The league. They're specific designs manufactured for the competition.

Re: Update from Ian Kyle

That's some real hate right there. Though my Auntie once got so fed up of the kids in her Bootle street kicking a ball in her garden, that she stabbed it with a bread knife and chucked it back. YellowTaxi will know who I'm talking about here, haha. Oh yeah. And the thing is, the balls we have to us...

Outrageous, this. What would the complaint have been?! Crazy. My favourite was the guy who used to pop the balls when they landed in his garden. That's some real hate right there.

Re: Squad 21/22

I see Rutherford from Wrexham and Lussey from Fylde have both been released. I'd like them both back Southport I thought Jordan Lussey was criminally underrated when he was with us and was on his way to being one of the best non-league midfielders we'd ever had before he was assaulted by Rob Evans ...

Re: National League Statement today

The actual vote was: National League: 0 For, 21 Against, 2 Abstain North: 16 For, 4 Against, 2 Abstain South: 17 For, 4 Against 33 For - 29 Against - 4 Abstentions. But there is weighted voting limiting the effect of the regional divisions. It's incredibly disingenuous for the National League to say...

Re: Popular or poplar

Yet there’s a Poplar Street just round the corner. Great point and I suspect this is one of the reasons why the confusion began. That along with the trees grown behind the stand. There are quite a few roads in the local area named after trees (Chestnut St, Walnut St, Cedar St, Hart St, Ash St, Mapl...

Re: Popular or poplar

I'm with Liam. I reckon Poplar, which matches the sign and the Poplar trees behind the sign. The sign was wrong and while I won't embarass the person who ordered it by naming them, there was absolute disbelief when it was seen internally. The trees are not Poplar trees. It is Poplar. 100%. It isn’t...

Re: £2,000 Fine. . Is it fair?

While I do share a little sympathy for Dover, it's worth mentioning that their chairman James Parmenter was a director of the National League from 2015, resigning in February this year due to disagreements with the board. He was a National League board member when grants mysteriously turned into loa...
