    Twitter updates + ting

    Didn't want to make a whole thread about this, but whatever: 1FF Hivemind, what's the best way of getting live scores from your league of choice on a match day? I've been following individual clubs' Twitter accounts for a few years now, but am finding I'm using up to half a month's data for 90...

    Mill Farm - AFC Flyde

    How Easy Was The Ground to Get To (from the station, by car, etc) Very. Just off the M55 J3 on your left. Going up from Wesham the main stand sticks out from a distance. If Applicable, How is Parking Near The Ground? Car park in the ground costs £5. The Aldi supermarket next door is sniffy and...

    Holker Street - Barrow AFC Ground Guide

    How Easy Was The Ground to Get To (from the station, by car, etc) By car it's M6 J35/36, connecting onto the A590 and you simply keep on the A590 until it comes up on your left (you just enter the town properly and the coast is to your right). A larger ground, also blue, comes up on that road...

    Kits 2016/17

    It seems like, for the first time, we're leading the way on releasing our replica shirts for next season. In our reformation season of 2008/09 we wore a badgeless, plain blue kit until late November. Until recently, our new kits have only emerged when the league season has, but now we're taking...

    The Weaver "Stadium" - Nantwich Town FC Ground Guide

    How Easy Was The Ground to Get To (from the station, by car, etc) West end of town. You'll probably be getting off J16/17 of the M6 via Crewe on the way there, and it's on your right off the B5341 that weaves (no pun intended) around the town. It's a small place that you can get round within a...

    FAO Grimsby lot

    You're being given the Skircoat Stand and North Stand on Saturday. The Skircoat is the old seater stand with the pitched roof and the North is the large terrace, would hold 4,000 if it had adequate bogs. The only two soccerball franchises that have been given this privilege since the ground was...

    Guiseley ground improvements

    From our forum: "Leeds Council ordered them to stop their Ground improvements which need to be completed by end of March to comply with Conference regulations. Face relegation if not completed. Is this Alty's annual AGM reprieve ?" Anyone know what's going on here? I've heard Mid Sussex are...

    Well done Wrexham

I am very pleased to say our bucket outside the Skircoat Stand today had £330.57 in it by kick-off. Money donated...

    The Fowk Thread

    Thread for folk music. Folk from anywhere on earth. Local stylings, local lore. Folk is strictly defined as music passed on by oral tradition. I'll fail to be a douche just this once and accept anything that simply sounds folk. Just no acoustic covers of Clocks like what I heard tonight please...

    Meadow Park - Boreham Wood FC Ground Guide

    How Easy Was The Ground to Get To (from the station, by car, etc) Easy by car. Get off the A1 at Borehamwood, get past a few roundabouts and it's on your right just before you enter the main drag. If Applicable, How is Parking Near The Ground? The little parking you get at the ground costs a...

    The Shay - Halifax Town Ground Guide

    How Easy Is The Ground to Get To: By car, you'll probably be taking Junction 24 off the M62, taking the A629 exit due north off the main roundabout and following that for a few miles until you reach Halifax town centre and the Shay on your right. Not the easiest, nowhere near the hardest. By...

    Most attractive/least attractive fixtures

    Saw two of these threads on the League One forum, merged them together to save a few kb in these troubled times, and plonked it into the non-league forum. Should be interesting to see what fans here class as attractive given how hodgepodge sides often are at this level. For Halifax Town...

    Norton United resign

    http://www.pitchero.com/clubs/nortonunitedfootballclub/news/club-statement-1410090.html Awful news. That rent is obscene and would be in the region of your typical step four team's complete gate receipts. The fact they got through five rounds in the FA Cup and still can't meet up to it shows...

    Old photos of your ground

    Saw this thread on the League 2 forum and thought it was fit. Nothing more pleasing to my eye than pre-Taylor report football stands etc. Since the non-league still has some wonderful, unique grounds and had even more interesting venues going way back, I thought we could have a go at this topic...

    Help bring Salisbury FC back to the Ray Mac

    https://www.change.org/p/wiltshire-council-and-the-trustees-of-the-raymond-mcenhill-trust-save-our-stadium I feel this is well worthy of its own thread. A Salisbury fan's gone on our forum and asked this to get a few signatures so I thought I may as well spread the message here too. I'm...

    Non-league pubs

    Not pubs that are so crap that they're ranked 93rd or lower in your list of decent pubs, but properly good pubs near non-league grounds/'round town. We're talking a few real ales, hopefully more creative choices than Greene King IPA, Copper Dragon and Black Sheep, friendly locals/staff, no loud...
