vs Mildenhall (home, 17th July)
A glorious weekend of weather beckoned, all our Covid-isolation cases were returning and we even had some former players back in the team for this week or next, now they knew we were an unstoppable force (except for last week’s deviation). What could possibly be a fly in this perfect ointment ?
PINGDEMIC was the answer, meaning that Mildenhall were hit, as an entire club, with a mass of isolation requests and even 1 or 2 positive tests. Whilst we wish them all the best for speedy recoveries, putting our game on was not going to be practical so a cancellation was called on the Friday. No points awarded and a further justification of the average points system this season. Special thanks to Meady for putting out the scoreboard and some of the flags anyway – WhatsApp 1 vs Nokia 3310 0.
Onwards to next Saturday 24th and the home fixture against Elveden, followed by the traditional salmonella-fest BBQ, if the weather holds.
