Now the debates and horsetrading begins..

Stephen Cleeve, the owner of NL North high-fliers Kings Lynn, has revealed that the NL were initially keen on declaring the South and North divisions null and void.
‘The reason they couldn’t is because of the league’s ‘articles of association’,’ he said. ‘The legal bits can be a bit dull but in this instance it saved our bacon.
‘In the ‘articles of association’ it says that the National League cannot treat the South and North divisions in a different way to the National League.

‘If they had null and voided South and North, they would have had to null and void the National League as well.’

That last sentence is really interesting, as it implies that indeed the various options to be put forward for the second vote will not contain Null & Void amongst them.


Fingers still tightly crossed.

I am one of those fans who would have liked the season to be finished on the pitch. I totally understand the reason behind the vote and understand it is the correct thing to do for the sake of so many clubs. However I firmly believe that leagues should be finished on a Points per game average and that there should be promotion and relegation throughout the football league structure. If this isn’t done what happens when a similar occurrence happens. Life has its ups and downs and in sport winners and losers, Patrick Thistle have done the right thing in Scotland, let’s hope the right thing is done by the English Fa. Top for 90% of the season the management, players, board and fans should not be denied the promotion it deserves. UTS

That's a great day out.


Are you referring to King's Lynn? :roll: :?

In any case, regardless of any promotions or relegations, there could well be a bit of reshuffling to do, as by the time the next season is started, Gloucester City look set to be back in Gloucester, or as a fall back, playing at Twerton Park, Bath.

Lets wait and see. We all know some people with power have two faces. One for public, the other private. Lots of encouraging things being said on social media. However, we all know when it comes to it, people often hold their nose when they vote and do so for their own self interest.

Bit like the Kent resorts is Rhyl.
Used to be a nice place - allegedly - when Black Country plebs went there on their hols in the 1950s, 60s and 70s. Affluence let Staffordshire plebs holiday abroad and "commuters" moved in.
I won't be popular for saying immigrants ruin places like that but dey do dough don't dey dough?


From National league being cancelled to immigrants being the root of all evil in two easy moves and six posts....unsurprisingly.

My parents were 'immigrants'. They were good people. My dad worked as an NHS nurse for 38 years and volunteered for the St John Ambulance for over 30, my mum worked as a cleaner and also in the Co-Op. They also managed to bring up 5 children in amongst the shite of the 60s, 70s and 80s.

As I said they were good people who contributed to this country. They never went to prison anyway, that's for certain.

Sorry for boring everyone with this, but the relentless crap needs challenging and nobody else seems to want to.

I wonder if any of our players read this forum? A good few of them are the children and grandchildren of 'immigrants'.

I wonder what they make of it?

Usually it's best to display contempt by ignoring the provocation, but good for you.
