As these things do a quick search led to more searches and a fact that I probably knew but hadn’t really appreciated and is probably worth repeating.
Since automatic promotion to the football league was introduced in 1986/87 we are the ONLY one of the former non-league clubs to have got promoted in the first 20 years and sustained our existence as a football league side.
That is some achievement and looking at the list of promoted clubs it actually made me proud of what we have done despite everything.
I’ve included the link for anyone interested but if anyone fancies testing their memory, as of next season we will be joined by 11 clubs (I think) who weren’t in the 92 when automatic promotion was introduced.
