    I thought this was going to be Notts with their begging bowls out again!

    I saw about this on the news, never good to see a club go to the wall (unless its Cardiff), good luck getting things sorted.

    Is Ilkeston actually on the Notts/Derbys border?

    The border is the River Erewash which is on the outskirts of Ilson. I was brought up at Ilkeston Junction and can vouch for there being more Reds

    You cross the railway bridge, you're crossing the border. Like Long Eaton, Ilkeston is a Derbyshire town that secretly wants to be in Nottinghamshire.

    people like murder are narrow minded there is a group of young player that are still at ilkeston because kev wilson set up an academy that hopefully will be the future of the club when its eventually bought, 12 prospective buyers at last count.this is grass roots english football that is greatly needed,this comunity day is to raise funds to get this new club up and running.so it should not be about who follows who but helping the future of football in this county thanks

    I spent many an afternoon on the old Manor Ground and played on the New Manor Ground long before Ilkeston Town so i was sorry to see the club fold. Having said that they haven't been particularly careful who they've allowed to run the club in recent years (one Mr Whyte springs to mind) but as hammerman says this is the grass roots and a club with the tradition of Ilkeston shouldn't be allowed to die.

    Don't forget the great Bert Bowery started off at Ilkeston before leaving for Worksop and finally achieving glory with his 2 (yes TWO) starts at the City Ground.

    I thought Long Eaton was in Nottinghamshire ... I could have sworn the D*rbyshire sign is after Long Eaton on the A52 ...

    Nope. Some Long Eaton residents get a bit narked by the constant assumption that Long Eaton is in Notts. Doesn't help that the postcode and phone number are Nottinghamshire. And that the postal town is Nottingham.

    What it would be to be a Derby fan there. lol lol

    The Nottinghamshire postcode and number is beneficial to house prices

    Good luck with this; its always a shame when clubs go to the wall so i hope you manage to sort something out. It is crazy though that the courts allow clubs like pompey with debts of over 100 million and debts to HMRC of near 10 million to carry on trading yet a club with 50,000 owed to HMRC has to cease. BONKERS!
