Wasn't Roman Glass' ground on a hop when Almondsbury Town played there?

Sorry, I wouldn't know about either of these - I just looked at the Western League hops, which appeared to start in 2015 - and didn't think about Almondsbury changing location. Does anyone have, or can produce, a listing of which ground/clubs have been 'hopped' and when?

Almondsbury Town were never in the Western League. I think that it was hopped on a Hellenic League game, after which we moved onto Cricklade.

Not sure about that.I saw Cricklade on a hop in August 2009, first match on a Sunday, followed by Newbury (non-tick for me) and Ascot United.
As an aside, I have an interest in the Almondsbury game.I saw Almondsbury Town in April 1999 at what I have described as Oakland Park.I believe that is what is now known as the county ground, and where Roman Glass St George now play.And that Almondsbury play on the opposite side of the road ( right hand side travelling west from the M5)

Just checked my records - the Almondsbury Town match was due to be played on the morning of the Cricklade match in 2009, but was postponed after I arrived at the ground.

If you saw Almondsbury Town in 1999 it was probably at Oaklands Park. In the early 1990s Almondsbury Town played on the other side of the A38, roughly in the area where Almondsbury now play.

Not only do Roman Glass St George [formerly Bristol St George] play at Oaklands Park but so do Lebeq United from the Gloucestershire County League. Former occupants besides Almondsbury Town include Winterbourne United in their Western League days.

In which case on Saturday people should use the Bristol Ring Road to the M32, then the M4 and M5. Whilst on Sunday well that could be interesting.

Re: [Andy D] All Hops Details Sticky [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

Disagree with that.Frankly, hops to really interesting places which I then do not get to see are less interesting to me than those to places where a day trip would be just in and out.
Now if Groundhop could just switch some of the fixtures so as I could get three new grounds on the Saturday, rather than just the two!

Bootle's alright...

Anyone wanting an alternative on the Friday evening may wish to consider Tranmere v Crewe, which has been shifted from the Saturday (not under the influence of GHUK, I might add!)

That's a blast from the past. In my Tranmere watching days in the late 80's and early 90's that was a regular Friday fixture. Those were the days.

Surprised at that, as it clashes with England's visit to Croatia

England on the telly rarely impacts on Rovers' attendances although a blank EPL weekend can put a few hundred on the gate if it's a decent-looking game. It's been quite a while since we had a normal league game on a Friday so it'll be interesting to see the turnout, especially given these circumstances.

Re: [paulh66] All Hops Details Sticky [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

The 7th Annual Bedfordshire County Football League Groundhop 13th October 2018.
I am delighted to announce that this year’s groundhop will take place on the second Saturday in October.
We have three games as usual featuring one game in Division One and two in the Premier Division.
The day starts off with a 1100 kick off at the Woodlands home of Bedford Albion.
We then make the short trip from Albion and to the other side of Bedford for a 1345 kick off in the Premier Division at Allen Park home of Queens Park Crescents before making our way onto the village of Wootton to pay a visit to Weston Park home to former United Counties League side Wootton Blue Cross who round off the day with a 1645 ko in the Premier Division.
Admission to all the games is as usual free, with all clubs issuing a programme at £2 each.
Advance programme tickets are available at £6 for the three games or individual match tickets can be purchased to suit. Email [email protected] for more details.
Also you can purchase a ticket by seeing me on the PDFL/UCL hop, the Welsh hop or indeed the NBFL hop.
Transport is provided at an additional £12 if you require it, pick up at Bedford Train Station at 0915.
I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at this year’s event.

Chris Berezai's latest e-mail suggests that the North Berks 'Hop is taking place on the weekend of 22nd September rather than 15th. Probably rules me out, sadly.

The latest email also points out that Canton Liberal's game will be at Lawrenny Avenue, which I believe is the railed-off pitch just behind Leckwith Stadium; that St Albans will not be hopped; and that STM Sports Old Boys is not the same ground as STM Sports, although it doesn't go as far as saying which ground it actually is.

