With a number of regular players unavailable or away, the Lions visited Hackney’s new pub venue on the last Thursday in April, and found themselves outgraded on a few of the lower boards. A battle royal ensued, with Hackney eventually coming out 5-3 winners after a very hard-fought match.
Many thanks to everyone who made it out to Stoke Newington, and special mention to Dan Bisby for making the round trip from St Albans for the match.
