We’re into the final straight now as there are just six league games left this season, and only one more at home after the Comets clash.
The promotion situation is still up for grabs with the top five all in contention, including ourselves in second and Comets in fourth.
Sunday will see our fifth meeting with the Comets in total and it’s honours even with two wins to each side so far.
Away from home we lost 4-2 and 2-1 in previous seasons, but then earlier this season we bounced back with a 2-0 win.
In our one and only home meeting so far, in October 2019, the Tons won 5-2. We haven’t hosted them in the two and a half years since due to Covid-affected seasons.
The Comets away form this season has been superb, with 4 wins, 1 draw and 1 defeat so far.
Like CCFC they’ve also reached the quarter-finals of the John Greenacre Memorial Trophy.
Dieda Fennema already has 10 goals this season with McKenna Doyle and Michelle Keating not far behind.
Clapton CFC vs Comets is on Sunday, March 13 2022 at 2pm at the Stray Dog, Wadham Lodge, Kitchener Road, Walthamstow.
Advanced tickets are not needed, you can just turn up. Entry as usual is free but with donations welcome, with a suggested £3 for waged adults.
We will have a mini programme available at the entrance, pick one up for free, donations welcome.
Don’t forget the hygiene bank collection for our charity partners Magpie Project. You can donate toothbrushes, toothpaste, shower gel, sanitary towels and deodorant at the entrance.
Please note: Buses from Walthamstow Central are VERY slow at the moment. Please allow extra time to make the journey – we want as many Tons as possible through the gates before kickoff!
- 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 12-25 minutes.
- There’s also car parking space available at the ground but it may be better to park on a street nearby.
An important note
Matchday Centres have asked us to ensure that there is no more use of pyro, flares, smoke etc on their property.
This has caused damage to their facilities and complaints from staff, officials and neighbours.
They have also banned glass bottles after a serious incident during a game not involving Clapton.
We have a good working relationship with MDC, who have played an invaluable role in helping us establish the club.
They have said that a failure to observe these rules will lead to sanctions that would be damaging for the club, including but not limited to requiring us to play behind closed doors.
We ask all our fans to respect MDC’s requests in solidarity with our teams and everyone who works hard to run the club.
