Think maybe we need to bring this back because there must be some who love to watch and follow a Non League club, so does anyone here watch or follow a Non League team?
I'm a Bristol City fan but watch Bristol Manor Farm on a semi regular basis.
Their currently in their first ever season at Southern League Division One West, having won the Western League Premier at a canter last season.
First went to watch them about 15 years ago and they were battling relegation from the Western Premier.
Their tactics last season was literally "score as many as possible, forget defending", they've done the same since promotion and sit in a playoff spot, but the difference in quality between the two leagues is very clear.
Used to watch Mangotsfield (same division) and Hallen (a Western Premier) as well, all depending on who was home and whether I could afford to go to Ashton Gate instead.
Tranmere and Boreham Wood battle for the right to get in the Football League. In the North Final it is Brackley vs Harrogate Town and in the South it is Hampton & Richmond v Braintree.
How about that then...Tranmere with the highest average attendance in the league will face the lowest average attendance team in the league, Boreham Wood.
I remember last season quite a few National League fans moaned about the lack of fans Forest Green Rovers took to the final, and their league attendance was something like an average attendance of over 1500ish, so I wonder how many Boreham Wood might take.
There seems to be a pattern over the past few seasons with the play off finals though - 2015 Grimsby were runners up but then went up the following season vs FGR in 2016. Then in 2017 FGR were in the final again and beat Tranmere. So now Tranmere are in the final for the second year running so if that pattern is anything to go by then you'd have your money on Tranmere.
Personally for me Tranmere deserve to get out of this league, especially going by form and performances over the second half of this season, but it would be crazy if Boreham Wood go up, plus with Macclesfield and Chester not in the league next season we need Tranmere so we can still have some sort of local derby.
If Boreham Wood make it then a lot of people will probably be saying 'where'. It is just outside London and about half a mile from the Eastenders set.
Tranmere have had a player sent off after 55 seconds! Yet they are 1-0 up. Could be an interesting second half. Pity it was £41 to go as if it had been a reasonable price I would have gone.
Did anyone catch the FA Trophy game between Brackley Town and Bromley today? You've got to feel for Bromley with conceding that own goal in the 94th minute. Great for Brackley though after their disappointment of missing out on promotion to the NL, and although it ended on a not so nice note between Wrexham and Kevin Wilkin, it was nice to see him actually win the FA Trophy after missing out on penalties a couple of seasons ago when we played in the final.
Big shock in the FA Trophy was National League side Aldershot getting beat 7-0 by Bedford Town who are 3 leagues lower than them!
