Gale Street club conceded their London Senior Vase match at Fakenham last weekend

Barking return to London Three Essex action on Saturday with a short trip to Ilford Wanderers.

With the league taking a break last Saturday, the Gale Street outfit had been due to visit Fakenham in the first round of the London Senior Vase.

However, Barking unfortunately had to concede the cup tie prior to making the trip to Norfolk, resulting in their exit from the cup.

It means the Gale Street club will have been without a game for two weeks prior to facing Ilford, but director of rugby Andrew Moreland will hope the break stands his team in good stead for their trip to Wanderers.

Barking will be chasing a second straight league win on Saturday, having beaten Kings Cross Steelers 20-12 in their previous outing.

The Gale Street club will also want this weekend’s match to yield their first away win of the season, having already lost on their trips to Old Cooperians and Epping Upper Clapton so far this term.
