Out of that whole Chippenham team I’d probably only take Joe Hanks back, just makes me wonder where we’d finish in the South? Is it that much weaker than the North that a team of essentially our cast offs can get to the playoff semi final?

The South has been poor apart from the top 2 this season. Dartford started the season strongly and I think they went odds on for the title, but once they started losing they struggled for form after that. Oxford look pretty average, Eastbourne looked very average when I saw them in the flesh somehow went on a winning run to get themselves in the play-offs and then went rubbish in the final weeks of the season. Even the teams who were in contention of the 7th place until late on like Dulwich and St Albans have been poor for ages and Havant seriously under performed. Beneath that it gets even worse.

Amazing that a team of our rejects are 2 games from the National League. They were 28/1 ahead of the game tonight to go up.

I've slways said we'd be better off In South. North has too many 'big' clubs.

But we struggled when we were in that division, maybe because we replaced our better players with worse ones but we struggled.

Or had the wrong manager. Look how much Cook turned our season around.

Our manager was poached by Hereford!

We might be better off in the South in terms of gaining promotion - but the real rub is when you go up to the next level, because you'll be facing 'big clubs' week in, week out. If you go up, you want to stay up and not be cannon fodder. Both Weymouth (NLS) and Kings Lynn (NLN) got promoted from to NL in 2020 and they're both now on their way back down.

I wonder how the records of clubs coming up compares between the North and South?

*Cough…….Darran….

Sticking around a while yet, thanks to a gift from a generous angel.
