Thurrock's ground is virtually situated on the inside lane of the M25 for it is that close. I thought Ship Lane looked fantastic & very well maintained despite the club deciding to fold at the end of the season. Had a lovely chat with the Chairman/Owner who shared his real reasons as to why he has decided to call it a day after 33 years. Its a big shame because its a lovely set up.
Despite no goals it was a very enjoyable game between two fully committed teams. It never let up as both teams went full power for the victory.
Leiston even managed to miss a late penalty but i feel Thurrock definitely deserved something from the game for effort alone.
Lovely big main stand painted in the club's colours. Plenty of covered standing and a ground with a very spacious feel about it.
Full marks to the group of Thurrock fans who made plenty of noise throughout. But sadly their visits to Ship Lane are numbered as their Ship will soon be sailing. Unless they are thrown a 'life-jacket' and a buyer comes in to buy the club ,the club will fold forever. A big shame for it is a lovely club.
