Our Men’s 1st team have advanced to semi-final stage of this season’s Referee’s Cup after a 12-9 win over Premier Division rivals Sutton & Cheam last Wednesday at Woodside.
It was good to see a strong squad of 13 players turning out on a such a sunny day. Rumours that Edi was down the pub watching the Croatia-Denmark match were false, apparently. He was down at Croydon with the Ladies, so Cameron Baker stepped in to coach the squad; although he refused to change his name to Bakervic for the occasion. With such a strong team he opted to rotate two groups of six outfield players.
A trip to Kent on a Tuesday evening to play 2017 Winners & current London League Premier Div leaders Bexley is always a tough ask and even an M25 closure could not stop a determined young Watford team from venturing south of the river to take on a strong Bexley side. Only the inclusion of Danny Davis, Alun Dorrington and Paul Skerm ensured we fielded a team with an average age north of 20 years.
The final round of matches in this season’s London League Div One were held at QE Boys School on Sunday and Watford finished the first phase of competition in third place.
Our third away game of this season’s Premier League and a final trip to Morden Pool as the pool will be replaced with a new 25m pool in the autumn, dimly lit, six lanes wide & shallow at one end and with only one ref to see into the gloom it would be an interesting evening against a team that knew how to play to the conditions.
The London Borough of Barnet won Silver at this season’s London Youth Games played at Crystal Palace Sports Centre after entering a team with Five (Barnet borough based) Watford Players in their side.
Father’s Day afternoon at Whitgift will see our Young Ladies team in Div Two at Whitgift School.
Father’s Day afternoon at QE will see our U15’s in Div One action for their second round of games. Our Boys have two matches and will need to win both to finish second and then face the winners of the first round of matches in the play-off games in September to make their father’s Happy on their special Day…
The second of three U13′s Div One tournaments and the afternoon’s action started with Ealing not turning up and only Watford and Chelmsford were there on time.
This Sunday our U13’s & U15’s are back in London League action at two different venues.
