Regarding the travelling for next season, based on the current projection there's not a definite like for like, but Plymouth Parkway replaces Merthyr Town, Winchester City replaces Wimborne Town, Bognor replaces Taunton Town, Bracknell replaces Farnborough, Hanwell replaces Kings Langley, and Corinthian-Casuals replaces Chesham United.

Assuming these changes hold, we have a third trip to Devon, and gain a trip to Hampshire and one to West Sussex against trips to South Wales, Dorset, and mid-Somerset. There's not much difference involved in the other three changes, so travelling may be a bit less, unless Truro move to play somewhere in Cornwall, which is a possibility, though a slight one.

We won't know about travelling for next season for certain until the FA announces the make-up of steps 1-6 for 2022-23; this is expected by the end of May.

The improved home gate against Merthyr was chiefly due to the 1972 squad plus family members, together with a number of youth team players, though fewer of these than expected or hoped for. Merthyr brought a good number of supporters.

The 1972 players attending were John Evans (manager), Jimmy Quail (assistant manager), John Swannell, Gary Hand, Peter Deadman, Alan Phillips, Rod Haider, John Connell, Tony Bass, John Baker, Keith Jameson, and Ted Moore. Also attending were Micky Cooper, Micky Cannon, Paul Currie (all occasional players in 1972), and Alan Campbell, who joined us in 1975 and who is a regular at the Dermot Drummy days. Various family members of these players also attended, and I think Peter Anderson (ex-Luton) was also there.

Missing players were Tony Jennings and Bobby Childs, who have both died in the interim. David Hogwood and Arthur Paisley both intended to be present, but had to cry off.

I don't think I've forgotten anybody - my humble apologies to those concerned if I have missed anyone.
