The Future of Non League Football 2012

So after seven weeks we have re-presented our updated manifesto for change.  You can read all of the articles again from the links below.  We have also sent a link to the FA, The Conference, Northern, Southern and Isthmian Leagues to ask for their comment.  But we wont be holding our breath for any feedback.  We all know that sense and football administration are unlikely bedfellows.  Hope you have enjoyed them, and if you think of anything else we have missed, please get in touch.  Same time, same place next year?
