I have a few non-league programmes which have a blank space under "Competition" in my spreadsheet as there's no hint whatsoever within the programme as to what league (or, possibly, cup) the match relates to.

Wondered if anyone might shed any light on what league or cup these matches might have taken place within?

90/91 Carrow v Wortwell
50s Elmington United v Dulwich Wanderers
90/91 Fonnereau Athletic v Leiston
67/68 Highgate United v Malvern Town
82/83 Iron Acton v Frampton Athletic
86/87 Irvine Victoria v Arthurlie
84/85 Kings Arms v Swan
88/89 Lingwood Caveners v Bishopgate
90s Mold Alexandra v Gresford Athletic
69/70 North Town v Loyal Brunswick reservers
60s Stamford Rovers v Upwell Town
90/91 Whitton United v Achilles
84/85 Willis Faber v Coplestonians
80s Wroughton v Dorcan

If anyone can assist, even with just one of them,I'd be very grateful.
Thanks.

Highgate United and Malvern Town competed in the Worcestershire Combination Division 1 during 67/8

Could Stamford Rovers v Upwell Town be possibly the 50ís? Stamford Rovers and Upwell Town competed in the Peterborough League (Premier Division) during 56/7 and Peterborough League (Div 1) during 58/59.

Re the Stamford Rovers issue - not much to be gained from the cover but it just felt more like the 60s than the 50s to me.....use of the word "supermarket" for one thing.

90/91 Whitton United v Achilles with a bit of help from Google would appear to be from Ipswich & District League Division One.

84/85 Willis Faber v Coplestonians this also appears to be from the Ipswich & District League.Willis Faber were the first team managed by Terry Westley who went on to manage Luton Town & Derby County and is now academy director at West Ham United.

90/91 Fonnereau Athletic v Leiston another one from the Ipswich & District League

80s Wroughton v Dorcan Wiltshire County League Division Two seasons 1981/82,1982/83 or 1983/84.

67/68 Highgate United v Malvern Town Worcestershire Combination Division Two

90s Mold Alexandra v Gresford Athletic could be 1990/91 Cymru Alliance or 1998/99 onwards Welsh National League.

86/87 Irvine Victoria v Arthurlie will most likely be the West Region League Championship

I was brought up in Stamford, from memory Sally Morlands supermarket opened in the late 60s or early 70s. Prior to that they used to trade on Stamford market.
