Saturday: Firsts host Drayton, CFC at Bingham and U18 Cup Semi

9 months ago By Neil McGowan

Saturday sees the First team home to Market Drayton Town, Community go to Bingham Town (both 3.0), and a cup semi-final at Under 18s (10.30).

We are running a promotion for the Drayton game and the following week, see elsewhere on the website for details.

Looking forward to the game Martin Carruthers commented:
“Market Drayton have had a few managerial changes this season and a new chairman so it has been unsettling times for them. They have recruited some new players over the last couple of months so they should start to gel and improve their form.

“They will be energetic and have plenty of movement and we will need to match that to ensure we get something from the game. They did have a mid week game v Telford so that would have helped their preparations for this weekend.

“The recent bad weather has had no impact on our preparation and even though we had a friendly on Saturday we put the lads through their paces on Monday night with a high intensity session.

“It will be the same this Thursday and we will ensure our players understand the importance of the next three league games. We have to work even harder now to ensure we maintain our lead at the top and achieve the goal of promotion.”

This will be the first time the teams have met this season, the earlier fixture at Drayton was postponed due to an unfit pitch.

Saturday’s game was scheduled to take place at Market Drayton, with the return here in three weeks’ time, but the fixtures were reversed to take advantage of the Greenwich Avenue 3G pitch during the current unpredictable weather.

Community will also be placed to get back into action after a two week break when they travel to Bingham Town, with whom they are level on points, goal difference keeping Community one place ahead.
Ground address: Moorbridge Road East, Bingham, Nottingham NG13 8GG.

Under 18 Gold play their County cup semi-final on Saturday morning against West Bridgford.
Ground address: Regatta Way, Gamston, Nottingham NG2 5AT.
All support for the team would be greatly appreciated.
