The 2018/19 BWPL season kicks-off tomorrow at Habs Boys School with the Men’s Div Five season starts with The Watford Saxons facing off against Chelmsford at noon.
The two teams have faced each other several times in recent seasons with Watford getting the better of the Essex side in the last London League encounter & in last season’s BWPL Div Five the Saxons edged out Chelmsford 11-7.
Watford’s Head coach Edi Brkovic will take a similar result if it means his second string get their campaign up and running on Saturday lunchtime.
The five other sides in the Division will follow on from the Saxons match on Saturday afternoon as Sheffield Dolphins face Bedford then Invicta Marlins face British Army. Chelmsford are then back in action in the last game of the day as they face Leeds.
On Sunday Morning the Saxons start the day against Bedford. The two teams are old foes as they have faced each other many times in the Herts League & more recently in last season’s Div Five when the Saxons got the better of Bedford side in a close fought game and narrowly won by one in a fifteen-goal spree.
The other four games on Sunday morning will see Invicta Marlins v Leeds, Sheffield Dolphins v Chelmsford and Bedford v British Army.
So if you want to cheer on the Saxons to victory, come along for that Noon Day show down…
The Saxon’s team for Saturday’s game is:
Chris Jones (GK), Alun Dorrington, Alex Norcliffe, Adam Nash, Craig Nicholls, George Sadler, Josh Silverbeck, Luke Rogers, Luke Sperry, Matt Irish, Matt Smith, Richard Hime, Steve Brassington.
