AFC Rushden & Diamonds will play their next game in the EVO-STIK South Premier Division Central when they travel to face St Ives Town on Saturday (KO 3pm).
The trip to St Ives is one of the shorter trips this season – around 32 miles from Hayden Road. You can find directions to Westwood Road, St Ives PE27 6DT here
. Step-by-Step directions are on the Ives website
as follows: From the A14 (Junction 26) continue along London Road (A1096). On entering the Town of St Ives (avoiding Town Centre), continue over the first roundabout and over the bypass (Harrison Way), continue over the next two roundabouts (still on Harrison Way). Turn left at the next two mini roundabouts onto the A1123 (Needingworth Road/St Audrey Lane). Turn left at the cross roads onto Ramsey Road where Westwood Road can be found on the right hand side (opposite the Fire Station). Continue to the bottom of the road where the turning for the football club can be found on the right hand side before the St Ivo Recreation Centre.
