Down on the farm

Wednesday 3 February 2016, Corinthian 0 Erith & Belvedere 1, Southern Counties East Football League, Challenge Cup - Quarter Final - Gay Dawn Farm

Gay Dawn Farm is well worth a visit, the place started as one man show, built to enable a father to allow his sons play football in a true sporting way- amateur status - so we have the name Corinthian.

A number of years later, and the club lives on, playing in a large sporting complex- golf club, astro pitches, club house and indoor sports hall.

The main pitch itself has a semi detached house as the changing rooms but with seats in front of it, the angle of the building makes it look like a modern version of Craven Cottage.

A small stand also behind the goal and on the side we have ingenious use of 4 bus shelters as cover for the spectators - best part? The pitch, very few clubs at this level will have a pitch this good to use for their weekly game.
