Eynesbury Rovers 3 Wellingborough Town 3
FA Cup E.P. Round
h/t 1-2
att. 137

Like most games today, this game was dominated by the strong wind. The Doughboys went into a deserved lead with an inswinging corner that only got the slightest touch before ending in the net. Rovers equalised before Town took the lead right on the stroke of HT. Rovers twice equalised in the second half the last goal coming in time added on after the Doughboys keeper feigned injury forcing the referee to add on about five minutes.

Hall Road will have been visited by most on here. It looked tidy for the start of the season with a snooker table of a pitch. A more than edible bacon burger was consumed before the game and thanks to sheffgeoff for driving, (the lucky so-and-so winning sixty quid in the raffle).



We'll be, as we are, when all the fools who doubt us fade away.

Ardrossan Winton Rovers 2-4 Shettleston West Region League 1....Adm £5...Prog £2....Cuppa £1....Soft drink can £1.

Took an early drive down the coast and the A737 to the Ayrshire coast and the town of Ardrossan.Not a new visit but the weather looked more iffy out east with a few pitch inspections planned.
Down the harbour,Hms Ramsey was sailing with families embarked for a day at sea before returning to base...and departing immediately behind her was the ferry to Brodick and the Isle of Arran....what a beautiful day to go for a sail.
Back to the footy,got in the ground an hour before kick off and did the football tourist bit with the camera.I found all the ground staff and committee folk very engaging and decent.Some strange looking clouds passed by but no threat of rain,just sunburn.
Winton have already been stuffed 8-1 twice this season already.They took the lead on 5 mins.A bloke passed me behind the net and said 'thats something you dont see very often,Winton leading'. Before he had got to the corner flag,the scores were level.
An own goal gave Shettleston a 1-2 lead and they went further behind on the half hour. Winton were denied on 42 mins with a double save from the defender and keeper.
Hopes of a comback were raised with a Winton goal on 62 minutes,this was short lived.Shettleston got the fourth and final goal five minutes later and this knocked the stuffing out of Winton.The game did get a bit juicy late on with some tasty challenges, it produced a number of yellows but no red cards.
It will be a long old season for Winton and Shettleston were only marginally better.
Love the ground,quirky and interesting....always worth a visit.
After the game went back the coastal route through Largs before stopping at Wemyss Bay train station/ferry terminal,what a fine old building that is.

Littletown FC 0, Wombwell Town 4.
Pre-Season Friendly
Free admission. Att: 50 best guess. Mostly from Wombwell.

A stronger Wombwell team put Littletown to the sword in this friendly. The hosts were apparently missing a few players, but the performance by the visitors was one of the strongest they've had this summer.

It was 3-0 by half time which saw rain and sun at the same time in parts. Ryan Smith scored twice and captain Luke Exley netted a 3rd just before the break. The second was fairly even, but comfortable before a trialist scored with eight minutes to go to put the game to bed.

West Lancs Division 2. KO 15:30. (F&N). Crowd 1.

Burscough Dynamo 3 v 5 Walney Island

Dynamo play at the Thomas Galvin Sports ground, Abbey lane, L40 7SR. Just yards beyond the Abbey lane turning is the Ringtail Retail Park with a Booths, Lidl and various stores. The ground is very basic at the moment, just a rope down both sides of the pitch, however in a phone conversation with the secretary, she told me they were awaiting two self assembly stands, which should have already been delivered but were now going to arrive next week or the week after.

There are 6 pitches at this sports ground and a large changing room block. No facilities for spectators such as tea or toilets, there might be tea and coffee another time if someone remembers to bring the milk! Probably a ground worth saving for a few weeks until the organisation improves and the stands are delivered.

KO was delayed after Walney tweeted they were stuck on the A590, closed in both directions following an accident, hence the start time. It rained for almost the whole game but the pitch held up well with no sign of puddles.

The game was bottom v top, the fledgling league table showed Dynamo had conceded 9 in two games and Island had taken maximum points from their opponents. Walney were gifted an opening goal when the keeper spilled a weak shot allowing a tap in. Second added just before half time.

15 minutes into the second period it seemed to be game over when it became 0-3. However 18 minutes into the half it was 2-3 and 3-3 with around 10 minutes to go. Two late goals clinched an entertaining game for the visitors in wet and windy conditions. It's a shame their move to the West Lancs obviously didn't capture the imagination of the Burscough public!

