Four Of Clubs STEP02 Final Results from this PM

NATN Boston 0-1 Altrincham
NATS Weymouth 0-0 Dartford - hosts win 3-0 pens

STEP01 Final 15:00 Sun Wembley Harrogate v Notts Co live on BT Sport1


I want Harrogate to win. New team would be nice.

Weren't Boston in the league not that long ago?


.... indeed hung on in the bottom division for about 5 yrs before getting booted out and then down twice to NPL for 'financial irregularities'.

Even hosted the mighty Royals in an early League Cup round during that spell. (03-04: 3-1 away win - KFLONL :mrgreen: )

....and Groundshares have been bandied about re Harrogate and their 3G should they reach the FL ... ironically York a PO loser - at STEP02 - being offered up as a possible venue - as was the Odsal?
They would be given a 'grace' period to play elsewhere whilst they restore their ground to non-G.

In deference to Sutekh - whose quote I chopped for brevity 8) - it's been pointed out by the rough equivalent of a 7th dan Anorak :wink: that Altricham and Weymuff have been suitably restored to their natural/proper levels.
They pointed out these clubs finished top two in the inaugural season of the Alliance Premier 79-80 ; so the infant days of the Pyramid. Some intriguing names at the top back then....

Harrogate go up from the National League, some achievement.

Get the diggers in lads, you've got a lot of turf to lay!

First few home games for Harrogate will have to be played “away”, presumably at Bradford, Leeds, York or Huddersfield, while the new turf settles in. But given no one is allowed to go to watch them it’s possibly not going to make a lot of difference!
