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

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

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.