PUNJAB and CORINTHIAN

By chance at the same two Games as Steve, thought I’d add some flesh to the bone. Firstly at Punjab, surprised no Concession price, all Adults £8, I enquired if this was an FA requirement or suggestion, no we always charge this amount ! The Programme had quality paper and colour, but for 8 pages £2 was required, Goes without saying Sold Out, still better than my only previous visit when they failed to issue, can’t remember the excuse !

On to Corinthians, same Competition but just £3 for Concessions believe £5 for normal people, plus just £1 for a 20 page Programme, not such good quality but more than adequate,

Unfortunately whilst both Games had some pretty football and despite almost £2,500 to each winner, neither really produced the intensity and determination to Win, that I expect from the FA Cup !

Mulbarton Wanderers - 0 Boston Town - 0
FA Cup EP Round
Mulberry Park
Attendance - 300ish (not seen an official figure yet)
Admission - £5
Programme - £1

A quick revisit after finding myself free on a Saturday afternoon. One of several local hoppers in attendance, but in my case not travelling on to Thetford afterwards.
An entertaining game despite the lack of goals, MW just about had the better of the first half and BT were the better side in the second half. A draw was a fair result.



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.

Hartford 2-4 Golborne Sports
Cheshire League Division 2
No admission charge
Att: 23 (h/c)

Disappointing to use a 3G Joker in August, but a combination of domestic issues and an appalling weather forecast forced this one on me. As it happened, the expected thunder, lightning and heavy rain didn't materialise, but there was a strong end-to-end wind throughout the match.

Hartford are new to the league this season, and play at the Moss Farm 3G. It's a typical cage set-up, with spectator accommodation running 3/4 of the length of one side. Changing rooms are in the Cheshire FA building just outside the cage,

The game wasn't bad at all, although the wind was a factor. Golborne took an early lead, but Hartford turned things around to lead at the break. With the wind behind, Golborne bossed the 2nd half. Two goals in a minute around the hour turned the game in their favour, and a 4th direct from a free kick 10mins later sealed the points.

.....An early season opportunity to go to the pristine environs of what I am sure that we will refer to as Hop Oast but as is the case for sponsorship purposes is referred to as the Camping Direct Community Stadium for...

Horsham 1 v 1 Leatherhead - Isthmian League Premier Division
Prog 32 pages £2.00* - Admission £11.00 - Att 711

*For almost the first time in living memory, there is no full page advert for the leagues sponsors, in fact unless you look very hard to locate the tiniest of tiny boxes at the base of the front cover, you would be hard pushed to locate who in fact is currently sponsoring the league.

...As the prog states that this occasion was the first 'home' game since their Queen Street departure since 29th April 2008. Functional ground with the all important 4g pitch which will no doubt provide a beneficial income stream. Cover on all 4 sides but it must be said that the cover behind the far goal and on the side opposite the stand is small. Main stand is sizeable and was able to locate without problem a seat aligned with the half way line with 40 minutes to kick off. It must also be said that the venue is a long way outside of the town boundary in an area surrounded by fields and a golf course which from a non golfing perspective has a strangely positioned bunker, which looks as if it is going to topple onto the approach road. Speaking of the approach road, it is not clearly signed at present and it would be a case of setting the sat nav in order to locate. On foot it took just over 30 minutes from the town centre, though add on at least another 10 from the over the other side to the town station.

Reasonable contest between two well matched teams and from which the impression was reached that these are two teams who are unlikely to trouble the upper echelons of the division. Plenty of Isthmian League hard graft but neither team possessed on this occasion that extra decisiveness that separates those at the top of the division from the remainder.

Lively start with Leatherhead taking he lead from a penalty awarded after D'Sane toppled over Shelley's raised leg after one of this season unfolding themes occurred with the Horsham defence dwelling too long in possession too close to their own penalty area. D'Sane sent Bentley the wrong way from the resultant spot kick. Horsham responded positively having the better first half opportunities but these were spurned as Smith lofted over from close range and a deft chip from Newton drifted wide of the far post. The leveller arrived with 7 minutes of the half remaining as Lavery obtained space on the right sending over a low cross which O'Toole touched in at the near post. The visitors were unfortunate not to restore their advantage with Djamaili locating Ekpiteta whose angled shot was flying past Bentley into the far corner before the Horsham keeper stuck out his trailing leg to divert the trajectory of the shot wide of the far post.

