Not in London though. We won't have trouble with real fans like Wealdstone, its the rural types.
Oh I see.
I totally agree with this, I often take my young son and he is prone to a toilet visit. When we are down the far end it’s a long old trek back to the toilets. Also the wind coming through is also an issue, not sure if we can get that sorted w
Out of interest, why do we always attack the bar end first half?
So we are closer to the bar
I guess our team habitually warms up in the same half as the home dugout before the match, and whoever wins the toss generally chooses to kick off rather than change ends. It's been the same at Champion Hill for years.
i would prefer the attack the Bog End during the second half, purely for the proximity to the bogs.
Perhaps you should run that past Gavin Rose and the players, but I doubt it's very high on their list of priorities.
For clarity, is the bog end where the penalties were taken last week?
No, the Bog End is at the other end (presumably named so because the bogs are at that end)
Oh, right. That makes sense. I thought it was the other end because the pitch is often wet and bog-like at the penalty shoot-out end
Actually, the rule now is that whoever wins the toss has the choice of ends - the loser gets to kick off. In my experience, very few teams win the toss and then opt to change ends these days.
It happened at Champion Hill the most times in a season that I can remember in my time going to Dulwich Hamlet matches. The sun is the biggest factor there I suppose.
I think some of our bigger rivals sometimes do it to throw us off our established routine.
Yeah, that is it. There is an area of peatland not far behind that stand I believe.
Think we need hackbridgeharry to clarify this
Tooting's old Sandy Lane ground had a "Bog End", so named by the locals as there was an old school open air gents urinal down the back of the terrace. I guess the end with the equivalent facilities at the KiNKy Stadium would naturally also be the "Bog End" and nothing to do with the pitch.
It was also the best way to bunk in over the fence when at school, with little money, when I didn't want to give them my money, as it was set down below the terracing!
At Champion Hill I sometimes (when it was sunny) wondered why we didn't attack the Dog Kennel Hill/car wash/car park end in the first half so the sun was in the opposition goalkeeper's eyes? In the second half it went behind the stand and wasn't a problem for Phil/Preston.
I also reckon we have scored more goals at the Dog Kennel Hill end (second half) in recent years. What does the Panther think?
Dog Kennel Hill end if you don’t mind, I’ve been seriously reprimanded on here for getting it wrong. Thank you.
I called it Car Wash end
From what I can estimate from Google Maps, the long side of KiNKy that has no seating is the Opposite Toilets Opposite Non Stand.
