Having watched Gilman take Mayo off to the JR just after half time, the skipper suspected that he was watching the points disappear again, and he was right....

With the returning Will Cairns, and Tom Gilman, the 6's had the side to beat a strong West Hampstead, yet the first half was one where the team struggled for fluidity and rythym.

Karl HAck decided that he wanted to be challenged - his way to do this was to give the ball away on the D, then make a despairing diving save (when Josh realised that the previous night's drinking had converted into the mother of all hangovers, and that he really couldn't get back in time) so Karl decided to repeat the feat again - this time without the free giveaway.......

 So 0-0 at half time was a good achievement, yet two simple goals conceded early in the second half, alongside Mayo deciding that he really wanted to see how the JR compared to the Eastcote version - wasn't the best of restarts! From then on the 6's had most of the play, scored a goal and played some good hockey.

Man of the match  Venables Junior showed us why he normally played 4's, but also whose son he was....Will CAirns played remarkably well considering he hadn't played in two years, and Ashley and Rodders earned mentions in dispatches. 

After the heady heights of leading the men's section in league positions, the 6's are now entering their normal habitat of lowly middle, although the slightly worrying part is normally at this stage we are on the way up rather than down.......

I am sure next weeks curry will help bond the team, the Skipper is considering a more flamboyant style of play - say, more Klopp than Mourinho for the second half of the season....
