Borough "confident" of obtaining LOWEST ground grading - EXCLUSIVE

Tuesday 18th July 2006
Greenwich Borough are confident their Harrow Meadow ground will pass their ground grading, which took place on Monday morning, writes Stephen McCartney.



A club statement said: “The two Kent League inspectors were happy with the efforts that were made and were thoroughly surprised by the organisation of the club in general.”

On the pitch the Kent League side got their pre-season campaign underway with a comfortable 1-1 draw at newly promoted British Energy Kent County Premier League outfit Holmesdale last Saturday.

Borough conceded a penalty late in the first half after an infringement from John Samuel in the area, but striker Lee Anderson levelled the scoring during the second half.

Some of the improvements made at Harrow Meadow, costing around £4,000, include improved floodlighting and revamped dressing rooms but the club are confident they can obtain the lowest ground grading.

Carshalton Athletic’s reserves are the visitors to Harrow Meadow, Eltham Green Road on Saturday, 3pm, and the match is being played on the second pitch as the main pitch is still undergoing necessary work.
