AFC Fylde.
#1

AFC Fylde are in the National League North for the 2020/21 Season. Went to the Mill Farm Stadium the last time we played them in the league. Went into the bar before the game, impressive. They had a few TV's positioned in various places. I believe they did various meals, alright if you get to the bar early.
      We then had to get a ticket from the Ticket Office. Bought an Adult Ticket (Away End ticket), then went through the Away End turnstile. The away end was not segregated. First impressions, the ground looked impressive. Liked the Main Seated stand, it had a strange roof, it seemed to be positioned quite high above the seats. It looked as if it would offer little protection from the rain. 
      During the first half, a group of people (believe they were not AFC Fylde supporters) were in the same stand as GCAFC supporters causing trouble. After a while, noticed that the ground had no perimeter wall around the pitch. When the ball went out of play, it would keep rolling into the spectator area. Isn't this a Stadium Safety Issue? Easy enough for supporters to get onto the pitch. If New Meadow Park went into the season with no perimeter wall, the National League might look at it differently knowing our luck.
      The game itself was good. We got a 2-2 Draw. Think Craig Reid and Joe Parker scored the goals. Believe that AFC Fylde have a target of being in the Football League for 2022? A backward step at the moment. Need two successive Promotions.

As massive hangover from losing the play off final the previous season to relegation. The goals from Danny Rowe dried up last year and he moved into league with Oldham. As you say, back to back promotions now required to achieve the 2022 ambition

They were banned Huddersfield fans and well known for causing trouble at England away games

Something wasn’t right there. I’d heard the chairman was cutting back on the cash and Rowe looked so disinterested he clearly just wanted to leave.
