This was a fantastic local derby and a great example of the so-called game of two halves. Saints came into the game on a losing streak of four games whereas Sports had enjoyed five wins in the last 6 matches. Saints were boosted by the return of Sam Sherratt after injury and the first full league start of the season for James Watts. 

  

There was a pitch inspection at Binfield this morning at 9.30 and the Saints game is OFF, waterlogged pitch.

Manager Chris Hurley was able to welcome Sam Hartley back into the squad after he passed a pre match fitness test, but lost James Hammond to injury and Ryan Knight due to suspension. As a result, the squad had a very youthful look to it with a number of the U18’s stepping into the fray. It was a brave and battling performance by the young Saints who held Cleeve at bay for large parts of the game, although ultimately the experience and strength of one of the top teams in this division won through.
