During yesterday's match at St Albans City, a red smoke flare was thrown onto the pitch and we are led to believe it came from amongst the Hampton supporters.

Before the season began, the National League made it clear that this kind of action would not be tolerated. A notice to this effect was circulated to all clubs and a copy displayed at the Beveree.

The club cannot and will not condone such behaviour.

It is likely this incident will be reported by the referee and the club may face disciplinary action.

We urge anyone who knows the identity of the culprit to contact the club.

The club are saddened to announce the passing of Alan Duddy on Friday morning.

Alan was connected with the club for 70 years, first as a player for the club in the South West Middlesex League and then on occasion in the Surrey Senior League.

After his playing days came to an end, he held various positions on the club committee, including the club's treasurer and was currently vice president of the club.

The club would like to pass on its condolences to all his family at this time.

The boat race, which is a 4 ½ mile test on the river Thames, has already taken place. The Grand National takes place today (14th April) and is a trial of stamina for both rider and horse, as they tackle 30 fences over a 4 mile course. Then on Sunday 22nd April the London Marathon will see nearly 40,000 runners step up to the start line to negotiate 26.2 miles around the streets of the capital.

All these and many more events like them are a stern examination of an individual’s will and determination to complete the course. A high level of endurance is required, just to be ready to take part. Months and, in some cases, years of preparation and training is needed.

During this period of preparation there are bound to be times of doubt, but when these occur it’s a...
