Viking prepare for a trip into the unknown

Following their impressive 18-6 home win over Brentwood last weekend North Walsham will be seeking to rewrite the stats and secure their first away win of the season when they make their first ever visit to Borehamwood-based Old Haberdashers.

As the two clubs have never met before little is known about them except that 'Old Habs' were formed in 1923 to cater for former pupils of Haberdashers Aske School but ARE now, as are most Old Boys' clubs, open to all.

Their season has been none too successful in terms of results and they currently sit one place above bottom side Woodford.

A glance at their record however would indicate that they are no pushover as despite their record of one win, at Diss, and one draw, at Romford and Gidea Park, they have picked up three losing bonus points.

Such a situation could leave him with the odd dilemma however as Shane van Vuuren is available following his enforced break which will probably guarantee at least a seat on the bench.

With Chris Godwin and Aki Downing unavailable either Callum Cashman and Matt Oakes could be in the reckoning for a return after injury.
