The worst nickname in the Rymans League is that of Egham. <p>They were referred to as 'the sarnies' in a recent NLP match report. This a play on words ie. egg/ham sandwich. Dreadful/

images/icons/wink.gif" border="0 I must admit that when I first started supporting Braintree I was a little put off with friends referring to me as a "Raving Iron" but now I am in touch with my feminine side it doesn't bother me anymore!! <img src="graemlins/images/icons/wink.gif" border="0" alt="wink" /> images/icons/wink.gif" border="0

Barrow's nickname is the Bluebirds which has given rise recently to the highly enjoyable and well thought out lyrics of the chant;
"All bluebirds are blue, all bluebirds are blue, all bluebirds are blue" etc etc etc...
This has confused many opposition fans this season as we ar playing not in our traditional 'England' colours, but in Newcastle style black and white stripes. (It's our centenary season, and our kit 100 years ago was the afore mentioned stripes <img src="graemlins/birthday.gif" border="0" alt="birthday" /> )
Keep your eyes on the score tomorrow; (Or is that tOOmorrow, Mr Blair)<p>BAFC V Oldham - MOTD 10:30ish <img src="graemlins/kugel.gif" border="0" alt="[kugel]" />

We're the Eagles of course. Long before Crystal Palace were apparently. Not really sure why. The county crest has an eagle on I think although I can't explain why. It does make for a good ground name though.

Ours must have taken a long time to work out! <p>At least talking about the K's is more fortunate than Enfield fans having to whisper about E's...

I'll have you know we are proud to be Es. "Give us an E!" - as the chant goes. Anyway, we're ETs now. Hardly an improvement, I must admit.
I take it you've never heard of 'Special K' then, Ali, while we're on the subject? And I'm not talking about Kellogg's... <img src="graemlins/trippy.gif" border="0" alt="[trippy]" />

I find it tricky keeping up with all the latest trends while living in a foreign country, but I thought the name ET's wasn't settled yet. Nicknames take time to get accepted, and Enfield Town is a relatively new club, due to celebrate its centenary in ninety-nine and a half years time.<p>I have posted a discussion of the nickname of Enfield Town on the nickname page of theCome On You ETs site.

Just to join in this exhilarating discussion I can tell you that the 'Boro' nickname for Romford began when the town was granted borough status back in the good old original Isthmian amateur league days.<p>'Up the Boro'!

Purfleet (in common with Gravesend&Northfleet) use the equally highly original 'Fleet'. (And apparently also sell the equally originally named fleetburger).

i think clubs should look deeper into their history to find nicknames, rather than make one up from their name or badge design. I think they should b more interesting.

"The Fleet" was originally Northfleet United's nickname, but was kept by the amalgamated side when they formed after the war.<p>As a matter of interest, Gravesend United's nickname was "The Shrimpers", which may have given Canvey fans some trouble if it was used instead! <img src="graemlins/cool1.gif" border="0" alt="[cool1]" />

Ahh, Shrimpers takes me back to the 2nd round FA Cup tie at Southend.<p>That poor depressed pink thing walking around the pitch before that game to chants of "Gulls eat Shrimps" by about 4000 fans!<p>Then I believe it got fired! <img src="graemlins/lach.gif" border="0" alt="[lach]" /> <img src="graemlins/lach.gif" border="0" alt="[lach]" /> <img src="graemlins/lach.gif" border="0" alt="[lach]" /> <p>Matt CIFC <img src="graemlins/asien.gif" border="0" alt="asien" />
