Sutton United (Knights Community Stadium)

The ground more popularly known as Gander Green Lane witnessed some incredible games last season during the south London side’s run to the FA Cup fifth round.

Paul Doswell’s men have got off to a good start this campaign and are currently fifth in the National League. They have the possibility of going top of the division at home to AFC Fylde on Saturday.

Corinthian-Casuals (St. George’s Field)

St. George’s Field is located in Tolworth and the club ply their trade in the Isthmian League South Division, the eighth tier of English Football.

Unusually for a non-league side, they have enjoyed a number of tours to Brazil, playing against Corinthians each time. The first of these came in 1988/89, with World Cup winner Socrates turning out for the South American outfit. On Saturday they face AFC Dunstable in the FA Trophy at home.

Richmond Women (Richmond Athletic Ground)

Richmond Women have played at the Athletic Ground since their formation in 1986. They have been the dominant force in the English game in recent years, with five titles in the past eight campaigns.

The new Tyrrells Premier 15s competition is an exciting new dawn for women’s rugby and the team have made an encouraging start to the season under David Mobbs-Smith, with two wins from three matches. They play bottom side Worcester Valkyries tomorrow.

Rosslyn Park (The Rock)

With a capacity of 2,000, The Rock has a 3G pitch that is of comparable quality to those found at Saracens and Newcastle Falcons.

This is the team’s eighth successive year in National League 1, but it has so far not been a good one for the Roehampton outfit, who have picked up just one win from their first five league games. They aim to get their season on track tomorrow against Loughborough Students.

Wimbledon Hockey Club (Church Road)

Just one part of a sports club based at Church Road also comprising cricket, tennis and squash, Wimbledon Hockey Club make use of an outdoor grass pitch, as well as several artificial surfaces which they share with King’s College School.

This weekend, the men’s second team will look to get their second win of the campaign on the board when they face Spencer Hockey Club.
