Football is back (we hope)!

After the recent bad weather, the Comrades are itching to get playing football again, and Berkhamsted’s First Team have the chance to go back to the top of the Molten Spartan South Midlands League Division Two, if they can get at least a point at Totternhoe on Saturday (kick off 2pm).

When the sides met back in August, Berkhamsted came out 2-1 on top, and another win would complete their first league double of the season.

The rest of the top five are not playing in the league, as they are still trying to catch up on County Cup ties that have been continually put off by snow and frozen pitches.

1 Aston Clinton 11 2 1 32 35
2 Berkhamsted 11 1 2 39 34
3 Wodson Park 11 1 5 12 34
4 Padbury United 11 0 3 24 33
5 Pitstone & Ivinghoe 10 0 4 13 30

One benefit of the long layoff is that Mick Vipond should have a full squad from which to pick.

Both Berkhamsted sides put in some serious training on the 3G surface at the Sports Centre on Saturday, with slow thawing pitches putting paid to both Berkhamsted’s scheduled home game with Pitstone & Ivinghoe and the away reserve match at Vauxhall Road against Hemel Hempstead Town Reserves. #

The Herts Intermediate Cup derby between Hemel and Berko has been rearranged for Wednesday 20 January, with a kick off of 7.45pm.

Berkhamsted’s reserves will be at home on Saturday 23 (ko 3pm), but it is anybody’s guess who they will be playing! If they win at Hemel on Wednesday, it will be the quarter final of the Herts Intermediate Cup at home to Letchworth Garden City Eagles. If Berko lose at Hemel on Wednesday, they will be at home to Totternhoe in a reserve league match. If the weather prevents the cup tie being played at Hemel on Wednesday, it will be switched to Broadwater and become a Berkhamsted home cup tie on Saturday 23rd.
