Notes
If you are looking for any "see below for notes" you need to visit the relevant page in our
A to Z history. It is usually about missing attendances but sometimes there are additional (and even amusing) footnotes.

Make a note of the team name and find them on the page linked to above.

If you can help with any missing information (or have a correction to make) I would love to hear from you on info@bfcsa.co.uk

Thanks, John Snow, Website Editor.
