So here's the lineup at this point:

Barrow
Bromley
Chesterfield
Dagenham & Redbridge
Dover
Eastleigh
Halifax
Gateshead
Hartlepool
Havant & Waterlooville
Leyton Orient
Maidenhead
Maidstone
Salford
Solihull
Wrexham

Plus one of: Morecambe or Barnet
Plus five of: Tranmere, Sutton, Boreham Wood, Aldershot, Fylde, Ebbsfleet
Plus one of: Harrogate, Brackley, Kidderminster, Stockport, Chorley, Bradford PA
Plus one of: Dartford, Chelmsford, Hampton & Richmond, Hemel Hempstead, Braintree, Truro

Almost May and barely half next year's lineup confirmed...

As a Tranmere fan whose local team is Truro that list seems seems truly bizarre. When I was doing A levels Tranmere were pushing for the Premiership and my class mate was playing in the south western league which was predominantly a Cornish league for Truro in front of about 30 people a week

Everyone surely wants the teams that will offer the least threat to staying up or promotion, so ideally the smaller clubs promoted please.

Morecambe would also massively struggle as they're knackered financially and have no fans. But it would be the most local derby we've had in years.

Although I'd quite like BPA to come up, mainly because it will be one of the great derbies at this level- only 5 miles apart, we used to get 20 odd thousand at these games in the League sometimes, I won't complain if Stockport make it. In fact, I think they will. They've been pretty useless in the Conference North, truth be told, and they've drifted into the play-offs this season, but now that they're in, that BIG CLUB mindset, that we all have in the Brotherhood, will work it's magic for them. :bdick:

Not sure Morecambe’s attendances would shrink much more than they already have done... they only get around 1,000 home fans as it is, and I can’t imagine their budget is very big. They seem like the sort of club that would fit straight back into the NL set up.

Bolded up who'd personally like to see down here for a variety of reasons, decent teams / fanbases or new grounds / potential good days out.

For me:

Barnet to come down
Fylde/Tranmere to go up
Kidderminster from the North
Dartford/Truro from the South

In the apocalyptic event we are still here, it seems our support will still be unwavering. Club have just passed 3000 season ticket sales, compared to 2200 at the same stage last season.

Far from confident Rovers will go up,so assuming we're still around...

Plus one of: Morecambe or Barnet Either fine, think we've never played Barnet and Morecambe's a decent away day.
Plus five of: Tranmere, Sutton, Boreham Wood, Aldershot, Fylde, Ebbsfleet One of those two to go up if not us. Missed the Fylde games this season, so would like to see next season.
Plus one of: Harrogate, Brackley, Kidderminster, Stockport, Chorley, Bradford PA Losing two fixtures that draw decent crowds, so Stockport would compensate a bit. Otherwise, anyone but Brackley, too much in the middle of nowhere, however nice a side they are.
Plus one of: Dartford, Chelmsford, Hampton & Richmond, Hemel Hempstead, Braintree, Truro One of that pair, slight edge to Hemel Hempstead as have friends living nearby who can be dragged to the game.

We have indeed never played you in our history as we missed each other at the end of 14/15 with us coming up from the National League and you coming down from League 2. You were in the old old Division 2 when we first came up in 1991 and you didn't descend to League 2 level until 2014/15.

Badly need Tranmere to get promoted now, don't fancy having a crack at the top 7 next season with Barnet and Tranmere both down here.

Allen's clearly shown he knows how to get Barnet winning games, they'd be mad not to keep him on for next season where I expect them to be around the top 7.
