This Saturday Kidlington FC are back in action and take on North Leigh FC at Yarnton Road Stadium in the Evo-stik Southern League Division One Central, kick off 3:00pm.
Kidlington now back under the management of Julian McCalmon, who replaced Ady Fuller, will be looking to take maximum points for this match. If they can achieve this it will be for only the second time this season. North Leigh after starting the season brightly have now lost their last 6 league matches so if Kidlington are to start mounting a recovery themselves it's it is hoped it will start in this local derby game.
Training in preparation for this game has gone extremely well with all the new players integrating with the existing squad member's and McCalmon told me he's now "thoroughly looking forward to the challenge of keeping Kidlington in the Southern League".
McCalmon has brought in several new players to the Kidlington squad, some old and some new faces in the last two weeks or so and for this game he will also have prolific striker Anaclet Odhiambo and ex-Didcot Town defender Jack Bernesconi available to him.
Anaclet Odhiambo left along with McCalmon at the end of last season, "but it's always nice to have a goal scorer of his quality back at the club" said McCalmon.
Squad For Saturday - Sam Warrell, Jack Quainton, Tommy Castle, Tom Franklin, Jack Bernasconi, Ben Willoughby, Bradley Singh, Ollie Stanbridge, Nathan Bott, Liam Carroll, James Organ, Nick Thorne, Anaclet Odhiambo, Harry Williams, Declan Benjamin, Piers McGlynn & Elliott Osborne-Riicketts.
