Non-League Videos Of The Week: 25-09-2011

This week’s non-league videos of the week come from a variety of different competitions, including the Second Qualifying Round of the FA Vase. First up, though, is the match between Cambridge City and Banbury United in the Southern League Premier Division. Cambridge were beaten in the play-offs in this league last season, and are hoping to go one better than that this this season, whilst Banbury United are are hoping to challenge for the championship themselves. Our second match comes from Division One North of the Northern Premier League and is between Garforth Town, who have made an indifferent start to the season, and another side sitting just above the relegation places, Warrington Town. Our third match is the match between Enfield Town and Cheshunt in Division One North of the Ryman League, a home match for Enfield which was played, because their new ground isn’t quite ready yet, at Cheshunt. Finally, in the FA Vase, we have the match between two sides from Division Two of the Northern League, Hebburn Town and Brandon United. Our thanks, as ever, go those that take the trouble to record, edit and upload these matches.         You can follow Twohundredpercent on Twitter...

Non-League Videos Of The Week

We have a lot of videos to get through for this week’s non-league videos of the week, as the non-league season comes to an end and the end of season play-offs begin. First up, comes a match from the race for the play-off places in the Blue Square South. With Braintree Town already promoted to the Blue Square Premier as champions of the division, most eyes on the last day of the season turned to the question of who will be joining them. Chelmsford City have been hanging around the play-off places for most of the season, and they went into their final league match of the season knowing that a win would guarantee them a place in the Blue Square South play-offs. They were at home against a Hampton & Richmond Borough side that have spent much of their season just above the relegation places and who went into Saturday’s match already safe in the knowledge that they were just about already safe.   The Blue Square South play-off semi-finals will, therefore, be between Farnborough FC and Woking, while Chelmsford City will travel to Ebbsfleet United in the other match. In the Premier Division of the Ryman League, meanwhile, a similar situation had arisen. Sutton United had been crowned as the champions of the division several weeks ago, but the race for the play-off places has been one...

How Would Paul Gascoigne’s Appointment At Garforth Not Be A Publicity Stunt?

Football management is an extraordinarily harsh business. Managers are judged in the harsh glare of the public eye, with debate over their shortcomings often being led by those that shout the loudest, regardless of whether those doing the shouting are right or not. Many people that we might have expected to be very effective managers have fallen at the first hurdle, and many of them have not been given a second chance. It feels extremely doubtful that the position of manager of a football club could be beneficial in any way for the wellbeing of an individual that has suffered from alcoholism or is understood to have mental health issues. None of these concerns seem to have been taken into consideration in the matter of the possible appointment of Paul Gascoigne to the managerial position at Northern Premier League club Garforth Town. Gascoigne’s imminent appointment was announced at the weekend (although at the time of writing nothing has yet been concerned), but it has been a taxing couple of days for those that have been trying to figure out any conceivable ways in which such an appointment could be beneficial for either the club or the player – unless, of course, we factor in money as being the prime consideration behind the recent rumours. The Garforth Town owner, Simon Clifford, has been here before. Clifford purchased the club in...
