The ground was looking magnificent on a very warm Spring afternoon pity a few more of our old players could not have stirred themselves from their armchairs to come and support the club where they have had so much enjoyment they could even have bought me a drink.
The 1st XI played as well as they are capable of against a team who have not lost in the league for almost two seasons and who showed the team work of a team that play together every week. We are lacking that plus three or four class players that could combine with the promising younger players who are already in the side this would allow some our great servants to play an important role in adding experience to the 2's and 3's.
We really need to have a better recruitment system, to build a good team we require players who are really committed and enjoy playing for the CLUB and all it stands for as well as turning out every week.
Enough of my rant, the Res XI had an important win to relegation rivals and for the first time this season are out of the bottom two a bit of optimism there. The 3rd XI continued their run of good form and are in a close battle for promotion. The 4th XI are almost sure of promotion, a couple more wins will clinch it and this week scored 8 goals in an easy win. The 5th XI also scored 8 against Broomfield which moves them away from the relegation places. The 6th XI lost 5-4 and the 7th XI won the Presidents jug this week with a fighting 5-4 win against higher opposition.
I am still waiting for our first unbeaten week lets hope we can pull it off this week COYN.
