The 41 FC's 2012/2013

Aldershot's Jimmy Melia (top right), taken from Football Star Parade 1969/70.
Twenty-four clubs visited since January 2011; seventeen more clubs to visit in 2012/2013. Then it will all be over. Unlike last season, there is no change in the number of clubs in Hampshire from overall level 10 and up (assuming Pompey survive the week). The only changes concern the various leagues and divisions that clubs will be competing in - up one level go Saints, Gosport Borough, Winchester City, Hartley Wintney and AFC Portchester; whilst it is down the slippery snake for Pompey...

Eversley have merged with California (no, not the American state) to create the only name change for this season. They will be visited in due course, along with sixteen others over the next nine months.

The current full list of Level 1-10 Hampshire sides is typed out below. Those I have already visited are in bold.
