I couple of seasons ago when we played Grays (when we lost 5-1), the Ferry was open the way there but I had to find a different method of getting back.

 

However I know it was out of action for a while for some reason or another, but assume it is back in service now?

It will probably be too much to hope for, but lets all hope for a repeat of the Southern League Cup 1st. Round 1st. Leg score on the 26th. August 1975:-

 

Gravesend and Northfleet 8 Bognor Rehis Town 2

(Bostock 4, Jeffrey 2, Woolfe & Hutchins)

 

I hope there is not a repeat of the second leg though as Bognor Regis won 3-1.

Er, do you know where Bognor is?

Pedantry alert: if only it had been just the five.

Ah, outwitted once again. I couldn't remember if it was five or six but thought I'd take the dare devil's route and guess at five. How wrong a move that was.

I remember that match, a lot of the goals were scoreed late on. I think, but this might just be my memory playing tricks, we were 2-0 down.

In answer to your question yes, but as I was doing other things at the time of typing the question, for some reason my thoughts were drawn to Clacton

This begs the interesting question of naming Fleet players in the last 50 years who have scored 4 or more in a game.
Bostock , Portway (6), Damien Richardson (4) and Steve Restarick (4 or 5) spring to minds.
Any advances?

He got a ball full in the eye - caused permant eye damage but not full blindness. Carried on scoring heavily throughout his latter career in Essex, and still turns out on occaisions for testamonials.

Still a regular vistor to Stonebridge Road, with his young lad, where he is still revered.

One can only wonder what he would be worth in today's market?

If travelling by car I suggest you park in the cricket club car park in Hawthorn Road,there is no charge for this,and this is where the team coaches park.It also has the bonus of being right alongside the sports bar,also there is a turnstile entrance into the ground so handy all round.Directions,assuming you enter Bognor on the A29 [London Rd]after passing Tesco's[on right hand side]go straight across roundabout to the next roundabout,take the exit signposted Chichester, take the left turn after the pub Hawthorn road,continue through traffic lights,the fourth turning is Nyewood Lane[ground]but continue along Hawthorn,entrance is 400yards on left.There is street parking but gets congested with the bowls club and tennis club always active.Hope this helps.P.S.the sports bar opens about 1.00p.m.but I can also recommend the Wheatsheaf pub in Hawthorn road just past the traffic lights.
