    I'm going to cycle to this one. Weather looks amenable at the moment.

    Anyone want to join? I was planning to set-off from Camberwell about 11am.

    Liam - have you sent Dorking a response yet?

    Lots of good suggestions...I would have thought a couple of barrels of real ale from Surrey Hills brewery would be ideal for the majority.

    Love to but my MkII Raleigh Chopper is unlikely to make it that far

    Dorking Wanderers have confirmed teh following options will be available in their clubhouse:

    3 kegs of Shere Drop from Surrey Hills brewery as well as cans of Fursty Ferret and Tanglefoot and the usual lagers and ciders.

    Cobbett's is quirky and well worth a visit for the real ale drinker, but it's basically an off licence with a small bar at the back. The only time I've been it was packed around 5pm on a Saturday so it's not really going to work for groups of more than 2 or 3 turning up. Unless you get there at opening time and piss off all the regulars by packing it out! If it's too busy to stay there are several traditional type town centre pubs nearby around West Street and South Street - The Cricketers and the King's Arms have been decent enough on my previous visits. The Red Lounge in Dene Street has been in the Good Beer Guide for the last few years but I found it a bit too trendy for my taste.

    Surrey Hills Brewery adjacent to the ground is open from 10am to 5pm: Surrey Hills Brewery - Home of the famous Shere Drop

    Oystercards will be valid on the 465 bus even though it's well outside Greater London.

    I would like to lay claim to being one of the original Dorking Wanderers.

    In the truest sense of that term:

    Yep. My soft spot for this team has now been firmly established.

    I once swam in the River Mole at the bottom of it while my Dad was fishing. Banged my knee on a submerged tree, hurt like fuck.

    Just so someone who by origin is far more bourgeois than me can make an issue of it on a Kingstonian or Billericay forum, I feel duty-bound to point out that Box Hill is also the song for a vitally important scene in Jane Austen's novel Emma.

    Honestly, as if we didn't already know that.

    So did I. Not the same trip though.

    I was once in a car with friends driving aroudn somewhere near the Surrey/Sussex boundary. The B52's song 'Love Shack' was playing on the car stereo, and no more than one or two seconds after the line "It's fifteen miles to the Love Shack" played, we passed a road sign indicating "Dorking 15 miles".

    Are you sure it wasn't woking?

    I used to get stoned in a friend's shed in Woking.

    For reasons that only seem bizarre twenty years later, his brother kept an old mattress in it, under which he kept a stash of 1970s grot mags.

    So, you know. Nearly fits the description.

    I'm sorry, it's difficult to follow who is who on here, when there's so many people called Duncan supporting the Club. I think I know who pompeydunc is now, it's confusing following who is who when there are so many nom de plumes on this site, and what with him saying he is a groundhopper... I will change my post on the club site now...

    We're 9th behind Folkestone and Margate who also have 11 points but better goal average.

    Not the most convincing win, but 3 points and clean sheet is always good!
    Hayes goal!!

    Marc having a polite word with the ref as to why our players weren't being protected.
