Vikings to bow out in Kent
After 24 rugby seasons North Walsham bow out of the National Leagues on Saturday, and next season will be playing in London One North.
Their final game at the higher level sees the Vikings make their first-ever trip to Gravesend. Walsham's only previous forays into Kent have been to play Maidstone between 1990-94.
Gravesend have had a more than satisfactory first season at this level and have spent most of the campaign hovering around mid-table, currently sitting in sixth spot.
Having been in the lead with ten minutes to go last Saturday, the Vikings know they let that one slip away, but will go down to Gravesend determined to go one better.
Nick Greenhall should have Lee Sandberg and Leon Davies back, but Jamie Burroughs will almost certainly take a long rest and Jack Hoyles (shoulder) is also doubtful. But he has cover for them in Adam Couzens and possibly Ewan Wilson.

If Davies returns unscathed from the Inter-Services game he will move back into the second row with Tom Coller dropping back to replace Chris Godwin, who will probably have work duties.
