I was just wondering what Nationwide clubs are located in or around London?
Queens Park Rangers
Wimbledon (just kidding)
Luton (sort of)
Some of this depends on how you determine where London ends and "the reset of England" begins.
Here is a neat website that helps:
Also there's Watford, and Gillingham is nearer London that Luton.
Right about Watford. I guess I was thinking that Luton has been establishing itself as more of a London satellite town (pumping up the airport as an alternative to Gatwick and Heathrow). I didn't know that anyone really considered Gillingham a true "bedroom" community of Greater London. But I don't know much about that kind of thing, being from the states.
Also, Dagenham and Redbridge, Barnet and Stevenage are technically Nationwide clubs, being in Conference, and they are usually considered part of greater London (Stevenage to a lesser extent, I imagine).
Also Gravesend isn't that far away in the Conference. I quite like the Conference it's more down to earth than the pro game, and I follow Accrington in that league aswell
Well half the sides in the Conference now operate on a full time basis. Gravesend not being one of them, indeed have recently signed a player from one of the feeders as he didn't want to go full time.
Gillingham is quite close, but not a London club. Our closest rival is Millwall.
Closest yes, but we still don't care about you
I forgot to mention AFC Wimbledon. At the rate they are going, they will be in conference in another two or three seasons.
Conference club Barnet is also considered in London.
A few years a go I lived in London for part of the year for work. I never had to worry about if I could catch a match on the weekend.
Yep, Barnet is at the very Northern edge of London, the last stop on the Northern Line.
Really, the Bees are the only London club that really matter. Why people pay those inflated prices to watch Arsenal or Chelsea, I will never understand.
Actually what about Reading aren't they in London area.
And your all forgot Leyton O they are from London.
I lived in a burough of London called Enfield, they had a small ground and club. This was 6 years ago so they might have fallen out of conference, but they were in it then.
Enfiled split up in 2 teams as Wimbledon did.
Enfield haven't been in the Conference that recently, got promoted to the then Alliance Premier League in 81, won it in 83 and 86, relegated in 90.
Yeah Enfield were until theyre split one of the most winning sides in the Conference.
I'm a Canadian who supporters Watford, a club in the First Division.
I'll bve moving to London next month, and I'm thinking of adopting Fisher Athletic as my "local" non-league side.
They call themselves "the only Doc Martens team in London".
Fisher atheletic are nt the team 2 watch in that league salisbury beat them something like 8-1
Reading? Gillingham? Wycombe? London clubs? what are you lot on about
no, your closest rivals are the "travellers" situated on your training ground.
Wimbledon is in London (Greater)
So is WATFORD , Luton town is as they are our main rivals both Watford and Luton are on the fringe of Greater London, so they would be. Yay for Watford!
Wimbledon is in Lonodn, but FC Wimbledon play in Milton Keynes which is in the arse end of nowhere.
It could be worse. It could be Bristol.
