On Saturday the 2s braved a trip up to the wet and windy Potters Bar. We started the match of with lots of energy, despite having only the bare minimum and having to wait 10 mins for an unimpressively, unpunctual umpire.

With Larry Eaton retiring from the game, as promised, following his first ever goal against Royston in week one, Dom Peachy was drafted in to provide a solid foundation to the right flank. New boy Miles slotted into midfield like pro.

The “new look” fourth team faced the second league game of the season with another “new look” fourth team. Last week we travelled with 16, this week it was to be just the trusty 11.

The 2s had their second game of the season on Saturday, against Bluehearts. We largely had the same body of men as the previous week, but welcomed back Nick and Will.

‘Too hot for hockey’ was the cry before the game, and with only 12 players to share the 70 minutes of exertion, we were going to be putting in a shift in the heat.
