Oh if anyone is going and fancies taking some pics, I'd love to run another feature on Peckham.
I will take some photos on my phone, but if anyone has a proper camera, then please step forward.
I went down a few weeks back to watch Peckham, but they don't allow dogs pitchside. Which is a shame. Not sure about other pets.
Who told you that!? I've see plenty of dogs there over recent seasons.
Peckham pics, thanks to Mr Hart.
In photos: Peckham Town defeat Borden Village 2-1 in final home game of the season
And dogs now officially allowed.
Such a shame they don't have a volunterr to do a basic A4 foldover teamsheet, as in a four-pager, for games like these. Charge £2/£1 donation with the psmall programme, and it would more than pay the costs of the match officials when they have an end of season game like this, when they know there'll be a number of Hamlet fans, as well as a few groundhoppers in attendance.
Mike Smith probably covers the officials' costs, seeing as he sponsors half the advertising boards in the ground.
An assumption, but even if he does....the money made could be diverted elsewhere, like their efforts to get floddlights, or help in the kitty, where they fund a huge amount of junior sides.
Not that I'm knocking what they do per se, as I know how hard it is to get volunteers at our level, never mind theres. But these type of end of season matches when 'everyone' 'pretends' to be a Peckham Town fan is a chance to make a few pennies, when usually they play in front of a handful of people rather than fifty or more...
We could have a league winning team on Sunday in Southwark...
Peckham Town FC need your help! Support their planning application to install floodlights
Thanks editor. If you have 10 minutes to send a note of support, then I know all at Peckham Town would really appreciate it. Approval would enable the first men's team to finally move up to step 6.
Bryan Hall, the club's chair, also received an award at the civic awards yesterday. Well deserved for the over 2000 kids the club has supported in estates across Southwark over the last 13 years.
And the Menace women's team were promoted to division 2 on Sunday. About 70 supporters were in attendance to see Peckham win 6-0.
I have submitted an atypically sincere note to Southwark in support of the planning application!
I shall do likewise when I have PC access tomorrow. Peckham Town is comfortably a Step 6 set up and there is a dearth of clubs at that level across the Inner South London Boroughs. It's also the closest "proper" club with its own ground to my home, even notwithstanding the Hamlet's lockout.
Thank you to everyone who gave their time to write in support of the planning application!
Interesting article on Peckham Town coach:

I’m available for signing copies after Saturday’s match.
The hat / cap combo is going to become a fad very soon!
If you aren't tired of the football season yet, then there are four more first team games for Peckham Town this season (all free entry):
Tonight (a bit late notice perhaps!), 18.45: Tudor Sports vs PTFC men @ Cray Wanderers fantastic old ground, i.e. Oxford Road, DA14 6LW - there is a micropub about 5 mins walk away.
Saturday 4 May, 14.45: Fleetdown United vs PTFC men (DA1 2QE - walking distance from Dartford station)
Sunday 5 May, 13.30: PTFC women vs Comets LFC (Menace Arena, SE21 7EU)
Sunday 12 May, 13.30: PTFC women vs Crystal Palace LFC Development (Menace Arena, SE21 7EU) - will be tough game against a side that have won ALL of their games this season with +70 goal difference!
Great news about the floodlights approval, evening games down there will be superb.
