    Thought I'd start a thread for this and see who's up for a bit of Cup Fever? Cray Valley play at Greenwich Borough's ground in Middle Park Avenue, Eltham SE9 5HT. Bit of an awkward train journey - Lee is the nearest station but the 122 or 321 bus will take you to the Yorkshire Grey Roundabout or the 160 bus will drop you outside the ground.

    Either bus goes from Lewisham. Easy peasy. Maccie Dees at the Yorkshire Grey for food, but the burgers are ok in the ground as well. So plenty for those coming straight from work, no pubs in the immediate vicinity.

    The 160 goes from Catford, just in case that wasn't clear.

    Yes, sorry - 160 can be picked up from Catford outside Lewisham Town Hall. 321 from Lewisham or New Cross. 122 from Woolwich, Lewisham, Crofton Park or Sydenham. No nearby pubs of note but their clubhouse was OK when we went to the Greenwich Borough match earlier in the season. There is a Fullers pub, The Lord Northbrook just across the road from Lee Station but you'd then need to walk (5 mins or so) upto Baring Road (South Circular) to pick up aforementioned 160 bus.

    Eltham Station and probably Mottingham station are closer than Lee.

    MASSIVE game. Clash of the TITANS.

    We're going to shred 'em. Make mulch of them. Squeeze them together into cardboard.
    Or something.

    Last time I declared a journey less than straightforward, I had the online equivalent of the Wrath Of Khan descending on me.

    However, I will point that a stroll to Denmark Hill rewards with a direct train to the UKIP-enriched pastures of Eltham. No norf aaand sarf nonsense.

    Just make sure you don't stay on the train to Dartford!
