That was enjoyable away day despite the minority of bellends. those that stayed over went to the Lifeboat (they promIsed earlier in the day that they would stay open until 2am) And they did i think, memory got bit fuzzy but they had folk bands on and stuff.

Felt like death warmed up today. Had to go to the pub with my mother this evening but she had a pint as went home, also met an urbanite beforehand to have a couple of liveners with.

right what are we going to do for the next few months? No doubt there will be some socials along the way and some demos we can get behind. Each season I watch the Hamlet, I meet more and more excellent people

One of my memory cards stuffed full of photos from the game has seriously fucked up so it may be a while before I get anything published.

I actually thought the stewards were very good, considering...it was only a few antagonistic dickheads from them...but the stewards SHOULD have picked up on it earlier..
I am hearing they are being reported for a smoke bomb, when they got the second, and for a fan on the pitch after it.
To be honest...I expect a few dickheads in this situation...no worse than one of our fans screaming at their keeper in the second half that he 'wanted to fuck his wife'...swings & roundabouts really...
Unfortunately that's small town England for you. It sounds like Whyteleafe had it far worse a few miles along the Kent coast at Folkestone for their D1S play off semi a couple of weeks back. The annoying thing is that's probably the first time they've been to the ground all season (with the possible exception of the early season league match with Maidstone) and they spoil it for Hamlet fans who've been following their team all over south east England all season, and also for some of their own loyal regulars. The Margate crowd seemed fairly civilised for our league visit in January, and for the FA Cup visit last season when I was there.

Typo...you meant Merstham. But yes, some of their fans were apologetic...but I think even some of their decent ones can't quite fathom some of our support! ;)

Whyteleafe fans had problems there for the play off semi too. It was all over both club's messageboards.

after all that has happened is anyone just glad the season is over ?
As EDC says..I'd rather be in the final tomorrow. As it is...if it's not raining I'll probably pop over there as a neutral. Not really supporting either. Got a lot of time for Gary McCann, the Hendon manager, so my heart wants them to win. But my head says Margate, so we don't have to compete against their huge budget next season.

I'd rather have another visit to Margate (with Dreamland open) than face another trudge up to the suburban dullness of Hendon /Harrow's ground.
From a day out point of view and playing a match in front of a decent attendance it's Margate for me too, for footballing reasons it would be better if they were promoted and out of the way.

Well we will have to go to Harrow anyway, & Hendon are hoping to re-locate at some stage to Kingsbury; at the old Kingsbury Town ground.

Reasonable ground, ok bar, not far from from the station, in the London travelcard zones...there could be worse...
