TLFG: 24-30 August 2020

The great return to football finally happened on Saturday with games taking place at non-league grounds all over the capital.

So how was it for you?

With many kick-offs staggered it would have been easy to see two matches, some people even saw three.

Personally I saw nothing thanks to a mammoth shift at work but I did get a bit of time to work on this during my break.

The week ahead has another good selection of games with lots of clubs from the seventh through to the 10th tiers hosting fixtures around the city.

Once again FA rules mean a maximum attendance of between 150-300 depending on the level the club plays at, so you'll need to buy in advance or turn up early to guarantee admission.

You'll also be expected to give your details on arrival for track and trace purposes.

After very successfully hosting a sold-out doubleheader on Saturday, Carshalton Athletic are straight back into action on Monday when Cray Valley PM pay them a visit. A total of 300 tickets are available for this and must be bought online in advance.

This is one of the biggest games of the week as the Robins are the only seventh-tier side who are hosting and actively encouraging supporters to attend. There are matches at several other clubs at this level too but they're being used as test events and more casual spectators won't be allowed in.

One seventh-tier side you can watch on their travels are Cray Wanderers - London's oldest club. They start the week at Whyteleafe (now cancelled) before visiting local rivals VCD Athletic on Wednesday.

Oh yes, I almost forgot, one of our local sixth-tier teams is also in action on Tuesday. National League South side Hampton & Richmond Borough make the short trip to Ashford Town as they get their pre-season underway.

Getting hold of accurate information has been a challenge and games will almost certainly change, move or get cancelled over the course of the week so please check all details before you travel with the clubs themselves, including whether spectators will be admitted.

UPDATE FRIDAY 28/08/20: - as suggested above, there have been a few matches added and cancelled over the course of the week. Most notably tonight where AFC Cubo take on Peckham Town in the London Senior Trophy Final at Cray Valley PM's ground in south-east London. There is a very limited capacity but some tickets are still available online so buy now if you want to go.

On Saturday, Carshalton Athletic are hosting National League South side Tonbridge Angels in another friendly at Colston Avenue. There is a limit of 300 so you'll also need to buy online in advance to get in.

There have been a handful of other games added on Saturday so please give the maps another look just in case.

I have tried hard to get information about any women's friendlies that might be happening but the only ones I can find are being played behind closed doors.

Finally, in case you were in any doubt, there is a huge day of football at Wembley on Saturday with the men's and women's Community Shield matches taking place but sadly no spectators will be admitted.

I think I've got to grips with the changes in Blogger and Google Maps so the map should work but if doesn't, paste the following links into your browser:

Once again, I feel this entry is a bit below normal standards but there's a lot less football on and info has been hard to come by but I hope it suffices.

Enjoy your week and get in touch if you have any questions or know of any games I might have missed.
