Isn’t this the club where Windass started his career? Not making a case for him, just saying...

Shame. A village club, much like Histon used to be. (Are they still going?)

Mind you, going to the wall for £7,500? You'd have thought the few fans they have could have raised that between them. Would probably only put off the inevitable though.

Histon are still going, but they're now in the Eastern Counties League Premier.

After finishing 3rd in the Conference in 2008-09 (when, of course, they were inspired by 20 goals from Jack Midson; that was the year we missed out on the playoffs due to the fax machine), they've been relegated four times and are now in Tier 9...….although they're looking good for promotion this season!

They never should have let him go.

A name that always brings back fond memories, as they were the team my hometown team Whitby beat in the FA Vase final at Wembley. Still one of the best days and nights out ever after all these years.

I do hope they get back going again, very sad!

I was told that's the amount Paul Pogba earns in 3 1/2 minutes. which is kinda insane

You'd think a charitable, multi billion pounds club would have stepped in for the greater good of English football. Cheap publicity for them, NF get to stay in business.

Maybe the people at NF didn't ask about. Bit of a shame I suppose.

Its obscenely wrong that the FA seem to do FA when grass roots clubs go bust....a bit of redistribution of some of the £ washing around the upper levels would go a long way to a fairer set up in english football....im working up in skeggy this weekend, the sad story of nffc is all over the local tv programmes....it was pointed out halifax, scarborough and other football clubs have gone bust in recentish times, but, usually down to the fan base, have regrouped reinvented themselves and reappeared and are doing ok, albeit at a lower level that before

....wasnt there a whip round for an fa or some other football association official arranged a while back with clubs 'asked' (!) To contribute? ... one 'donation' into the pot would probably cover all of the amount that caused nfufc to fold?... Priorities aint right from those who are supposed to oversee the running of football in England

Tbf, North Ferriby have been sh*t or bust for a while so with the owner pulling the funding it was always going to happen.

It could be us as well if we didn't have an owner funding the difference.

Id guess there are many non league, one or two league ones too, in very similar situations as nfufc ....there for the grace of god etc applies
