@ Harlington Sports Ground, 3G Pitch
No Admission or Programme.
I had been here for a game previously, when the ground was shared with Chelsea, who had their training ground here at the time (Chelsea U19 0 Norwich City U19 1, 21st September 2002), but that game was played on a grass pitch, in the far left hand corner of the complex if looking from the entrance to the car park. Nowadays, it is Queens Park Rangers who share the facility and they have a fully railed pitch, with advert board infills, immediately to the left of the entrance of the car park. Today’s game was being played on the 3G Pitch, which is to the right of the entrance, sandwiched between the road and the artificial hockey pitch.
East London were far the better team, but somehow managed to nearly throw it away, having been in total control and coasting to victory.
A nice early finish meant ample time to head off for an evening match, west along the M4.
