I noticed there wasn't a thread for the Vanaroma National League and a non-league thread.

This is the topic for anything about non-league clubs or your local team.

With 3 games into the season. It looks like this in the National League:

Monumentally, North Ferriby United made it into the Conference last season. When you compare the size of the village against the likes of York and Chester etc., it really is a magnificent achievement. Financially the cannot compete with other teams in their division but that also means that the pressure is off. Picked up our first win of the season tonight in a 3-2 victory over Guiseley.

I really can't overstate how much of a mismatch it is for them in this division - but this is also the team who won the FA Trophy a few years ago, so anything can happen. I remember about 5-6 years ago watching Ferriby beat Fleetwood in the Conference North and look how well they are doing now!

And they continued with another win today.

I am hoping Gateshead go up from here, they have been near the promotion play offs in recent seasons.

The managerial merry go round has started then.

Any unexpected performers from the start so far for anyone? I am a tad surprised at Lincoln doing better than they have done in recent seasons.

Poole Town (a few miles from me) have made an impressive start in Conference South after being promoted last season. They lost their first game rather badly, but have done well since then. As a former Woking season ticket holder, I'm disappointed with their start in the Conference National though.

Hopefully this will be the season that Forest Green finally get promoted to the Football League. Top of the league so far.

I assume they are one of the few teams not to have ever been in the league?

The old Maidstone Utd did play in the league however.
Most people in the area don't make a distinction since the team was taken over by the same people within days of the original collapsing even if is technically a different club
