Absolutely wonderful piece. I really enjoy non-league football now, if I'm not on the games local to me I'll likely be found watching them. What's great to also see is gates increase for them when the bigger local clubs (Pompey, Southampton) are playing away, with stands packed with young fans. There's something you just don't get in a Premier League seat on a match day that you get locally.Nice piece by Oliver Holt on attending Stockport County games with his father, who has just died:

Brings home just what it would mean if non-league clubs were forced to fold by Covid.
