We turned up on a hot and muggy afternoon in Tring, reeling from a poor performance last week.  With 13 men, we felt positive that we could get a result today.

A game in which Berko 2s were overpowered in the end by a young, fit and well drilled Luton 1st team. The first half was Berko soaking up a lot of pressure and working hard in defence.

On the back of our first victory, the 5s took on top of the table Southgate Tankards Y, scored 9 conceded 1 (as opposed to our scored 2 conceded a few more than that).
The 4:30 slot meant we had plenty of time to mow the lawn, go shopping, prepare for guests coming, before our game, so we were all warmed up & ready to go, but no, we lost Rhys Hanling after 5 minutes with a knee injury, this was an indication that it was going to be a tough afternoon.

This was a scrappy game against a side we had struggled to beat previously.

Seven days since our last match, but to me it felt like a week.
Flying high at second place in the league after three games doesn’t mean a thing, as the fixture list is a cruel mistress, where the best teams hide amongst the petticoats of future weeks.
