Yeah.............. the mighty Eagles are my own passion (although I moved away from Bedford many years ago) - they came so close to being admitted to the Football League in the 1960s (over 18,000 of us crammed in to The Eyrie to see them lose 0-3 to eventual winners Everton in the FA Cup 4th Round in 65/66).

What a Southern League it was back then.......... Bedford, Wimbledon, Hereford, Kettering, Cambridge Utd, Weymouth were all superb, and regularly reached the 3rd Round or better in the Cup.

Bradford Park Avenue but I suppose it'll be a while before we grace the league again

I love non league football.

It's really the only place where you feel that the player are still playing for their shirt, and not their pocket!!!

Walthamstow Avenue from 1980 until their demise in 1988, when they ceased to exist. Technically they became part of Redbridge Forest which became part of Dagenham & Redbridge, but for all of us they disappeared right then. Green Pond Road became a housing estate.

A team briefly reappeared a few years ago under the name but couldn't find a pitch in Walthamstow, playing in Waltham Abbey instead. I don't think they're active any more...

Never heard of them to be honest.
Walthamstow is in east London, isn't it?
I think near Leytonstone.
Layton Orient is the local team if I am not mistaken.

Yes, north west of Leytonstone, north of Leyton, east of Tottenham.

They won a couple of Amateur Cups back in the 50s at the peak of the amateur game, took Man U to an FA Cup replay.

The mess of non-league football in the borough of Waltham Forest is just too sad. Leyton-Wingate had a weird on-off relationship and I think re-formed as Leyton FC; Pennant who played at Wadham Lodge I think merged with Leyton and became Waltham Forest FC? I'm lost. Been too long out of the loop. We used to have four non-league clubs and now we've got one. I think the demographic shift in the borough didn't help. Maybe now there's some eastern Europeans moved in there's more of a market for the game. If I won the lottery I'd buy some land, rebuild "Green Pond Road" and try to do an AFC Wimbledon.

Wycombe Wanderers nearly made it to the Conference this year. They certainly deserved to. I hope to join you all next year, if you'll have me.

I speak too on behalf of my son, who lives in Norway and who flies across to watch WW get cleaned up every once in a while. Why he bothers, I've no idea.
