In the early push back at Linford Christie, the Mens 4s took on top of the league Richmond with a new-ish looking squad, full of youthful exuberance (one of the PHC boys is so young, he has never heard of a floppy disk). A good start saw PHC go a goal up through Tom Poole, but then disaster struck, and three quick chances for Richmond led to them taking a 3-1 half-time lead. The second half started as the first ended, with Richmond going 5-1 up, before Chiswick finally showed the fight we have to claw it back to 5-3. However, as Chiswick looked for a fourth and, hopefully, fifth goal, we were hit on the break and ended up losing the game 6-3.
Not the greatest result possible, but the boys played very well, and the scoreline didn't reflect that at all. Man of the Match was Tom Poole for his double, with DY picking up Dick of the Day for his obscene lateness.
L - 6-3
