And so it came to the last fixture of the season. Sadly, we were already confirmed to leave Div2 East and return to our ever so slightly more local league, but we still wanted to put on a show and finish as strong as we could.

After hearing the sad news on Saturday that just over fifty percent of the first XI have voted to leave the club and head off to university next year, the old remainers appealed to the young intellectuals for a departing gift of three points that would secure a second referendum on the now seemingly-inevitable Berkxit from division 2S.

Finally after two postponements we headed off up the A1, to the sand covered velcro pitch at Sandy, so aptly named.

A good battling performance this week against a decent Welwyn side who applied a lot of early pressure having won the toss and started with the ball.

Its crunch time in the never ending season and there were a few crunches in the game against top of the league Shefford & Sandy 2's played on a spring like Sunday afternoon.They are a strong and physical side but we held our own and had much of the play in the opening period.
