Non-League Videos Of The Week: 18-08-2012

The premier division of the Football Conference may have started last weekend, but this weekend is the one that we’re marking as the start of the new football season and the return of our non-league videos of the week. Tonight, we have four matches from four different divisions as clubs get back to competitive action after their summer break. Our first match comes from the Blue Square Bet South, and is the match between Dover Athletic and Farnborough FC. The home side ended last season two places and five points from the play-off places and will hoping to go one better this season, whilst Farnborough, having been deducted five points during the season for a breach of the Football Conferences financial rules, ended the season in sixteenth place in the table, just four points above the relegation places. Our second match comes from the Blue Square Bet North, and is the match between Altrincham, who also finished just outside the play-off places at the end of last season, and Brackley Town, who are playing at this level for the first time having won the Southern League Premier Division by eight points last season. Our third match is between Waltham Forest and Grays Athletic from Division One North of the Ryman League – with Grays being amongst the favourites for promotion from that division – and we finish off with...

We have five matches for you this evening, from the Blue Square Premier to Division One Central of the Southern League, and finishing off with the Premier Division of the Super League in Scotland.

Non-League Videos Of The Week: 20/08/2011

Well, all of the leagues have finally started. The Isthmian League caught up with the rest and started its competitive season this weekend, meaning that everyone has now started for the new season, and this evening two of our four matches come from this league. First up, though, we’re off to Surrey for Chertsey Town’s first match in Division One Central of the Southern League. Chertsey were promoted after finishing in second place in the Combined Counties League last season, after the champions, Guildford City, were unable to take up their promotion place because of ground issues. Slough Town, meanwhile, missed out in the semi-finals of the play-offs last season and will be hoping to go one better this season.   Our second match is from the Division One South of the Isthmian League. Maidstone United were relegated from the Premier Division of the League last season, and their first match of the new season was at “home” – their current temporary home is at Sittingbourne – against Whitehawk, the Brighton-based club that only missed out on promotion at the end of last season after losing the play-off final in this division against Leatherhead.   The third match is from Division One North of the Isthmian League, and is between Ilford and Enfield Town. Enfield, as regular readers of this site will already aware, will be moving to their...

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....

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...
