5 GROUNDS THAT NEED TO BE ON YOUR RADAR



1) Brickfield Lane


Starting off on North London, Enfield to be exact where Hadley FC call home in the Essex Senior League since 1992. Founded in 1882, Hadley FC is the oldest football club playing in Barnet. Park Royals FC from the Barnet Sunday League also share this facility.



2) Vale Farm


It would be wrong not to give West London a shoutout in this list and where better than the home of English football. Current occupiers, Wembley FC were formed in 1946 in the post-Second World War football boom and maybe best remembered for their FA Cup campaign in 2011/12 season under Terry Venables recruiting the likes of former internationals Ray Parlour, Martin Keown, David Seaman, Graeme Le Saux, Claudio Caniggia and Brian McBride.


Unfortunately, Wembley Stadium doesn't make the cut but neighbours Wembley FC do where Middlesex County Combination League side Cricklewood Wanderers play their football.



3) Wadham Lodge Sports Ground


Heading over to Walthamstow now with Wadham Lodge who work closely in partnership with Matchday Centres to help provide some of the best kept artificial pitches in East London.


Playing home to the likes of Clapton CFC (before they move back to the Old Spotted Dog) and of course Walthamstow FC, you're never short of action in E17.



4) St. Paul's Sports Ground


Time for a trip down SOUTH to Bermondsey where supporter owned football club Fisher FC call their manor. Originating from Bermondsey, Fisher play ball in Step 5 of the non-league pyramid in the Southern Counties East Football League.


Fisher who play in black and white (great shirt choice btw!) live by the motto "football first" also have their own film crew to capture those wonderful footballing moments.



St. Paul's is a popular choice for cup finals, tournaments and football-related events hosting the likes of DC Football Academy, Rising Ballers and Fresh Ego Kid FC over the past year alone.


5) Market Road Football Pitches


Last but no means least, we end up at Market Road pitches located in Islington. Run by leisure providing organisation Better, Market Road offers the choice of 11-a-side and 5-a-side matches for all of your ball-playing needs.


Arguably, the Islington Midweek League is the most-known competition that is played there which this season saw NK Dons defeat Hilltop FC to lift the Ken Doherty Memorial Cup 19/20!
