The Holsworthy FC File

My planned match for the weekend fell foul of the weather, St Helens Town v Silsden in the North West Counties League Premier Division was called off mid Saturday morning due to a waterlogged pitch.

Due to business commitments it was always going to be difficult to get a Plan B match in so it was a blank weekend for the Tea Hut site.

However, last week I found myself down in Devon and despite not getting the chance of a live match I had the opportunity of getting access to the charismatic market town ground of Holsworthy FC who play in the South West Peninsula League Division 1 West at the Upcott Field Stadium. I slung the Match Shed through the car park entrance and quickly snapped a few photo's of the ground and supporting facilities. Looks a nice homely little club.

The SWP League is one of the primary jewels in the Non League crown, any opportunity to sample it should be grabbed with both hands.

Here's a selection of the snaps:
