Why were Chorley playing Halifax Town for the second National League North promotion spot when they ended the season in sixth place? There were four teams above them for the playoffs!

I think it was because Darlington were ineligible for promotion due to ground restrictions

Thats correct.The league ruled they had "Insufficient covered seating areas" to be allowed a crack at promotion.

Interesting. Do Forest Green Rangers comply with their low attendances?

Hi, thanks for asking, yes you're right, it's the Darlington thing- their board admitted they weren't aware the rules had changed last summer until it was too late to do anything about it. That's pretty shambolic if you ask me. As for us, well as you may have noticed, WE. ARE. BACK. Here's a great video of the final, from the Chorley end, with all the goals from around 3:40. Probably the best day ever, since the club reformed- the atmosphere was electrifying. By the way, Chorley's support was terrific, nearly 2000 - last time we played them they had 150, how does that happen?

See you next season. COME ON YOU BLUES. cityscarf.gif

I've heard it suggested that the continuing miserable situation at Blackburn has caused some of their fans to drift over to them. Similar situation with Fleetwood and Fylde getting a few Blackpool fans I think.

Chorley seemed to start getting good crowds the first season after we reformed. I think they got nearly 3,000 in their playoff at the end of that season. I absolutely hated them that season, our first visit there was very nasty, starting with them trying to hike the ticket prices up specially for our visit, and ending with several of our fans being attacked as they left the ground. I'm not going to pretend we were completely blameless, but they did come across as unpleasant club at the time. I believe they now have different owners so maybe I should let it go, but I was glad you beat them to promotion.

It might not be a bad thing for Darlington. The extra year in the Conference North will give them more time to adjust to getting up to the top Non League flight when they eventually accomplish that. Haven't they already had 4 promotions in 5 years?
