It's in our hands
It's that time again when Richard "Chims" Williams works out all the permutations that will allow the Erks to continue on in the competition. This year is, tragically, no exception, so here is Chims' analysis.

"The South table currently looks like this:
Erks 3-2, Lambeth 3-2, Met Police 2-3, Richmond 2-3."

"So if we beat Richmond on Sunday we win the group. If we don't and the Police beat Lambeth we'd still probably win the group on head to heads (definitely if we lose to Richmond by less than 10). If we lose & Lambeth win next week, assuming they turn up, they would go through."

If everything goes to plan this Sunday against Richmond, Erks will be featuring in the finals weekend on April 16th / 17th in Peterborough (TBC).
