Selfishly I'd take Alfreton Town (a). Interestingly I noticed the now new, Alfreton Town badge looks a little like their past player Aden Flint. A little digging and it is actually Alfred The Great. Another dig and I discover that the guy who designed it, I used to play football with, went to the same school and he had the hots for my sister. He now lives in San Francisco. Funny old world.

Playing fast and loose with the word interesting there.

 Other than name, did Alf really set up Alfreton  Hmmm  I'd have had Alfreton down as Mercia.

 We had them and Ilkeston at the CG a few years back, one or the other had notably racist fans.

Ilkeston with the racist fans wasn't it? Didn't Ian Woan score direct from a corner?

I'll bow to your greater knowledge on matters King era STFC.

Ian Woan is currently to be found as Dyche's cone carrier at Burnley.

It's up for debate for certain. ATG was known to have sent fighters that far North whilst battling that region. There's chance that he could've played a part in building Alfreton for the sake of peace. Maybe he paid the Danes so they could "build" Alfreton? We fall on the Danelaw side so are Danish Mercia, I believe as opposed to English Mercia. If you look at the Wessex/Danelaw divide, it's not dissimilar to the North/South divide today. I thought we'd made progress, yet seems like a regress. Without bringing too much Brexit talk into the discussion, it seems likely that regression is where we could be headed anyway Wink

I'm always a bit wary about place-name derivations, because you can always find documents and references where spellings vary to a greater or lesser extent, sometimes to the point of completely changing the name.  Take somewhere like Avebury, at one time it was Abury or Aubrey.... Avebury only evolving relatively recently, prob 18th/19th Century. Swindon used to known as Chipping Suindone.

Can be fun though if you're trying to create a landscape history theory as any interpretation is likely is valid as the next.
