This week like the curates egg good in parts.
The 1st XI had a disappointing 2-0 loss to Kew they are having a bad run at present the team needs some strengthening which is difficult to achieve in the current circumstances.
The Res XI are very strong and if they can keep their temperaments under control they have a great chance of gaining promotion. This week they continued the high scoring since we purchased the new goals on the first team pitch with an 8-0 victory over HSBC, their much maligned striker Charncey Dash claiming 6 of them.
The 3rd XI had a tough cup tie against local rival and also unbeaten Old Minchendenians and lost narrowly 5-4, unfortunately this week we had several unavailables which did not help our cause. A word at this juncture for that much maligned person the referee in this game, we had a fellow Old Stationer, the veteran Geoff Blackmore who controlled the game very well and nipped in the bud an incident which with a less experienced official may have led to a plethora of yellow and red cards. I am also pleased to say he is still able to hold his own in the bar.
The inter club match between the 4's and 5's was won by the table topping 4's, it would be good to see this team more involved with the club as a whole.
The 6th XI had an excellent win away against Old Parks with one player Bobby Bartlett scoring 5 goals, note to higher teams.
There was been much activity last week off the field, our new Acting Chairman Barry Ayers getting involved in areas that may have been neglected in the recent past, you can read his posting by going to the News Section Notice Board on our web site.
