March Town United - The last stand!

Saturday 8 March 2014, March Town United 0 Stowmarket Town 7, Eastern Counties Division One, GER Sports Ground

I had to visit March as the famous old grandstand will not see another season of football. The club are not doing well and need to improve the facilities at the ground and though the stand is memorable it is not best suited for watching a game.

The cost of removing the stand and legal wrangles have seen the better players leave March, and they were unrecognisable from the team I saw play so well at Halstead at the start of the season.

It is a pity that the club were still not linked with the Great Eastern Railways - and with the thriving GER Social Club next door. Only a few weeks left to sit in this famous stand, take the opportunity if you can.
