Hounslow - v - Richmond January 1984

First published in News by

The splendid run of success of Richmond Lacrosse Club came to an abrupt end at the end of January 1984 when they went down to Hounslow, leaders of the London Premier League. Hounslow always seemed to have the edge and led 1-0 at half time, despite being reduced to ten men, one of their defenders being temporarily suspended. The visitors, niggled by some of the umpiring, were even sharper in the second half and took a 2-0 lead before Richmond were able to pull one back. It came when Ian Simpkins managed to scramble the ball across the line. A beautifully struck short corner by Hounslow closed the door on any Richmond revival and gave the league leaders a fine win on a sticky pitch. Richmond 1, Hounslow 3.
