Excellent.

At least Attic will be happy with a trip there as allegedly the fish & chips sold up there are first class. :lol: :lol: :lol:

And looking at the current league 2 table the most likely candidate to join them is Southend United.

IF it is confirmed that they are getting relegated of course, AND
if our visit there is on a weekend AND
all travel & ground capacity restrictions have been lifted by then,
... then there should be a veritable mass exodus of Wealdstone fans to the Essex seaside resort. :o :o :o

Even better, make it a Bank Holiday Fixture or the last game of the season a la Truro away please. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Congratulations to Barrow staying up in L2 as well. Another team who weren't able to properly celebrate an historic, title-winning return to a former level but who have secured another crack next season, hopefully in front of fans.

Not 'arf.

On Southend, I don't think they can pull off 2 wins and get round a -8 goal diff (tallied against Scunthorpe) but it's not impossible. We could know more on 1st May. Southend may beat Barrow at home on May Day but going to playoff chasing Newport on the last day of the season.. hmm. Scunthorpe would need to lose both their remaining fixture fairly heavily.

So Southend vs Wealdstone too and the reverse - just look at those fixtures :D

Grimsby's a nice (relatively) local one for me. Though don't forget they play in Cleethorpes. Day out at the seaside? Will probably be a tuesday night in February.

Next years fixtures looking better and better. Just Southend now to really add to the list. Both should surely rate well when it comes to fish n chips at least.

Lets just hope next season is one where we show signs of growing into this league as opposed to feeling like a temporary visitor.

My own view is that this year can be mentally written off - just so many variables, which make any kind of assessment thin.

However, and sorry to go off topic, but we CAN learn from our recruitment mistakes, our pre-season red flags - plus we've had a season to assess what it takes. The perennial issue of money will remain, as will part-time status. Add in managerial inexperience for good measure for a trio of potential excuses..

But, we won't be the only ones with similar challenges and we must, must stay. And we will.

Well we certainly didn't expect one of the brightest managerial prospects in non league football to part company with us in the circumstances that he did. No one could have called that surely? DB came with a few minor yellows regarding his ability to fall out with players but certainly nothing considered likely to cause a dismissal.

As you say, next season should be built on firmer foundations, a better prepared camp and hopefully some positive additions to the squad. No one is expecting anything other than 16th-20th but we shouldn't be conceding ten goals and scoring none in two games against Maidenhead.
