And the lights went out!

Wednesday 28 September 2016, AFC Croydon Athletic 2 Beckenham Town 0 - Southern Counties East League, Mayfield Stadium (Keith Tuckey Stadium)

A trip to South London, and a strange drive down a number of narrow lanes- then you reach a great little ground. Friendly welcome from a club sitting on top of the table.

An early goal made me think it would be a great night of football, but the visitors failed to buckle and it ended up a scrappy game - then the problem!  The floodlights failed after 68 minutes, but after a break of 20 minutes the club officials , sorted out the problem.

A second goal gave Croydon the win, their 8th league win on the trot as they stay on top of the table.
