Is it this coming season that Bishop Auckland FC will celebrate their 100th season in the Northern Football League?
Could this be a world record: could any other football club have spent such a long time in the very same division?

Good point Mut, and we do have a very very long history.....never needed to fold/die and piggy back another club i.e Spenny TOWN

Lets hope in the next 100 years we will once again be playing higher :wink:

Still celebrate 100 years of northern league membership - just not 100 consecutive years.

It's all about the wording used.

I think you're right, it IS all about the wording used. I'm not sure that "celebrate" is something that would be agreed upon by all involved at the club given their penchant for promotion applications.

I think what most Bishop Auckland fans will be celebrating is the fact that they narrowly avoided playing in the 2nd division of said league.

I happen to agree with the post about anniversaries being split into two marriages. The longevity of any club playing non league football is great to see but who cares what league it's in? A celebration that Bishop Auckland have spent 100 years in the northern league says more about the league than it does the club and would be a bit cringe worthy.

Now celebrating anniversaries of the league itself is something that I personally would get fully behind........here's to many more years of Northern league action :D
