OA Saints head into this Sunday’s league encounter with Beckenham full of confidence after beating the RAF in a friendly.

In a game that traditionally goes in OA’s favour, the RAF came out fighting and despite never leading, ran the Saints close, just coming up short in a 36-26 scoreline.

OA Saints currently top the Championship South East 2 table having won all five of their opening games.

OAs will have a tough task, though, against fourth-placed Beckenham. Saints have won two of the last four meetings but neither of them was by more than four points.

Sunday’s game kicks off at 2.15pm at Woollams Playing Fields.
