Ampthill... this time let's finish it!

Its the game that at least one person has been waiting for. Yes its Ampthill, Fern's old club, so that adds a bit of spice.

Not that it needs it really as at U17 level we have a curious history. They visited us last year and we fought out a titantic 0-0 draw, the game ending early in the second half due to an Ampthill injury. A few months later in Wimbledon the Hertfordshire Sevens team (mainly Letchworth) played Bedfordshire (mainly Ampthill). Result? A 0-0 draw, the game ending early in the second half due to a Bedfordshire injury - actually a girl from Surrey who had been lent to them, but you get the drift.

Basically the two teams have played against each other for a total of at least 40 minutes so far, no-one's scored - indeed if I recall no-one's come close to scoring - but we've put two of their players in hospital.

In practice the shape of our teams have changed rather significantly. We now have a full backline, and Ampthill have lost several of their best players 'cause they are now too old. They have some promising youngsters coming in at the bottom though. So we can be reasonably confident that someone will score this time, lets aim to finish the game, but mainly its about winning it for Fern!
