Romford & Gidea Park score a try against Old Haberdashers


Our guide to the weekend’s rugby fixtures


London Division 1N

Romford & GP v Rochford

Park will go in search of a fourth successive win as they return to Crow Lane this weekend.

A late try from Steve Barfoot clinched a 21-20 win at mid-table rivals Old Haberdashers last weekend, following on from successes over Ruislip and Luton.

And coach Mark Collins wants his men to maintain that winning momentum before next weekend’s break.

He said: “We have got to stay focused. Rochford have not had the best of results, but they’re a good ball-playing side.

“They will not come to our place and lay down. We will need to up our game to get a result.”

London Division 3NE

Upminster v Wanstead

Upminster put up a brave fight in defeat at table-topping Beccles last weekend.

A 31-24 loss was their fourth in a row in the league, but they at least returned to Hall Lane with a bonus point.

They welcome second-placed Wanstead this weekend, following their 17-5 win over South Woodham Ferrers last time out.

Essex Division 1

Campion v Clacton

Table-topping Campion return to action at Cottons Park after a three-week break.

They boast a 100 per cent record in the league, after six straight wins, and were handed a place in the next round of the cup when Writtle cried off on November 10.

Upper Clapton v Old Cooperians

Coopers will look to keep pace with their local rivals as they also return to league play.

Their only defeat this term came at the hands of Campion last month, but they booked a trip to Hackney in the Junior Vase with a win at Newmarket a fortnight ago.
