Loughborough Students were the first opponents of the season for Ampthill and the return leg is one of equal anticipation. Ampthill need only a single point from this fixture to assure their place as winners of the National One league this year which would earn the club a promotion to the Championship league and the highest ever ranking in their history.
Conversely Loughborough site at the other end of the table after a difficult year in National League One. Traditionally Loughborough suffer from high player turnover and this has not helped their game this season, with a rally toward the end of the season Lougborough now tie with Esher for points at the bottom of the table: a bad game for Esher against Blackheath with a good result for Loughborough would see them out of the relegation zone at Esher’s expense.
With both teams fight at opposite ends of the table this should be a match of importance for both side with the expected harsh weather only serving as a perfect backdrop to the conflict expected on the field!
