The Opposition

• The Whites play their home fixtures at The Raymond McEnhill Stadium. 

• In the summer of 2009 the club faced bankruptcy and in early September they entered administration. They were fined and deducted points before being demoted two divisions in May 2010 due to a breach of Conference rules. 

• The club didn’t stay in the Southern premier League for long clinching promotion via the play-offs on penalties against Hednesford.
