Re: Promotion from Step 2

A few suggestions in random order 1. Every club should opt into this league - register team of players - who are fans etc - all volunteers - pay own travel expenses etc. The proposal could not run with 40+ teams taking part in time available! 2. Is this proposal even lawful? Promotion to the NL is o...

Scheduled 8th May, however as last seasons final is still outstanding it remains likely this seasons final will be delayed.

either way it will not affect you
Really? As I go to the Final every year fans are allowed I think it will

Re: Darlington V Hornchurch Trophy Quarter Final

Should we be good enough to reach the final and the Government Covid-19 escape plan hold water, then a real possibility fans will be watching live at Wembley. At present final is on 6 May, but fans not allowed back until 17 May I wonder if these dates will change. The Trophy Finals seem to be good ...

Re: Darlington V Hornchurch Trophy Quarter Final

Understand Premier league West Ham owner is funding their stay in Darlington on Friday night to better prepare which is generous of them. I would like to see Hedley keep his place ahead of Mcmahon and keep Omar in from the start Sullivan has donated £500 to the costs https://www.whufc.com/news/arti...

Re: Darlington V Hornchurch Trophy Quarter Final

Hornchurch manager Mark Stimson won the Trophy as a player.

Then won it 3 years running as a manager with Grays & Stevenage.

Not surprising they have had a decent run in Trophy, he like Alun Armstrong can obviously get sides up for big cup games

Re: DFC Voted for League to be Null & Void

The National League are now saying that an "independent panel", not a "sub-committee", will be appointed to hear each case. So that is already a climb-down from their initial correspondence to clubs within the last 24/48 hours. The cases will be not be heard until the results of the resolution are ...

Hope Boris takes this opportunity to level up by appointing someone from the North to replace Jim Parmentier, who was obviously cheesed off.
