RAG ground capacity 4500, Esher 3500. Unless Saracens cause a crowd, not needed.
Mond/LS derby about 16-1800 if I recall correctly.

Esher can hold up to 4500, we did when we played Northampton.

After the fallout from their Premiership demise, there was eager anticipation for the first Scottish v Richmond league match in Herts-Middlesex League One (level 9 at the time). The crowd was estimated at circa 3,500 to 4,000. Scottish won that first encounter. However, both were promoted at the end of that first season back in the league structure. Richmond had ditched Middlesex as their CB due to their perceived lack of support following their demise and chose Surrey as their CB. They wouldn’t meet again until both were promoted back to London 1 some years later (now called SE Premier). Crowds then again were very similar with the RFU having to appoint senior ‘teams of three’ to cope with the magnitude of the games. Long may it continue .......

Esher's ground is actually in Walton-on-Thames. The boundary with Hersham is between the station and the club.

And the address is Molesey Road! Esher were founded at the Wheatsheaf Public House on Esher Green, hence the name!

Yes but my post was in response to the suggestion that Esher should move from Hersham where they aren't as the ground is in Walton-on-Thames!

It is 2 minutes from Hersham Station to the ground pre-match but 15 minutes back post-match!

Yes it is. With the boundary between Hersham and Walton-on-Thames crossed as you walk as indicated in my initial post.

How difficult is it for folks to grasp the fact that Esher Rugby Club's ground is in Walton-on-Thames?

Phone Elmbridge Borough Council to check if you like.

And the first time we played Wharfedale we had to accommodate two Yorkshiremen who had got confused and booked a hotel in Horsham! What a difference an E makes!

As I said a week ago when Nottingham had to sadly move from Ireland Avenue it took more than a year to find a site, we had serious discussions on 2 or 3 but for a number of reasons they weren't right , before we landed at Lady Bay so I would be surprised if we hear anything for a number of months
