Why would anyone be jealous of AC London?

You've finished in a reasonable position in the first season at step 6, been involved in a number of unsavoury incidents and shunted off into a groundshare. The fact that you managed to avoid controversy in the second part of the season is progress of sorts but isn't something to shout about. I also understand your manager had his BBC award withheld because of the club's behaviour.

I've no ill-feeling towards the club, indeed they payed some decent stuff at times when I saw them, but cannot see what on earth there is for anyone to be jealous of.

...Not only that chairman manager is only 20 years old- something unheard of at senior football...


Oh, please. Young people getting involved in non-league football was happening long before AC London came along.

I was elected onto the committee at Egham Town at the age of 12 and took on the role of Reserve Team Secretary at 14. That wouldn't happen now, as the regulations stop anyone under 16 from participating in open-age football, but my salient point stands, in so far as the Chairman/Manager of AC London is not unique. He is a particularly specific example of a young person in a high-profile role.

To wit; he is not the only Chairman/Manager to grace the NLS, nor is he the youngest person to get involved in running a club. (Nor am I, as it goes, but I am proud of the small contribution I have managed to make to football.)

I've no axe to grind with AC London and I wasn't surprised to see them in CCL 1. I hope that the club can settle down there and get through all its matches without an abandonment. After all, these are rarer than hen's teeth for most clubs...

Note: the original was edited in the hope that, by doing so, it might make a little more sense than my original comment.

In the 21st century has there been a younger manager or chairman in non league football? From my research and 29 years in the system, I haven't come across anyone however seems like you chaps have more experience than myself and have been involved in the game since your birth so I am sure you can shed some light on that....

The word uneducated springs to mind... The powers that be allowed AC London to make a mockery of the system; the plain and simple fact is AC London were not participating in any league last season yet the FA mysteriously put them in the Kent League for the 2015/16 season.

Sam McNiel at Kent Football United was only 19 or 20 i believe.
As regard the participation of A.C.London in the Kent Invicta league they were given the placement by the FA appeals system. I presume because the league was not up to its full compliment and they had a decent stadium to play at.

It would only be a positive to have a 20-year-old manager if he was capable of controlling his players. Clearly he has struggled with that. So excuse me if I withhold the applause,

Is Tommy not 16 yet?

Also down on the south coast a well grounded Worthing Chairman is only 22 and will be in Ryman Premier next season.

AC London restored into RPM Records Division One Cup
The League was advised yesterday by the Football Association that AC London and an individual connected with the club had won their appeals against the decisions of Surrey County FA, following the abandonment before the start of their RPM Records Division One Challenge Cup match on Wednesday 14 September 2016.
AC London were separately found guilty by the League’s Management Committee of causing the match to be abandoned and the tie had been awarded to Banstead. In the light of the FA decision, AC London immediately made it clear they would appeal against the League’s ruling as well and, given the earlier FA decision, it seemed likely that they would win again. Even if they didn’t, the competition may well have run out of time and would probably have had to be abandoned for the season.
In the light of that and in the interests of all the other clubs still in the competition, the Board saw no alternative but to restore AC London to the competition. As a result, AC London will now be at home on Tuesday 28 January to Banstead Athletic, with whom they ground share, in the 1st Round of the competition, with Chessington & Hook United to play the winners in the 2nd Round as soon as is practicable.


Think January 28th should read February 28th

The Combined Counties League have heard nothing about the appeal. The club told the CCL that they were going to appeal. As part of the appeals process, the club must inform the league formally that they’ve appealed. This hasn’t happened & the club only had 14 days to appeal. They have missed that 14 day deadline. If the club have appealed & obviously they’ve failed to CC the CCL in the email to the FA. Then the CCL can argue that the club has failed to follow the required process. The CCL will release any news on there website, as & when they have it.

The appeal by AC London to the FA is going ahead although no date has yet been specified. As a result I should not say much more than that at the moment although the club's failure to abide by the relevant part of the rule that requires a copy of the appeal to be sent to the competition (CCL in this case) was pointed out to the FA. The FA though have decided that it doesn't matter and that the appeal will proceed.
