Ligers return to action after the Easter break, entertaining third placed Camberley Town Rockets in the last league match of the season. The teams met in the Cup back in the autumn when Ligers defeated Rockets 6-5 in a nail-biting contest. Rockets were already playing in Div D, and Ligers joined them in the New Year. Since then, Rockets have had several very good wins and a couple of 4-3 defeats but it was a surprising defeat to Barton Rovers that put paid to their title hopes although second place is still up for grabs. Rockets have played one more game than Ligers this year but have six points more.
Ligers had a nightmare result last time out, exacerbated by early morning call-offs which meant just 9 started and only 8 finished! Probably best forgotten as the defeat left Ligers out of the running for a top half finish, notwithstanding that three fixtures will have been lost.
Matt is still recovering from a broken hand and both Daniel and Kevin have back injuries. The match day squad currently stands at 13 and Joe and George PM are likely to be sharing the keeper’s gloves. With only the cup final remaining after this game, Ligers will be hoping to rebuild confidence as well as that winning feeling. George Lewis will be officiating.
