Clubs with a sugar-daddy tend to succeed these days - those with just a band of supporters who do their best to chip in or raise funds stay afloat, get relegated or fail.The odd cup run windfall will help some.

I'd love to see a comparison of income & expenditure accounts between the super Hendon side of the 1960's and today. It would be interesting. It may show what fundamental changes need to happen.
My guess is that non-league football in general is over-paying the players (and probably asking too much of them in terms of time spent training, travelling & playing).

Most in football administration are 65-plus, being the only people with time on their hands and, generally, clubs don't have enough volunteers to do all the things that could or need to be done to make things work financially or operationally.

What's the future for non-league football ?
Limited I'm afraid, if things don't change on a number of fronts.
