Locals play away

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - SPORT -

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.
