Saints make their debut in Trophy!

by Simon Clark

When the Saints clinched promotion on the last day of the season back in May 2013 the realism of not playing in the FA Vase soon sunk in for many but now being a Step 4 football club we embark on a new journey in the FA Trophy. Saturday means that once again we will be making history.

Once again we will be visiting a new team. One that we have never played against before and yet again there is a coach journey involved. If you are looking to travel by coach then places have been selling fast. Please use the contact us page for enquiries.

Rainworth MW play in The Evo-Stik Northern Premier (First Division South) league and are currently sitting in 7th position. In the 13 games they have played to date, this season they have won 6, drawn 2 and lost 5. In recent weeks they have seen a change in management and a number of players have also come in.

We are sure to take with us an excellent crowd once again to cheer the lads on to the next round. In the next round (1st Qualifying Round) the winners are away to either Kettering Town or Romulus. This match will be played on Saturday 19th October 2013.

We hope you all have a safe journey and great day out in Rainworth.
