PEACEHAVEN AND TELSCOMBE
The Ryman Premier Division side, currently placed in a respectable 16th position and ten points away from the relegation zone, have recently launched a campaign named 'Stand or Fall'. The club need to raise £15,000 for necessary ground improvements to stay playing football at Step 3 of the non-league ladder next season. P&T have had two successive promotions in as many seasons and are planning to erect two 50-seat stands on the north side of
the ground and a seven step standing terrace on the east side. The cost to complete these works is estimated to be around £30,000 of
which half is expected to be provided by The Football Foundation.
To raise the money the club are offering the chance for fans and local businesses to sponsor a seat in the stand for £200. Each seat will have the name of the sponsor on it for the lifetime of the stand. Check out the peacehavenfc.co.uk website for more details.
NORTH GREENFORD UNITED & AFC HAYES
The two Middlesex clubs are in the relegation zone of the Evo Stik Division One (Central) division with a big gap of nine points to 20th placed Beaconsfield SYCOB. AFC have two games in hand with United five games but the two clubs only have three wins each in 25 games and 28 games played. Barring a remarkable turn in form it looks like both will be back playing at Step 5 of the non-league pyramid next season.
North Greenford United were the Combined Counties Champions in 2009/10 moving up to the Southern League Division One where they have been placed 18th. 18th, 19th and 20th.
AFC Hayes (formerly Brook House FC) have been members of the Southern League Division One since 2006 playing in the South & West and Midland/Central division. They have finished 18th, 14th, 9th. 21st, 19th, 10th, 15th and 18th.
AFC host Royston Town (7th place) tonight before travelling to table topper's Kettering Town on Saturday. North Greenford United have two highly important home games against Beaconsfield SYCOB on Saturday and then Leighton Town (19th) next Tuesday evening. If they could win these two games there could be some light at the end of the tunnel!
It's looking likely The Bees will be playing in League Two at The Hive next season. They are top of the Vanarama Conference table on 68 points from 33 games played. Their nearest rivals are Bristol Rovers in second place on 61 points from 33 games and third placed Macclesfield Town on 60 points from 32 played. Martin Allen's side are the top scorers in the division by a big margin having hit the back of the net 72 times with the nearest other team being Eastleigh on 56 goals. I'm sure every Barnet fan will say it's not all over just yet with Rovers and Town looking to close the gap and still many games to be played with some twists and turns along the way.
Barnet's next game is a Valentine's day trip to Wrexham with Bristol Rovers going to fourth placed Grimsby Town on the same day the result of which could have a real bearing on whether the side relegated from the football league last season goes up automatically or qualifies for the play-offs. Macclesfield host Altrincham tonight in a local derby game before travelling to Southport on Saturday. Their clash at Moss Rose with Bristol Rovers on Saturday 28th March is also a massive game which Barnet fans will be hoping is a draw.
Bristol Rovers lead the way in one table being the average attendance figures. They have averaged 6,040 people in their league games compared to Barnet's 1,716 and Macclesfield's 1,520. Alfreton Town are bottom on an average of 622. Rovers figure is just below that of their 2013/14 league season which was 6,424.