The second half continued in a similar vein to the first with two comparable teams. Once again Horsham had the slightly better of chances with a header from Shelley looping over Oualal but finding Djamaili perfectly positioned on the line to head clear and in stoppage time a O'Toole caused the crossbar to reverberate. Following up Brivio rushed the rebound sending it into a neighbouring field. The visitors had their opportunities as well with Gallagher playing an increasingly influential role, with a cushioned header landing at the feet of McGee who diverted a clear chance wide and then Gallagher took ownership of possession and his dipping shot from the edge of the area saw Bentley just about obtain the faintest of tips that saw the effort over the bar. Overall whereas both teams could have contrived a win a drawn outcome was by far the most equitable of outcomes.

Rather a rushed day after the usual pre trip lack of organisation failed to locate the presence of a replacement bus service between Three Bridges and Horsham. Led to possibly too lengthy trips to the town JDW, however this can be excused with the presence of perfectly acceptable ales from Bedlam and Crafty at £2.39 a pint. Compared with the Black Jug which of course is aesthetically much more pleasing but an average Hammerpot session ale was £2.20 for a half.

The bus driver on the return journey between Horsham and Three Bridges was clearly contemplating an alternative career in F1 as he sped between the two locations in barely 20 minutes taking in additional brief stop at Crawley. Remainder of journey without issue and indoors to brought forward Sunday ironing tasks at 21.10....

Scottish Cup First Preliminary Round
Dundonald Bluebell v Auchinleck Talbot, 2-2, H.T. 0-1, Att c.450, Admission £7, Programme £2, Coffee £1
At Moorside Park

This proved to be a very entertaining Cup tie with the scoreline ending tied – so a Replay next week at Auchinleck. Or perhaps not? Fifteen minutes before kick off someone pointed out to Auchinleck that they were fielded a suspended player. The Scottish Cup rules are quite clear – teamlines are submitted 75 minutes before the game and can only be changed in the event of injury or other extreme circumstance. The latter covers a player being called way due to family crisis or that sort of thing. It doesn’t allow clubs to alter the teamlines because they have made a schoolboy error in listing an ineligible player. Presumably the Talbot official responsible will have offered his resignation by now. The referee did the right thing by allowing the change but he is not the arbiter for the competition rules, as he pointed out to officials of both clubs. It remains to be seen if the SFA accept that this was an "extreme circumstance". Dundonald have their argument ready that their tactics had focussed on neutralising "McPherson", the player in question. That may or may not be true but it is a valid argument.

Notwithstanding the fact that the game may have been irrelevant, it was a fiercely contested Cup tie between two evenly matched teams. Mind you, it nearly didn’t happen – Auchinleck were unhappy about the state of the pitch and lobbied the referee to have the game called off. There was nothing wrong with he surface which Dundonald had worked on all morning – it was soft but playable.

Talbot led with a first half goal that upset Dundonald. They thought there was a foul in the build up but they should also have been concerned about poor goalkeeping – the keeper sold himself leaving an simple scoring opportunity.

The game produced a crazy two minutes midway through the second half. Firstly young Smith the Bluebell subbie broke clear, outpacing the Talbot defence and planted a shot in the corner of the net. Less than a minute later the same player let fly from 35 yards and his effort flew into the top corner. Not bad for a laddie just promoted from the U20s. From the kick off Talbot went forward and they were awarded a penalty for handball – technically correct but unlucky for the defender. The goalie saved it but in the ensuing stramash hauled a Talbot player down – second penalty. This one was converted.

Thereafter it was end to end stuff with nothing to divide the teams. Assuming the Replay does go ahead, Talbot go into it on the back of possibly two Cup ties in midweek. They have a Round of 16 game in their League Cup on Monday, with the Quarter Final on Wednesday. Anyone assuming that Talbot will cruise it in a home replay against Dundonald might be in for a surprise.

The saddest note on an otherwise celebratory day for the home side was that Dundonald Vice Chairman Wullie Webster passed away the night before the game. He was one of the guys who worked so hard to get Bluebell to where they are – taking part in the Scottish Cup every year as of right.

One-off match programme for £2 was, to be charitable, poor. The Bluebell Pie Hut was, as always, superb.

Talbot’s once large away support seems to dwindle with each passing season. Not many more than 200 there for this one when at one time they would have brought many many more. Maybe being such a giant fish in a small (and getting smaller) pond has become boring – after all football is about competition, not winning everything. The law of diminishing returns applies – there is a point at which every trophy won diminishes the significance of the next one and Talbot may have passed the point of no return in this respect. The sooner they get on board with the “Pyramid” / Lowland League and embrace some wider competition the better it may be for the club.

