Richmond B v Harrow A 24-01-19

Unfortunately, there’s not much to report.

Harrow contacted us at 22:00 the previous evening, conceding the match because they couldn’t raise a full team. I see they defaulted their away match against Kingston back in October for the same reason, which does raise some concerns. While they can field strong teams for home matches, their players seem reluctant to travel.

Disappointing for our players, but what can you do? It’s not easy at this time of year: there have been several defaulted and semi-defaulted matches in the London League in recent days.

At least we score a much needed point, along with a boost to our goal difference.
