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.

Ryan Hawkins converted an early penalty before Tom Meechan doubled their lead with an overhead kick.

Peter Clark laid on a third goal for Remy Gordon before the players reversed roles on a fourth goal after the hosts had hit a consolation. Gordon was then the provider as Meechan completed the scoring.
