Eastbourne Borough 0-1 Wycombe Wanderers
Garry Wilson Testimonial

The pre season friendly I was looking forward to the most at the start of the 2009/10 season was our trip to Eastbourne Borough, then punching above their weight in the Blue Square Premier. Actually it was more than a friendly, in fact it was a testimonial for their long serving manager Garry Wilson and his assistant Nick Greenwood. The game itself was a dull 1-0 win for Wycombe, Chris Zebroski scoring after 85 minutes, witnessed by 700 people.

On the way down I visited grounds at Oakwood, Crawley Down, East Grinstead, Crowborough Athletic, Wealden, Eastbourne Town and Eastbourne United association. They were all fairly decent, probably my favourite was Crowborough Athletic, a tidy ground in a nice setting. We got to Eastbourne at around 6.15 and I went in the bar for a couple of pints and something to eat before seeing the game.

LANGNEY SPORTS CLUB is a tidy little non league ground that has seen a lot of redevelopment over the years. Sadly, I have managed to mislay most of the pictures I took, but what I do have, plus a few from elsewhere are below.
