Leytonstone Ilford 1-0 Slough Town – 1988/89

October 2, 2009

A decent picture of the main stand at Green Pond Road on the front of a programme from the 1988/89 season (the last season football was played at the ground). Leytonstone Ilford had merged with Walthamstow Avenue in the close season (note the ‘Incorporating Walthamstow Avenue Football Club’ at the bottom).

Leytonstone Ilford won the game 1-0.

Coming soon we will be featuring video footage of what I believe was the last game at Green Pond Road –  Leytonstone Ilford v Farnborough Town on 6th May 1989. It includes a tour of the boardroom and dressing rooms before the game, full match action, and Leytonstone Ilford receiving the league trophy after the game.
