From Farmer's Field To Grade C Listed Ground

Well done Retford United Football Club. A fraught few weeks culminated with yesterday's visitation by a shadowy cartel calling themselves the Ground Grading Committee. Due in no small part to the endeavours of fans, the ground was passed.

Now, not only is the club eligible for promotion to the Conference North, should they succeed in the playoffs (I'm assuming automatic promotion is a stretch too far, sorry) but perhaps more importantly, they are free from the risk of being relegated.

This is a time of joy, not recriminations. Let's just hope lessons that patently were not learned last time are learned this. The fans and the playing staff deserve better.
