The Club: 

Only 13 years ago, Telford United FC were liquidated with debts of 4 million after finishing 12th in the Conference North. Fortunately, the newly reformed AFC Telford United, which started life in the Northern Division 1 (Tier 8), took to life like a duck to water and made it to the National League Premier only four years ago.

Disappointingly, their position in the country’s top division of non league only lasted a season and they have been struggling in the NLN for the past two seasons. Finishing 18th in 2016 and 17th in 2017 after a succession of managers and players. They look ahead to the new season with renewed optimism and have made a number of positive signings, including former County striker John Marsden, who made several appearances for them at the end of last season on loan.

The Ground: 

The New Bucks Head stadium is only 13 years old and was originally built for the former Telford United. It’s a smart little ground and is capable of a decent atmosphere on its day, something which County fans will be aware of after their 1-0 win there two years ago under Neil Young.
