Coleshill win 1-0, not surprised in the slightest.

Sounded a bit tasty from the Coleshill twitter updates.

Coleshill took their allocation apparently so are either of you going? I think £12 is a bit of a pisstake tbh, it's one of the reasons I don't go any more.

I'm down in London these days, so only get to the odd Coleshill game if I'm back home and not going to Villa. Fisher FC down here charge £8 for Tier 9, which seems more than reasonable.

Paget Rangers 0-4 Radford in the Vase.

The Dohl Drummers that welcomed the teams was probably the highlight of a one sided afternoon reffed by a Children Catcher lookalike who brandished his cards like he was drinking tea from a china cup.

Just after the Wolves game was moved so I could get to a 3pm kick off at Fisher FC on December 12th, the Southern Counties South East League has cancelled all games this side of Christmas. Half the division in tier 2 (like here in Southwark), half in tier 3.

Only realistic decision they could take.
It might get a bit interesting as some clubs are invited to go up a level, filling in for the holes left by clubs folding.

Not really, when take as a whole the “elite” level National League clubs (National League plus North and South) vote was split evenly. For clubs unable to complete their fixture then ok drop out but why stop the other clubs from continuing and having the chance of promotion, like in any other season?

Changing the rules half way through a season is wrong.
Allowing teams to be able to void a season sets the wrong precedent - towards the end of most seasons the majority won’t be able to get promotion so could just decide to void and avoid relegation.
The clubs who voted against carrying on because they couldn’t afford it are, in many cases continuing to compete in the FA Trophy the massive hypocrites.

It’s a farce.

Hardly. Cup games come with prize money, league games don't.

There's talk in the London and South East leagues of trying to replace what would have been the last few weeks of the league season with a cup competition. But there's just not the appetite for it when clubs wouldn't be able to have spectators and open clubhouses. Big difference for a team like Fisher FC (my local side), who previously were able to have up to 400 fans and the clubhouse selling refreshments when we were in tier 2, versus the proposed 'roadmap' out of lockdown, which doesn't make any provision for non-elite sport to have fans in, even at a time when league teams can have up to 10,000.
