Crash! Wanstead's fliers hit pleasant nightmare

These are great times at Wanstead & Snaresbrook CC in London, but their  weekend fixtures have turned into a "logistical nightmare" according to the club's chairman.

Wanstead's extraordinary season has led to a log-jam of knockout matches, which will force them to field two sides on the same day, August 20,  in the Conference Cup and the Essex League Cup. Surely even this resourceful club cannot win two big matches in one day. But don't bet on it...
