AFC Rushden & Diamonds v Luton Town XI
Friday 3rd August 2012 – 7:30pm
Dog and Duck Stadium, London Road, Wellingborough NN8 2DP
As the pre-season period approaches its conclusion, AFC Rushden & Diamonds play their final home friendly against a Luton Town XI as they prepare for their historic first league game against Thrapston Town on 18th August.
Entry to this game is at the reduced prices of Adults £3, Concessions £1.50, Under 16 Members FREE, Under 8 FREE (Concessions (with ID) are Over 60′s and Students). Note that season ticket cards are not valid for this game and that the kick-off time is at 7:30pm.
Luton Town will need little introduction to AFC Rushden & Diamonds fans who also followed R&DFC, as the two clubs met on a regular basis at both League and Conference level. Ex-R&DFC Assistant Manager Paul Driver has moved to Kenilworth Road to take charge of the Under-18 side there, and he has worked with several of the AFC R&D side, as well as ex-R&DFC Youth Team members such as Jake Woolley and Jerry Nash who are now with the Hatters. The exact make-up of the side the Hatters are likely to field is not yet known.
The Dog and Duck
During the summer both WTFC and AFC R&D volunteers have been working at the Dog and Duck on various projects. There is always a need for additional volunteers to help with ongoing maintenance and matchday work, so if you are able to volunteer please contact the club – details here.
