The two biggest clubs in Huntingdonshire clash tonight.

St Neots Town entertain St Ives Town in the opening round of the Southern League’s Red Insure Cup competition at the Premier Plus Stadium (7.45pm).

St Neots can be found languishing in the bottom half of the Premier Division while St Ives have roared into joint top spot in Division One (Central) after a super start to the season.

But Ives chief Ricky Marheineke reckons the all-Huntingdonshire affair tonight is a fixture neither team will be too worried about winning.

He said: “It is a good fixture in that it will enable both clubs to get minutes into certain players, but it is probably a game that neither team will really want to win.

“We will certainly be making a few changes and mixing things up a bit.”

Two other local teams are in action tonight.
