  1. Hi all, I went to the Chesham United vs Whyteleafe FA Trophy Third Qualifying Round fixture yesterday. It was a fantastic advert for the game, finishing 2-2 with the Generals taking it on a penalty shoot out. For a full report of the match, the day, and photos, please check this out: Chesham United vs Whyteleafe Regards, GRT
  2. Hi all, I went to this match as a neutral photographer/blogger yesterday, for what was a pretty dominant and resounding victory for the hosts. I've put together this report, with quite a few pictures - hopefully it's of interest to some. https://thegrassrootstourist.com/2020/10/18/hayes-yeading-united/ Regards, GRT
  3. Took the opportunity whilst working in Manchester to get along to Hyde United vs FC United of Manchester. I've put together this report with a few pictures - I like to think it's from a neutral perspective, and hopefully it's of interest to a few... Hyde United vs FC United of Manchester Regards, GRT
  4. Hi all, Chertsey Town picked up a comfortable 4-0 victory over Ashford Town (Middx) at Alwyns Lane last night, to move up to 6th in the Isthmian League South Central Division. Read about the match, and see some (pretty dark) photos here: https://thegrassrootstourist.com/2020/02/05/chertsey-town/ Regards, GRTourist
  5. Hi all, I went along to Beveree tonight on yet another absurdly cold night, to watch the Beavers host Slough Town. A decent match, with a deserved win for the visitors.

  6. Hi, On a genuinely horrid evening last night, Maidstone and Chippenham played out a pretty grim 0-0 draw, which I was fortunate enough to be there to watch. If you want to get a feeling for the misery, have a read of the match report and check out the photos here: https://thegrassrootstourist.com/2019/12/11/maidstone-united/ Regards, GRTourist
  7. A cracking tie between the league leaders Chesham United and the Met Police. With Chesham on a five game winning run, and the Met Police three without a win, few would have predicted the Police taking the spoils with a 93rd minute winner. See the photos, and real a full match report, here: https://thegrassrootstourist.com/2019/12/01/met-police-fc/ Regards, GRTourist
  8. Not technically a Southern League match, but Southern League Met Police hosted Tilbury in the FA Trophy today. Photos and match report of an engaging 4-3 home win here: https://thegrassrootstourist.com/2019/10/26/metropolitan-police/ Regards, GRTourist
  9. Hi all, Carshalton and Leatherhead played out a pretty absorbing 1-0 home victory on Bank Holiday Monday. For pictures of the match, and a full report, see the link below. Carshalton Athletic vs Leatherhead Regards, GRTourist
  10. Hi all, I went to the morning match at Gander Green Lane today, and wrote up this match report with a few pictures. A good lunchtime match in the sun between two sides who worked hard considering the Bank Holiday workload. Sutton Common Rovers vs Banstead Athletic
  11. Hi, First home match of the season for Taunton Town, as they hosted newly promoted Yate Town. Both sides had lost their opening game by a three goal margin, though most would expect Taunton to turn that around against Yate... Read about the match, and see the pictures, here: Taunton Town 0 - 4 Yate Town Regards, GRTourist
  12. Hi all, I stuck this up here last season, and was widely inaccurate with my predictions as expected. Not expecting to fare any better this time around, but if anyone's interested, here is my season preview for this year's National League, on the Grass Roots Tourist website. GR Tourist's Season Preview All the best in the upcoming season, GRTourist

  14. Hi all, After two enthralling encounters this evening, we've narrowed down the South's representatives in the Super Play Offs to the Met Police and Poole Town. I went along to Imber Court (I'll be there on Monday, too) and put together this photographic report of proceedings: Met Police vs Salisbury Kind regards, GRTourist
  15. On Bank Holiday Monday I joined over 600 others to watch Gosport Borough take on Wimborne Town. A vital match at the bottom of the table, Gosport deservedly took all three points. Go to the links for photos of the match, and a neutral's view of the game: https://thegrassrootstourist.com/2019/04/23/gosport-borough/ Regards, GRTourist

  18. Hi all, Sorry for intruding - I was at the game today taking photos and put together this match report & pictures. https://thegrassrootstourist.com/2018/08/18/slough-town-fc/ Hopefully it will be of interest to someone, and if anyone knows the chap who follows Torquay from Leicester please point him in this direction as I was talking to him pre-match! Good luck for the season GR Tourist
