Clubs like Hereford, Yeovil, Burton,Maidstone and now possibly Solihull Moors have overachieved over the years and I suspect it could eventually all end in tears but in no way do I begrudge them their moment in the sun.
How is throwing millions and millions of pounds at a club in order to get in the football league a fairytale? It is just inevitable. The money will run out quite soon though.
Yeovil were pretty always been a well supported club at non-league level, and probably ought to be about where Wycombe are, as a sort of League one/two yoyo club. Burton will probably be around that level too.
Hereford were a pretty solid 4th tier club, who never looked out of place in the league.
Unlike many clubs, Solihull Moors don't seem to be a bankrolled club living beyond their means. They are just having an exceptionally good season.
Given Maidstone's crowds have been matching the National League average, or better, since returning home seven years ago, I'm a bit puzzled as to how they've overachieved.
Maidstone overachieved by getting into the football league.
