  1. Ah yes, forgot about Chertsey, that skews the figures a bit. I meant to say South&West when referring to Guildford City. And Chipstead are already safe. Completely new team since he took over.
  2. Was thinking about the promotions over recent years from CCL and how in general those teams do fine at Step 4. Thought I'd check the facts but happy to be corrected if wrong about anything. 2006/07 - Chipstead - never relegated since though flirted with relegation a few times - still in Ryman South 2007/08 - Merstham - finished 8th in Ryman South first season, then generally mid-table until play-off win a year ago, mid-table this season in Ryman Premier 2008/09 - Bedfont Green - disbanded whilst at Step 4 (money issues?) 2009/10 - North Greenford United - nearly relegated a few times and now looks like they will be back to Step 5 after 6 seasons 2010/11 - Chertsey - relegated back to Step 5 after a couple of seasons 2011/12 - Guildford City - struggled when pushed into Southern League and came back down to Step 5 where they remain 2012/13 - Egham - fine at Step 4 and this year in the play offs in Southern Central so could be Step 3 next season - Guernsey (two up this season) - competed fine at Step 4 level where they remain 2013/14 - South Park - two decent seasons now at Step 4 2014/15 - Molesey - look like finishing top half of Ryman South in first year back there So, out of 9 promoted teams, three relegations and one disbanded. One (possibly soon two) team at Step 3. Overall, I'd say that's a good success rate. I'd say any of the teams that could've gone up this season would be fine as well whoever it ends up being.
  3. It's four this season and they just at the top of that zone, some points gap but with games in hand so anything could happen there.
  4. Projections are of course just guesswork and with the FA, it can be a futile exercise I admit but there are ways that three CCL1 clubs could be promoted even with several clubs dropping down into the CCLP. And the rumour is that Step 3 leagues will relegate six next season to get back down to 22. This could cause changes further down the pyramid of course.
  5. Doesn't work like that. The CCL1 clubs will still get promoted to Step 5 if eligible but they or other teams could be pushed sideways by the FALC. So for example, current projections have AFC Hayes and North Greenford being in SSM league not CCL.
  6. Redhill 0-1 Guildford City Poor game first half on boggy pitch though fair play that they got in on. Second half, City much the better side and deserved the late winner.
  7. Watched them today against Merstham. They've apparently signed a lot of players on loan in recent weeks to get them out of trouble but not sure it will be enough on what I saw. Look out CCL, here they come!
  8. I seem to be bad luck for CCL sides in the Vase this season as after seeing Knaphill last weekend, I went to Bowers & Pitsea v SCR today. SCR I thought had the better of the first half but the terrible pitch made it a leveller and Bowers scored three in the second half. Don't worry Hartley/Camberley, I won't be coming down for you games next week!
  9. Very generous offer by Marc especially considering how the people running Dorking FC used to act toward Wanderers. What a gent.
  10. Saw Knaphill at Kidlington today. Feisty full-bloodied cup tie that ended 3-2 to Kidlington. Knaphill gave the first goal away (bad free kick by keeper) and allowed easy header for 2nd. HT 2-0. Second half was all Knaphill but they could only pull one back (through impressive nippy sub that Johno wanted on earlier) before the 90. Kidy broke and made it 3-1 in stoppage time but the Knappers didn't give up and scored another from a scrambled corner in the final minute of the 95. Unlucky for Knaphill but I think Kidlington JUST deserved it overall. Good game though.
  11. Hi Rich, I hear E&E have signed a new deal with Chipstead. Is that just for one more year?
  12. The other possibility is Farnborough going under which would also reprieve Redhill. As another Redhill-'hater' I hope that don't happen The cries of 'Redhill' when the ball goes over the bar still go on at Merstham to this day.
  13. Aren't FA Cup prices determined by the FA? Seem to recall that say a Step 6 club hosting a Step 4 has to charge the higher rate or am I imagining that?
  14. The only time you can ever judge a ref properly is if you are a neutral at the game. Personal interest will always bias your opinion unless you are perfect!
