Peppard moving out of Palmer Park Stadium was more likely tied up in their general financial demise due to rampant over-ambition. The issue of the smaller-than-regulation-pitch grabbed the headlines because of their embarrassing ejection from the FA Vase after they had beaten Oxford City in the First Round at Palmer Park. As I've heard it, City realised that the pitch was too small and complained, and Peppard were booted out of the competition.
Last season, I saw a Sunday match at the old ground near Sonning Common. Its still a half-decent set-up and would make a good home for any ambitious step6 side - fully railed, plenty of parking, clubhouse, no nimby neighbours to complain about floodlights, and plenty of space to throw up an Atcost or two.
New ticks this season: Sun Postal, Carshalton Athletic, Chertsey Town, Hanworth Villa, Cove, AFC.Stoneham, Bognor Regis Town, Havant College, Hook Norton, Hanwell Town, Sutton United, Deddington Town, Melksham Town, Brackley Town, KEA.Social, Lydney Town, Alton Town, Bedford Town, AFC.Hayes.
