Youth Development League U17/U20 – Wormwood Scrubs – Sun 27 May 2018

The next match  takes place on Sunday 27th May at Linford Christie Stadium, Artillery Lane, London W12 0HU.

This is our second match of the season and we need a good turnout to get back on course. We came fourth out of five clubs in our first match; we simply had too many gaps. This match is much nearer, so you will not need to be away all day. We appreciate the exam season has started, but this fixture is on the first Sunday of a week-long half term. Relieve that exam stress, take a short break from revision and come down to the Scrubs to enjoy some athletics.

You can access the timetable here: YDL UAG Timetables 2018. NB: Our timetable is on the second page, entitled “Upper Age Group Non Premier Timetable”.

We will not be taking a coach as the stadium is only a few miles away from Ealing and well served by public transport.


Come into London from Ealing on the A40, Western Avenue. Turn left at Savoy Circus onto Old Oak Common Lane. Take the second road on the right (Ducane Road). Go along Ducane road for ½ mile, under the rail bridge and past the prison on the left. Immediately after the prison and before Hammersmith Hospital turn left into Artillery Road. Plenty of free parking in car park.

Public Transport:

East Acton tube (Central Line) is on Erconwald Street. Walk up street to the Scrubs (300yds), walk across the Scrubs behind the prison to Linford Christie Stadium (a further 400yds). Bus 95 goes from Greenford and from outside Tescos in Perivale, to Old Oak Common Lane, walk down Ducane Road to the prison (see above).
