Coach McCarthy: "Picking the final 12 is not going to be easy"
B&D coaching staff were delighted with the LYG squad victory 49 - 48 against Havering on Tuesday 25th as it was the first victory for the borough Juniors in at least 2 years. With some important key players still missing from the game it was an excellent team effort as all 25 players contributed against very creditable opposition to earn a well deserved victory.
