News this week that Non League Today has closed down, leaving us with the original Non League newspaper.
I guess the question is whether or not we should surprised? It always struck me as a challenge for two papers to survive – even with a strong economy I’ve never seen that non league football market is big enough to support two papers and so to win Non League Today needed to be distinctly better than the NLP – but it is hard to say it was really that different, and probably not that much better.
That said Wealdstone didn’t do badly with coverage with Russell Grant’s article on us (mainly written by Nick Dugard) just a couple of weeks ago.
I met / spoke to David Watters the editor a couple of times and wish him all the best for the future but it will be interesting to see how he comes back, and whether he will be back on the Non League Show next Monday.
