Anyone who misses derby matches between Posh and Cobblers should head down to Chestnut Avenue on Saturday.

The Peterborough & District League Rep XI take on the Northampton Town League at Peterborough Northern Star’s Mick George Arena (3pm) in the preliminary round of the FA Inter-League Cup.

Club rivalry between city sides and their East Midlands rivals can be as fierce as that found in professional football.

The Peterborough League side is managed by Darren Fogg, one of local football’s most decorated players.

Fogg said: “It will be a tough, physical and very competitive game. It’s always the same when teams from Peterborough and Northampton go head-to-head.

“I watched our opposition play a friendly and they looked like they knew what they were doing. There were some experienced heads in their side.

“But I like the look of my team as virtually all of them have played at United Counties League level so I’m quietly confident.

“Our aim is to reach the second round for the first time and we have to win two games to achieve it.

“The atmosphere in the squad has been brilliant and the management team are doing all we can to make sure the players only have to worry about turning up and playing.”

Fogg has picked a squad of 16, although Oakham striker Lewis Leckie has pulled out because of injury.

Coates provide more players than any other squad so Fogg was hoping they didn’t pick up any injuries in last night’s Peterborough Premier Division game with at Deeping.

Squad: Lewis Moat, Joe Butterworth, Kevin Gilbert, Matt Heron, Jake Pell (all Coates), Kyle Orange (ICA), Phil Groves, Billy King, Ian Bradbury (all Moulton Harrox), Chris Hansford, Ben Daly and Stephen Mastin (all Netherton), Matt Holland (Oakham), Ben Panting, Jason Dunn (both Stilton), Ben Derbyshire (Thorney)

Admission to the big game is £3 adults, £1 concessions.
