With a free Saturday 'The Flash','Little Me' and I were going to go to either the Ampthill Town v St Albans City Reserves fixture or to the Harpendon Rovers v London Lions game.But waking up and finding that my car had a very flat and torn tyre soon put paid to both games.After getting the tyre repaired we did not have much time to find a 'new' ground until I remembered an article I had read in The non-league digest about Hertford & District side Nazeing FC. Soooooooo a quick trip to Bumbles Green and we made it in time for the pre-match warm up.
The ground itself was quite basic with no fencing around the pitch - although three sides had trees or bushes to stop the ball going anywhere- a small clubhouse/dressing room and a good size car park behind the goal which you reach from a driveway from the main road.
The match was played at a fast pace from the off,with 3rd vs 5th both evenly matched.Nazeing went in at half time 1-0 up and almost from kick off Roydon Spartans equalised. the match remained at 1-1 and the points shared which was a very fair result.
