Conference Round Up

24 April 2015

One of the most exciting finishes to a Vanarama Conference season climaxes on Saturday with plenty of issues still to be settled.

Not least, of course, the most important one of all, being the actual title and automatic promotion to the Sky Bet League Two. BT Sport will come live from The Hive where current leaders Barnet will be looking to win against Gateshead, and if they do that it doesn’t matter how second-placed Bristol Rovers do against Alfreton Town. 

But BT Sport will have cameras at the Memorial Ground as well, so these two games will be well covered as the excitement builds. BT Sport will also keep everyone up to date with the goals as they go in from all the other matches - which all kick-off at 5.15pm incidentally - especially those involving Eastleigh, Forest Green Rovers and Macclesfield Town, who will be striving to make the play-off semi-finals along with Grimsby Town, who are already assured of a top five berth. 

Alfreton certainly won’t be doing Bristol Rovers any favours as they need to better Welling United’s result to avoid joining Nuneaton Town, Dartford and AFC Telford United in dropping out of non-League football’s top tier. 

The Wings host Southport at Park View Road boosted by the appointment of Loui Fazakerley as their new permanent manager. Last weekend’s results saw both Barnet and Rovers held to away draws at Kidderminster Harriers and Dover Athletic respectively. 

Who comes up as champions of the Vanarama Conference North also goes to the final day, with Barrow AFC holding a crucial two-point advantage over AFC Fylde. 

The Bluebirds make the long trek to the east coast to take on Lowestoft Town, while the Coasters host Gloucester City. 

Bromley clinched the Vanarama Conference South title last Saturday after a 3-0 home win in front of almost 3,000 fans against Westonsuper-Mare.
