Note The Saintsí home at the Playing Fields was, until their transfer, a quintessential Isthmian League venue: tucked away in a Home Counties town, surrounded by greenery ... and unchanged to the extent that visiting it is a bit like stepping out of a time machine. The club has played there since 1952, and the stand was built by volunteers four years later. It has been re-roofed and re-cladded since then, but its numbered wooden seats are still providing good service. Unfortunately the large clubhouse that extends along half of the near touchline (built in 1985) obscures the view of a large part of the pitch. If that wasnít bad enough, there are also a few roof supports and a floodlight pylon to contend with! A small lean-to added on to the clubhouse provides additional shelter. There are a few token steps of terracing set into the shallow grass bank behind the near goal, and also at the opposite end; whilst the two dugouts have alternate wooden seats in the club colours - a nice touch. Local building regs will probably ensure that nothing much changes until the ground is inevitably sold for development and the club has a new ground built as part of the deal. DB
