The Old Spotted Dog Ground Trust (OSDGT) will manage the Old Spotted Dog Ground on Upton Lane in Forest Gate. Its directors have devolved responsibilities for the day to day running of the ground, under protocols and governance procedures agreed by the democratic structures of the society.

The OSDGT was set up in December 2014 and is a wholly-owned subsidiary company (09349773) of Clapton Football Club Limited, a member-led community benefit society based in Forest Gate in east London which fields football teams as “Clapton Community FC”.
