I enjoy this series too, but when I finish these puzzles I never have a sense that the author really knows his subject. Not sure just why that is.

I clearly did not understand the subtlities of the English Premier League - my apologies to Mr. Garrybl for the egregious error and thanks for his catching it (and the editor who was able to quickly fix it when I was otherwise indisposed).
And thanks to all of you for your nice comments. I am sure we will be venturing somewhere new next month.

If I remember it right Halifax Town were a football league team who either went bust or got demoted out of the league (imagine if that could happen to the Pittsburgh Pirates!).
They are now part of the Northern Premier League -- and not the Premier League.

To complicate matters the Football league was once -- I think -- geographically divided. There was a third division North and South maybe?

And I thought you were upset, Barry, because the answer described Halifax Town as a "team," as opposed to a "club" or a "side."
