It's still only January but Tim Fuell and Swampy are discussing promotion from two very different perspectives.
First up Morpeth Town Chairman Ken Beattie and his sleep-depriving decision to be made on whether to take promotion to the Northern Premier League and risk the demise of the club he loves and has built over years as a community hub or stay in the Northern League and risk the wrath of the FA in not accepting promotion which appears to be mandatory for those finishing in the promotion spots with a suitable ground. A very interesting debate.

Next Ben Connell, who started a team with his mates and now finds himself as manager of the side being hailed the first to be promoted in the football pyramid. 17 wins from 17 for Colne Athletic in Division Three of the Essex and Suffolk Border League Division Three and still 5 games to play with the title potentially wrapped up this weekend.

Finally, a chat with former Molesey, Basingstoke Town, Crawley Town, Whitehawk and now Eastbourne Borough FC midfielder Sergio Torres on why a documentary is being made on is life. From an Argentinean brick factory to Old Trafford, his is a story of boyhood dreams and self-belief, the crowdfunding project to make the documentary is well advanced but still needs pledges to make it happen.