Bluebell will be one of the better sides in the East of Scotland League this season and could challenge for promotion to the Lowland League. That would be an achievement worth celebrating with a tangible reward at the end rather than just sewing another star on their jersey.

Also at this one, before heading to another nearby debutant in the FA Cup.

Sutton Athletic 3-2 Deal Town
FA Cup extra Preliminary Round


A much better game than the earlier one at Punjab. The teams coped with the wind more effectively. Sutton took the lead midway through each half, with Deal getting a late equaliser. However, in injury time an own goal clinched the tie for the lower division hosts. Plenty of other chances in the game too making for a good cup tie.

They had a large crowd today - I overheard someone remarking on how many cars needed to be parked on the road outside. There is a small bit of covered standing on the near side, with a seated stand towards the corner on the opposite side and a clubhouse in one corner. A grass banking rises up on the far side, most of this side and behind one goal are just grass stnading.

FA Cup Extra Preliminary Round

Haughmond FC 3 Walsall Wood 2

Shrewsbury Sports Village

Admission - £5 Programme - £1 Attendance around 100.

Excellent fare served up despite the windy conditions on a ground which is very much open to the elements.

Entrance to the pitch was via the reception area of the impressive Shrewsbury Sports Village which led to a caged pitch with one seated area, one small covered standing area, hard ground uncovered standing behind both goals with one length of the pitch being out of bounds altogether.

This was an excellent ebb and flow encounter with the home team hanging on in the last 10 minutes to progress to an away tie at Lichfield City in the next round.

At half time in the above encounter, I headed back to the foyer of the sports village for shelter from the wind, to be met by a full table of sandwiches and chips......not sure if they were laid on for the officials of both clubs, but I dived in and very nice they were too.

Easy exit after the game aswell from the large free car park at the sports village.

Biggleswade United 1 - 0 Swaffham Town
FA Cup EP Round
Admission £6; Prog free, online only

Having been quite impressed with Biggleswade when I saw them pre-season, I decided to take in this interesting looking tie against newly promoted Swaffham.

Only my second visit to Second Meadow, the first 11 years ago. The main things I remember were the sea of mud behind one goal where everyone parked, and being able to still see Biggleswade Town's old ground across the fields.

The view across the fields is now out, as the whole ground is enclosed with a grey metal fence. The car parking area is still grassed, but was OK this time around, and outside the fence. Plenty of room for today's crowd, though the visitors did come in a coach - a rare sight nowadays. Heard several comments from the home crowd about them having ideas above their station because they had a coach, though I certainly remember the days when it was the norm at this level.

A new stand now sits opposite the old one, with lots of seats and a small standing area at one end. This gave good shelter from the wind and rain so I watched from here.

The first half was fairly forgettable, United playing up the slope with the wind behind, neither side really getting to grips with the conditions. Not many chances, and several injury breaks for Town players.

The second half was much better, with chances for both sides, the home side taking theirs with just over 10 minutes to go, and then seeing out the match to take the tie.

Also at this. Enjoyable despite the wind spoiling the game to a degree, and the lack of goals. Impressed by the way the whole village seemed to embrace the club's FA Cup debut. The official crowd is given as 310.

It looks bleak for Talbot.

The rules state, however, the circumstances must be explained to and accepted by the referee. If he permitted the change he must have accepted it.

Given the speed at which the SFA operates, what are the chances of any appeal being heard before next weekend?


14.8 If a Starting Player listed on the Official Team Line is not able to start the Match due to unexpected physical incapacity or other extreme circumstances (which are explained to and accepted by the referee), he may only be replaced by one of the Nominated Substitutes. The Nominated Substitute who becomes a Starting Player may then only be replaced by an eligible Player not originally listed on the Official Team Line as signed, so that the quota of Nominated Substitutes is not reduced.

A Knitters win in Staffs!! 1 minute on the clock and LR miss from the spot, 90 on the clock and Hanley do the same thing. Knitters went behind and then led twice before Gomes struck the winner with 20 left. Backs to the wall stuff late on and a draw would probably have been a fairer result but what the hell!

Train job today via Derby and walked the couple of miles to the ground rather than bugger about catching 2 buses and a pleasant ground it is as well without having any spectacular features about it but the clubhouse is nice enough with old photos aplenty which are always nice to see.


