The Twohundredpercent Pre-Season Predictions: Conference North

Last year was pretty clear cut in the Conference North, Alfreton were pretty much definitely going up despite having a ridiculous backlog of games, the play-off places were fairly clear early on and Redditch were dropping like a stone from around February time, but this season it looks set to be a bit closer at both ends of the table and closer still in the middle. Along with relegated Altrincham and Histon there are the promoted pair of Colwyn Bay and FC Halifax, and the 22nd most northern team at Step 2 – Bishop’s Stortford, shifted over the north/south divide in the fall-out from Rushden and Diamonds’ demise.

Non-League Videos Of The Week

We have got four matches for you as our non-league videos of the week selection tonight.

Woking, meanwhile much improved under new manager Garry Hill and are now up to eighth place in the table. Our second match comes from the Blue Square North, and is a match between another two clubs around or about the play-off places, Blyth Spartans and Solihull Moors. Solihull are in fifth place – the last play-off spot, with Blyth just below them. Blyth, however, go into this match four points behind Solihull and desperately need three points to close the gap on their opponents in the league. We have mentioned before on this site how tight the top half of the Ryman League Premier Division is this season, and the next match up is between two teams at either end of that particular rat run. Tonbridge Angels are in fourth place in the league. They’re eleven points behind the leaders Sutton United, but only eight points ahead of Canvey Island, down in tenth place in the table. They met each other in a league match last Tuesday night. Finally,...
