Whatever Boro’ could do, Raunds Town felt they could too; a United Counties League Division One title coming two years after us. We actually met them as part of our 1980-1 United Counties League Division One campaign. And we’d book-end our time in the competition by again playing the Shopmates as equals. This time, it’d be the 1983-4 Premier Division campaign. And this time, the club opted not to follow in our footsteps as we leapt up to the Isthmian League. the Shopmates, meanwhile, plugged away at the UCL for years to come.
