Old Loughtonians will be without the Great Britain defender Julian Halls for their home game this afternoon against Havant. Halls is spending the weekend in Guernsey on a coaching exercise. His place is likely to go to Bedford student Sean Robinson, writes Bill Colwill.

The Old Boys, one of several clubs badly affected by the World Cup preliminary in Cagliari, are unlikely to press their three Scottish internationals into service tomorrow, on their return from Italy, for the away game at Barford Tigers.

Guildford, however, have named their Welsh goalkeeper Kevin Priday and Richard Markham in their squad for the short trip to Surbiton. They also include Roly Ward - their new signing from Firebrands - whose father, Carl, is coach to the Italian national squad.
