    Non League Football.

    We really should have had this thread ages ago. Which non league team do you look out for?

    For me it is Lincoln City and Nuneaton Town.

    The Red Imps have made a good start, but the "Boro" as they will always be known are struggling. Having checked I believe there are seven former football league teams in the National League North. That division is so competitive, but there again most non league divisions are like that.

    I counted five Frank but you may be correct.

    Tamworth have and always will be my non league side.

    Stafford Rangers & Hednesford Town.

    Also Salford. Mainly because of Gary Neville and their mental managers.

    If we're counting continuation clubs then the ex-Football League clubs in Conference North are:

    Darlington
    Kidderminster
    Halifax
    Stockport
    Gainsborough
    Boston
    Bradford Park Avenue

    I have a look out for Kidderminster, Telford and Stockport.

    Stourbridge.

    My 2nd team - always enjoy going to watch them and they've had a good few years. Would be great to see them make the play offs this season after being so close last time. Bloody Salford!

    Though it is many moons since Bradford and Gainsborough graced the Football league.

    Woking is my team as went there weekly in the 1980's & 90's when I couldn't afford time or money to come up to Wolverhampton (& still try to fit in a couple of games each season as have relatives in the area)

    Struggling this year, though as a semi pro team in what is effectively a fully pro league that's not surprising.

    What affects this most is who you can get on loan from league sides higher up the pyramid, though after a few decent years the current manager (Gary Hill) may be out of time.
    This year we will mainly be conquering Europe

    I still think that Stourbridge Standard were the first opponents of St Lukes, but I just cannot find definitive proof. Anyway that is for another thread.

    Yeah I remember us talking about that. Interesting stuff!

    I must try and get to a Glassboys game soon. Such a good occasion. Drinking a pint of Golden Glow on the terrace is ace, as is being able to leave my house 15 minutes before kick off and not miss any of the match!

    It was Gainsborough and Boston I didn't count. Boston were quite recent too!

    I used to go to Hinckley when I was free, but since the silly spat between the two Hinckley teams, I rarely go.

    Wolves have ambition and wit... why is it such a crime?

    They have an AFC version who have just been promoted to the Evo Stik Div 1 South (same level as Chasetown)

    Good idea for a thread. As I'm part of the coaching staff for their under 18s - I've been to quite a few games at Brockenhurst FC now - they play in the Sydenhams's Wessex Premier League. They have had a good start to the season and are in 4th position - promotion would take them to the Evo Stil Southern League (or whatever it is called now). It really is a different world!

    Similarly I was at Bath City for Non league day and again, just so different. EVERYONE Knows each other. You can stand where you want. You are so close to the action. It's quite refreshing having watched a lot of non league this season.

    Another one for Stourbridge. When I was younger I used to keep an eye on Kidderminster's exploits, but not so much now.

    I'm old enough to remember Rushden Town and Irthlingborough Diamonds! I think that it was the guy who owned Dr Martens Boots who brought the two together.