So is the ground used by Canton Libs their normal ground?
I am assuming you will go to that one, Mark - as a good LiberalSmile
(I'll be in France, although I might be able to go on the bank holiday)

I wonder what St Albans have done to earn such a note!!

Yes, I believe it's their regular ground although they may play some games at the main athletics stadium. I think they've been there a few years, but there may have been a change of access point or change of address during this time, even though it's been the same pitch throughout.

There's been a change to the Welsh Hop Monday schedule, STM Sports OB are out and Rhydyfelin are in - it's now Rhydyfelin (11am), Caerphilly Athletic (2pm) & AFC Whitchurch (5pm).

Rhydefelin are not at the same ground that was hopped for Rhydyfelin Zenith some years ago.

Laurence has this evening tweeted that there won't be a North Berks Hop this year

"It would appear that we've finally run out of clubs who either can, or want to host a game, or haven't already done so. Still it's been one helluva ride from the first game at Steventon, to the last at Westminster."

Well I will certainly be at Preston Park so if you fancy a pint beforehand Paul, give me a shout, The Saturday hop is functional shall we say. Here is an atcost and another oh and here is a cage etc etc. Luckily I tick these awful venues off in midweek with little expense

I wish i could mate, but I'm afraid it'a a case of
GroundhopUK 1-0 Highways Agency.
I just can't face too many trips home from up there, so 3 new ones in a weekend and a drive home with no road closures is good for me.
Now our friend Bezza has dished up some good stuff over the years as well as some total crap, wet fields are not for me, but the latest expedition on GroundhopEU could be about as bad as it gets.
3 in a day sounds good, especially when it's a Wednesday, and in a nice City like Lisbon.
15-00 Belenenses V Chaves (currently playing at the old National Stadium)
18-00 Setubel V Tondela
21-15 Sporting V Estoril
Only one new ground for me, but just fancied it.
Sounds good i hear you cry, but these are League Cup, not only that, their League cup is in groups. OK they might take is seriously, but they might not, if that's the case a friendly in North Wales might not seem so bad, or getting drenched in a field in South Wales could be quite appealing.
But who cares, it's cheap and the CEO of GroundhopEU doesn't make you pay any surcharges for cash.

For those of you who are going to any or all of the Groundhop Games starting this Friday, I have been tasked with accessing the line ups and writing them up on a white board which will be ready for use well before the game. Therefore don't feel you have tro hunt down the teams as it will be done for you.
Also, I am selling the 125tgh anniversary Western League book at all the games so those who want one for the collection see me with seven quid and I will oblige . Finally anyone struggling to get to any of the venues,come and find me as I will have room for three more going from game to game. Get to Briz early on Friday.

Correct, but the ground's entrance is in Old Ford End Road (opposite Ormesby Way) and not in Carlisle Road as some sources claim. Google Maps photo show a cricket square on ground, but this is because their photos are taken during the summer months.

Re: [Atavistic] All Hops Details Sticky [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

Regarding the Hellenic League hop. It appears the league fixtures only go up to 13th April. Although there appears to be good reason. Brimscombe & Thrupp have 10 games left, 9 are played in Jan, Feb & March & their last game is April 13th. At this rate the league might have finished by Easter ? Even Longlevens who have a lot of games left have their last 2 games scheduled for April 6th & 13th.
I was just checking about booking accommodation but I'll hold off at moment.

No news yet from GHUK but one factor that could've affected the running order of these fixtures has been resolved today. Liverpool v Burnley has been moved to Sunday 10th, presumably so as not to clash with the nearby Lower Breck game. Wink

So exciting that it needed a teaser release just over 90 minutes before the official one (which only stated he was not announcing a Highland hop)I am of course now in such a state of excitement that I am keeping every weekend in 2019-20 free while I await details.

Not that I am aware of since their resignation last season. All fixture info was taken directly from the GHUK website.
I expect it is more likely to be Headington Amateurs.

Abingdon Town were originally quoted as an opposition but this was changed to Abingdon United so I expect GHUK's due diligence checks weren't that thorough

If Long Crendon is not up to standard and they play at Oxford City. Then why does the ground suddenly become fit for a league game. Have the Hellenic League got no morals or backbone.

