Full Time in the Northern Premier League - just seems crazy even saying this after how the 2019/20 & 2020/21 seasons have panned out, and the dire financial status being reported by some National League clubs.

No One apparently Pete

I had a Twitter run in with their chairman a few weeks ago, got very snotty. Told me everything was funded by sponsors and supporters and it was a proper community club.

Of course I believed him
