So now we know the last 2 members of the next seasons National League It makes for an interesting full line up: Barnet Barrow Borehamwood Bromley Chesterfield Chorley Dagenham & Redbridge Dover Eastleigh Ebbsfleet Fylde Gateshead Halifax Harrogate Hartlepool Maidenhead Notts County Solihull Stockport Sutton U Torquay Woking Wrexham Yeovil
I suppose the only question is will Gateshead make the start in August given their financial difficulties I think we can compete against these teams and predict we will finish in the top 8, but I do think its likely to be Notts Co who lead the way 11 ex league clubs and Gateshead (in a different guise ) have played in the Football League Roll on August
crikey. that's an away travel unfriendly shocker. i don't much like the b's. or the d's. or the e's. etc.
Having read last Sunday's Non League paper - it looks like Ebbsfleet may well be in financial meltdown as well, so we might get shot of an E and a G before the season starts - but hopefully not, I never like to see clubs struggle financially due to owners who really don't give a damn and its a toy for them to do what they like with and stuff the fans (never mind the staff and players).

Brighton away on New year's Day I seem to remember was shortly after a season with Torquay away on Boxing Day, and under police advice it kicked off at 1130am - correct me if I am wrong, with something daft like 8 County fans there!
I was at Hereford one year on a Tuesday night where there were 13 of us in the away pen with 8 police officers and a dog. My mate and I were escorted the length of the pitch and out to the car park, and only when we drove off did the officer turn and leave us - was he there to protect us or stop us - I don't know
me too, but i'm still also slightly rancorous about them playing at seven or eight different grounds as their home ground, miles away from gateshead (our clash at hartlepool was one of the closer ones) when we were last in the conference, and then them taking the point that all but doomed us on the tuesday night before kidderminster away on the saturday.
