It should be a derby or Reply Privately

I see there was a Carling Cup tie between Southampton and Northampton this week.

Now obviously that should be a local derby but....

Any other fixtures around that look/sound like a derby but aint?!

AFC x v AFC y

"They'll be dancing in the streets of AFC tonight!"

Incidentally, in "New Tricks" the Alun Armstrong character (purportedly a supporter of AFC Wimbledon) has often referred to the team as "good old AFC", or "come on AFC", or some such. I may be wrong, but I ***strongly*** suspect that no AFC Wimbledon supporter has ever referred to their team as such.

Found this the other day: http://en.wikipedia.org/.../Gillingham_Town_F.C.

And it wasn't until recently I discovered there are more than one place called Newcastle, and that the Newcastle clubs weren't necessarily from the same town.

Out of interest - does anyone know where Northwood Town gets its name from - there's certainly no town called Northwood in the county! Theres a tiny village called Northwood, but why they've appended Town on the end of their name seems bizarre!

Paulton Rovers v Poulton Victoria

So Mr. Miller writes in Tiverton's Histry almanac, the press reported that we face Poulton in the FA Amateur Cup "rather that the more accessible Paulton".

Poulton Victoria have folded. You could replace them with Poulton Town (West Lancashire).

I read match reports of the Celtic derby last weekend....Farsley v Stalybridge. The Tameside Advertiser (I think) referred to Stalybridge continually as Celtic, which was most confusing in reading it.

Wellington V Wellington



... I think I dug this one up again on an FA Vase thread a week or two back -
as in "chances of a pair of...." etc meeting at Wembley this season.

Wasn't that funny the first time round! Tongue

TheFA.com also seems a bit confused by the presence of two Wellington's in the 3rd Round and I think (perhaps mistakenly) is calling the one in Somerset: 'Town'.

Certainly the Western League's 'version' of the club is usually listed as just plain 'Wellington' though the 2009 copy of the NL Directory also refers to them as 'Town' in its club listing but not in the tables/index - so the idea has come from somewhere.

In fact searching the 'Grassroots' section - for 'Wellington' gives possibly as many as 16 relatively senior versions playing under that name in different towns/areas - so it could be feasible to have a National Wellington KO Trophy for all such named clubs? Crazy
They could call it the 'Golden Wellie' Wink

Re: [KnowYourMarket] It should be a derby or Reply Privately

Another 'it-could-be-a-derby' (but ain't) ...

Stirling Albion v East Stirlingshire

Like many soft southerners, I'd always presumed that the usually-referred-to-as 'East Stirling FC' must be from the historic city of Stirling. They're not - they've always been from Falkirk, 12 miles away (though there was a nasty forerunner to 'Franchise FC' when they merged with and played at Clydebank for a couple of seasons in the mid.1960s). Their fans never refer to them as 'Stirling', but call them 'The Shire'. At the moment they're groundsharing with their proper derby rivals Stenhousemuir, at Ochilview.

I've only just learnt all this - next week I'm up in Scotland for a few days and hope to get to East Stirlingshire v Buckie Thistle in the Scottish FA Cup 2nd round.

Shire's fans would also claim that Falkirk are their bitter derby rivals. However, they've not been in the same division very often in recent times.

In 1974/5 when Falkirk were on a one-year sabbatical in the Second Division Shire famously defeated them at Firs Park. Shire's manager was a novice by the name of Alex Ferguson, in his first season as a Manager.

Shire repeated the result on Ne'er Day 1980 - a season when the two Falkirk sides filled the promotion spots from the Second Division.

At one time the Shire had quite a strong support from the area around their ground - known as 'The Chinatoon'.

Re: [Whiskey Coates] It should be a derby or Reply Privately

There are Sutton Uniteds in the Football Conference, Cambridgeshire League and the Birmingham AFA. I have a feeling there used to be a Sutton United in Herefordshire as well. Sutton United Juniors and Sutton United girls are attached both to the Conference team, and run independently in Sutton Coldfield.

There indeed was a Sutton United in the top division of the Herefordshire League. The ground is still there (opposite the Amberley Arms) but totally derelict and the grass uncut.

I thought Monkwearmouth was an integral part of Sunderland? Admittedly Ryhope is a village on the outskirks. Its still a derby though surely. They're less than 3 miles apart!

Re: [ciderjon] It should be a derby or Reply Privately

How about in European Games

Arsenal play either:-

FC Arsenal Kyiv, from Kiev, Ukraine
FC Arsenal Kharkiv, from Kharkiv, Ukraine
FC Arsenal Bila Tserkva, from Bila Tserkva, Ukraine
FC Arsenal-Tula, from Tula, Russia
FK Arsenal, from Montenegro
FK Arsenal Kragujevac, from Serbia

How about, if Gibraltar got UEFA recognition,

Manchester United v Manchester United

It's even more confusing than that - Wellington (of Somerset) - the first team in the Western League is called Wellington, while the reserve team (in the Devon & Exeter League) is named Wellington Town.

And wasn`t Wellington Town the previous name of Telford United?

It certainly was and could have been again before the AFC option was decided upon.

They shouldn't get straight to this game without first facing Wick from the Bristol Combination (who did a bostin programme when I went)

Teams have a lot in common as both have used a number of ex Oxford United players in recent years and the Eastleigh owners and ex manager come from the Witney area. Think they meet in a friendly this season or last season..
