St Neots Town Saints go into United Counties League Division battle tomorrow morning (Sunday).
Lydia Bedford takes charge of the Under 21 side in a competitive match for the first time when they travel to Thrapston Town (10.45am).
The early start is down to the fact the match forms part of the Rutland Groundhop – a series of matches over three days laid on to tempt non-league football fans to that area.
St Neots Town completed their pre-season schedule with a high-scoring success at National League South side Concord Rangers today.
They will go into the new Southern League Premier Division campaign full of confidence after a fine 5-1 triumph.
