The Cold End enjoyed visiting Clapton FC at The Old Spotted Dog Ground back in October and has now been made aware of a new website and group named 'The Friends of Clapton FC' who aim to help keep the historic club alive and help secure it's future.
Many non-league clubs and grounds in the East London area have been lost over the past few decades with Woodford Town, Leyton, Leytonstone and Walthamstow Avenue sadly gone. As such, as The Friends of Clapton FC website states, The Old Spotted Dog is one of the last traditional bastions of football in the East London.
The Friends of Clapton FC also have a facebook page which you can see here
The Old Spotted Dog ground has been the home of Clapton FC since 1888 and is only a short distance away from the Olympic Park and Stadium. Hopefully, The Friends of Clapton FC can help the club move forward in the Essex Senior League.
