MyFootballClub, the revolutionary website that launched earlier this Spring, is preparing to announce that it has agreed in principle to purchase a non-league football club.
According to The Independent newspaper, MyFootballClub will announce that an agreement has been made with a club from the BlueSquare Premier (aka Conference National, which is one league below League Two in England). The newspaper dropped a major hint by mentioning that the club in question has never played in the top four divisions of English football before and has aspirations of being promoted to League Two.
That rules out Cambridge United, Aldershot, Torquay, Exeter, Kidderminster, Northwich Victoria, Oxford, Rushden & Diamonds, Halifax and York. All of those clubs have played in the Football League before.
That means that one of the following clubs is the mystery team that MyFootballClub will purchase: Altrincham, Burton Albion, Crawley Town, Droylsden, Ebbsfleet United, Farsley Celtic, Forest Green Rovers, Grays Athletic, Histon, Salisbury City, Stafford Rangers, Stevenage Borough, Weymouth or Woking.
So which club is it? We don’t know. MyFootballClub has done an excellent job at keeping the secret under wraps, but despite the fact that they’ve been in discussions with Cambridge United and Halifax Town – among others – it can’t be one of those clubs if the major hint dropped by The Independent is true.
