Long term supporters of ‘The Seadogs’ will have heard all sorts of financial promises in the past and have suffered all types of disappointment. They will remember some great Wembley occasions and now, at least the club is run by real supporters. They are back in the Northern Premier League and their dedicated club supporters are steadily taking the club back to where they believe it belongs.
