It has been a difficult summer for Northwich Victoria Football Club, two months of ongoing
rancour which remains seemingly destined to end in the eventual closure of a club that is two years
shy of celebrating its one hundred and fortieth anniversary but has been kicked from pillar to post
so much over the last ten years or so that it is difficult to imagine any scenario which doesn't
end with the club being put out of its misery as being very remote indeed.
It's almost the end of the non-league season, so we've got six matches from the tops and bottoms
of varying divisions for you this evening. At the top of the Blue Square Bet South, a win for
Woking at Maidenhead United would be enough to take the title back to Kingfield, while if they
failed Dartford could keep the title race going for another week if they could win at Sutton
The news, such as it is, from Northwich Victoria continues to baffle and perplex. The last time
we heard from this particular club, it was starting to sound as if the proverbial fat lady was
starting to clear her voice. With crowds already having dropped following their eviction from the
Victoria Stadium in January, it was announced on Friday afternoon that, from the start of next
season, the Vics will be sharing the Martson Road home of Stafford Rangers, more than forty miles
from Northwich's base in Cheshire.
