Holmer kicked off their season on the Playing Fields of Eton. Well, not exactly where the Battle of Waterloo was supposedly won. But in a playing field in Eton Village, next to the College Laundry! Early goals from Dean Allen and Phil Clark gave The Greens an early advantage. This was halved on 25 minutes when the offside-trap backfired. The remainder of the open game gave the 20 or so players at Chris Allen's disposal a tough time in the searing heat. Regardless of the result, both Holmer and their opponents Windsor FC will have been pleased to get some actual game time in after a couple of weeks of stiff training.
