    Yes, you can see the stands in the background in some shots. They can get a fair few hundred in there I would guess.

    A beautiful day enjoyed by a very respectable crowd which must have been around 400, bumped up by a sizeable following from Sheppey.
    I had been here before but having not had much of a football fix(like us all), I thought that I'd nip down the road as only 40 minutes by train from Bromley.
    As for the boozer, my chum knew of this one and he picked out a gem. Very different and pleasant, you could almost forget you were in Strood!

    400 is a decent crowd. That's not far off Checkatrade group stage crowds at the Valley :emoticon-0177-toivo <hug> <applause>

    Is that micropub in the ground? Looked like fun, though all those logs? At that size, light a fire and you would risk the whole place going up!

    @Smudger603 needs to show me some respect and concern.
    Since my twinge last July I have undergone many tests. On one visit to a consultant my weight and (lack of)height was measured. I was pleased to see I have still maintained the weight I lost, but I discovered I have SHRUNK <wah>. I am now 5.33 instead of 5.5! As you get older you can tend to lose inches, at this rate I'll be 3' by the time I'm 60<yikes>
    Have a nice weekend members.
