I left Northfield in 1974. I left Stephenson Hall to go to Northfield (new school) in 1971. I left Billingham to join the army in 1975, came back in 1979 and haven't left since (except to go to Wembley a few times and Eindhoven once)and I'll be buried there.

Northern league = sluggers league, 20-30 years ago good standard.

Even the Unibond or whatever its changed its name to these days is very very poor, the moneys just isnt there, lads who never made the pro grade who would previously tried their luck getting up the pyramid go and get jobs nowadays, almost anyone can get a game for the likes of synners etc

(this wasnt meant as a personal dig at you lisbon im just sick of people telling me the northern league is a good standard)

Lisbonlegend Posted on 12/01/2011 01:41
Anyone from Billingham Post on Here...

It depends what you are comparing it to really. What level do you/have you played at Darko and who for?

darko_pancev Posted on 12/01/2011 01:47
Anyone from Billingham Post on Here...

quite a lot higher than the northern league Lisbon [^] even if i had only played sunday league I would still say its a poor standard. I remember watching an ex hartlepool player bobby Veart playing Northern league when I was a kid, he was frightening, thats when it was a good standard, went to watch synners a couple of years ago and i couldnt believe how poor it was, lads wearing hairbands and cycling shorts, no organisation, nothing positionally i could teach a team of 12 year olds (and have) to follow tactics better than what I saw. Rant over

I'm not from Billingham by the way but have some good mates who are [^] had the pleasure of the cons club a few times, and the pub near the roundabout that was full on a sunday night 10-15 years ago?

Lisbonlegend Posted on 12/01/2011 01:53
Anyone from Billingham Post on Here...

How much higher, come on spill the beans.[;)]. I can't really compare it to 20-30 years ago but I enjoyed playing in the Northern League, more for the competitiveness than anything. There's only one striker I played against that I thought was brilliant, some decent strikers but only 1 striker I thought was a cut above. I suppose that speaks volumes really and money definitely plays a massive part in the Northern League!

darko_pancev Posted on 12/01/2011 02:02
Anyone from Billingham Post on Here...

theres a lad who played Northern league, probably about your age Lisbon from what I can gather, Steve Salvin, played Unibond and Northern league, Hartlepool lad and related to the Brackstones, anyway I watched him play on numerous occasions and he had it, could easily have played for pools, darlo at the time, I know there were players not at his standard at both clubs and I think he's the last one I saw in either of those leagues who I felt could have made it.

Watched a Synners lad last year called Iley or something like that, little spoilt brat with an over inflated ego, I left after 45 minutes.

A friend of mine was / is a lower league scout if your wondering why, not me scouting

Lisbonlegend Posted on 12/01/2011 02:11
Anyone from Billingham Post on Here...

Not heard of Steve Salvin. Even the few ex pros I played against I wasn't overly fussed with, Nicky Mohan was decent but not out of this world although Neil Maddison scored a 30 yard volley against us mind.[8)]

Not seen Synners play for a few years, lad I know called Andy Harbron is captain, used to work with his dad aswell and Bobby Scaife. Another mate of mine who I played with at Wolviston is captain of Billingham Town, Alan Cossavella. Who does your mate scout for?

darko_pancev Posted on 12/01/2011 02:56
Anyone from Billingham Post on Here...

Got quite a few mates who are scouts Lisbon, the one in question on that day was scouting for Notts County, one of my best mates is a scout for Aston Villa.

Know Bobby Scaife quite well, his young lad was a decent player too.

PS - I'll let Nicky Mohan know hwo good an impression you made on him [^]

Yeah, Nicky Scaife, he worked at my place aswell with Bobby. Bobby was shift foreman and Nicky a process operator.

Haha, I'm sure Nicky will be over the moon.[:D]. He scored the winner against us in an FA cup tie at Thornaby one year, a header from a corner. I wasn't marking him mind.[8)]

Haha, Cossa is rubbish, [:P] I used to torture him at Wolvo. Having said that, he was probably the most naturally fit player I've ever played alongside. The lad is made of rubber.

Anyone from Billingham Post on Here...

Cossa was part of the Wynyard Sunday pub team that marched to the top division.
He's a good player but not great.

Terry Gaffney was a great player who never made it. He was running rings around people at 50 on the forum 5 a side pitch.
