It has been a tough start for Durham City.
The first two games showed promise but....
Willington 0-1 Durham
Durham 0-0 Bedlington
Durham 0-2 Thornaby
Redcar 4-0 Durham
Easington 7-0 Durham
Durham 0-3 Chester le street
Durham 0-5 Seaham Red Star (FA Vase)
Durham 0-1 Esh Winning
Goals for 1 Goals Against 22
In truth we scored first and then conceded 22!!
I have attended most of these Durham games and I will not question the effort or commitment
of the current band of players. They do truly give their best and I for one appreciate that.
However you need to score goals if you want to win a football game.
That is why top strikers cost top dollar in the highest game and so it permeates down through all
the divisions, all levels of football. Goalscorers are truly sought after.
We saw it last season when we depended upon young Bradley Hird too much. As soon as he transferred
to Shildon - and good luck to the young man - the goals for Durham dried up somewhat for the management
team at the time.
The current team have been unlucky in many ways. Often, in the games I have attended, they have had good chances
to take the lead but missed out.
The question is when will Durham score next???
Answers on a postcard to Hall Lane, Willington??

To beat Willington only a few weeks ago shows they have potential. We have played them twice in the last 5 days and they will be top 5.

Evening guys. As you are aware I am shaving my head and getting my chest and legs waxed to raise some funds for the team. The original date was the 15th of September at the home game against West Allotment Celtic but as west allotment are playing away against Bishop Auckland in the vase I’ll now be shaving my hair off at the next home game which is against Northallerton town TUESDAY 11th of September at half time. 7:30 kick off. I will then get my chest and legs waxed at the next home game which I believe is the 29/9/18. Hope to see as many people there as we can. anyone who hasn’t sponsored don’t worry you can put a bit of spare change in on the night and shave a bit of hair off feel free to join me on the pitch at half time and support pushing a local club forward. Thanks Peter Wakefield goalkeeper TAKEN FROM DURHAM CITY FC FACEBOOK...

I thought 'avoid the trapdoor' would be their next goal & it's not looking too great at the moment!

In your opinion Windy how many clubs will be relegated from NL Div 2 . Will the folding of Team North and Blyth not affect the relegation situation. If 1 goes up from NL1 that's leaving 17 with only 1 promoted from NL2 taking it back to the 18 its at now. if they promote 3 from NL2 to fill NL1 then will it be reprieves in NL2 or more promoted from feeder leagues?

On another thread Windy wrote:

The FA have taken control of promotion & relegation across steps 5 & 6.
Their is no link between the FA potentially reprieving a club at the bottom of NL1 & it then corresponding a reprieve to a club at the bottom of the NL2.
The standardised rules state that the bottom 2 clubs in each step 5 league will be relegated! Obviously the Northern League is now running with 18 clubs & the Hellenic league with 19. The bottom clubs will definitely be relegated & it’s left to the league committees discretion to decide if 2 clubs will be relegated(I doubt that they will relegate 2 clubs).
Promotion from step 6 will be the 19 champions & the 9 best runners up. Any extra promotions will be offered to the next best runners up. The SWPL can exclude themselves from the automotic promotion, because of their locality! So only 18 champions will likely be promoted & this increases the promotion for runners up. With the 3 extra places now at step 5(2 in the NL & 1 in the HL) I believe that 18 champions & 13 runners up will be promoted!
As for relegation from step 6 the bottom 2 clubs from each league will be relegated & replaced by a maximum of 38 step 7 clubs. But not all step 6 leagues have 20 teams & this is where it’s down to the league committees discretion. But because the NL2 does have 20 clubs, then the bottom 2 clubs will be relegated!

Far to early to say who will be in danger tbh. Look at the start Stockton had last year in division 1 . Having played Brandon they are not far off being a decent side . Goal scoring is the problem looking at our game the other week .

With the reduced league sizes, we are almost at the 1/4 of the season point. Brandon have a single point & will need a complete change of luck. Because they could be cast adrift in the next couple of months. I genuinely feel sorry for Durham, because they have a great history & unless they can very quickly secure a new home. Their downward spiral will continue & whether they survive will come into question. Especially if they get relegated & that looks more likely at the moment than not.
