Podcast 226: Strength in Depth – A History of Non-League Football, Part 6

by | Oct 17, 2020

After a two week diversion into the FA Cup and the FA Amateur Cup, this week’s episode of Strength In Depth takes us back to 1946. There was an attendance boom waiting for football following the end of the Second World War, but the amateur game took up most of the non-league game’s attention as crowds grew and grew. The professional non-league game was going to change, especially in the north of England. This week’s podcast tells the story of the creation of the Northern Premier League, the FA Trophy and, eventually, the Alliance Premier League.
