A Healthy Day Out

Non League Day sees us travel to Maidstone to see an artificial pitch, a drubbing and a lot of football supporters in one place.

Nearly There

Memories, are made of this. Of our five remaining level nine underdogs, three are in the hat for the 4th Qualifying Round

Sunday Bloody Sunday

Football, every day, football, endless football … What about just Saturday? Warren Carter doesn’t like Sunday football.

Whitehawk Down at Top Field

Genuinely one of our favourite Yapp Reports from the FA Cup. Get yerself a nice mug of tea and sit back while Graham takes you through England’s green and pleasant land.

Don’t Dream It’s Over

Number 63 … Lewes …. will play ….. number 33 … Portsmouth. Globe-trotting Stuart Fuller dreams. And then … Hendon 3-0 Lewes:
