ST NEOTS Town are going into their final season at Rowley Park.

The club will be moving to a new ground for the 2007/08 season, with facilities including artificial turf and a new clubhouse.

Player-manager Steve Kuhne is entering his second full season in charge. Kuhne is 40 next month but is showing no signs of fatigue and netted 47 times in all competitions last season.

He said: "We're looking forward to another good season. We've kept 15 or so lads from last year and added a few to the squad as well.

Kuhne is wary of the financial muscle of Wellingborough Town 2004, the team set up by big-money backers including snooker star Peter Ebdon, but insists his side are a force to be reckoned with.

He said: "Wellingborough have got a few former semi pros but it might take them a while to gel. There's normally a surprise package who pop up from somewhere as well.

"To be honest I'm very excited by the way things are going at this football club. With the new facilities from next season and the way we played against Boston United in pre-season it's a good time.

"I truly believe it won't be too long before this club is playing in a higher division and we fully welcome any spectators who want to come down to the ground and see what St Neots Town is all about."

Town warmed up for the new season with an impressive 5-1 victory against Higham Town on Saturday. Deverall, Ross Sommers, Nick Hurst and Kuhne bagged the goals.
