West London’s poor discipline puts Cross’s season in doubt
Promotion hopes hang in balance as teams have refused to play side for more than two months
discuss the situation this week and let member clubs know their decision in due course.
But for Gerrards Cross captain Greg Causer, it is not a situation which he wants to see remaining unresolved once all games have been played.
He said: “I don’t want to really comment on the situation with West London, but what we don’t want is promotion issues being settled off the pitch after the season has ended.”
With two teams going up, Wycombe 3rds are four points clear at the top but have played one more game than Harrow in second and the Cross in third, who are level on points.
Causer’s troops must win their remaining games, starting at Windsor this Saturday, and hope their rivals slip up, while waiting on the West London verdict.
He added: “We need someone else to slip up really, but if we don’t go up it will be due to our own unavailabilities in key games, not whatever happens with the West London fixture.”
Over in the Trysports Hockey League, Gerrards Cross Ladies went down 5-3 at champions Wallingford Ladies seconds, but remain third.
With just one game remaining, at home to Reading Ladies 3rds this Saturday, the Cross can secure a top three place in they better the result of Newbury & Thatcham Ladies 2nds.
