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...

Non-League Videos Of The Week: 11-09-11

This week’s non-league videos of the week come from the top of the Blue Square South, the Southern League Division One South and West and the FA Vase. Our first two matches feature two clubs that have had an excellent start to the season in the Blue Square South. Dartford sit in the play-off places in the division, and they are at home against struggling Eastleigh, while leaders Welling United faced a long trip south-west for a tricky match against another team that has made an inconsistent start to the season, Dorchester Town. In the Southern League Division One South and West, meanwhile, struggling Wimborne made a trip to Paulton Rovers, and finally, in the north-east, Bedlington Terriers started their FA Case campaign with a match against Stokesley. Our most sincere thanks, as ever, go to those that go to the trouble of recording, editing and uploading these matches – four matches which contain no less than twenty-five goals.         You can follow Twohundredpercent on Twitter by clicking...

Throwing The Terriers A Bone: The Billionaire And Bedlington

Sometimes, providence can find its way to a football club by the most unusual routes. When the 488th richest man in the world, the 69 year old chairman of the Rich Products Corporation, Robert Rich Jr (a name which in itself may have sent some people off to checkon their calendar that it isn’t April Fools Day already) started tracing his family tree, it set in motion of sequence of events that may irrevocably change the fortunes of a football club in the First Division of the Northern League forever. Rich traced his heritage back to the Bedlington area of Northumberland, which in turn led to his wife buying him the Lordship of Bedlington. Rich has a keen interest in sport, which can be traced back to trials for the USA 1964 Ice Hockey team. Rich Food Products was passed to him from his father, who in 1945 created the world’s first non-dairy whipped topping (the most famous example of which in America is “Cool Whip”). Rich is also the owner of three baseball teams in the USA, so his sporting interest is undeniable, and his first investment in the club is a £30,000 electronic scoreboard that is being flown over to Northumberland from America. What, though, can he expect from his involvement with the Terriers? Like so many teams playing at the level at which they ply their...
