Interesting articles in the Non League papers today.
I did an interview with journalist Paul Collins the other day for Non League Today, which focused on a look back at the season. Towards the end of the conversation we talked about Jermaine and I declined to confirm the sell on clause that was in place. So interesting to see he has framed the whole article around Jermaine and guessed at a 10% sell on. Just goes to prove you can never be sure what angle the journalist will take.
Also interesting to read Russell Grant’s rather bizarre column in the paper. When the Ruislip story broke I had a long chat with Russell about what was going on, at PEPF as well as with Ruislip. Interesting he hasn’t come back to me before penning his latest column where he asks readers to contact him directly.
Also noticed in The Non-League Paper that John Maggs the Horsham boss has warned his club not to “do a Wealdstone” and end up sharing indefinitely, as they have announced that they are sharing at Worthing next season. Can’t argue with that, no one should ever be in a position where they move out of their ground with nowhere to go. Horsham have plenty to do in the coming months as the Ryman League have said they must have planning permission, funding and a business plan in place before an extension to their 1 year deal with Worthing is granted. Sage words John, but actions are very much louder than words where these deals are concerned.
