From the Dugout – Luke Garrard  

“Obviously they are doing ever so well in the Essex Senior Leagues, currently sitting in 10th place.

“They will be coming here seeing the pitch and seeing that they have an opportunity to progress in the Herts Senior Cup.

“I can imagine that it is going to be a tough affair and obviously we have got our own agenda in the competition.

“We obviously want to progress in the cup and we are currently the holders of it, having beaten Royston last year.

“It is a trophy that I have said to my squad, that I want on the mantel again, come the end of the season.”
