The only game to survive was Simla's visit to Langton Green. The Green were probably wishing it hadn't.
The pitch had a bit of surface water but the referee decided it could be played.
Langton Green started with 11 players but their 'stand in' keeper soon came off after dislocating or fracturing a finger. Then they lost another player to a head injury. All the play was in the Langton Green half of the pitch and Simla finished the first half 4 - 0 up.
After a quick turn around, the second half continued much the same
with Simla scoring another 12 goals. This could have been a bigger
scoreline, but for the valiant effort of the Langton's third choice
keeper who pulled off some excellent saves. Simla officials would like
to compliment Langton Green on their attitude, never giving up till the
Scorers for Simla: Bayley Colbran 4, Joe Fuller 3, David Blundell 2 (including 1 penalty), Ian Parsons 2, Matt Coleman 1, Clayton Cooper 1, John Sinclair 1 and 2 own goals from Langton Green. Joe Cullip was the clean sheet Keeper
Paddock Wood still have three games to play and should they win two of them, they have a fair chance to qualify. Two of those games are however against Artois United and Simla. Those games are yet to be scheduled. Other results in Groups 2 and 3 will of course have a say.
