Possibly the last time we'll hear of them, it doesn't usually go well when the team slides so fast and the chairman has already given the "Don't this town want a X level club..." cry.

For that forward line to not score goals is also a bit criminal.

Agreed, I suspect they'll do a Histon and fall back to their natural level.

Their fans have had some great memories over the years, and stood on the cusp of reaching the Football League - although I doubt they'd have been able to sustain that level.

Given they came up at the same time and have similar colours / playing styles (for a long time), I always likened them to Bromley - but the latter have a much bigger platform.

Still all a bit weird - maybe they're hoping for a 'Klopp Effect' to galvanise them - surely they haven't chucked in the towel just yet?

I think it's just the opposite of the Klopp effect. They're resigned to relegation and think they might as well save the new manager search and the associated clear out of players until the close season.

Yeah, they have a bad run in, and they seem to have lost their fight over the recent games (their 2 goals this weekend excluded).

Sincerely hoping York do the business tonight and Kiddy also pull off the escape with maybe Woking or Wealdstone joining BW, Dorking, & Oxford.

Ha, it was more due to morbid curiosity how they would end up dividing NLN/S. Plus preference for Kiddy & York

This could only happen in real life football or very poorly written fiction. 😂😂😂
