........and the shortest club name in the 92 is now................?


QPR and WBA don't count as these are only abbreviations.

However, if you include all semi-professional clubs in the UK, then Ware now take the honours.

Honours shared with Rhyl.


But surpassed by Cwm...


A quick search on Google will show Albion, Welfare, etc...but no Cwm FC!

Yes the club still exists and, according to their MP, has appealed to the EFL against the expulsion. He says "the EFL have proof of funds from a further credible global organisation with bid agreed with owner Steve Dale."

Not sure they even have a right of appeal though.


The Guardian reports that this 'agreed bid from a credible global organisation', apparently submitted before the 5pm deadline, is with one Gustavo Perreira, a London-based pastor in partnership with WGS Mining, a gold mining company in Brazil: https://amp.theguardian.com/...tter_impression=true

The league has said it'll look at any letter but there is no appeal against the expulsion and the decision is very unlikely to be reversed.

What's interesting, though, is that this bloke appears to be the main man at Eastern Senior League side Fire United judging by his two directorships per Companies House: https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/...6N_ghFs/appointments. I see one of them has an overdue filing..

Unfortunately Cwm FC disbanded 3 seasons ago. They were playing in the Gwent County second division at the time but struggled to raise players so had to knock it on the head

At the risk of offending everyone, I found it amusing that Muff was an expert on Cwm, especially after knocking it on the head. Tongue

Frith says that Bury are on the agenda for today's EFL board meeting, though doesn't say in what context.

Strange - football fans and politicians are (rightly) outraged at the football authorities for allowing any old Joe to run and ruin a football club.

But now football fans and politicians are urging the football authorities to allow a last minute £7m offer from a London pastor and a Brazilian gold mine, for whom "due diligence is not an issue" according to the BBC, to preserve a club's status.

Funny old game.

Be interesting to see if Frith raises the Bury scandal in the House of Commons next week. He must be sorely tempted to raise the tangled web of their finances and the agreeing of the CVA.

Of course, the HofC may be pre-occupied with other matters. Frown

This must have occurred very soon after our visit which was on New Years Eve 2016

I believe it was at the end of that season . The pitch has been used for the odd game by RTB Ebbw Vale and Nantyglo since but donít think itís is permanently used by anybody now

Now that efforts to rescind the club's expulsion have failed, he's tweeted tonight about 'upping the ante in parliament' being the next step. As you suggest, timing may not be the best!

With Steve Dale blaming everyone but himself for Bury's problems he presumably thinks the proroguing of Parliament is proof of a massive establishment conspiracy to prevent questions being asked about their situation.

The Gwent Premier League have a team they refer to as Oak.

The club call themselves The Oak though.
