Non-League Videos Of The Week: Supporter-Owned Clubs Special

It’s a slightly different time for our non-league videos of the week, and this week we’re focussing on clubs that are owned by their supporters again. First up is the match from the Evostik League Premier Division between FC United of Manchester and Worksop Town. A couple of months ago, we could have been forgiven for thinking that FC United’s league season was grinding to a halt, but they have won seven of their last nine matches and now have an excellent chance of making the play-offs at the end of the season. Their opposition, Worksop Town, are in mid-table but with several games in hand on the teams above them will surely not have given up on their ambitions of making the play-offs either. In the Blue Square Premier, Wimbledon have come rather unstuck of late. They were at home against Kidderminster Harriers having won just one of their last four matches. They lost top place in the table to Crawley Town last week, but need to keep winning to sure up their chances of a play-off place. Kidderminster Harriers, meanwhile, found themselves deducted five points earlier in the season but still have ambitions of finishing in the play-off places themselves, although they have played more matches that the other clubs around them in the table. AFC Liverpool are in seventh place in the First Division of the...

Non-League Videos Of The Week: Blue Square Premier Special

This morning’s non-league videos of the week come from the Blue Square Bet Premier. Last weekend saw the quarter-finals of the FA Trophy, which involved a number of clubs from the fifth division, all of which left clubs that had already been eliminated from that particular competition to get on with the important job of accumulating points in the league. Our first match features Wimbledon and Altrincham. Wimbledon, to put it bluntly, need to keep winning now if they are to get anywhere near the top of the Blue Square Premier table by the end of the season. Their defeat at home against Wrexham during the week left Crawley Town firmly in the driving seat at the top of the table, just three points behind them but with five games in hand. Altrincham, meanwhile, remain firmly in the relegation places at the bottom of the table. Our second match features another club that are battling against relegation, Hayes & Yeading United, against a team chasing a place in the play-offs, York City. Hayes, with the lowest average home crowds in the league, were always going to face an uphill battle to stay in the Blue Square Premier and it is to their credit that they are still in touch with the others at the foot of the table and they currently sit one place above the bottom four in...

Non-League Videos Of The Week

For those of you viewing Twohundredpercent on our mobile site, you will be able to view this post better by clicking here. It’s time, then, to wind down with our weekly selections of non-league highlights from the last seven days. Our first match this evening comes from Twerton Park, and it’s the Blue Square Premier match between Bath City and Wimbledon. Wimbledon are still chasing a place in the Football League and needed three points from their trip to the west country from this match. Bath, however, may still harbour hopes of a place in the play-offs at the end of the season and provided a stiff test for the team that has spent much of the last few months at the top of the table. Our second match comes from the Premier Division of the Ryman League. Croydon Athletic have had about as dramatic a season as any team could possibly imagine, and are sitting near the foot of the table. They would have one of their most difficult matches of the season on Saturday against Bury Town, who are in second place in the table and are still chasing the coat-tails of the league leaders Sutton United. Our final match comes from the Premier Division of the Zamaretto League and is between Cambridge City and Brackley Town. Cambridge managed to get themselves an extension on their Milton...

Non-League Videos Of The Week

After a couple of weeks off, we’re bringing back our weekly round-up of non-league videos. Yesterday saw the Third Round of the FA Trophy, and our first two matches come from that competition, kicking off with AFC Wimbledon’s match against Woking. Wimbledon dropped two points against Luton Town during the week and were looking to regain a little momentum. Woking may be a division below Wimbledon, but they have won the FA Trophy three times and took Brighton & Hove Albion to a penalty-shoot-out in the First Round of the FA Cup. The second match, meanwhile, is the match between Ashford Town (Middlesex) of the Zamaretto League Division One Central and Dartford of the Blue Square South, a match which saw one of the biggest crowds in recent years at Ashford’s Short Lane. Our second two matches are both league matches. Sutton United are comfortably clear at the top of the Ryman League Premier Division, and they were at home at the weekend against Concord Rangers, who are one of the many sides chasing the play-off positions for a place in the Blue Square South. Our final match takes us to the First Division of the Combined Counties League and the match between Warlingham and the league leaders, Farnham Town. It’s a match that is well worth ten minutes of your time. As ever, our thanks go to those...

Non-League Videos Of The Week

This week’s non-league matches of the week come from a variety different competitions. As the weather started to return to something approaching normal, the a near-full schedule of matches was played, including matches in both the FA Trophy and postponed matches from the FA Vase. Our first match is the FA Trophy match between Wimbledon and Braintree Town. Wimbledon could be forgiven for considering the FA Trophy something of a distraction in comparison with what is looking like becoming a three-way tussle for the Blue Square Premier championship with Crawley Town and Luton Town, but the current Wimbledon club has only played at Wembley once before, to play what was effectively a friendly match there against Corinthian-Casuals in 2008. The FA Trophy, we might compose, would look rather nice in their trophy cabinet, come the end of the season. Their opponents are the Essex side Braintree Town, who are currently top of the Blue Square South and might fancy their chances against a team with other things on their mind. Our second match sees us at Gigg Lane for the Evostik League Premier Division between FC United of Manchester and FC Halifax Town. FC United’s FA Cup run came to an end during the week, and they have found themselves slipping into the relegation zone at the bottom of the league table, although they do still have games in...