I was also at this one, supporting my local side, Hanley Town - were you one of the two noticeable away fans, with a drum?
I thought the first half was excellent entertainment, with Thorpe's equaliser on half time worth the entrance fee alone.
Hanley missed a lot of chances and there was a certain inevitability about their penalty miss. Shame about the controversy for Knitters' winner - don't know why the ref over-ruled the linesman, but couldn't see myself if it was off or not.
Enjoy the Bromsgrove game and good luck!

FAC EP.
Hanley Town 2 Leicester Road 3.
In £5.
Paper £2.
Carling £3.05.
A Knitters win in Staffs!! 1 minute on the clock and LR miss from the spot, 90 on the clock and Hanley do the same thing. Knitters went behind and then led twice before Gomes struck the winner with 20 left. Backs to the wall stuff late on and a draw would probably have been a fairer result but what the hell!

Train job today via Derby and walked the couple of miles to the ground rather than bugger about catching 2 buses and a pleasant ground it is as well without having any spectacular features about it but the clubhouse is nice enough with old photos aplenty which are always nice to see.


I was also at this one, supporting my local side, Hanley Town - were you one of the two noticeable away fans, with a drum?
I thought the first half was excellent entertainment, with Thorpe's equaliser on half time worth the entrance fee alone.
Hanley missed a lot of chances and there was a certain inevitability about their penalty miss. Shame about the controversy for Knitters' winner - don't know why the ref over-ruled the linesman, but couldn't see myself if it was off or not.
Enjoy the Bromsgrove game and good luck!

He was played onside for the winner and the ref could have easily bottled it and changed his original decision. Certainly not me with the drum but I know them. There were more visiting directors than fans in attendance yesterday.

Saturday 10th August 2019 @3pm
Premier League
CRYSTAL PALACE 0-0 EVERTON
Selhurst Park
Admission comp (otherwise£30)
Programmes available @£3.50
Attendance 25,151

After a disruptive week Zaha was on the bench against the side hankering for his signature. Everton had the best chances in the first half with desperate defending at times. Palace had a better 2nd half and noticeably improved after Wilfs introduction after an hour. Both sets of fans in good voice. Schneiderlin had a mare and I was shocked to see how much Michael Keane has gone backwards in his career. Palace new signings were in the bench due to lack of team cohesion I guess, but should see Cahill and Camarasa start next week.
For those who like refreshments at the ground hot and soft drinks are £2, alcohol is £5and usual hot food £4-5.

I would say that being suspended is an extreme circumstance!


In the context of the rule, only if suspension was by the neck.

A double-header in Kent at two grounds that have emerged from pretty much nothing in recent years. Karb and I departed around 9.00 for the long journey south and despite the omni-present delays on the M25 around Heathrow and the A3, we rolled into Gravesend with about 15 minutes to spare for :


FA Cup extra-prelim : Punjab United 0 Broadbridge Heath 1. Admission £8, Programme £2. Attendance : 204
Nestled deep in the middle of a none-too-salubrious part of town, this event had a tangible feelgood factor with genuine excitement at being chosen as the live streaming game on the BBC and the teams emerged accompanied by a sitar player and bhangra drummer. Despite the name, this is a real community club with the team a mixture of many cultures and they have created a very home-spun venue at what's now called the Manak Stadium. There's adequate parking next to the ground for most games though nearby street parking was necessary today due to the larger than usual attendance. Most facilities are down the near side with a motley collection of scaffolding-pole structures permitting both seating and standing cover as well as a large decking area in front of the newly-extended clubhouse which appears to be an ingenious combination of trailer and portakabins. Close by was the tea-bar where one severely overworked lady served a range of food and drink - karb vouched for the samosas at £1.50 while my kebab roll at £4 was up there with the best fodder I've had on a match day.
Sadly the game reached no great heights, not helped by the strong winds, a solitary messy goal on the interval settling things which was eventually credited/debited as an own goal. Punjab rallied near the end, striking the goal frame and missing other opportunities but all seemed content at how the day had gone.
As expected, lots of hopper faces in the crowd with our own shifnalshrew, knowyourmarket, catchagogoal, Dr Love, colpic, The Wall, Geoff and the not-seen-for-yonks UK Punk in attendance with his lad who seemed in good form. In lesser spirits was the obnoxious Barry the Twat, ranting throughout and searching for an audience for his nonsense. A Grand Prix style start in the carpark afterwards as folk raced off for game 2 with time of the essence.
Ten miles and twenty minutes later we pitched up at:


