Non-League Videos Of The Week

This week’s non-league videos of the week come from the length and breadth of the country, and all feature teams at or near the top of their league table. AFC Telford United have been near the top of the Blue Square North for most of the season. It now looks, however, as if the actual title itself is going to Alfreton Town, who are clear at the top of the table with games in hand, but Telford still need to keep winning matches to keep their heads up for the play-offs. Their opposition on Saturday were Boston United. Boston are in third place in the table and also seem likely to be making an appearance in the play-offs this season. Our second match comes from the top of the Premier Division of the Combined Counties League, and is a real six-pointer between Chertsey Town and Camberley Town. Chertsey are top of the table, but Camberley went into the game just six points behind the home side, but with a game in hand. A win for them would open the title race wide open between these two clubs and second-placed Guildford City. Our third match features another club from the top of its division. Clydebank are at the top of the SJFA West Region Division One in Scotland, but again the top of the table is very tight. Clydebank are...

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...

Steve Evans: Football Manager. Convicted Criminal.

At Broadfield Stadium last night, Crawley Town beat Bath City in the Blue Square Premier to move up to seventh place in the table after four matches. A crowd of 1,252 people turned out to watch it – hardly, one might think, a ringing endorsement of the “Project Promotion” that the club has put in place since new owners decided that money was no object in buying the club a place in the Football League. Perhaps the people of Crawley aren’t quite as excited at the prospect of “Project Promotion” as those running the “project” might have hoped. Should they continue to win, the likelihood is that crowds will increase, but the wider reputation of Crawley Town remains low. There has been some degree of distaste at the way that the club has been throwing its money about, but even this has palled at the continuing involvement at Crawley Town of one of the biggest bête noires of  modern football: Steve Evans. Why, though, is Steve Evans so despised? It’s easy, from a distance, to assume that the ongoing antipathy towards Evans is an antipathy like any other. An abrasive “larger than life” character will always stir up negative emotions in the supporters of other clubs, but Evans seems to strike something baser – a raw nerve that provokes florid and colourful streams of abuse, something that makes others...

Notts County – The Morning After The Night Before

The dream that started at Notts County died today. After weeks of turbulence, many at Meadow Lane had been holding onto increasingly tenuous claims that big investment was coming into the club and the continuing presence there of Peter Trembling and Sven-Goran Eriksson.
