Conference Premier: the first 10 games

Conference Premier: the first 10 games

As the Conference Premier reached the 10 game mark yesterday evening, I though it’d be worth looking at the data to see how each club has performed so far.

Conference Premier 2013/14 – Attack & Defence Graphics

I thought I’d resurrect an old tradition of using our attack and defence graphics to compare each club’s performance, starting with the Skrill Premier.

I’m on holiday at the moment and therefore only catching up intermittently with football news, but one pleasing item to eventually catch my eye was BT Sport’s agreement to screen some Conference games next season.
