and it makes it even better when talking to smarmy Derby fans when you can remind them about Buxton. Legzins and Brayford's origins!
I agree Odette, I wish Derby well while Nigel is there. Great credit to Jake for stuffing it up those callers to Radio Derby on Monday evening who, whether they win, lose or draw, call for NC to be sacked and take his "non-league mates" with him.
Kristian Ramsey-Dickson, who I don't recall appearing for our 1st team, has joined Alfreton Town on a 1 year deal. I notice the Reds have reverted to part-time this year.Tough ask in a Conference full of 'big ex-league clubs' who are still full-timers.
Before criticising someone, try walking a while in their shoes. Then you'll be further away from them, and you've nicked their shoes.
I think a few more Conference clubs will be reverting to part time soon although I can't see a part time club challenging for the play offs.
It is worth noting that Burton Albion did not go full time until they joined the Football League. I think the only team in recent years to have gained promotion as a part time team. I do agree though it would be far harder now, because of some of the big ex-league clubs in the Conference. Frankly I was surprised when Alfreton announced they were going full time in the first place, due to the size of the club and their gates. The Brewers also had about £80K a season Setanta TV money to help.
