Letchworth Saracens v. Ampthill/Bedford

Given the diabolical weather which covered most of Britain on Saturday - and the heavy rain that arrived on Monday - we can consider ourselves very fortunate to have had blue skies and only a moderate breeze for Letchworth Saracens first home games of the season.

Being a two club cluster team, Letchworth Saracens have two home grounds but with the opposition coming from north of the two clubs (Ampthill and Bedford Blues), the honour of hosting this game fell to Letchworth. Doubtless this was also appreciated by the Norfolk Nomads girls who had quite a long enough journey as it was.

With 5 clubs represented, we were able to hold games at close to full strength - 13 a side for the U15s and 15 a side for the U18s - which is quite a rarity these days and was very much appreciated. The U15s game was keenly contested throughout but Letchworth Saracens took an early lead and put on a good team performance to maintain the advantage throughout to end up winners by 42-10.

The situation with the U18s match was very similar - a strongly contested game in which Letchworth Saracens took an early lead and continued to add to it throughout. However, this was no 'pushover' - the relatively young and inexperienced Bedford Blues/Ampthill team put up a strong defence and were still striving to stop the Letchworth Saracens attacks, and get themselves on the scoreboard, right to the final whistle. It was their misfortune that on Sunday, Letchworth Saracens managed to put on the kind of all round team performance that had eluded them earlier in the season and consequently ran in 9 tries to make the final score 55-0 to the home side.
