Another fine Spring Day at the club with only two of our five pitches used. On pitch 2 to help finances and provide playing time an inter club "friendly" was arranged between the 5th & 6th XIs.
This was as competitive a game as any cup tie with the 5s coming out winners 3-2 and showed that the club has a lot of young players who would do well at a higher level. The problem of persuading players to change their team during the season is common throughout the league and the first club to manage it will soon reap the benefits. We have to rely on the integrity of the skippers to persuade their players that they can have a good game whichever team they play for and all buy into the fact that strength from the top downwards will in the long term be to the advantage of the club as a whole.
The stamp pitch featured our 7th XI who have been on a good run recently playing Winchmore Hill 9s, a very good performance resulted in a 6-2 victory putting them at the top of their league, they have some extra fixtures to play, lets hope their legs last.
This week we are hosting the AFA Vets cup final as well as the 1st XI playing at home against Broomfield and several other games so if you have not been down recently. This Saturday would be a good start.
