Non-League Videos Of The Week: 22-04-2012

It’s the penultimate week of the non-league season, and while most of the championship issues have now been resolved there are still relegation places to be filled at the bottom of many of the tables. We’ve got a mixture of the top and the bottom of the tables for you this evening, kicking off with the bottom of the Blue Square Premier. The relegation places are already decided, but AFC Telford United went into their final home match of the season looking to boost their league position with a win against Grimsby Town, while Newport County prepared for their forthcoming FA Trophy final with a home match against Alfreton Town and Forest Green Rovers played already relegated Darlington. In the Blue Square Bet South, meanwhile, champions Woking were at home against Truro City, whilst at the bottom of the table Farnborough and Havant & Waterlooville both went into their match at Cherrywood Road needing a win to avoid relegation from the division. Finally, we’re off to the Southern League Premier Division, where Weymouth needed a win against Hitching Town in order to guarantee avoiding relegation themselves.

Truro vs The Taxman: A Happy Ending?

Shortly before 12.30pm today @TruroCityTweet declared ‘ALL CLEAR FOR CITY -TAX BILL PAID IN FULL’ (their capitals not mine but worthy of shouting nonetheless) and it seemed in light of the current cloud of doom hanging over parts of non-league that the sun has broken through over Cornwall at least. That Truro, subject of a winding up order way back in September, have found the money to pay HMRC in full (and it is rumoured this was a fair wedge, a six-figure sum and certainly not the amount you find knocking about down the back of the sofa) is a positive sign that the southern-most club at Step 2 is starting to move in the right direction. It went down to the wire though, two hours before a winding up hearing was due at the High Court the club informed HMRC that the debt had been paid in full. The winding up hearing will now be dismissed at the end of the month providing the payment goes through and HMRC are satisfied. Buoyant chairman Kevin Heaney told This Is Cornwall it was time to put the financial problems behind the club and move on. He said: “So from now on it is business as usual, with team strengthening and our continued commitment to the Stadium for Cornwall project.  We will now be seeking to have the League’s transfer embargo...

A Winding Up Order For Truro City

The London Gazette can be a treasure trove of information. The official journal record of the British government contains years and years of official information and one notice, published yesterday, really caught the eye – a winding up order issued against Truro City Football Club Limited. This story, which may yet end up turning out to be a case of much ado about nothing – specific details regarding the amount owed are somewhat thin on the ground at present – will be of particular interest to the supporters of Plymouth Argyle, of course, since the club’s owner, Kevin Heaney, has been at the centre of what is increasingly looking like a failed bid to buy Plymouth’s Home Park, with the former Leeds United chairman Peter Ridsdale being set to take over the running of the club. Perhaps the question that supporters of both Plymouth and Truro will be asking today is that of whether Heaney’s money, which has propelled Truro up from the South-Western League to the Blue Square South over the last few years, has run out, or whether there is more to this story than meets the eye. There was a time when the story of Truro City might have been regarded by some – or even many, perhaps – as a fairytale, but the days of most neutrals standing back and passively admiring the noblesse oblige...

Non-League Videos Of The Week: 14/08/2011

The non-league season – the Isthmian League aside – started yesterday, and we’re delighted to be able to bring you highlights of four matches this evening, one from the Blue Square Premier, two from the Blue Square South and one from the Premier Division of the Southern League. The first match is between Hayes & Yeading United and Alfreton Town. Hayes & Yeading are starting a season in exile at Woking, having sold their Church Road ground without the former home of Yeading, The Warren, and the problems that they may face were placed into sharp focus by the fact that a crowd of just 262 people turned out for this match yesterday. A decade ago, Alfreton Town were beginning a season that would see them win the Northern Counties East League. Yesterday, they were playing their first match as a Blue Square Premier club. Our second match is from the Blue Square South, and is between Chelmsford City and Truro City. Chelmsford have been beaten in the semi-finals in the play-offs for the last three seasons, and will start this season with expectations of going one better than that this time around. Four years ago, meanwhile, Truro City were in the Premier Division of the Western League, but they start this season one step away from football’s fifth division, and optimistic of going higher than that themselves. We’re...
