Some will already know that Woking FC play a couple of hundred yards away from Westfield but postcodes are probably the only similarity. Whilst Kingfield boasts some of the better facilities in non-league football, Westfield's Woking Park ground is very basic. An old clubhouse resembling a cricket pavilion was the only structure apart from the dug outs (I do not count potting sheds as being intrinsic to the ground).
Woking FC were hosting Stevenage Borough (1-2) at the same time and it was strange hearing the crowd noise from that match. We even thought we heard Phil Bryant singing! We were treated to a decent game resulting in a fair 2-2 scoreline. A 7.30 kick off (rare these days) was a pleasant change. An easy stroll from Woking station which I would estimate to be 12 minutes away at the most.
