On a rather bleak week in Non League, Tim Fuell and Swampy consider the future of football at this level given more revelations this week of the financial situations of clubs in the top levels of the non league pyramid. 

Returning board member Jeff Banks offers insight into the current plight of Chester FC and brings news of the All-Star charity fundraising match taking place next week. 

Northern Echo Sports Editor Nick Loughlin meanwhile comes on to talk everything Hartlepool United and whilst their tax bill may have been settled from crowdfunding, why he fears the worst for his own beloved club.

Brightening up the show is Cove Rangers manager John Sheran ahead of the Highland Leaguers Scottish FA Cup 5th Round tie with Falkirk. Their greatest cup run, a new ground in the offing and top of the table, things are looking pretty good for Cove.
