The city side endured a miserable May as three successive washed out matches and no Northants Premier Division fixture last weekend left them stranded in mid-table.

Town also suffered a second Northants T20 cancellation of the month on Tuesday when Rushden & Higham failed to raise a side for a trip to the city.

But a shock defeat for leaders Old Northamptonians at the hands of Brigstock last weekend was a boost. ONs take on second-placed Finedon tomorrow (June 5) so Town will make up some ground as long as they beat lowly Horton House at the Gate (11am).
