Havant images - part 2

A good day out [would have been a great day with a different result] and my thanks also to 'Driver-Brian' for our safe delivery and return.

A new place to visit for me. Havant didn't inspire me greatly on arrival with its high-rise flats and less than delightful shopping centre. As we found our way in the middle of a large estate a big flat green area emerged with what at first we thought was a maximum security prison right in the middle of it. High metal and brick walls on all 4 sides with an adornment of barbed wire and CCTV cameras. After parking in the large car park and making our way tentatively towards the prison walls we found a large opening into the inside and were warmly greeted and invited in by the Warders.

Never judge a book by its cover....
Inside the ground [delighted to say it was the ground and not a prison] it was a picture to behold. Bathed in sunshine the pitch looked immaculate. A briiliant ground with good cover and terracing on all 4 sides and one side having a large seated grandstand area. It all looked bright, well cared for and maintained with refreshment facilities at both ends and a large and welcoming Westleigh Pub attached.

The staff & fans were all friendly and helpfull and we enjoyed the moment doing our best to make as much noise as possible.

So - a good day out - with just 2 very 'Grey' factors - the disappointing team performance and the even more disappointing grey away strip.

Never mind - we will bounce back - and at least I have got the memories and experience of another new place and ground on our journey through the world of non-league football.
