Friends re-united :

Boston or altrincham ,wealdstone and probably weymouth .

all founder members of the original 'conference' /Alliance league 40 years ago .

(along with barnet and yeovil )

What is it about clubs finding their 'natural level '?

I sincerely hope so.
Up until Bradford game this season, the league match with most spectators was at their place of around 13,000 plus.
And we normally do well against them.
Besides it is a lot closer than Harrogate.

Approaching half time, it looks like Harrogate will be joining League 2 next season.

Magpies all over the shop.

2-0

Should be 3.0 too..

Be multi tasking with footy and grand prix.. last 2 laps were pure drama well done lewis.

What happens to harrogates 4?g pitch with the season <6weeks away...or will efl allow a dispensation.
It's an environmental disaster disposing of them too ...only one company can and I think it's in holland.

Please don't be sarky.
The link would have been sufficient.

Harrogate will be playing home games at Doncaster Rovers, until their own pitch is ready.

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
