Torquay. As others got a soft spot for them. From memory we won their once to seal the play offs and once to get automatic promotion (2000). Both times the harbour was a sea of claret and white and the sun beating down.

Almost impossible (might even be with the actual games to be played) but Boreham Wood. Can then bore (not intended) everyone with how I have played there a few times in my youth.  Kiss



edit: cant find the playoff game so must be mistaken. Im sure we have had 2 parties down in Devon though and celebrated on the pitch  Huh?

Whichever teams are the weakest with the highest likelihood of us taking 6 points from.

Were we on a few wish lists of current League two teams for the same reason?  Grin

Zen Master, the weakest teams don't tend to be promoted,  they are normally relegated  Grin Grin

How old are you? Lol!

We won there in the 1984/85 season, 6th May, it was the final game of the season, and we ended up finishing 23rd on 47 points, they finished 24th on 41 so if they had beaten us we would have finished bottom! That was still in the old re-election days and all the bottom four were re-elected for the following season.

We also won there on Easter Monday 1997, that was the first win in a seven game unbeaten run at the end of the season which eventually led to us making the playoffs and of course beating Swansea at Wembley to get promoted.

37   Undecided So that rules out 84/85  Grin
Might have been 97. I'm going for a lie down!

Last time I went we lost 3-0 on the opening game of the season. I remember that much

Wasn't their chairman rather outspoken about us avoiding the drop at Kiddies expense that year? I thought there was a bit of bad feeling as a result of that, or is my brain getting as addled as Woodies apparently is?
I was there for the game in 97, stood by the corner flag. Agree with others it's a nice part of the country is that 'rivierra', for a long weekend.

Congratulations to Sutton United, who have secured promotion with a game to spare.

Torquay, Stockport, Hartlepool and Notts County are all already assured of a playoff place, with Wrexham, Chesterfield, Bromley, Eastleigh and FC Halifax Town all still in with a chance of joining them.

Eastleigh travel to Altrincham tomorrow night to use up their game in hand, a win would see them move up to 6th and knock Chesterfield out of the last spot. The last round of games wil then take place on Saturday, all 1230 kickoffs when the top 7 will be finalised.

The elimination matches will then take place the following weekend, 4th v 7th (3) and 5th v 6th (2). The winners of those games will then travel the next weekend to meet the teams finishing 2nd and 3rd and then the final the week after (20th June) to decide who goes up with Sutton. Due to Wembley being used for the Euros the final will be played at Ashton Gate, home of Bristol City.

The late finish to the National League season explains why the EFL fixtures for next season will be released a week later (on 24th June) than the Premier League fixtures (16th June)

Nor I.
Eastleigh to join them wouldn't be too bad either.

Good to be getting trips to Nailsworth (Stroud ) and Birkenhead (Liverpool) again too!

Sutton's not great tbf! Contrary to what have been reading on social media from those who clearly haven't been... forget the station being a two minute walk away. It's an obscure line, requiring a change at Clapham Junction or somewhere, or at the main Sutton High Street station - which frankly, would be silly, the main station only being a 15 odd minute walk anyway!

Hoping for Stockport County to join them!

I've never been to Edgeley park. Trips to Stockport, Barrow, Sutton and Harrogate would be nice.

I don't know what I was doing but I didn't go to the FA Cup game there in 2010, previous to that we played there in 1976, 1966 and 1910.

Yes, I get that it's relative to where you're coming from!  Grin
Point is though, the pubs are near the High Street station (Fullers pub immediate on exit) whereas the one closer to the ground is just residential!

Ugh, add that to previous post of it being "good to get trips Nailsworth and Birkenhead again" I'm already done with next season.
