The weather forecast suggests there’s a distinct possibility that there could be several matches played in the Samba Nottinghamshire Senior League, supported by Euro Soccer Company, this weekend.
Action gets underway in the Premier Division on Friday night when Stapleford Town, who are nominally the home side, meet Eastwood CFC Development at their Pro:Direct Stadium while Wollaton will also be taking the opportunity to play on 3G as they host AFC Dunkirk at Greenwich Avenue.
On Saturday Southwell City, who moved back to the top of the table on goal difference with a midweek win over Aslockton & Orston, entertain Burton Joyce at the War Memorial Ground while Bingham Town, who they share the summit with, welcome FC Cavaliers to Butt Field.
Calverton Miners Welfare will have to do without the suspended Corey Ashley for their trip to Harvey Hadden Stadium to play Bilborough Town. After their midweek reverse, Aslockton & Orston will try and get back to winning ways as Awsworth Villa visit Spa Lane.
Woodthorpe Park Rangers host Cotgrave at Greenwich Avenue while Keyworth United welcome Attenborough to Platt Lane and Magdala Amateurs head to St Giles to take on Sandiacre Town.
In Division One, leaders AFC Top Valley are hoping to return to action for the first time in nearly a month with a trip to Regatta Way to face third placed West Bridgford AFC. Ruddington Village, 15 points behind Top Valley but with four games in hand, entertain Radcliffe Olympic at Elms Park.
Beeston can break into the top three if West Bridgford lose and they win on their travels at Station Road against Kirton Brickworks.
Ravenshead have a doubt over player-chairman Mark Yates for their away match against Wollaton Reserves at Weirfields but have Brent Horton back after nine weeks out through injury. Josh Deakin, a central defender signed from Pinxton, goes straight into the squad and the Reds are hoping to conclude the signing of one more player before the weekend.
In Division Two, it’s first versus second as United Grays host Ruddington Village Reserves at Eagle Valley. Stapleford Town Reserves will attempt to capitalise on any slip up by Ruddington to move into the top two as they travel to Basil Russell Park to play Pythian.
