HALSTEAD Templars return to action tomorrow after an enforced two-week break.

They entertain Ilford Wanderers, having missed out on the last couple of weekends because South Woodham Ferrers and East London were unable to put sides out.

As a result of the no shows, Templars were awarded 39-0 wins to boost their hopes of staying in the top two in Shepherd Neame Essex Merit Table division seven.
