Oxford City FC versus Oxford City Football Club Incorporated

The Southern division of the National League might not necessarily be the sort of place where one would expect to find stories of financial intrigue and sexual impropriety, but recent events concerning a now former director of Oxford City Football Club may well be causing raised eyebrows at the game’s governing bodies in this country as the American Securities and Exchange Commission announced fraud charges and a court-ordered asset freeze against a man who was a director of the club until six days ago, one Thomas Guerriero. The Securities and Exchange Commission is the American government agency responsible for...

Didn’t We Have A Lovely Time, The Day We Went To… Bognor

“We hate Worthing and we hate Worthing, we hate Worthing and we hate Worthing, we hate Worthing and we hate Worthing,” they sing with enthusiasm bordering on glee, “we are the Worthing… haters.” I’m not offended. I’ve only lived in Worthing for four months, so they’re probably not singing about me personally. And perhaps even citizens of Worthing who may find themselves offended by being hated by a small proportion of the population of Bognor Regis should consider the fact that such a rivalry even remains remembered when the two towns’ football clubs are separated by a division in...

The AGM cup 2012 – Mystic Rhys predicts

It’s the end of the season, and York City have won the final playoff game to secure their return football league. Now, the process of positioning teams in various leagues will begin in a process jokingly referred to as the AGM Cup. Always controversial, the Football Conference AGM decides who gets placed into various leagues in the Conference system (Conference Premier, North & South). With teams struggling to make ends meet, and the ever shifting North/South borderline, the AGM does throw up a few surprises now and again. Although teams technically could be affected by the AGM (Hereford, Macclesfield Town, Woking, Hyde, Chester amongst others) are nigh on guaranteed to be in the leagues they were promoted from or relegated to, this article will look into those teams that’s future is a lot less certain. In this article, I will look to my crystal ball and attempt to predict Steps 1 and 2 of the non-league system next year. Although step 1 itself is fairly secure, step 2 is a lot less predictable. I will look at the big players in their AGM Cup and will attempt to predict which league they will play in next year. Darlington Although now a little more financially secure than they were when previous owner Raj Singh placed them into administration, thanks to the DFC 1883 group, the club has appeared to have...

The Twohundredpercent Pre-season Predictions: The Southern Premier League

The Southern Premier League has a new sponsor this year, the same one as its northern counterpart so make sure you don’t confuse the two. Helpful. Anyway, teamwise the biggest relief for those footballers who get car sick is that Truro have been promoted, so that’s one afternoon spent on the M5 looking at the back of caravans which teams and fans alike won’t have to endure. Salisbury are also gone, climbing back from whence they came with their giant budget and full-time players. Joining the league are AFC Totton and Frome, both know the league well and both have impressive squads for the coming season. Frome can even boast a current England captain among their ranks, speedy winger Luke Ballinger is also the skipper of the national Futsal team. He’s had experience in the Southern Prem and a brief outing in the Blue Square North with Gloucester City, like his teammate, defender Tom Evans. The little Somerset side have an experienced squad and a decent manager in the form of Darren Perrin. AFC Totton, with free scoring striker Mike Gosney, could power their way through the Southern Prem, along with the other new boys, Hitchin,  they are likely to be goal hungry and eyeing up the top end of the table. Cambridge City have been lurking around the top of the Southern Prem for a while now and are the favourites...
