AFC Rushden & Diamonds host Wellingborough Vicarage Farm in their first ever competitive cup tie. Although this is a home game for AFC R&D, the match will be played at the Dog & Duck, home of Wellingborough Town FC. This allows us to play the game on a Sunday, hopefully allowing those supporters who are unable to attend Thursday night games the opportunity to watch the team play.

The Boys U18s Cup is open to all youth teams affiliated to the Northants FA, from dedicated youth clubs to the youth teams of the county’s senior professional clubs. Our first opponents, Vicarage Farm, play in the Northampton & District Youth Alliance and are currently sixth in the eight team league. They had started well winning two of their opening three games, but last week’s heavy defeat to league leaders Rugby Town has seen them slip down the table. There are several faces in the Vicarage Farm squad that may be familiar to AFC R&D supporters, as no less than four of their players turned out for the Diamonds during our pre-season friendlies.

Rushden will be playing in their white and blue home strip, replicas of which are still available for supporters to purchase, details HERE.

Due to the limited space at the Dog & Duck, the car park will be reserved for players and officials only. Supporters driving to the game are advised to park in the retail park opposite the ground where there is ample FREE parking. Please do NOT park in the pub/hotel car park as these spaces are reserved for their customers. The bar at the ground will be open to supporters before, during and after the game, and the snack bar will also be selling the usual football ground food.
