Today the Mens 3s took on the top of the league side Luton under windy conditions. Fortunately, no storm in sight as predicted by BBC weather forecasters.

Another 4.30pm start for the 5s, just at the time storm Brian was going to be at its peak. Undeterred, a slightly depleted squad gathered in the gloom in Hertford, we welcomed back Nick Cave this week and big thanks to Colin Izzard for stepping in to keep in what was an unusually short week for keepers (I’m sure we’ll have 3 again next week!). Dave Gardener decided that he was too poorly to play, but brought along James to take his place (which looked like a fair swap as he was considerably younger & fitter!).

A game in which Berko 2s were overpowered in the end by a young, fit and well drilled Luton 1st team. The first half was Berko soaking up a lot of pressure and working hard in defence.

We turned up on a hot and muggy afternoon in Tring, reeling from a poor performance last week.  With 13 men, we felt positive that we could get a result today.

This was a scrappy game against a side we had struggled to beat previously.
