Unfortunately the Sporting Blue didn't cover it's costs (not surprisingly if it was 10p, although I only ever remember it being 20p?) and the lack of coverage for local football reflects the decline of newspapers in general. It is a shame because grass roots football in a local paper should get much more coverage, but they run a business at the end of the day so they are in a perfect position to judge. Long live the Alliance League website!

Remember me and mark (mainly me because I can speak to the guy personally) can get your name in the paper!! Ask nicely, don't call me names and you might have a chance Wink

Chris Finn who is the guy in charge of putting mine and Mark's write up in the paper, explained at the start of the season that the coverage would not be up to the standards of yesteryear due to staff cutbacks.

Me and Mark mainly write the piece nowadays for our own website.

The Mercury gets forwarded the same copy, its up to them if they want to use it or how much of it they use.

I would pay £1 a week to buy the sporting blue, i guarentee they would sell thousands and considering the sun and the mercury only cost around 30 - 50p they would be able to do it for around 50p and make loads. even when i wasnt playing i would buy it and i know a lot of people that do the same.

Join this group and lets see if we can make a big thing out of bringing back the sporting blue, don't know if it will do any good but worth a try surely?
