the positive side of winding up


Jul 14, 2009
18 months ago in the midst of our worries about the Blues and their future I posted about my local town club, the then Ilkeston Town (Conference North) who were wound up in the autumn of 2010. Happier news now! After reconstituting as Ilkeston FC and winning an academy league last year, they have today won the play-off final to go up from Evostik First South to Evostik Premier - ie one division below where they were before winding-up. This is due to the incredible dedication from the management team of Kevin Wilson and Darren Caskey. The future looks financially secure and it proves that the AFC Winbledon, Aldershot etc tradition lives on! Let's hope the Blues are clear of that now, but it proves that the end doesn't have to mean the end in the end!
