Stonewall vs Clapton CFC preview: East London derby for men’s first team

The rearranged Clapton CFC men’s first team game at Stonewall FC takes place on Tuesday, May 2.

The East London derby is at Stonewall’s home ground, the London Marathon Stadium in Stratford, and is all-ticket due to the capacity of 300. 

All tickets have sold out but keep an eye on Stonewall’s Eventbrite page for any returns.

CCFC are in first place and need a point to seal the title from this game or two final games against OIR.

Promotion has been secured on the pitch already but still depends on the Old Spotted Dog Ground passing the ground grading requirements too. We expect to find out that in mid May.

Meanwhile in-form Stonewall FC are in sixth place in the Middlesex County Football League Premier Division and are unbeaten in five games, three of which were wins.

Previous meetings have nearly always been goal-fests – an average of four goals a match – and over 3,000 people have been through the turnstiles.

Bring the camaraderie, noise and passion that has historically made this one of the fixtures of the year.
