    It would be fair to say that Peckham Town have quite a fixture pileup for April/May. Expect many evening midweek games (when the clocks goes forward) for every DHFC fans' 2nd non-league team. They are fourth bottom, but it's in their hands to win the league!

    It's very naughty of you to wind up Mishi like that!

    It's alright...I'm used to spouting Duncan talking shit! Still...give it another year or two & The Hamlet will become his second favourite non-league side, as Pompey contine to plummet.

    Nothing against them mind, they're my second favourite Hampshire professional side, after Southampton. And would become my second favourite non-league side, after Eastleigh, if the Spitfires haven't jumped over them by then.

    Not edited by me... When I put in a ";)" it means I'm joking, or 'bantz' as Dunc might call it...but I'm not. Well I am...to be honest never been particularly keen on Pompey...

    Of those away games...the choices will be Bexlians, who play at Crown Wood College, in Eltham. (Done with our youth Team, now counted as a 'tick' by me!) No photos of the venue though.

    Forest Hill Park, who play in Catford, at Ladywell Arena. Been there many times down the years. Home to Lewisham Borough, in the Kent Invicta League.
    Will be a 'normal' kick off, if midweek, as it's floodlit.


    Halstead United. The address listed has Halstead having a 'TN' postcode, which I assume is the Tonbridge area.
    Not been there.

    Farnborough Old Boys Guild. Farnborough, Kent. Bus ride from Bromley South station, nice social club, and a small bit of cover, with grass banking.


    And next Tuesday 31st March, they are away to Phoenix Sports Reserves, their ground is about a mile or so from Barnehurst Station. Again a venue i've been to several times. Will be a 'normal' kick off, as they have lights.

    Completely unrelated, I work with someone who used to play for Forest Hill Park...

    "The game against Long Lane on Thursday is their derby"

    Eh? Long Lane are based in Kidbrooke. Surely their 'derby' game, if you can call anything a 'derby' game at this level, as there are very few, if any, fans to create a 'deby' atmosphere, it would be against Forest Hill Park? Much more of a 'derby' game than Long Lane! And Blackheath United, although a home game, is closer,as they are based just past Catford, at Bellingham.

    Using your 'rule of thumb' half of the division would probably be 'derbies'...

    A derby doesn't have to be the nearest team. Wouldn't ours be Fisher in that case? And what about Palace/Brighton?

    The management and Chairman Brian consider it their derby, and the games are often feisty apparently. I'll let them know that you don't agree...

    Gillingham have no geographical rivals and consider Swindon to be their derby, for reasons long since lost in the mists of time.

    No, but they are looking to get them installed. A mobile company has offered to pay for them in exchange for having its antennae on top of them.

    When we spoke to the Peckham players after the game we went to, the name Long Lane came up in conversation. One of them simply shook his head and muttered, "I fucking hate Long Lane".

    i think their pitch was dug up the other day - possibly to do with that?
    it is strange

    i went to a listed fixture about 6 weeks back and there was no one there...

    N.B. Brian has just told me that KO for the game on Thursday has been brought forward to 6.15pm (15 minutes earlier than initially published.

    They lost their first league game since September on Monday. Losing 1-0 in the last minute after the opposition had parked the bus all game. They are all well up for Thursday apparently...

    The main pitch was dug up months ago. When I went to a game in November it was played on the second pitch (furthest from the entrance) which was already quite heavy at that time, hence all their games were postponed due to waterlogging for quite a long spell.

    I quite fancy tomorrow night.
