    League website is showing a pitch inspection due for 8am tomorrow:

    Fixtures - The Bostik Football League

    Anyone intending to travel by train should note that there are extensive engineering works on the normal route from Liverpool Street via Ipswich, meaning a rail replacement bus from Newbury Park to Ingatestone, train from there to Norwich, and then another replacement bus service from Norwich to Lowestoft.

    I'm intending to travel from King's Cross to Norwich via Cambridge, then rail replacement bus from there to Lowestoft. Anyone else intending to do this route should note that it works out a lot cheaper to split the tickets at Cambridge, i.e. buying a ticket to Cambridge and a separate one from there to Lowestoft, than getting one ticket all the way.

    What sort of ticket price is it with splitting? without splitting it looked to be about 50 quid when i checked last night

    For me personally it's £12.85 return from Sydenham Hill to Cambridge (with Network Card discount) then £18.90 Cambridge to Lowestoft return. I think the £12.85 is a super off-peak, which isn't available form all stations. (It's about £18 if I go from Sydenham on the Overground rather than Sydenham Hill which is Southeast Trains.)

    Given the prospect of a postponement I'll go to King's Cross on my Oystercard, then if the game is on buy tickets there and catch the 0914 to Cambridge.

    Seems we were starting a thread at the same time...there's a very good chance the match will be postponed.

    Selfishly I hope so because I want to go to Lowestoft but can't make this one.

    Presumably waterlogged? It's been very, very wet just now around here.

    There are fountains just like that on the sea front in Lowestoft. Other side of the bridge from the football ground...

    We’ll only be lucky enough to see those in action if the replay is delayed until after the end of March though. Which may be the case I guess?

    Did the North France Bromley v Maidstone Utd derby today.

    Plus points , excellent football played on a superb 3G pitch by two clubs used to the surface. To be fair to Bromley they serve decent crowds in that the single queue for the bar works well, the giant screen plus smaller tellies (5 no.) inside the bar works for those that want to drink in the bar while watching the match inside as the shutters are closed.

    Down points are loads of silly conveyor belt wannabe yoof hoolies in Stone Island and Canada Goose clobber, gobbling off over the segregation fences, meaning costs for proper policing.

    Did Tooting vs Wingate. Good to catch up with W&F friends but the football was beyond shocking.

    Did the same for Bromley against Halifax Town a couple of weeks ago. It wasn’t segregated but your point about the ‘yoof hoolies’ is well made. One was chucked out while we were there for being a complete prat.

    Also agree their bar was well organised and coped with the ludicrous constraints of National League drinking. You can now go to Bromley and spend the entire match drinking in a bar with the blinds down. But it’s fine because you can see the match that is being played 10 yards away on a live feed to half a dozen televisions and a projector screen. Odd.

    The bar also had Westerham Brewery beer out of the barrel at £3.50 a pint.

    Went to Bromley v. Workington last Tuesday...no segregation, thought the Bromley stewards were over to top to say the least, one woman in particular swearing at the visiting Workington fans and telling them to go back north, but not as polite as I put it.

    Hopefully the Tuesday after Needham Market away = 4 day bender in Suffolk!

    League website shows this game rescheduled for Tuesday 20th March, with Needham Market away on Saturday 24th.

    Yep, but all midweek games are at risk of further change, pending our Brentwood Cup game. Good chance it might be off again next week going by forecast, and if we win, then would expect that a league game would be postponed as the final is mid-April.

    It makes for depressing reading:

    One of the things I fear is that while our attendances are fantastic, they drop considerably when compared to a midweek game. At this particular time, with our owners those “missing people” mean everything.

    As this is our bread & butter I only hope that the Dulwich Hamlet crowd turn out for the re-arranged Tonbridge Angels game.

    And the team goes again at Lowestoft tomorrow evening in this rescheduled league fixture. Just booked my train tickets and a B&B for the night, as you won't get back the same day by public transport. Advance train tickets going for £18 each way from Liverpool Street, changing at Norwich or Ipswich. Ground is only around half a mile from Lowestoft station close to the town centre.
