The object of this web site is to keep the East London drinker up-to-date with the ale scene since the publication of the guide in 1991. Updates appear in London Drinker but this can prove time consuming. If you still want a copy of the guide,or more importantly want to update the guide then email Keith.  In the beginning.... Initially the data was stored on an Amstrad PCW8256 using Datastar to store the data. An extra disc drive and more memory were purchased but updating became more time intensive. The current data for the guide is stored in a Open Office database. Thank you.... This web site would not be possible without the surveying work carried out by the branch members of East London CAMRA back in 1991. The photos were also supplied by the budding David Bailey's of the branch. My thanks to them all. This site was launched in April 2000.

Always follow your local team. There are too many armchair supporters. A supporter is someone who gives their club money, everyone else is a fan. My blog started in 2010 and the 2019 blog is here.  The history of the club 1965- 1974 are here.  This forms part of my Leyton Orient Diary which can be found here
My cousin Raymond has been researching the family tree and here it is. Also in txt format or even PDF though there is 18 pages of it. If you know off any missing dates don't hesitate to let me know. This is the latest version. This site was last updated 21 April 2019.

Darts  Darts has been my sport. My grandfather played so that may be where my love of it comes from. I started with the East London & City CAMRA team know as the Spratts. Originally they played in the Bricklayers Arms EC2 before finding a home in the Fish & Ring in E1 which has sadly been converted to flats. For five years I played for British Coal where I managed to be team champion for three years but I was by no means their best player. I returned to play for the Spratts until they disbanded around 2000. By this time I was playing twice a week. Wednesday nights I turned out for the Albany playing in the Wenlock Arms N1. If you want to know how to set up a dartboard then this is the place to look. Throwing a dart is more difficult! This site  tells you how it should  be done. Practice makes perfect. Who was it that said "the more I practice the luckier I become". The way I do it? Have ten throws at the board, add up each throw and jot down. After ten throws add them all up dropping the last of the three figures to give you your average. Do it 12 times then work out your average and try to improve every time. Finally as Bobby George more than once said "Scores for show, double for dough" It does not matter how many tons you hit if you cannot finish. If you can finish in three darts at a double you are going to win a lot of matches. My double practice comes from the darts501.com site (above). Starting with 170 throw a maximum of 15 darts finishing on a double. Best is three my best is four. If none of this makes sense then download this spreadsheet  which is designed for six throws at 19 x ten and six at twenties x ten. I've added a version that you can use as you throw! Darts go all over the place? Use this site to see what triple you should be aiming for. If you have a computer near your dartboard and playing with a friend you can use this spreadsheet  that I found on the web and gives you a three dart out. If you want to follow our progress try the Trafalgar League site.   The Albany team lost team member Joe Belka who was found dead at his home on 23rd December 2010 at the age of 48. Joe was a lovely man and we always chatted football, he was a season ticket holder at Reading FC. He was also our secretary and statistics man for many years. A pleasure to have known him.
