The city side host fierce rivals Old Northamptonians in a Northants Premier Division match at Bretton Gate on Saturday (11am) and then start their ECB National Club Championship at home to Hertfordshire Premier League club Hertford on Sunday (1pm).

The ECB Club Championship is a 40-over contest with Town keen to go better than last season’s run to the area final where they were controversially beaten by a Cambridge Granta side strengthened by players from other clubs.

Town couldn’t approach a big weekend in a much better frame of mind. Six competitive matches in the Northants League and Rutland League have delivered six wins so far. They currently share leadership of the Premier Division with newly-promoted Kislingbury Temperance who host Oundle Town on Saturday.
