The Seniors Section participated in 13 Home and 13 Away matches during 2022 from April until October with a win in 12 matches, a draw in 5 matches and losses in 9 matches.
We managed to field a full team of 16 or 12 players, as required, for all matches with a few reserves stepping up when required. All matches were played in a good friendly spirit and hospitality was offered and received at all venues.
Brickendon Grange hosted the Triangular Match in October between us, Knebworth, and Harpenden Common. This was the second year for this fixture and Harpenden Common claimed the honours.
This is the first report for the Seniors section for the Club website and covers the 2021 season. All senior events are open to any gentleman club member aged 55 and over.
The section currently plays matches against other clubs around Hertfordshire on a home and away basis as well as one annual triangular match against Knebworth and Harpenden Common. Matches against other clubs are usually 16 a-side although matches versus Saffron Walden, Hanbury Manor and the triangular match are 12 aside. During the past season (May to October) we played a total of 21 matches with 53 players participating,
The other matches were cancelled due to COVID restrictions early in the season. The season begins in April and finishes in October with the triangular match for the KBH trophy. We also annually play for the John Phillips Trophy and Simon Martin Trophy against Bush Hill Park and Essendon respectively.
In the 2021 interclub matches we won 7, drew 2, lost 10 with one match postponed due to weather conditions. We unfortunately came 3rd in the triangular match and will host the competition next year in October 2022.
In 2021 we had 110 senior members of the club play in matches and competitions arranged by the section.
