Thanks to all re Wimbledon Youth at Kings College Ground. Nice venue with gorgeous pavilion and a little grub thing upstairs. Place teeming with parakeets and young kids...nice atmosphere where the public are not treated with bouts of extreme paranoia as at some places.

Reports on Facebook on problems getting into Brentfords Jersey Road this season. Seems to be a case of what steward is on the gate!

Further to the above about Brentfords Jersey Road, Club website advertising Under 18 game v Ipswich Town on Saturday and states Admission is Free and the public are welcome to attend.

Manchester City's Under 18 Premier League game v Blackburn on Saturday will the first fixture at the club's new City Football Academy, but will be behind closed doors.

Should just be a one off though, to quote from the email that came with this week's U18PL and U18PDL2 bulletin ... "Manchester City's match this Saturday against Blackburn Rovers is being played behind closed doors due to this being the first weekend of their new Academy's opening. Future matches will resume with their normal spectator/scout protocol."

Has anyone had problems watching Torquay United youth games?

I might be in that area at the right time on Saturday before the FA Vase and so would watch them, also if you can get in there whereabouts is their venue?



Normally found watching Bodmin Town or AFC Wimbledon

No probs and the guy there was cooking up bacon sarnies pre match. It's just outside Newton Abbot at Seale Hayne which I think is on the Ashburton Road. Nice reception when I went.

Might be heading there myself on Saturday. Address : Seale-Hayne Training Ground, Howton Lane, off A383, nr. Newton Abbot TQ12 6NH. Bacon butties definitely an incentive!

I might also be heading to Seale Hayne on Saturday. Contacted the club today and confirmed the venue and kick off time, which is 11am.

Then again, it's a long journey for an 11am start, and options for a new ground in the afternoon look limited to parks in Torquay (Upton or Waldon), so I might change my mind.

I also contacted AFC Bournemouth who confirmed, as I expected, that Saturday's game is off as they have a Youth Cup match on Friday night. However, they did confirm that home games are played at Canford School.

See oou both there then although Trev might like to calm his missus down as my Sprocker is currently in Cheshire and will not be ticking off any grounds this weekend! Was doing Exeter Yoof v Argyle but as the pm game is Buckland v Bodmin in the Vase just up the road it makes sense.

Having another try here.
I would like to see Cambridge United v Leyton Orient U18 this Saturday and have e-mailed the home side a few days ago but, no shocks here, they have not replied. Having seen that club's callous disregard for the paying public at their friendly at Bury Town pre season I am not unduly surprised.
That being the case, does anyone know where they play?
Cheers

Cambridge United Youth team play at Clare College Sports Ground, Bentley Road, Trumpington, Cambridge.
Went to watch them v Barnet Youth a few weeks ago, no problems gaining entry and there is even a refreshment tent. At the end of Bentley Road, follow the track down and you will see the college gates ahead. On my visit there was a member of the youth squad directing cars into the car park. From the car park walk down towards the tent and pavilion building.



Total Grounds- 1355 (10).
Grounds this season- 35.
Latest New ground -Wibbandune Ground, Colliers Wood United.
Rugby Union grounds-7.
Latest-Twickenham.

As previous replies have said, venue should be Clare College ground.

No point emailing them though, I did that ahead of a visit earlier in the season (see WDYG for Sat 6 Sept). Based on the reply went to Clare College, only to find they don't use that ground during the cricket season and were instead at Pembroke College.

Best bet is to phone and speak to someone in the club shop, as they seemed to know what was going on, and were very helpful when I called in a mild panic about 10 minutes ahead of kick off on the Saturday.

Thanks all. Clare College it is weather permitting followed by Long Melford, weather permitting after a wait of around 30 years!

Had to undertake some slight negotiations with the stewards at Charlton Athletic last Saturday, despite having my Red Card and County FA pass to hand. However, once inside, a regular informed me that it was more to do with the public car park being full up and I was apparently wrangling myself a spot in the private club car park without realising it!


It does appear that the public car park there does fill up much earlier than it used to (I'm not sure it ever filled up at all up until a couple of years ago) so, if going by car, be prepared to get there early otherwise you will need to park in the school next door or out on Sparrows Lane itself.

Morecambe FC also have a new venue this season. Although they have played at Slyne with Hest FC occasionally, their regular ground is UCLan Sports Arena (formerly Preston Sports Arena), Tom Benson Way, Preston, PR2 1SG.
This is as per the club website and was also confirmed by email.

That's an interesting one. Any idea which pitch they use? I've seen Springfields play on the pitch nearest the entrance, and on the pitch inside the athletics track.

Re Morecambe U18's, I enquired about a recent Thursday morning game but in the end couldn't go. All I can tell you is that Morecambe's email confirmation stated "we're on pitch 1 at the Arena". Hope this helps.
Just to mention as well that an email exchange with Brighton & Hove Albion confirmed that no spectators are admitted to their new venue, which incidentally is at Mash Barn Lane, Lancing. I too made the decision that I wasn't going to make the journey from the midlands for an 11am kick off just to end up filling time with a stroll on the nearest beach!

It does help, "pitch one" was where I first saw Springfields Smile

I am currently looking at the possibility of going to watch Southend United U18 v Watford U18 on 3rd January, does anyone know what the current state of play is regarding members of the general public attending games at Boots & Laces ?



Watford FC supporter hence the name also follow Hull FC but rarely get to see either these days.

Have now visited over 800 grounds, progress in recent years has been rather slow and will continue to be as things stand.

I expect someone who has been here more recently than I have (September 2010) will respond, but certainly there were no problems at the time of my visit. In fact, I can't even recall any stewards on the gate. Mind you, I do tend to turn up quite early! If you want more details on the ground, my report posted on the WDYG thread can still be accessed. Worth bearing in mind that if you're driving, the entrance is immediately off a very busy dual carriageway and can catch you by surprise!

Still no problem according to a Southend supporter I know. Plenty of parking at the venue. Refreshments served from the Boots & Laces building which is a former night club.

Several pitches also here. Watched the U-18's whilst the U16's were also playing at the same time on an adjacent pitch.
