AFC Rushden & Diamonds v Potton United

ChromaSport & Trophies United Counties League Division One

Dog and Duck Stadium, London Road, Wellingborough NN8 2DP

AFC Rushden & Diamonds will host Potton United on Tuesday evening, in a game that was originally due to take place in January during the spell of poor weather. This will be the first league meeting between the two sides, with Potton the last UCL side the Diamonds have yet to face (although they still have to face local neighbours Whitworths in a league game). After a promising start to the season, winning four of their first five league games, Potton are currently on a poor run of form, meaning they have dropped into the bottom two in the UCL League Table. Prior to Saturday’s game they were still looking for their first league win since the end of September 2012, but they did draw with Bourne Town and lose by a single goal to high-flying Eynesbury Rovers during February. At the weekend they lost to league leaders Northampton Sileby Rangers by a single late goal.

As this is a league game, season tickets are valid. For those paying on the gate normal prices apply, so entry to this game is at the standard admission prices of Adults £5, Concessions £2.50, Under 16 Members FREE, Under 8 FREE (Concessions (with ID) are Over 60′s and Students. 8-15 year old non-members will also be admitted at the concession rate.
