Any one for a 9am push back in Hitchin against Blueharts 7s? Of course, we say, if they’ve got any youngsters they’ll probably still be wiping the sleep from their eyes if they’re even up yet!

The men’s 1s were looking to continue their winning ways with an away match against Luton 1s on Saturday. Confidence was high following a promising win against Broxbourne last week and with a familiar looking line up apart from our goalkeeper Hunt who looked like Borat between the sticks.

A bright afternoon saw a hopeful 2nd XI rolling up to their match at the Tring International Stadium against Bishops Stortford with nothing to lose under their stand-in captain, Jason who roused them with talk of a stand-out performance in the absence of usual captain Jamie.

The sky was blue at the beginniing of the game, the air crisp and clear, Hunt’s eyes were there somewhere, his head was heavy...the odd glider flew over the pitch, a quiet piece of beauty, “a good day for it” someone remarked.

The Men's 2s rolled up to their game against Enfield and Winchmore Hill hopeful after winning their first point the week before.
