Northampton Spencer: Remember Them?

Oooh Betty! Northampton Spencer weren’t the biggest football club in their hometown, but they’ve not been the biggest bother to the local public purse either. Long before we’d ever hope of meeting the Cobblers in battle (we use the term “hope” loosely), we had to work our way up the ladder. Just like we had to do in every town or city about the place; before Luton Town, there was […]

Canvey Island: Remember Them?

The end of a football season means its summer. In our books, there ain’t no debating that. And, as long as the weather keeps playing ball, we can put up with the two-and-a-half-month wait until we do it all again. Trips to the seaside ‘n’ all that; the stuff we couldn’t do on those cold midweek January jaunts to Margate, Sarfend or Morecambe. Even Canvey Island has its charm during […]

Bury: Remember Them?

Out with the old, in with the new; that’s what it’s starting to be about. The end of the season is nigh, and we’ve long since had nowt to play for. So, we might as well begin looking at who’s clearing off our list of tour dates in 2018-9. Now we’re going to be finally rid of Accrington and Luton, someone has to take their places regardless if they (and […]

Milton Keynes Borough: Remember Them?

Long before the Dons came to town, Milton Keynes had an indifferent relationship to football. As the largest celebration of roundabouts in the UK got its status as a fellow New Town in the late 1960s, new clubs looked to take advantage in the population boom. Among these was Milton Keynes Borough FC. Like us, they were a Borough. Like us, a New Town too. And like us, they started […]
