280m trip for @guildfordcity

Methold Minbus 007 GCFC are away to Bridgwater Town FC next weekend, a mere 280 mile round trip. In a minibus that will only do 62mph, so 3 hours each way then, plus a stop somewhere for a feed & probably fuel.

This league is ridiculous in the amount of travel that Guildford City FC & Godalming Town FC have to do. It makes it particularly hard for players who have have work commitments to make it for weekday away matches. Last night was a case in point, despite the brilliant result, it was a cobbled together side, that probably a good few had never played together before.

Who’d have thought it, City break their away-day record, recording their first victory away from home this season, they also broke their 11 match losing streak and kept their first clean sheet of the season.

In match where the home team felt that they would give us a spanking, City managed to stay in the game despite Bishops Cleeve hitting the woodwork three times & forcing some good saves from the city shot stopper. In the second half, City’s Lance BANTON-BROWN struck twice to put the smiles back on the faces of the hard-core city fans that travelled the 200 mile round trip.

Have to add, the stadium lighting was absolutely shocking, for those that know (3200ISO, 1/160sec wide open, and that was at the brighter end).

Well Done City, onwards & upwards. Bridgewater at the week-end 280+ mile round trip. COYG!!
