On Saturday the 10th March,  Berko 1st XI began the journey to Letchworth, 3 weeks after they drew 2-2 to the same side on their home turf; thirsty for the victory.

Once again, the Men’s 5s received great support from across the club this weekend. We were 7 in number after selection, by Friday that was up to 10 with some doubler-upperers from the 4s (thanks to Joel and Iwan), 2 injury returning 3s then offered assistance (thanks Ed & Rik), and...

Things did not look particularly promising at half time. Hertford led 2-0, Berkhamsted shots on goal were scuffed and Hertford were breaking freely through the midfield.

We started to prepare for the game with vigour and intent, pumped up with energy and enthusiasm, keen to make amends for the previous away loss at Saffron Walden.

Its rather charming to turn up at the ground and introduce the team to each other, for our twentieth game of the season. Handshakes and pleasantries all round.
