Unfortunately despite our best efforts – including moving the game to the 3G pitch at Wadham Lodge – the game has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.
Storm Ciara (the tumultuous weather, not the fearless CCFC captain) made sure that no games in the GLWFL Division One (and indeed most other leagues) were played last weekend.
And now it’s finally time for the Tons to go up against the one and only team in Division One they are yet to meet. It’s finally time for a game against Brentford Women.
Brentford, or the Bees as they are also known, currently sit in 7th place in the league with 13 points. They have won 3 games, drawn 4 and lost 5.
The Bees play most of their home games at the ground of Bedfont Sports FC (right in between Hatton Cross and Heathrow Terminal 4 on the Piccadilly Line).
However, as their male equivalents, Brentford FC, are about to say goodbye to their historical home at Griffin Park, they have also played home games there.
In fact a decent crowd of over 200 turned up to see the Bees draw with Regents Park Rangers in October.
Brentford and CCFC followed a very similar path at the beginning of this season. The Bees have since pulled ahead of the Tons, but if the game against Clapham United is anything to go by, Brentford are in for a tough fight.
The game takes place on Sunday, February 16th at 2pm at the Wadham Lodge 3G Pitch, Kitchener Road, Walthamstow, E17 4JP.
Admission as always is free, but we welcome donations, with a suggested £3 for waged adults.
We have a range of merch on sale at all home games, including new scarves and tracksuit tops, and home and away shirts.
Our full-colour matchday programme will be on sale for £2. There’s a different cover artist each time.
Magpie Project collection
At each home game we collect food and toiletries for our charity partner, the Magpie Project. They support mums and young children who live in temporary and emergency accommodation in East London.
If you have any of these to spare, please bring them to our collection point at the entrance:
● Toothpaste ● Toothbrushes ● Shower gel ● Shampoo ● Soap ● Deodorant ● Bags of rice ● Bags of pasta ● Breakfast cereals ● Washing powder
Wadham Lodge is about 20 minutes walk from Walthamstow Central station. Turn onto Hoe Street and follow the road all the way along (past the junction with The Bell pub) until Chingford Lane. Continue past Sir George Monoux 6th Form College and take the first right onto Brookscroft Road then left onto Kitchener Road.
You can catch a bus along that route too. The 357, 34, 97, 215 will all take you to the top of Brookscroft Road from Walthamstow Central. It will take about 12 minutes.
There’s also plenty of car parking space available at the ground.
