It seems few if any league’s out there do something analogous to NFL Monday Night Football. And so achtung! Without big league matchups of note, most of today’s T2T we will spend getting to know a little about some of our cousin England’s teams and towns of the National Division.
It’s defined in Noob’s new Vocab page, but here’s the skinny: This is the 5th level of football in the league system. There’s the Premiere League, then the Football League – which houses the next three leagues/levels of play. Then there’s The National League System, which oversees almost 90 leagues. These guys are the top of that. Teams from here can be promoted into League Two, the 4th level in the league system.

Take two, root for Brothers Union, and call Noob in the morning.
10. Hurricanes vs. St. John’s – Grenada Premier
These two are in 1st and Noob -thinks- 4th respectively. Shockingly, Grenadine soccer isn’t abounding on the interblag. Finding quality football for Mondays isn’t the easiest! But now we know that country -has- a league. In fact, they even have pro-rel with a second one!
