Our guide to the weekend’s fixtures


London Division 1N

Romford & Gidea Park v Beaconsfield

Park will hope to pick up some points against basement boys Beaconsfield at Crow Lane this weekend.

They suffered a fourth successive away defeat last time out, going down 52-3 at Letchworth in what coach Mark Collins described as their ‘most disappointing’ display of the season.

But they have already beaten Basildon and Chingford on their own turf and only lost to second-placed Eton Manor after a last-gasp drop goal so should go into this match with plenty of confidence.

London Division 3NE

Cantabrigian v Upminster

Table-topping Upminster took a break from league competition to compete in the Senior Vase last weekend.

But they were put out by Hitchin, after a 17-5 defeat, and will be looking to get back to business in Cambridgeshire.

Cantabs ran out 34-10 winners at Old Brentwoods, though, and will surely be no pushovers.

Essex Division 1

Old Cooperians v Campion

Local pride is at stake at St Mary’s Lane this weekend.

And something has to give as both sides had won their opening three matches of the season, before last weekend’s cup break.

Coopers have been involved in some high-scoring affairs to date, but Campion boast a miserly defence and have conceded an average of just over nine points per game.
