The great thing about non-league football is the ability to get up close to players and spectators alike. Stand where you want to and talk with whom you like. For me Carshalton is one of the friendliest places to watch football and always a good matchday experience. Decent burgers too. The new 3G pitch adds a little more interest to the visit. A few photos just to give a flavour.
A decent enough game with Carshalton unfortunate to lose this game with an own goal followed by a poor piece of goalkeeping. They then created enough chances to have at least drawn the game but luck was not on their side. Leighton looked the more physical experienced side and maybe that was what Carshalton lacked. They also had a scary goalkeeper , Sam Mazurek and a physical centre forward, Alex Woodbine. There already is an excellent match report from Chris Blanchard which can be accessed here, so enough about the game.
