Yep, Have to say I agree with you totally Mr Happy. The only link between the Ware based club formed last year and EFC is that some of it's supporters supported both clubs. Not enough to claim 100 plus years of history, I'm afraid.

Don't think its that unusual in any buisness these days, take this extract about Airdrie United/Airdrionians, particualy the Clydebank part!

After the club went out of business, a local fan, Jim Ballantyne, attempted to gain entry to the SFL with a team by the name of Airdrie United Football Club, effectively a direct replacement of Airdrieonians (similar to the way that Fiorentina re-established themselves as Florentia Viola following their own collapse under crippling debt). Airdrie United's initial bid for league status was rejected, however, as the member clubs had already accepted the application of Gretna Football Club, who were then playing in the English UniBond League.

In desperation, Ballantyne opted to buy control of Clydebank, another Scottish football club experiencing extreme financial hardship and, with SFL approval, the club's name was changed to Airdrie United, the team relocated to Airdrie and the strip was altered to the famous diamond style of Airdrieonians. Airdrie United are predominantly viewed as a continuation of Airdrieonians, with the majority of the same supporters attending Airdrie United matches and the new club taking up the position of rivals to clubs such as Motherwell, Hamilton, Clyde and Partick Thistle who, historically, had had long standing enmity with Airdrieonians Football Club.

Accrington Stanley , Middlesboro, Newport Co , Bouremouth Aldershot,Bradford Park Ave , Telford ,Hornchurch All pretty much kept the same name and no doubt the club badges as well . I may have missed some as well I'm sure there are more .

There are some in administration even now and their propects dont look to rosey and they may have to start again .

Good piece about Ardrieonians Gazza What a horror story , I'm Surprised old Lazarou never thought of that one.

Now then Mr Happy , I'll add pretty vacant to your'e pathetic list of I D's , You seem to always forget that your'e old Kev can spot a plank like you a mile off .
