Romford & GP v Enfield


Locals hit the road

London Div 2NE: Chelmsford v Romford & GP

PARK coach Mark Collins expects a tough encounter at Chelmer Park and no shortage of banter from home officials enjoying a pre-Christmas drink.

But belief in his side is unwavering, following a clinical 26-0 success over Enfield at Crow Lane last weekend.

Park remained on the heels of top two Rochford and Braintree with another bonus-point haul and will try to keep that momentum going into the new year.

London Div 3NE: Basildon v Upminster

ONLY a last-gasp converted try denied Upminster a memorable win at Wanstead last weekend.

They earned a draw after a battling performance, though, and climbed out of the bottom two in a congested table.

Basildon are going well at the right end of the standings and ran out 29-0 winners when these two sides met at Hall Lane in the second week of the season, but Upminster will travel with renewed confidence.

London Div 3NE: Wanstead v Campion

FROZEN out for the past two weeks, Campion will hope to see some action in east London.

Condemned to the bottom of the table by three successive defeats, there is no panic yet as the Cottons Park outfit lie only four points off sixth place.

That was the margin of defeat when the two sides met earlier in the season, but in full flow, Campion can be a match for any team.

Essex Div 1: Dagenham v Old Cooperians

COOPERS have also been frustrated by the recent cold snap, which accounted for games against Maldon and Billericay.

But they will be out for revenge as they look to maintain their promotion push at May & Baker, after suffering a 30-24 home defeat against Dagenham in week two.