1) No2) This is Division 2? Long Crendon's ground may be OK for that standard, but they may have to play elsewhere so as they can apply for Step 63) Have they applied for Step 6?

Everyone at Thornbury is looking forward to being part of our first Groundhop weekend.

What are the average following at these? We want to make sure we stock up on programmes, badges and refreshments!


Typically in the region of 200-300, give or take. No idea what proportion of that would typically book through GHUK (thus guaranteeing their programme Wink) though.

Has the Central Midlands hop been scrapped? Seems to have fallen off the calendar


Yes, it's been cancelled. From GHUK's latest newsletter it's partly because there's been so few postponements this year but also because "two of the hosts could be playing in the League Cup Final that weekend so had to be withdrawn, Newark haven’t moved into their new facility yet, and Retford would be waiting five weeks between penultimate and final match of the season."

Good time up North, shame about Irlam but hopefully they didn’t produce too many programmes (most of the others didn’t) and didn’t get too much food in.
But spare a thought for poor old Bezza, poor old boy has now got to dish out loads of refunds. I was led to believe those that brought the ticket paid £5 a game, but the rest of us only paid £4 at one game, £3 at another, concessions were available at another, and obviously the Irlam game being off means poor old Bezza is probably a very busy boy dishing out lots of £8’s, I didn’t see him dishing out any cash refunds but no doubt the hoppers would have insisted on a handling fee.

GHUK's individual match prices varied from £5-£7 but all included the match programme. Irlam was £7, not £8, which stacks up with the club's usual £5 adult admission charge and £2 prog. Rylands was £5 including a £2 prog, which suggests a £3 admission...though various WDYG reports this season suggest it's normally £4. So next time grab yourself a bargain and book through GHUK!

Just for clarity - we have been told in the past that GHUK does refund for games that are called off.
As they keep a record of bookings, there would be no need for them to have anyone at the gate issuing vouchers

Re: [paulh66] All Hops Details Sticky [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

Chatting about this at last night's Norwich City U23 game and we thought the biggest issue would be trying to get clubs to switch to Sunday, as this would cause players to have to decide which team to turn out for. I'm also presuming the focus would be towards the top end of the AC but it will be interesting to see what materialises and if £5 is the going rate for a GHUK game best of luck getting locals (and others) to pay at most AC venues.



Watford FC supporter hence the name also follow Hull FC but rarely get to see either these days.

Have now visited over 800 grounds, progress in recent years has been rather slow and will continue to be as things stand.

The recent GHUK newsletter mentioned the Anglian Comb hop would not include any Sunday games. Without double-checking, I think this was at the behest of the league. No idea what their prices would be for step 7 and below.

Seems like they already spotted the potential player availability issues.

I believe he was quoting GHUK's prices, which include both admission and programme. Handy if you like a lie-in.

Re: [mxhornet] All Hops Details Sticky [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

Good point. With a number of current Premier Division clubs - such as Wymondham, Hellesdon, Long Stratton, Blofield, St Andrews and Acle - playing on easily-accessed pitches on public land, you can't stop anybody just wandering in. Perhaps the attraction is going to be an infrequent issuer coming up with a special issue to justify the £5 charge - possibly CEYMS or Aylsham. You're also going to need clubs with lights involved, and logistically it would have to be centred around the Norwich area so you could get a programme like: Friday 7.30pm: Aylsham or Beccles; Saturday: 11am Wymondham; 1.30pm CEYMS; 4pm Long Stratton 7.30pm Beccles or Bungay. Your Caisters, Scoles and Mundfords may be considered too far-flung this time around, while if UEA were to get promoted there's no real attraction for anyone to visit a roped-off pitch unless there's an all-important piece of paper.

The attraction is not just about a programme at an infrequent issuer, though that would no doubt be an attraction for some. There have been plenty of grounds on hops over the years where people could easily wander in without paying, but most of those travelling some distance to attend would be willing enough to pay the host club, and with sales on other items too, be able to make it worthwile for them.
