So on a horrible Saturday afternoon the 3’s faced Ricky 1’s. I do this report at work so may be a bit jumbled due to having to keep stopping. The match started with Ricky making quick attacks down the wings and getting the ball in to the middle of the D for attackers to latch on to which resulted in three saves in the first 8 minutes.

It was an overcast and dreary day but we approached our destination in Luton (nothing defamatory here!) with ever-present hope in our hearts.
Expecting a feisty game, it soon became clear that we were in one and up against an experienced Vauxhall 1st team who, to start with, out did our largely youthful side for aggression, directness and volume levels.

Any one for a 9am push back in Hitchin against Blueharts 7s? Of course, we say, if they’ve got any youngsters they’ll probably still be wiping the sleep from their eyes if they’re even up yet!

What a grey day, as Larry Grayson almost used to say, and as that day turned into dusk, the Men’s 5s turned out at Halton for the 4:30 slot, we know our place!

The men’s 1s were looking to continue their winning ways with an away match against Luton 1s on Saturday. Confidence was high following a promising win against Broxbourne last week and with a familiar looking line up apart from our goalkeeper Hunt who looked like Borat between the sticks.
