Have they scored any goals themselves?

Cracking result for Bromsgrove today, a 2-1 win at Peterborough Sports in front of 391 with about 275 traveling from the Grove. First team to take all 3 points from PS this season. Still a big ask to win the league though.

Great result for the O's today. Beat Wrexham and went back to the top.
It's very tight though at the top of the National League though and looks like it could be a very interesting finish to the season.

Just as long as it isn't Salford. The media fest would just be too much to live with.

I think a lot of non-league fans will have the same opinion as they did to Rushden & Diamonds - get them into the league, out of the way of the rest of us.

I see the new Carling Advert covers Black Country Fusion, one of the first LGBT teams officially around.

From The Non-League Paper on twitter
"Four years ago this month North Ferriby United won the FA Trophy at Wembley.

Today they have been wound-up in court over an unpaid debt of 7,645.25. 😔 https://t.co/uN1f4jeCvH"

That's awful news.  For the sake of seven grand.  Sky could have donated that out of petty cash, they purport to love football the game they invented.  I'm being flippant obv.  I had truly great times amongst genuine, unpaid stalwarts of the game in non-league football, men long gone whose clubs may not still exist without them.  So sorry North Ferriby.

I don't know much about the situation there and it may be that they got shafted by bad owners but most clubs that go out of business do so for one reason - they spent more than they had coming in. Yes, the amount they end up going under for might be small in comparison to the riches of the Premier League (although North Ferriby owe a lot more than seven grand in total) but the principle is the same. If a club spends what it hasn't got and does better than it should based on over-spending then it's got no right to say that its debts should be paid off by some benevolent force just because.

Thanks for the info Dave.  I do understand the economics but it does seem such a trifling sum (for football) although your point about that not being the only sum is relevant and ominous. 

My thoughts are with the unsung heroes of the club and the few regular supporters.  As I said, I love non-league football and I owe it such a lot.  I've had the pleasure of officiating at a good many non- league grounds throughout the Midlands in my time on the circuit.  Great clubs, great people and great fun. 

One of the things I miss about not living at home is the non-league clubs.  I was introduced early, my father played for Boldmere.

Could you not go League of Ireland games? I'd imagine the top flight is not far of Conference sort of standard, or am I doing the Irish a disservice?
