Wingate and Finchley F.C.

Date: Tuesday 6th February 2018
Score: Wingate and Finchley F.C. 1-1 Tooting and Mitcham United F.C.
Competition: Bostik League Premier Division
After going to Brackley Town F.C. on Saturday, it was time go and visit another new ground and I was really keen to visit a new ground in mid-week before our trip to Dover Athletic on Saturday and there was only one local fixture on Tuesday night and that was Wingate and Finchley vs Tooting and Mitcham United and this game seemed very appealing seeing as I have wanted to go to Wingate and Finchley for the past few seasons but the only downside was they were playing against Tooting and Mitcham.
I don't really have a hatred towards Tooting and Mitcham seeing as they are my most local club but I have recently seen them play when me and my dad visited Dorking Wanderers on Tuesday night just gone. I didn't really fancy watching Tooting and Mitcham again but they did show a good fight to stay in the league, so with them playing Wingate and Finchley who are 6th in the league, it might be a really good game. There are a few opportunities to tick off Wingate and Finchley this season but seeing as this was the only local game, we decided to just tick it off on the coming Tuesday night.
The week before the game was mainly spent at college like usual and I even managed to visit two new grounds as I visited Dorking Wanderers and you can read about that trip here and I also visited Brackley Town on Saturday and you can read about that trip here. Sunday was a more chilled day for me and my dad as we didn't wake up until 9am, watched some of MOTD and then headed to the pub for a drink, darts and a late lunch and that was about all we did on Sunday.
Monday was spent at home mainly chilling out doing some coursework that we started on Friday and I also did some little bits of pieces around the house and I also managed to buy some songs for my iPhone as I wanted some more songs for my trip to New York seeing as I cant use YouTube or any internet connected music apps on the plane. Tuesday morning arrived and I woke up at 7:30am and then had some breakfast and then did a little bit more coursework and then just before I left for college at 12:10pm, I quickly looked into the history of Wingate and Finchley FC.
Wingate and Finchley F.C. were founded in 1991 via the merger of Wingate FC and Finchley FC. The club currently play in the Bostik League Premier Division (England's 7th Tier) and they currently play their home games at the Maurice Rebak Stadium which has a capacity of 1,500 and there are around 400 seats. The club started out in the South Midlands League and in 1995, they joined the Isthmian League Division Three and the club had a couple of promotions and relegations in the 1990's. In 2004, they joined the Southern League East League and in 2006, they re-joined the Isthmian League Division One North and then in 2011, they were promoted to the Isthmian League Premier (now Bostik League Premier).
