Anyone know if I'm likely to be able to get into Norwich City U21 v Leicester City U21 at Colney Training Centre on a Monday afternoon (17-Oct-15)?
Thanks.


Norwich are usually ok, but it might be worth contacting the club in advance just to make sure. If it coincides with first team training they might be wary of visitors.

A former poster has Tweeted Oxford United are now going to play all youth matches at Abingdon United Instead of their training. I was also informed by a friend there is now a second pitch at the ground at right angles to main pitch on the former Cricket pitch

I presume you mean 17th August, I plan to go to this game and have never had a problem at Colney TC, they have always issued a teamsheet or basic programme for all of my visits too.



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.

Oxford United certainly played at Abingdon United last Saturday against Bournemouth' as it was an 11.30am kick-off it meant the Abingdon United 1st team game against Oxford City Nomads kicked of at 4pm.

Cropped from match report.

No problems getting in but rather restricted as to where you can watch from, which are two separate areas on one side of the pitch leaving the central area only accessible by players, staff and officials. However I did witness the scouts present told they needed to stand in a small area by the corner flag which didn't go down too well. My most recent visits (two years ago) were to witness games on pitches two and three which allowed much more freedom where to watch from.

In addition a free teamsheet was issued.

AFC Bournemouth U18 (0)1 Portsmouth U18 (0)2
Football League Youth Alliance
Saturday 5/9/15 at Canford Park Arena
Attendance: 77 (h/c)


Canford Park Arena was covered on this site back in September, 2014 but AFC Bournemouth then moved to Canford School due to drainage problems. This post is just to confirm that they are indeed now back at Canford Park Arena.
One improvement to last year is that, in addition to hot and cold drinks, bacon baps and sausage baps are also now available. Very welcome after travelling 176 miles to arrive in time for an 11pm kick off!
On the pitch Portsmouth maintained their position at the top of the South West Conference by coming from behind for a 2-1 win which they just about deserved.

The weird thing is that my 11pm kick off at Bournemouth was followed by a 3pm kick off at Wareham.
My Ford Fiesta's Tardis like qualities could prove very useful if I ever miss a kick off somewhere or get to a ground after the last programme is sold.Smile

Hull City U18 (1) 3 Coventry City U18 (1) 2
Under 18 Professional Development League 2
Saturday 14/11/15 at Bishop Burton College
The thought of enjoying 90 minutes football without a drop of rain was too tempting, so watching this match before the rain arrived made a good double with the 2pm kick off at the new Hall Road Rangers ground (where it definitely didn't stay dry). Although dry, it was also gloomy and the whole match apart from the first ten minutes were played with the floodlights on.
Previous visitors to Bishop Burton College for Westella games will be well aware of the layout with a line of four pitches to the right of the sports hall: a 4G cage, a floodlit football pitch, a second smaller football pitch and finally a rugby pitch. It was the floodlit football pitch which was used for this match and I was advised by a member of the Academy staff that this is the normal Under 18's pitch. This pitch was previously vulnerable to waterlogging when Westella played on it, but it is greatly improved now following work by Hull City. There was also an Under 16's game played which took place on one of the three pitches which are immediately on the left after passing through the security gate at the College entrance.
A thoroughly entertaining game saw Coventry take an early lead before Hull took control with three goals. A second Coventry goal three minutes from time was too little too late.
It was then a quick nine mile drive to Haworth Park and the goals kept coming with Hall Road Rangers beating South Cave 4-2 in the East Riding Senior Cup. Potential visitors to Haworth Park might care to note that their new floodlights were used for the second half, although the club have no midweek home games scheduled until near the end of the season.

