Advantages Covers pretty much every league
Disadvantages is quite expensive for a paper
The Non-League paper has been in publication for a few years now as its onto issue number 201, so its been published every Sunday for 201 weeks, which for a Football paper which doesn't cover The Premiership. Proving there is life outside of The Premiership and top league football. And now on the back of the papers success they have recently started publishing the paper on a Friday to give a build up to the weekends non-league football this paper cost £1.This paper not only covers all the major Non-League's from Conference, Dr. Martin, Unibond and Ryman football leagues but there feeder leagues and county leagues and gives the most comprehensive results service possible.
Priced at £1.20 its not cheap but for that price you are getting over 50 pages packed with football reports, results, fixtures and news from all the leagues including the football leagues in Wales.I have been getting this paper every sunday since it started and its been improving every season, to now include a small pull out on league football.
This paper gives the non-league game and grass roots football its own voice in the press as lets face it the only time these teams are going to make the national headlines is if they happen to get a big game in the FA Cup like Farnborough Town against Arsenal last season and Scarborough against Chelsea this season when they spend the next few weeks with blanket coverage and then when the game has finished they are not mentioned again and the papers go back to Premiership Premiership Premiership.WIthout The Non League Paper I for one wouldnt have know too much about the future restructuring of Non League football which in my opinion has a knock on effect to the leagues above.
The paper keeps running through the summer months when there is very little or no football being played which means the paper reduces in pages but they make up for the lack of football by doing reviews of the season gone and predictions of the coming season. The paper is also the only place that you can hear about the England, Wales, Scotland and Irish Non League teams.
