Looking at it last night, it is so southern based. If notts or chesterfield go up we lose one of our “ close” games. Some horrendous trips to Dover, Weymouth and the like.

I doubt we’ll be going to Dover once the NL have finished with them they’ll be playing on a Sunday morning in the local park.

Let’s just hope Weymouth is in August or at the end of the season.

Kings Lynn (if they stay up) will be a good away day.
Never been to Wealdstone.

Halifax stands out of the Northern games and Chesterfield is always a good one.


I have an inferiority complex-It's not a very good one though.

Looking at the current table, all sides from 12 down are south of Birmingham, with the exception of Kings Lynn which may as well be in terms of convenience.

That said, there are still some decent away days in there if you manage to pair up with nearby major cities.

- Halifax via Leeds
- Stockport and Altrincham via Manchester
- Solihull via Birmingham
- Barnet, Boreham Wood, Dagenham and Bromley via central London

On top of that, Notts County is of course already in Nottingham and the likes of Chesterfield and Hartlepool aren’t too hard to get to, assuming none of them go up. As divisions go, it’s probably more interesting than League Two has been the last couple of years.

Look, the last 12 months have been exhausting from both a GTFC perspective and every day life, and it’s an absolute travesty that in all likelihood we’re going to be playing non-league football once more.

But once things have improved sufficiently and it’s time to go back to games, I intend to do as many away trips as humanly possible. Having spent every Saturday for a year with the wife and kids for a year I absolutely need it.

And boy, I don’t care if he (or she, in these modern times) awards us six penalties and a dodgy goal, the referee in that first game is going to be getting some “fúcks” and “cùnts” from me - a year or so’s pent up stress and frustration released in a single, purple faced burst.

Whatever tinpot league we’re in, I can’t wait.

Add Wealdstone to your Central London list, let’s hope Torquay if not promoted is when the weather is decent.

I know it’s a bit tenuous but a night out in Central Birmingham after a visit to Solihull would be worth a trip.

Let’s hope the evening games are the crap away trips.

Like us all I want to be in the EFL but if it’s the NL I intend to enjoy it as best I can after all this time without attending a game.

Well if it's predominantly southern based that's the best news I've had for the last 12 months.

Weymouth is in beautiful Dorset, one of my favourite counties. Bloody long drive though.

I hated non league last time and not looking forward to it at all. Never imagined we would be going back so soon. Gutted!
