lulz :oops: :twisted: - added a spurious '3' - sorry!

Mind you the A30 down that way is more of a cart-track - in some places, only just wide enough for the white line!

... meanwhile I got up the M40/M42 to the Valley Stadium home of Redditch.

- nice bar - though only Tetley on draught (excl. lager/cider) - decent grub on offer, generally friendly sarf-brummies - plenty of VilLOLla scarves about and lots of folk trying to follow the scores coming in from Luton.

Odd ground though- very few seats - a small very cramped few rows of sky blue seats - possibly bought in from Highfield Rd; if anyone can remember the stand there?
Woefully indequate gaps between rows, that suggested they used David Speedie to model the height of your typical spectator.

Home side vying for the PO spots behind Slough in the Southern Premier, beat a very average Ciren Town 4-1.

Think I've only got Weymuff to complete this division now and two of the more remote Devon clubs down at Div One.

BBC Non-league club Basingstoke Town have listed themselves for sale on auction site Ebay, with bids starting at 99p.

The Southern Premier League side needs new investment with chairman Rafi Razzak stepping down after 25 years at the end of the season.

"The world needs to know the club is for sale," supporter and former director Simon Hood told BBC Sport.

Ebay suspended bidding after five hours when a number of high offers up to £66,000 triggered security settings.

The auction is set to close on 13 December and the club promises to thoroughly vet and check any successful bidder for the seventh-tier Hampshire side.

"If we don't find a buyer, nobody knows what's going to happen to the club," Mr Hood, 32, who is behind the Ebay listing, added. "It could just disappear.

"It's a club with a very long tradition and what better way to keep that going than to let the world know it's for sale?"

Basingstoke, nicknamed The Dragons and founded in 1896, face an uncertain future at their current Camrose Stadium and have debts of £2m.

Planning permission for a new 5,000-capacity stadium and training facility on the edge of the town was refused in January.

Mr Razzak was critical of the decision and admitted his "vision for the club had failed at the local council's hands".

The auction site listing describes the club as "used", adding "the item may have some signs of cosmetic wear" and says it is available for collection only.

Basingstoke are not the first club to appear for sale on the auction website. Tranmere Rovers were placed for sale with a starting bid of $10m in July 2009, but the listing was subsequently removed.

In April, Australian rugby league player Ryan McGoldrick failed to find himself a buyer after the site ruled it infringed its rules on "selling body parts and remains".

Great crowd at Brakkers

Any idea of the gate at Nor Lye? Hereford normally swell their hosting teams coffers

...and sadly Bedfont Sports bow out of the Vase losing 2-3 to Crowborough - twice drew level but conceded a soft third on 85'.

NATS
Margate 0-2 St Albans City
Oxford City 0-6 {SIX} Hungerford Town – 2 for Louis Soares and Goodyer and one each for Bignall and Williams. George Legg in goal for the Crusaders, saves a 1st half pen from ex-Royal Scott Davies

Sandhurst Town
1-5 Penn & Tylers Green

Cheltenham Saracens 0-17 {SEVENTEEN} Fairford Town – following on from their 0-12 reverse at Ab Utd last w/e – it would appear Sarries are rapidly heading for the nether reaches of the Glawster County leagues and probably not a moment too soon. Sad for a club who finished in the promotion places last season though admittedly were relegated the year before, with a single figure points haul (4) and a GD of -102. They are looking to go beyond that by some distance with a -98 from only 17 games. Oddly enough they are 4th bottom on 10 points

Shrivenham 1-2 Abingdon United

Dagenham & Redbridge 1-2 Worthing :shock:

Dagenham are 4th in the National League and Worthing are 19th (and 3 points above the relegation zone) in the Ryman Premier.

Commendable 1-1 for Truro at Forest Green as well
