This is just a bit of a round-up of stuff. Last autumn, I came up with what seemed like the great idea of following the FA Trophy from the earliest round through to the final, sticking with a team until they were knocked out, then going to see their conquerors in the next round and so on. Which is why I found myself in Cambridgeshire on a Sunday afternoon in October, watching St Ives Town play Rugby Town in the preliminary round of the competition. Needless to say, life soon got in the way – aided and abetted by postponements and replays – and after three rounds I had to give up my quest.
I did, though, start a blog to document my “Road to Wembley” and actually wrote up a couple of posts, so if you’re interested in non-league football and want to have a read, click here. You’ll also find pictures from the following round’s tie between St Ives and Kettering Town there. If that tickles your fancy, visit my Flickr page, where there are pictures from Kettering v Burscough. And if that’s not enough non-league match-day stuff for you, then, as Jimmy Cricket would say, there’s more… specifically pictures of Boston United against Solihull Moors.