Southern Counties East 1 : Snodland Town 0 Elmstead 1. Admission £5, Programme £2. Attendance : 45
Potyns Sports Ground is located on the western edge of the town and is developing nicely into a decent facility as the club grows after promotion to Step 6 a couple of years ago. A clubhouse is being prepared behind the impressive elevated stand which provides the only covered accommodation at the ground which is built on a considerable slope. At present, players change in a Community Centre which is a couple of hundred yards away across an adjacent pitch. A fine programme was produced and we were welcomed heartily thanks to catchagogoal's schmoozing of various club officials. All that was missing really was the teams not taking to the pitch to the sound of "Last Tango in Snodland", one of many dubious offerings from Snodland's very own bard of lewd, the late Judge Dread, holder of the record for having most songs banned on the BBC.
Food and drinks were available from a hut next to the stand with various pasties (£1.50) and sausage rolls available. More fodder at half-time as an enterprising lady came over from the community centre who'd had some event cancelled due to the weather and thus had surplus food - the Mexican Samosas (rice and salsa) were delicious if a tad overpriced at £2.50 for a small pair.
Elmstead were much the better side but didn't get the goal they deserved until the 80th minute but even then Snodland could have earned a draw with a late lob over the keeper bouncing back of the underside of the bar. Again wind-affected but that may have been down to what I'd eaten....
A couple of ticks in the area before the long journey back - firstly a scenic drive down narrow lanes and along White Horse Road high up on the North Downs to find the Amazon & Tiger in Harvel - beautiful old pub frequented by walkers but with an average beer choice today followed by a superb hour in the wonderful Malling Jug in the attractive market town of West Malling; an extensive selection of ales and beer snacks at good prices in a super micro-pub. £3.80 for a pint is pretty good in this part of the world......

GLOS. CO. LGE: QUEDGELEY WANDERERS 1 HENBURY 3

ADM: Free. PROG: £1 (16 pages). ATT: 76

Glawster has a newbie in the midst, & decent enough addition they are too. Hidden well amongst a trading estate & over four miles from the city centre, but rural feel to the place. Sports centre facilities, but no real cover to speak of, so one to do on a dry day. Second pitch in the distance is also railed, albeit the first team set up has the new fangled style of upvc rail.

Game wise, it was a poor first half due to it blowing a hoolie making it a lottery. Improved a tad second forty five, with all the goals including three in the last five minutes. Just when you thought the home team may have snuck a draw, Henbury went straight back the other end to knock in two more. Quedgeley may take a while to find their feet, but good luck to them. Small bar & tea bar, but does what it says on the tin. Paper to cuddle is available from said tea bar, with no one making an attempt to sell them around the ground. Pleasant, if blustery day out in Glos.

Vanarama National North
Gloucester City v Altrincham (at Evesham United FC) 1-1 (adm £13, prog £2, att 305)


The first of three new grounds for me in the National North this season saw Altrincham fail to hold a lead for the third time this season. In dry but very windy conditions, we went ahead after 10 minutes when defender James Jones converted John Johnston's cross in a mirror image of the first goal of the season against York,and Altrincham continued to dominate the half, playing into the wind, and both Jordan Hulme and Lewis Walters should really have scored. After the break, Gloucester were much better, and Joe Hanks levelled the scores when he scored direct from a free kick. Despite a couple of strong calls for penalties for Altrincham, that was how the score finished, and, with Gloucester playing out time for a "home" draw, it did feel like two points lost.

The ground in rural, but increasingly suburbanised surroundings, at the southern tip of Evesham, is very neat, but must be one of the more basic at Step 2. Entering in a corner, there is a long covered flat standing area behind the goal to your right, and the left hand side contains, in turn, the clubhouse and tea bar, changing rooms and and main stand. Opposite this are the dugouts and flat standing, while the far end has an open terrace. Nice views of the Cotswolds.

Before the game, we visited the Red Lion in the Market Place (highly recommended, with good beers from Cannon Royall brewery) before decamping - on my round! - to the more expensive and quieter BCM Craft Ale House, and then taking the long but straightforward walk to the ground, which has footpaths all the way. As a warning, I should mention that some fans who didn't fancy the walk had great difficulty getting a taxi, and ending up missing the kickoff.

Going back, after revisiting the Red Lion, the train from Worcester to Birmingham was cancelled, so I ended up getting home around 11.30, 15 hours after I set out; regional football!
