The B-Ark / Re: Best non league team.

I don't think the football league and non league have been things since the mid 80s
They used to be cordoned off being the old pals act
Now there's promotion and relegation and many teams are fully professional at levels 5 and 6 so we may as well be division 6 north

The problem is that the introduction of two up-two down essentially made the Conference a de facto Division 4 and really blurred the boundaries between League and non-league!

When I was at University doing my Maths degree I remember having a job interview in my final year (1979). The usual "What are your hobbies?" question came up and I bragged about supporting Boston United - "arguably the best non-league side in the country" I said. The interviewer disputed that and said the side he supported had a better claim - Leatherhead! They had beaten a few League sides in the FA Cup in 1974/5 - Colchester and Brighton to reach the 4th round where they had a televised match at Leicester City that they lost 3-2 and they'd reached the FA Trophy Final in 1978 but lost it to Altrincham. Turned out they couldn't sustain the successes though. I've just checked and they now play in the Isthmian League Premier Division.

The bit I've started putting together on Boston United's York Street statistics is here:

I'm trying to get all the information I've got on the website on results and team sheets and attendances into a massive spreadsheet so I can analyse it properly. I've already got a lot of data in - hence the statistics in the piece above. I'll hopefully add some more stuff in over the next few weeks.

Our bowls club's clubhouse is made of shipping containers. No-one's ever called it quirky!

Barnet have been top flight of non league football, or higher, since the mid 1970s. They've got to be there or thereabouts.
