3s skipper Kapoor is club's last ever-present

8 Feb 2018

Congratulations to 3rd XI skipper Nick Kapoor who this week became the last OHAFC player to maintain an ever-present status for one of the three Saturday teams this season. The corpulent corporal has led his troops through a magnificent campaign so far, with the 3s sitting pretty at the top of Division Five South and into the second round of the David Woolcott Trophy.

'Kapo' has played in every single one of his side's twelve fixtures, starting eleven of them and coming off the bench once. His status as the last ever-present comes about due to several absences from the 1s and 3s over the past few weeks: both Yunus Sert & Alex Breeden had played every game for the 1st XI until both coincidentally missed the games against Berkhamsted & Brentwoods; meanwhile Harry Woolley was still going strong in the 2nd XI - that was until illness ruled him out of last week's trip to face Charterhouse 2s.

Availability for the 3s has been excellent this season with a strong core of players available for the majority of the games. Skipper Kapoor has played all twelve games, another four players have missed just one game each and no less than nine players have played at least three-quarters of the fixtures.

Last season no player came close to representing the 3s in every fixture, with the most games amassed by Kapoor, Ilogu and Ned Callander, who all played in ten of the side's fifteen games.

The 3s have three League games remaining and face the visit of Forest 3s to the Hill next weekend in the second round of the David Woolcott Trophy.

Congratulations to Kapo on his commitment to the cause so far!
