Visitors, FC Clacton had a fine band of enthusiastic supporters with them. When chatting before the match, I was informed that they were not expecting their side to get anything from this match. Despite what the team sheet posted by the main stand might have indicated, FC Clacton only had one substitute. The home side was also having a great start to their season. The Clacton fans would have been further dejected when their substitute was forced into action early in the match. However, those fears proved unnecessary as they visitors came from behind in the first half and actually led briefly in the second period before settling for a well-earned draw. A similar duration for the journey home meant that this Pieman was able to reflect on a fine trip to a wonderfully friendly club.
