Met Police 1 Crawley 2. FA Cup round 1


A rather atypical game. Crawley took a two goal lead shortly after half time, deserved, Met Police then battled away and controlled much of the second half, scoring a goal 10 minutes from time. In the last 10 minutes all hell broke loose. Met police hit the post with a shot, had shots cleared off the line, forced Paul Jones into two great saves, but just could not get the equalise they deserved. A very decent crowd too around 1500, compared to a normal crowd usually in the 120-150 region.

It has to be said that Met police are a good team and this is a nice club. I almost forgot to mention that 150 places separate these two sides, with Met  Police playing in the Ryman Premier. Altogether a great day out and I will return.

Met Police FC Mascot. Definitely the most unusual football mascot in the world


Few photos from today. FA Cup round 1 Met Police v Crawley Town. Great game. Will post tomorrow about that but here is the mascot and we now know his name!! PC SO Steve. This has to be the most unusual mascot in the world. He goes around talking to the children and playing football with them!

More photos of the Oddest football mascot in the world


I posted a photo of an odd mascot, a policeman, at the South Park V Met Police FA Cup game last week. I have had an unbelievable amount of hits because of this so am adding a few photos! Dont just look at this stuff but come and read my blog more often!

South Park FC. A football club in the combined counties football league


I had never heard of South Park until 2 weeks ago. they play in the Combined counties League which sits below the Ryman league and I think is hailed as Step 5. Put more simply they need 5 promotions to be in the football league. they have  a small ground on the outskitrs of Reigate. Small floodlights. Small clubhouse. Fenced off pitch surrounded by concrete standing and a small stand that holds maybe 100. A nice compact ground. Friendly too.

A few photos to show you what their existence is like. Some more will be found on my website http://www.footballgroundz.co.uk
