The Twohundredpercent Pre-Season Predictions: Conference North

Twohundredpercent at related • 2 views

Last year was pretty clear cut in the Conference North, Alfreton were pretty much definitely going up despite having a ridiculous backlog of games, the play-off places were fairly clear early on and Redditch were dropping like a stone from around February time, but this season it looks set to be a bit closer at both ends of the table and closer still in the middle.

When is Worcester further south than Gloucester? When did Bishops Stortford become a northern town? How is it right for a part-time football team to travel 8,000 miles a season?

Glittering past successes for the Diamonds

Yesterday Rushden and Diamonds FC were officially expelled from the Conference, marking probably the darkest day in the very short history of many fans second favourite team (if not just for their unique name). Struggling with debts of nearly a million pounds, and having been docked five points last month for unpaid tax payments, the club now face a winding-up hearing on Monday, whilst also now having to plan for a very uncertain future, having admitted they could not guarantee being able to fulfil next season's fixtures.
