As I have said before there is no way a club with our history and facilities should be in the third division, we are competing against well organised clubs drawing their players from connected schools and universities and with strong youth sections giving them a steady flow of new talented players each season.
If we want to get back to the first division we have to take a close look at our recruitment policy and retention of new players at the beginning of the season. We have a great committee, they just need some more help from the rest of the club.
The Res XI had a much deserved and long awaited win 3-2 against local rivals Old Owens, probably too late to avoid relegation, but their good spirit in difficult circumstances have been an example to us all. Well done Eoin.
The 3rd XI not enjoying their travels to South London were defeated by 5-2.
The 4th XI had a good 4-2 victory at Alexandra Park, but will be too late to gain the top spot.
The 5th XI entered into the SAL Spring Cup due to a shortage of fixtures and were well beaten by Old Vaughanians Reserves in their first game 7-0. They have 3 more games to play in this competition.