Re: [tigerman48] Under 18s Youth and Academy venues [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

Crystal Palace U18 (0) 2 Queens Park Rangers U18 (0) 0
Under 18 Professional Development League 2 South
Saturday 28/11/15 at Goals Beckenham North.
Attendance: 45 (h/c), no team sheets


When enquiring about attending a match at Palace's new Under 18's venue, I was told only season ticket holders were allowed in with no admission to the general public. After an exchange of emails with a helpful member of Palace's Academy staff, however, my name was added to 'the list' for the QPR match.
Goals Beckenham North is a large complex with 5 a side pitches, a gym and a large playing area with room for four football pitches and a rugby pitch. As such the site was extremely busy with the car park full and many parking on the road outside, although this does cost £2.20.
The main playing area appears to have formerly been a cricket ground and spectators congregate before the game around the pavilion. This pavilion looks out at the two Palace pitches from behind the goal but, as it is slightly elevated, it is quite possible to watch both Under 18's and Under 16's at the same time from here. It also has a decent sized overhang for shelter on wet days and the bar was open selling hot and cold drinks. Security staff then allow spectators down to pitchside about ten minutes before the kick off, so you can also watch from the traditional spot on the touchline.
I did have a chat with a member of the security staff who checked his list, but I didn't see any spectators being asked to show season tickets. The main car park is right by the Palace pitches so, with so many members of the public on the site for other reasons, it is difficult to see how Palace can possibly enforce a 'no admission' policy.
The conditions were very challenging with a strong blustery wind and Palace deservedly won the Under 18's game with two second half goals while I believe the Under 16's finished at 1-1.
It was then off into the delights of London's traffic and a full half hour to cover the 2.9 miles to Lewisham Borough (Community) 1 Forest Hill Park 1 at the Ladywell Arena.

They began the season at Lytham YMCA due to building work at the training ground, but were due to return there during November. Seems they've opted instead for an alternative venue.

No suitable changing rooms at the training ground I was told Last Tuesday they changed at AFC and come to training ground in mini buses. The AFC sec said they were now at AFC's ground for the foreseeable future

As an aside for training the players seem to change at Broomfield Road and go to the training ground in their cars I have stayed in the hotel across the road from the ground twice this year and have seen them troop across the road from the ground to the hotel car park and then drive off to the training ground

Millwall U18s - Calmont Road

For information of anyone planning to visit Calmont Road admission was refused this morning to a Colchester supporter who didn't have a pre booked ticket.

Hartlepool United U18 (1) 3 York City U18 (0) 2
Football League Youth Alliance
at Blackhall Colliery Welfare Park
Saturday 20th February, 2016


My intention had been to 'double' a visit to Blackhall with a champagne job at Heaton Stannington in the Northern League. Finally, after what seemed like months of waiting, the two requirements of an 11am kick off at Blackhall and a decent weather forecast for the north east came together.
Many of the Saturday morning youth games are played at bleak wind swept training grounds, so it was a real pleasure to see a game at a 'proper' ground with a heritage of Wearside League and more recently Durham Alliance football.
The pit is long gone in Blackhall but the Colliery Welfare Park is typical of many such examples with the complex catering for many sports including an impressive cricket ground complete with new pavilion. The football ground is railed off on three sides with a bank of wide terracing steps on the far side from the entrance providing an ideal vantage point. The near side is roped off from spectators and boasts what appears to be two newly built dug outs, presumably indicating that Hartlepool have intentions of remaining on the site. There is no cover but hard standing runs around the pitch, although in need of some tlc in places.
On the pitch Hartlepool eased off at 3-0 up after 60 minutes and nearly paid the price. They managed to hang on to a 3-2 win, thus depriving York of the chance to add to their season's total of just three points.
When researching the history of the ground I came across Blackhall's claim to fame. Apparently Blackhall beach was the setting for the closing stages of "Get Carter" starring Michael Caine. With no time for sightseeing however, it was straight off in the direction of the Tyne Tunnel and on to the Grounsell Park home of Heaton Stannington FC. Lovely, friendly people but sadly my champagne job was celebrated with a 0-0 draw that was predictable from about ten minutes onwards.
