Letchworth IV Vs Offley & Stopsley - 12th May

Match Cancelled due to rain.

Steve Bexfield’s team made the trek down the A1 to Letchworth to picturesque Fairfield Hall for their second game of the season.

Despite the absence of Colin Keeley with an ankle injury and Space Cadet Nathan Brodie undergoing special laser training at a secret location, hopes were high that Offley had a strong enough team to record their second victory of the season in the Saracens League and maintain their push for a second consecutive promotion.

Unfortunately a combination of inclement weather (the morning’s rain had left some residual moisture in the air and underfoot although any “puddles” that had accrued on the square were more likely to have stemmed from someone pissing on the wicket rather than any natural precipitation) and a dogged reluctance to begin the match on the part of the home captain meant that the game never got under way.

The decision did not go down well with a number of the Offley players. Skipper Bexfield looked far from impressed with the verdict and the blackest cloud in the vicinity could be seen hovering a couple of feet above the captain’s head. Vice-captain Darren Lunney wondered loudly and at length on the possibility of subjecting a complaint and Matthew Freeman lamented the lost chance of “some sporting activity.”

Offley were forced to settle for a share of the spoils and they finished the day in joint second place with four other teams on 40 points, trailing leaders Old Elizabethan IIs by 20 points.
