Re: The Non - League thread

Not much shadenfreude on here about our old friends from the Rec staring relegation in the face as they now find themselves 10 points from safety in the National League. Tehy have a couple of 6-pointers coming upp against Borehamwood and Dover with a possible humdinger on the last day at second bot...

Re: The Non - League thread

From last night. FA Trophy R1 Replay Bedford Town (Step 3 - SLD1C) 7-0 Aldershot Town (Step 1 - NL) :shock: They were due to play their academy/youth team due to their injury list and FA rules preventing them from registering new players after the original tie was played.....Aldershot that is. :) E...

Needham Market have pulled out of the FA Trophy Game on Saturday was apparently called off about an hour before kick off. The FA wanted them to trek back down to Weymouth for Tuesday night but Needham Market said no on the grounds of players and staff having to take more time off work this week (2 d...

Re: The Non - League thread

Holmer Green moving from South Mids to Hellenic is a geographically odd one given their relative ease of travel to areas of NW London, Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire clubs.

I don't think I will ever understand the geography of the Hellenic League

Re: The Non - League thread

Can someone explain to me the rules around the FA Trophy - Orient's game went to extra time on Saturday, yet some of the other games that finished level go to a replay... It’s down to agreement between the clubs I believe.... “Extra Time in First Matches If a first match is drawn after 90 minutes, ...

Re: The Non - League thread

Yep AFC Bournemouth play in Hampshire Senior Cup, entered at the second round stage this season. Hampshire Senior Cup allows entries from Dorset, Wiltshire and IOW. I guess all are by some local agreement. Newport (IOW) FC for example are affiliated to IOW FA which is a division of Hampshire FA. Bou...

Re: Best wishes Bobby Convey

Thank you for posting this. Until this post I was unaware Convey had even retired from playing football. For me he was an excellent player and was my favourite player during his time at Reading not just in the 106 season. I'm certain had he not had the injury problems he would have stayed with Readi...

Re: Ipswich (a)

What's best route via train? Personally doing Reading - Paddington - Kings Cross - Cambridge - Ipswich (but I'm breaking the journey at Stowmarket). If you choose this route, make sure you split the journey as on a straight through Reading - Ipswich ticket the route isn't valid. Works out at £57.80...

Network Southeast ID cards introduced to the Southbank. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e9DPJPsaYhA What a shambles that was. Huge queues to get in and the cards didn't even 'ID' you.

Mike Williams a sports reporter on BBC Radio has said on air before he is a Reading fan - covers for Vassos Alexander on R2 Breakfast so assume he's from 5Live.

Re: Norwich Away

I thought those clubs with categories used Grade A as games where either local derby, club with large away following or history of trouble between two clubs that requires extra resources. We are in none of these categories. In the current division I guess only Ipswich, Leeds, Sheff Wed and maybe Bir...

From the nostaglia section on the evening post website - in fact there are photos of a few on there from games towards the end of 88/89 season. This one is from the Chesterfield match we won 4-2 to avoid relegation. Includes some terrace action and features a few Reading terrace legends including on...
