For the second week running Berkhamsted 5ths faced a recently relegated team in Southgate Adelaide 2nds who turned out to be a useful team.

We had a lovely day trip, although slightly out the comfort zone as it was well within the M25

The sun was blazing, a picturesque woodland surrounding and a pumped up M3s ready to replicate the fine form from the previous week.

After another hectic  transfer week, due to players providing umpiring cover for other teams , we settled with a team of 13 on Friday night with high hopes of the extra players allowing for a much needed rest for the older generation.

The Men’s 2s were coming off a good win from the first league match of the season and so were positive going into the match.  Herford 1s had just missed out on promotion last year and were expected to be a tough challenge for the newly promoted 2s.
