Dave Diaper long-serving manager at 2014 Vase winners Sholing FC is the first guest as they prepare for a change in visitors with Sporting Khalsa now awaited. Just how has he kept six of those Vase winners five years later and what is the magical ingredient at Sholing that means over half the squad have made over 100 appearances for the club? Plus 15 points clear at the top of the Wessex Premier League he also discusses the issues automatic promotion to Step 4 could create for his small, seemingly very well-run club.

Plus he reveals how he learnt it all in the lower reaches of Non-League.
Finally, Matt Badcock from The Non-League Paper offers his thoughts on the FA Vase and FA Trophy as well as the managerial changes at Hartlepool United and Kidderminster Harriers.
