Lower division clubs you like and dislike
I use to keep an eye on Orient for years but was turned off when they got involved in the Olympic Stadium decision.

I like to see Coventry do well, they’ve been through it over recent years.

Stoke is one I always hope to see lose. Them and Millwall of course.

Who do you keep an eye on?

Re: Lower division clubs you like and dislike
I have soft spot for Morecambe FC as I lived there when I was a student and watched them a few times. There in the depths of the FA structure and are the only team where I have thought "I could do better than that" and probably been right.
The cricket club was a completely different kettle of fish. First time I watched them Ravi Shastri was the club pro and smashed it all over the place for 150+ and then took a fivefer.

MK Dons - Home town
Oxford Utd / Oxford City - Current town

Rochdale - a friend supports them, so I've been to a few games.

Torquay - spent a few weekends down there to see them.

Chelmsford City - home town club

I went to a local game Hendon v Dorchester town on Saturday played in atrocious conditions albeit on an artificial pitch in front of no more than 150 supporters including a dog.

I don’t like Dagenham much, but Redbridge is quite acceptable.
So if I go to Dagenham and Redbridge fc I suppose I’d cheer half the team and boo the rest.
If Moyes ever gets the manager’s job there, I will stay away though.

Paulon

Good point, well made, though I think we can all agree that I'll be right about Palace again in a season or two. Arsenal, too, rather more hopefully

Very poor Googling skills. There's more to life than 1 Wiki entry.

The original amateur club was formed in 1861 as the football section of the already existing cricket club founded in 1857. They played in Crystal Palace Park - named after, um, the Crystal Palace. The surrounding area (still not a town or city, even today, just contiguous outskirts of about five other towns) around the park was developed and eventually became similarly named after the nearby building. The club sure as hell isn't named after a town or city and in fact doesn't even share its name with a proper one.

Palace aren't in the England Football League

And neither is Arsenal

Re: Lower division clubs you like and dislike
Crystal Palace is a leafy and hilly area in South London, named after the Crystal Palace Exhibition building which stood in the area from 1854, until it was destroyed by fire in 1936. About 7 miles southeast of Charing Cross, it includes one of the highest points in London, at 367 feet, offering views over the capital. Wikipedia

'Port Vale the only club in the English football league not to be named after a town or a city.'

Erm... Crystal Palace

Thanks White Pony
Yeh York Road is classic. Some funny memories going as a kid. Even reported in the advertiser as hooligans and denied any involvement when questioned by my mother!

Gillingham, lived in the area for a while as a kid and remember Steve Bruce and Tony Cascarino being exceptional at that level.

Re: Lower division clubs you like and dislike
Mex, I think the move to Braywick got blocked so yeah, not sure there is a plan B. York Rd is a proper old ground, I love it.

Re: Lower division clubs you like and dislike
White Pony, I think in the end Maidenhead are staying in York Road and shelved the move to Braywick? It would be shame if they moved as York Riad is the oldest continuously used football stadium in the world.

Re: Lower division clubs you like and dislike
I keep an eye out for Folkestone Invicta as used to stand on the terraces there when I was a teenager. Also Maidenhead United (where I live now) and Bath City (where I work).

Also like Bristol Rovers as used to live there and work at their ground.

Like none.

Dislike all.

Re: Lower division clubs you like and dislike
Maidenhead United do ok in the National League, a few years have been close to promotion. Alan Devonshire has been managing them for years. I used to live there and saw them a few times including a West Ham preseason friendly many years ago. Nice old ground.
