I expect most of the Radcliffe fans would remember Jody Banim, he was a goal machine while playing for Radcliffe Boro, us Shrews signed him and i watched him play several times and could never quite understand why he didn't get more game time while with us. If i remember rightly didn't Ian Fitzpatrick move from Shrewsbury to Radcliffe Boro, watched him a few times too, good player.
The commentator, in mentioning the other games to take place today, mentioned Whitchurch Airport in some of the 'quaint' names of clubs involved. It is actually Whitchurch Alport, and has been since 1946!
What a wonderful opportunity the FA Cup is for lower league teams, a chance to make a name for themselves and earn some cash at the same time. Good luck to both these teams today and well done the BBC for putting this on for us.
Played with Frank for our school team. He was a scrawny little winger then, not the lump he is now. Best wishes mate
1. Any team that wants to “do a $alford” deserves nothing but contempt.2. Anyone who thinks Frank Sinclair is a “top guy” obviously never saw him throw touch line tantrums and try to get opponents sent off when he was Colwyn Bay manager.3. Anyone who down votes this please go back to watching Salah and Young diving in the Premier league.
Nobodies.. they stink.
I was at Radcliffe Boro the day Gazza pulled on a shirt and played for them.Nobody could believe it.
Lower league football is a credit to the game; I used to always watch my home town club Barnet play. With so few people in the ground it was the crowd that changed ends at half-time. The metal gates across the players tunnel had to be unlocked before I was back behind the other goal. The intoxicating liniment and the trotting of studs on the concrete as the players emerged is a lovely memory.
Sums up English football, not too big a gap between Sky wages and burst bubbles, enjoy your weekend watching the most boring league in Europe
Good to see Heys getting some publicity. Tidy ground tidy club. Congratulations to the BBC for showing these games. The publicity for Heys and Borough can only help.
