This year we had members travelling from as far as Nova Scotia and Australia.
The major disappointment of the day was the very late cancellation of the 1st team game at 12.30 on the day of the match, the pitches looked great, thanks to Brent and David and we ended up with only one pitch out of our five being used, with our 3rd xi dropping out of the league this season the SAL management has some major problems to sort out.
A word on our 1st XI, I have been critical of their behaviour in the past, but this season as well as a 100% League record their disciplinary record has improved dramatically, last week their opponents had one sending off and five cautions with us receiving none.
A disciplined team always wins out, lets keep this going even when things aren't working out on the pitch.
The Res XIs poor form continued with a 5-0 defeat to Bank of England, goalkeeper problems again I understand. This is a rebuilding job for Steve Morgan and he needs support and help from us all.
The 4th XI strengthened their position at the head of the table with a 3-0 win against AP 5s.
The 6th XI likewise with a 4-1 win away to Winchmore Hills 8th XI.
With no 1st XI game I am sure for the first time ever the 7th XI starred on the main pitch, a close match resulted in a 5-4 victory over APs 9th XI, a few knackered veteran players and referee!!!
