TLFG: Saturday 22 August

Greetings one and all - TLFG is BACK!!!

After over five months of Covid induced radio silence, I'm pleased to report that following the FA's recent announcements there are games taking place this Saturday which you can attend.

I've been caught on the hop a bit by this so I've cobbled this entry together quickly on the evening of what is my 15th wedding anniversary. All the big celebrations were this afternoon so I've been able to get away with it.

As for Saturday, there are a very healthy selection of games all over the capital being hosted by non-league clubs from the seventh to the 10th tiers.

Part of the FA's rules for getting these games on is a maximum attendance which varies from club-to-club depending on the level they play at but that won't exceed 300 at any of them so you'll need to buy in advance at some of the bigger ones to guarantee admission.

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

The pick of the fixtures appears to be Hanwell Town v Brentford B which kicks-off at 11am but the capacity is limited to only 200 so you'll have to get there early to have any chance.

Apart from that, there's a very appealing doubleheader at Carshalton Athletic who have back-to-back games against Walton Casuals and Worthing starting at 2pm. A whopping 300 tickets are available for this and must be bought in advance online - one ticket will get you in to both games.

There's also some seventh tier inter-league action between Metropolitan Police and Horsham at Imber Court - 300 are allowed for this but you can just pay on the gate.

At lower levels there are great variety of kick-off times with some clubs even offering free entry - all details can be found by clicking around the match map.

As I mentioned above, this has been compiled at short notice so please check all details before you travel including whether spectators will actually be admitted as some clubs haven't decided or published the details at this stage.


Annoyingly, since I last wrote, a lot of back end stuff has changed in Blogger and Google Maps so publishing the map might not go to plan. If the one above doesn't work, you should be able to view it by clicking on this link or if that doesn't work, paste the following link into your browser:

Apologies for this brief and rather rushed entry but hopefully it will do and I'll get things into a more presentable shape soon.

It's great to be back.

UPDATE (3pm, 21 August) - some new fixtures featuring ninth and 10th tier teams have been added to the map so have another look if still haven't decided


  1. Great to see you back, thanks for all the info, let's get to a game now!

    1. Thanks a lot - where did you end up going?

    2. Was comitted to watch Wanstead v Hutton cricket, but will be at Walthamstow next Saturday & Tuesday for 1st FA cup prelim

  2. Hanwell had a crowd of 200 yesterday yet Harrow Boro game on Tuesday v Potters Bar is behind closed doors . Tottenham ladies v QPR on Wed also BCD game. Confused? You bet I am.

    1. It is strange - I can only guess they haven't got the grounds up to Covid-19 standards yet or don't have enough volunteers to make it happen. In the case of Tottenham Ladies, I don't think WSL teams are allowed to admit fans yet - only third tier clubs and below but I could be wrong.
