Can we enter the ground and watch this game Les.
No, Behind closed doors. No supporters allowed as per government restrictions.
This is becoming a joke. How many people would normally attend a friendly like this a couple of hundred?
I recently went to the Surrey versus Hampshire blast match at the oval limited to 2500 which is approximately 10% of the ovals capacity. Also before that another test event there. Also one day of the two day friendly Surrey versus Middlesex.
Recently my friend went to Leatherhead versus Dorking Wanderers restricted to 600(!) Attendees.
Les what's the difference between Fetcham Grove and Beveree?
Smaller clubs will go to the wall because if these restrictions.
Yesterday I spent a pleasant afternoon at Kenton court meadow watching Sunbury with around fifty others not including four teams of players all distancing themselves socially
Don't shoot the messenger !
The difference is that the National League is treated as an elite league. Leagues below us are not. We have to follow the rules that apply to the premier and efl. The club has no choice but to follow the rules currently in place.
We cannot even contemplate a Test Event at this time. Currently the rules will be in place until 1st October .
We have been to watch recreational cricket and to our away friendlies but going to beveree is a different thing entirely.
There was the strange situation the other week where Cray Wanderers, who groundshare with Bromley, were allowed spectators, when they played each other in a pre season friendly because they were the home team, and not classed as an elite club, but if Bromley had been the home team it would have had to be behind closed doors.
That's why it's so ridiculous
In the case that I mentioned, yes. but fully understandable when both teams have to abide by the same rules.
With no football involving Hampton for a few weeks at the earliest now, I may well temporarily adopt Spelthorne Sports, my nearest club, for a bit of competitive action until we're allowed to attend the Bev again. It won't be the same but at least it's something...
Might pop to met police
Thank you Les. Will have to stand on my step ladder and watch it over the fence behind the goal.
Stepladder? Are you a dwarf?
if you can find a spot in the undergrowth to set up a stepladder, then good luck, dipsy !
The full size ladders don’t fit in the club car.
Well at least i can drive a car. And allowed out for evening games.
Someone has started to cut back the overgrowth so we can get the balls back and you can just about get behind there..
Here's a thought to raise a few quid for the club. You and MK could each stand on a ladder and we could, for a fee, throw wet sponges at the two of you!
If we all turned up with garden equipment, could we say we were working on the ground!?
How much many sponges would £20 get me???
WTF are you talking about????
No good your not allowed in the ground.
Roll up Roll up get your sponges here. Ok Mr Barbel Start the club car lets get out of here.
Who said I’d be inside the ground to throw them anyway? I’d use sponges soaked in paint to make maximum impact...
