Coming back to the first post of this thread and what a wonderful way to raise some money for a good cause, namely Rennie Grove Hospice Care, it's not a million miles between each SSML Premier Division ground, well 926 apparently and I didn't think it was anywhere near that many. The article does state that there are 20 other football grounds in the SSML Premier Division which isn't entirely accurate as Baldock Town and Arlesey Town share as do, or did, Harefield United and Broadfields United however maybe Mr Motyczak, the Harpenden Town Chairman, and other Club participants are going to Rayners Lane as well where Broadfields United will share next season:

Harpenden Town Football Club members are putting their spare time off the pitch to good use by raising much-needed funds for Rennie Grove Hospice Care. They will be covering 926 miles, either on foot or by bike, to show their support.

926 miles is the distance from their club to the other 20 football grounds in the Spartan South Midlands Premier division including London Colney FC, Colney Heath FC and Leverstock Green FC. They hope to raise £1,000 for our services.

Roman Motyczak, chairman at Harpenden Town FC, said: “As a football club we are part of the community and we want to give back in some way. It has been a tradition since I have been involved with the club that for the final game of the season we give the gate proceeds from our final home match to a charity and this season it would have been Rennie Grove. We would hope to get the 926 miles done between us by the end of May.”

He added: “To other Sports clubs, why not follow our example and get all of your members who are out there completing other exercise activities to club together and complete all of those activities for worthwhile purpose?

Claire Redrup, Community & Events Fundraising Manager at Rennie Grove said: “We are so grateful to Roman and everyone at Harpenden Town FC who is taking on this epic challenge for Rennie Grove. Our hospice at home nurses are working tirelessly in west Herts and Bucks to care for patients and their families. We need to raise £20,000 per day in order to keep our vital services available to local patients and their families so any support from the community is hugely appreciated.”

She continued: “If your sports team feels inspired by Harpenden Town FC and would like to take on a challenge too, our fundraising team will be on hand to support you. Please email community@renniegrove.org or call 01442 890222.”

Over 100 photographs from a 2016/17 SSML Division One fixture between Baldock Town and Harpenden Town, at Roker Park on Monday 2 January 2017, resulting in a surprising and impressive 4-0 win for the visitors. Baldock Town had been on an impressive run of league results prior to that and finished the Division One campaign in third place, one point behind Harpenden Town who were promoted back to the top flight after eleven seasons away along with Champions Biggleswade FC:

Delightful YouTube footage of Rothamsted Park and nice commentary from anorak Chris White on his visit there from Saturday 24 August 2019 when Harpenden Town beat Baldock Town 2-1:
