Locals play away
Spalding United and Stamford AFC will be among Peterborough Sports’ main rivals in Division One South this season,
Spalding surprised many with a third-place finish last season, a campaign that ended with a narrow promotion play-off final defeat at Witton Albion.
Stamford were the great under-achievers, but were possibly distracted by a clubrecord run to the first round of the FA Cup when they were beaten at League Two side Hartlepool.
Both are away on the opening day with Spalding travelling to Stocksbridge Park Steels - the team they beat in the play-off semi-finals last season - while Stamford are at Market Drayton Town.
Both are at home next Tuesday (August 15) with Spalding hosting Corby Town and Stamford entertaining Carlton Town.
Corby are expected to be one of the big hitters at this level.
