Clapton: Club Profile
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 Ground Information
Clapton Travel Information – Distance: 44 miles
We’re opting for the most direct route down to Clapton here, which will see you take the A1(M) southbound and M25 clockwise. But you’ll only be on the M25 for one junction, coming off at Junction 24 for the A111. And when you’re at the roundabout, take the fourth exit for Stagg Hill (A111).
Once you get to the A406, negotiate the somewhat complex junction and join the North Circular towards Walthamstow. After 4.4 miles, come off at the A104 exit for Woodfood and Leytonstone, taking the third option at the roundabout for Woodford New Road (A104).
Bear left at the next roundabout for the A114 Whipps Cross Road down as far as the junction with the A12. Here, you take the fourth exit onto the A106 Leytonstone High Road, before turning left onto Bush Road.
At the next crossroads, turn right onto the A114 Blake Hall Road and continue along for 1.6 miles.
It doesn’t seem like there is a car park at the ground, so you’ll have to see if you can find some space on the surrounding streets – residents’ only schemes pending.
