All our meetings to date with Clapton came in Division 2 North of the Vauxhall Opel/Football League between 1985 and 1991. And our last three no doubt left the Tons in no doubt who had the upper hand between us; Boro’ winning 5-0 at home in January 1990 and then going on to do even more damage the next season. As we surged to the Division Two North title in 1990-1, scores of 7-1 (home) and 5-0 (away) showed who was boss.
Clapton: The Facts
Terence McMillan Stadium,
Newham Leisure Centre, 281 Prince Regent Lane, Plaistow, Newham, E13 8SD
Now playing in Newham, there’s a shorter route in distance that you can take. But you’ll probably find that a slightly longer route will be quicker in journey time.
Go south on the A1(M) – or head across to Ware on the A602 and south on the A10. No matter which option you prefer, you’ll need to join the M25 clockwise. Next, take the M11 south. When it ends, you’ll be joining the A406. To make sure you’re heading the correct way, follow the signs for the A12 and A13.
Stay on the A406 until you reach the A13, which involves a massive roundabout and the Beckton Triangle retail park. Take the third exit and go south on the A13 towards the Isle of Dogs and Canary Wharf. After 1.6 miles, you reach an exit for the A112. Come off the A13 here and turn right onto Tollgate Lane. It’s then right again onto the A112.
Go across the A13 and, shortly after, a right turn takes you into the leisure centre.
There’s a limited amount of parking available at the leisure centre. If this is full, you might find a spot to park on local streets. Be aware of any residents’ only schemes, though.

The DLR seems to be the easiest way to get to the ground by public transport. And it’s an easy enough walk too. Exit the station onto the A112; heading almost straight across so that you pass The Royal Docks Academy on your right. Just keep walking up this road to eventually reach the A13 and – just on the other side of it – the ground.
