Sunday 12th February 2012
All frozen off yesterday but plenty to look forward to next weekend.
Preview for Saturday 18th February 2012.
For Caldecote, its a third attempt at Harvey Close to stage their outstanding Befordshire FA Senior Trophy Semi-final tie with Molten Spartan South Midlands League Ampthill Town for which a final tie against 61FC Luton or Crawley Green awaits the winners.
Whilst Premier Division supported by Sportsform action this weekend comes in the shape of five games, for Shefford Town and Campton that means home action at Rectory Road against local rivals Arlesey Town Reserves.The hosts looking to retain their season’s unbeaten home ways which would take them to the summit of the league table against a Blues side that come in search of their third win on the bounce.
Over at Miller Road, Bedford Hatters will be meeting Blunham for the third time this season and having already beaten them twice on their own patch, a third win looks very much on the cards to keep them on the fringe of the championship race.
At Renhold Playing Fields, hosts Renhold United now on a nine game unbeaten league run should take that to double figures when visited by bottom of the table Woburn who have won just the once on the road all season. Whilst second from bottom of the table Dunton are in home Carlsberg Stadium action against Sharnbrook, the hosts seeking just their second home win of the season against a Sharnbrook side that has won just one of their last seven away outings.
The final action being due at Steppingley Road,the venue at which hosts Flitwick Town entertain Wilshamstead.With The Town having won just three times on home soil this season you would perhaps fancy the visitors who have been beaten just twice on the road this season to at least obtain a share of the spoils.
The top game of the afternoon in division one comes on The Green where Ickwell & Old Warden still unbeaten on home soil this season face local rivals Sandy.The visitors, having been beaten at just Marston Shelton Rovers and Lidlington United Sports on the road this season looking for revenge for their defeat at Bedford Road back in early October.
Of the other title contenders, Lidlington United Sports now unbeaten in their last 11 league outings head to Harvey Close to face a Caldecote Reserves side that has failed to win any of their last three outings and for Bedford Sports Athletic,it’s home Cople Playing Field action against bottom of the table Meltis Albion. Whilst Marston Shelton Rovers now unbeaten in their last 12 league outings head for Groveside and a meeting with hosts Henlow.
Over at King George VI Playing Fields, Kings AFC will start firm favourites to collect the spoils when visited by an AFC Kempston Town & Bedford College Reserves side that has lost its last six away outings.At Pirton Recreation Ground, Lea Sports PSG now unbeaten in their last five games could well collect the spoils against the visiting Luton Boys who have won just the once on the road this season.
The final action in this division coming at Greenfield Road,the venue at which Westoning seek just their second home win of the season when called upon by FC Meppershall.
The division two league programme is one of just three games.In Stockwood Park you would expect hosts Sundon Park Rangers to collect the spoils when visited by local rivals Stopsley Park.That comment also applies to Pavenham when in Mowsbury Park they receive a visit from bottom of the table Great Barford who are yet to win a game this season.
The third game comes over at Solway Road North, where Co-op Sports beaten just twice on home soil this season host a M & DH Oakley side that has won two of its last three away outings.
For two other division two clubs the action comes via a Jubilee Cup first round tie, when at The Warren, hosts Elstow Abbey take on Marabese Ceramics for which a home semi-final tie against Pavenham awaits the winners.
