SAL: 4th place leaves team reliant on home matches

Woodford finished fourth and last in the 3rd SAL match of the season at Stevenage on Saturday 15 June, dropping the team dangerously close to the division 2 relegation zone. Hosts Stevenage and North Herts won the fixture ahead of Bexley and Cambridge & Coleridge. Unlike the first two matches, where WGELs women have clearly outscored the other teams, this match saw the smallest womens contingent in years, just 9 athletes, with more gaps than events contested.
