The return of Britain's Olympians last weekend after their enforced rest made little or no impact on the League fixtures. As one club manager put it: "They were off the pace - lacking match fitness."

The return of Britain's Olympians last weekend after their enforced rest made little or no impact on the League fixtures. As one club manager put it: "They were off the pace - lacking match fitness."

The clubs will hope that they make a greater impact this weekend, in particular the women's defending champions, Hightown, who are currently just one place off the bottom of the Premier division and make the long trip to Canterbury today.

They have dispensed with the coach Mark Bourhill, and so Linda Carr, the former England captain, will look to their three Olympians to hit top form. Back home again tomorrow, they face Deeside Ramblers in the Cup.

Cannock, the defending men's champions, aim to return to winning form at home to Bournville tomorrow after losing at Old Loughtonians last week, while the current League leaders, Reading, have a tricky home fixture against Loughborough Students, who put five past Bournville last weekend.

Canterbury will be without the striker Danny Laslett for the visit of Teddington. He has emigrated to Canada.
