Sean & I proceeded to buy tickets for the match for 10 pounds which is roughly 15 US dollars. We were given a small ticket stub that just said adult on it. There was no detailed information on it not even the date. We proceeded to walk inside. It was a damp rainy night. The grounds had wooden stands on both sides of the pitch that were covered so we didn't have to worry about getting wet. We wound up sitting by midfield on the far side. They also had an area called the Canary Club which is a bar that's open to all supporters during the match. The team was referred to as the Canaries when they were founded back in 1928.
As for the match we saw, Leamington FC scored twice to take a 2-0 lead in the first half. In the second half, Hitchin FC came roaring back as they managed to tied the score at two. They wound up getting a hard fought draw in front of a crowd of 311 people. After the match, Sean & I walked back to the train station. We got lucky as we were able to catch an express train that left just after ten. We got back to Kings Cross around 10:45PM. We said our goodbyes as we headed back to get some sleep.
Stay tuned for a special post that will go into detail about another adventurous & exciting day I had that Tuesday.
Thank you for reading & following along.
