hello all, just like to say ive been reading this forum for a while, The only Canvey one i have at the moment and i thought id post, Well i support liverpool and go to a few games a season but not having a season ticket, Its hard to get most games. A few mates of mine started supporting Canvey a while ago aswell as sheff utd, and ive also gone the same way <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />. The players canvey had were in my eyes brilliant, Personally my fave was Conroy and Boylan, but all things have changed since the Relagations etc.

I Was also wondering, i went to York away last season and enjoyed it all, Got a few funny looks when i spoke though with the Yorkshire accent. So ill be paying a view more visits down to Canvey Next season. Goodbye

Everyones welcome.

Dave did you and some friends go to Leigh RMI (away) a couple of seasons ago?

Must be a good excuse to open up a northern branch now <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> or even exiles. I think I've seen posts from Sheffield, Cumbria, and Cornwall on here - any others?

Hello, No i didnt go the away match a few seasons ago, The reason we all started supporting Canvey Was because most of us support Lfc and sheff U etc, but theres always IMO more excitment and action in Non League football, but not much of it on the tele <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />

Eccleshall Road yeh, the resturant Yankees i visit frequently Lol, Going to a tennis club around there aswell soon, but im from Near Firth park if you know where that is, The side of the city where medowhall is.

Fantastic stuff! You'll have to try and make a trip down to the Lane this season! So, does this mean we can officially launch the "Northern Gulls" Supporters Club!?!

Sounds like a good idea. Cant always get down though due to work and having no money. But if we organise a website or something, then that would be interesting having a northrn branch of Canvey supporters.
