Leafe v Walton & Hersham

Playing East Grinstead in the week we scored one more goal than we did against them earlier in the season. Can we do the same tomorrow against Walton & Hersham?

We should have a pretty strong side out with the following all coming back into the side (no promises): Dylan, JT, Bentley, Roscoe. Also the possibility of a debut for Jordan Bird - sounds as though Alex could be struggling with his groin.

Palace fans note: we'll be showing the Eagles match in the bar (KO 5.30pm).
Spurs fans note: ditto above.

If we hadn't have scored 5 against them they would have conceded less goals than us and Faversham this season so expect a tighter defence than when we last played them.
They maybe 12 points behind us but have 2 games in hand so it's a 6 pointer tomorrow.

Looking forward to another cut and thrust attacking display from the boys combined with a ruthless defensive performance to warm the cockles of all our hearts and especially Adam before he departs back up north to meet lovely northern people and drink cheap beer and make all taxpayers proud to know that our country will be in good hands when most of us have departed this sad world.

Leafe Vs Swans

Also they have only scored 30, 3rd worse in the League. A great feast of entertaining footy for the Swans this year then!!!The last game was a fairly dour affair until the last 11 minutes. A goal up after 1 minute, then 4 goals in the last 11.On a pitch it must be said that looked like the mower and sheep had gone missing. Looking forward to seeing how they go on a flat pitch!!!

We might well have won if we could have seen what we were doing. A couple of years ago we had to play some home matches elsewhere because the floodlighting was judged to be not up to scratch, and I'd surprised if it was any worse than yours.

I agree, if we could have seen what we were doing we would have stuck five past you like usual?

Another unwise advantage is that our players get to play in front of an atmosphere don't you agree?

The difference is, in a month or two we're having new floodlights installed while your ground looks set to be bulldozed.

I got a good view of our 5th goal going in at their place, I must admit

Strange post, yes our lights are not great and about to be replaced but everything else about our ground is far superior to that shit hole at Stompond lane

I wasn't looking to compare the two clubs' facilities overall - and I'm sure you're aware that it's Elmbridge Borough Council, rather than the club itself, that should bear the brunt of your criticisms of our ground. The point was simply to question whether the lighting at yesterday's match conformed with Ryman League standards.

We had a satisfactory inspection done before the season started, so yes.

was happy with overall lights but did comment afterwards about some darker places. I dont know about you but it always seems brighter on the days you start with floodlights on , ratht than when they come on just before half time.

Has the Swans groundsman found his mower yet, cos when we played there the field was too long for rugby let alone football!!!!!!!
Maybe they could get a goat!

Yes I agree with Cambridge swan, our lights are poor but meet the required standard. However we about to have them replaced which will give us an average of 240 lux across the whole pitch, double the 120 lux that is required.

Shame about Stompond Lane, I remember running there in my youth. All ways been a balance between the athletics and football at the ground. Recall many seasons ago in early August the 18 yard box was covered in potholes from the shot putt circle!

It was very sad to see half the ground fenced off. Athletic grounds/football grounds don't do it for me. At the Croydon arena the ball spends more time bouncing along the rubber track than on the pitch.

Enclosed grounds and 3G pitches. Bring it on.
