at as their biggest rivals for the league title. Finally, we’re off to Scotland to the West of Scotland Super League First Division, for the...

Midweek Non-League Video Special

The pressures of the outside world don’t often often intrude into the world of Twohundredpercent, but they have this evening and our normal service has been slightly interrupted. Everything will be back to normal with a fresh Mungo tomorrow morning, but for tonight we’re going to leave you with a handful more non-league videos from the last couple of days. Last night was a big night in non-league football, with matches the length and breadth of the country, and our first match is the Blue Square South match between Dartford and Eastleigh. With Eastleigh in the pack chasing a play-off place, this was an important match. Our second match comes from the top of the Ryman League Premier Division. Bury Town are in the pack chasing leaders Sutton United, and a win last night against mid-table Margate would help them close the gap on the leaders. With Sutton not having a game last night, a win would reduce Sutton’s lead at the top of the table to six points, with Bury still having a game in hand. Our third match is from the Blue Square North, where Monday night’s match between Hyde FC and AFC Telford United affected both ends of the league table, with Hyde being just above the relegation places and Telford still being in the play-off places and with a chance of still snatching the championship...

Non-League Videos Of The Week: Supporter-owned Club Special

If you are viewing this post from the mobile version of our site, you may be able to view it better by clicking here. This week’s Non-league videos have a running theme in that they all feature clubs that are owned by their supporters, and clubs that we are featuring this evening not necessarily those that get the most attention in the press. Our first match comes from the top of a very tight looking Blue Square North. Nuneaton Town are clear at the top of the table, but all of the teams below them have games in hand upon them. AFC Telford United have been knocking on the door of a place in the Blue Square Premier for several seasons, while Boston United are looking to reclaim the place there that they lost through demotion. The two clubs met yesterday afternoon at Boston’s York Street. Another supporter-owned team chasing promotion are Cambridge City of the Zamaretto League Premier Division. They are in the play-off positions and have games in hand on the league’s leaders, Truro City, and yesterday they were at home against Hednesford Town, who are still in the chasing pack for a play-off place themselves. Our third match comes from Scotland, where Clydebank had the chance to go to the top of the Scottish Junior Football West Division One yesterday afternoon. The club was formed in...

Non-League Videos Of The Week: 6th February 2011

For those of you viewing Twohundredpercent on our mobile site, you will be able to view this post better by clicking here. It’s time again for our weekly round-up of non-league videos, which this week focusses on the last sixteen of this year’s FA Trophy. Although some of the gloss from this competition may have been lost as the Blue Square Premier has come to be the behemoth of the non-league game, there is still a lot to play for with a place at Wembley at stake – these are days out that players, supporters and staff don’t forget in a hurry and the winners of this weekend’s matches will find themselves just three matches from a trip there. Our first match is yesterday’s match between AFC Telford United and Darlington. During their previous one season in non-league football – the 1989/90 season – Darlington made the quarter-finals of the FA Trophy before losing to Leek Town. They went on to win promotion straight back into the Football League before losing this status again at the end of last season and, although they currently have games in hand on the teams above them, making the BSP play-offs this season seems as if it will be a tall order. The FA Trophy, therefore, may be their best chance of success at the end of a transitional season. AFC Telford United,...

Not A Terribly Happy New Year At Nuneaton or Tilbury

It only took two days for a familiar old boil that has never been properly lanced to rear its head in non-league football this year, as crowd trouble marred two non-league matches afternoon. These incidents occurred at Liberty Way, at the Blue Square North match between Nuneaton Town and AFC Telford United, and at the Ryman League match between Tilbury and Grays Athletic. Both matches were local derbies to some extent, so perhaps the question that we ought to be asking is of whether high-tension matches should be played on Bank Holiday weekends. It is a question that has been asked before – there was serious disorder at the end of last year’s Blue Square Premier match between Luton Town and York City, which was played on a Bank Holiday Monday – but perhaps the question has become one of whether they can afford not to. At Nuneaton, the trouble was serious enough to have potential ramifications for the club itself in the form of a fine. Perhaps surprisingly, it seems that there were no police present at the match, only stewards presumably hired by the club itself, and the lion’s share of the trouble came at the end of the match after Telford supporters were held back, allowed to leave and then chased back into the ground by people purporting to be home supporters. A supporters coach was...
