Perhaps it was the unseasonable sun and relative warmth. Perhaps it was the cheering sight of a statue commemorating the first pineapple grown in the British Isles. Perhaps, for two members of our squad, it was the cheers of “come on Barnet” emanating from the host club that made them feel at home, though in the wrong sport. More likely though, it was the presence of our largest Met League-day squad since Claybury in October that meant optimism was in the air as the senior men’s team warmed up for the final fixture of the series at Trent Park on Saturday. Two very welcome second-claimers and two very welcome U20s swelling our ranks of home-grown and longstanding senior team members who delivered 12-in-102 and 18 runners in total to give Woodford 3rd place on the day and 4th overall in the league. And 4th is a strong improvement on last season's 7th!
